Smart’s taking pre-orders for Xperia V LTE

Smart is now taking reservations for the Sony Xperia V starting today. This phone joins the ZTE T82 to become the second phone to be offered under the telco’s LTE plans.

For a limited time (until January 30, 2013), the Sony Xperia V will be free under Smart’s UnliData Plan 1500 which includes 120 SMS and 60 minutes worth of voice calls to all networks and 1.5GB data cap. If you didn’t make the January 30 cut off, you’d have to shell out an additional PhP6,500 to get the phone.

Alternatively, you can get the phone free under the UnliData 2000 plan which has a 2.5GB data cap in addition to 200 SMS and 150 minutes of voice calls to all networks.


The Sony Xperia V runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich and boasts a 1.5GHz dual-core processor paired with a gigabyte of RAM. It’s also worth noting that the handset is IP57-certified meaning it’s dust and water resistant and is waterproof up to a meter for 30 minutes.

4.3” HD display @342ppi

    Is there any info regarding the price of this handset in prepaid? or the SRP?

    Placed a reservation because of the Xperia V. Devices on Krait are fast & power-efficient even on dual-core, take the One S. As for the LTE, I think 1.5gig is more than enough for tweeting,fb-ing,IG, and some browsing when I’m away from my wifi. Downloads & youtube HD shall be relegated to the wifi. 1500/month for two years is so sulit for a device that would cost like 28k and coupled with an LTE experience.

  8. Ric says:

    LTE Phone.. ung TELCO di2 LTE ready na rin ba?

  9. The Corrector says:

    Fact check, please.

    The phones mentioned here are available on Smart’s LTE Plans 1500 and 2000, NOT UnliData 1500 and 2000 (why call it unlimited data when you have a data volume cap?).

  10. Mokong says:

    If you subscribe to unlidata 2000, there is a cap of 1.5G. For LTE plan its 2.5G. So, bigger cap and higher speed for the same price.

  11. dan_md says:

    Data CAP on an LTE plan is RIDICULOUS. I’d take unlimited HSDPA anytime. Ubos agad ang 1.5 data cap mo if you watched 3 HD movie trailers on youtube. Just like HSDPA, LTE is a hit and miss thing hugely dependent on your location and proximity to a LTE radio tower.
