Sony Mobile is launching its latest Android smartphone, the Sony Xperia V, this Saturday across all three local telcos.

Sporting a large 13MP camera lens, Sony's first 4G, or LTE, smartphone has a 4.3-inch display with a screen resolution of 720 x 1,280 pixels. Powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, the dust resistant phone is also waterproof and able to stay immersed in water for 30 minutes, up to a depth of one metre.

Boasting wireless features such as near field communication (NFC), which lets you send data to other NFC-enabled devices with a tap, the Android 4.0 device, priced at $698, will receive the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update in Q1 2013.
