It brings with it Sony's Qriocity services, including Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited. It also sports an 8.1-megapixel camera with an Exmor R sensor that has 3D capability. A 4.2-inch, 854x480-pixel display is present along with an FM radio, and an 8GB memory card is bundled with the device. An HDMI output lets users connect it to HDTVs.
The neo V has a 1GHz CPU and Android 2.3.4. Its 3.7-inch display has the same resolution as the Arc S, but the camera is a five-megapixel unit that can capture 720p HD video and 3D panorama photos.
