The Sony Xperia V is the most eagerly awaited smartphone in Sony Mobile’s unfolding Android range. Now, more details have been released about the new display technology that makes it a serious contender against the super sensitive touch technology of the Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone.

Sony has released details of its innovative ‘Sensor-on-lens touchscreen technology’ that will play a major part in the upcoming Sony Xperia V Android smartphone.

Sony has previously announced that the Sony Xperia V will ship with its Reality Display that incorporates the Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 and include an OptiContract Panel for improved viewing in all lighting conditions.

However, not to be outdone by the recent announcement of the PureMotion HD+ technology on the Nokia Lumia 920, Sony has revealed more details of its own display. Essentially, Sensor-on-lens touchscreen technology reduces the number of physical layers making up the screen, with the result being less haze and around 5 per cent better display brightness.

It’s not just improvements to the screen brightness and sensitivity that is benefited by the reduction in the number of layers, as the Sony Xperia V is set to benefit by being thinner and lighter than rival smartphones.

The Sony Xperia V is based around a 4.3-inch display with a 720 x 1280 pixel resolution, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 13-Megapixel camera and is set to run the Google Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

Pricing and availability have yet to be set but it is expected to launch later this year.
