IFA 2012: Sony unveils its new James Bond-endorsed Xperia line

Sony unveiled its new generation of Xperia smartphones at Berlin's IFA, including two models that are NFC-enabled. The brand's Xperia T, V and J models are all expected to hit stores by the end of the year.

Sony's Xperia T and V are both 4G- and NFC-enabled, meaning they can seemlessly and wirelessly connect to other Sony peripherals boasting the same technology (such as headphones, speakers...).

The Xperia T's specs include a 4.6 inch screen, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and a 13 MP camera. The Xperia V is slightly smaller (4.3 inches) but offers increased resistance to water. The only other differences between both models lie in their color schemes.

The 4 inch Xperia J is less powerful and packs fewer features (no NFC or 4G), but can take pics with a definition of 5MP.

James Bond among the first customers

The new line currently runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich, which should soon be updated to Jelly Bean. The designs of the phone seem borrowed from the old Xperia arc and Xperia arc S, and the smartphones will give users access to all of Sony's multimedia apps (Walkman, Album and Movies).

Sony was quick to point out that James Bond himself uses an Xperia T in Skyfall, which is expected to hit theaters on October 26.

The Xperia T and Xperia J will launch in October, and the Xperia V is expected in late 2012.
