We’ve recently seen much technological advancement in terms of display technology, what with Nokia’s latest Lumia 920 sporting PureMotion HD+, and LG promoting their Optimus G with its G2 Touch Hybrid Display. Not to be outdone, Sony’s upcoming Xperia V will feature the company’s latest sensor-on-lens technology.
Sensor-on-lens, like the name suggests, removes the layer containing the sensor and instead uses a hybrid layer containing both the lens and sensor, resulting in many improvements, both technically and aesthetically. For instance, the technology results in a 5% increase in brightness, less haze, as well as a “more direct touch experience”. In addition, removing a layer of the screen display will also naturally result in a slimmer and lighter phone.
