The Sony Xperia V powered by the Smart LTE SIM

Smart LTE works beautifully with the Sony Xperia V

We attended the Smart-Sony press briefing earlier this afternoon which featured the LTE-powered water-resistant Sony Xperia V. This is the first time we’ve seen a smartphone running on a local telco LTE SIM. We did several speed tests and we were completely blown away with the results! Check out the screenshots below:
