The Xperia Neo has many of the same features found in the Xperia Arc and the Xperia Play including the mobile SonyBravia engine and an 8-megapixel camera capable of recording 720p high-definition video. It also features a front-facing VGA camera excluded from the Xperia Arc which allows for video chat.
A similar model named Xperia Neo V was released in October 2011. Unlike the Xperia Neo, it has a 5-megapixel camera without Exmor R. The other specifications are exactly the same, apart from internet speed, which is slower as compared to Sony Ericsson Neo. Sony Ericsson has stated that it is due to a shortage of 8-megapixel camera sensors.
