We reported earlier this week that the Sony Xperia V (LT25i) will be launched in Japan under a new name – the Xperia AX (SO-01E/SOL21). The Xperia AX will be largely the same as the Xperia V, but will come with an infrared port, 1-Seg TV tuner and FeliCia NFC. All of these features are coveted in the Japanese market. However, it looks like the Xperia AX will also get 16GB eMMC internal storage versus 8GB on the Sony Xperia V.
The revelation popped up in a FCC document submission (see a screencap below). It clearly shows that the Xperia AX (SO-01E/SOL21) will get a 16GB eMMC compared to 8GB for the Xperia V. Both handsets will support microSD memory cards, so it’s not too much of a big issue. However, if the Xperia AX could cram all this extra tech and higher storage too, we wonder why the Xperia V couldn’t at least have the same internal storage.
