Sony is pretty sure you’re going to like the camera technology that’s found in their new Xperia V smartphone. Why? Because it makes for a better image quality than in the past (less haze, parallax issues) as well as a thinner and lighter handset. The tech is called “sensor-on-lens” and it essentially lets Sony remove an extra layer of glass from the camera.
With the sensor-on-lens touch technology, the phone is also made lighter and thinner, as an extra glass layer is removed (as needed in conventional handset stackups using a discrete touch sensor). This technology also moves the image plane closer to you as a user, which makes it feel like you are actually touching the image itself.
