At Mobile World Congress, Sony Mobile announced three new Android phones to its portfolio of Xperia smartphones. Sony repeated that feat at its IFA press conference, announcing three new phones, including the headlining Xperia T.
The Sony Xperia T features a 4.55-inch HD screen with Sony' Mobile BRAVIA Engine increasing picture clarity. It has a Snapdragon 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, a 13 megapixel rear camera that can record up to 1080p video, and a 720p HD front-facing camera. The phone is also PlayStation Certified, meaning it will have full access to the PlayStation Mobile games set to launch later this year.
The Xperia T features Android 4.0 with Sony's custom Xperia user interface. The phone includes preloaded software for viewing movies; viewing photos, including those posted to Facebook and other social media sites; and the WalkMan music app that can play music stored on a user's phone or PC. Sony says that it will upgrade the phone to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean after launch, but it doesn't provide an exact schedule for when the update will take place.
Sony will launch the Xperia T globally in the next few weeks, though it will be known as the Xperia XT in some countries. Here are the key specs of the Sony Xperia T:
- 4.55" HD Reality Display powered by the Mobile BRAVIAź Engine for razor sharp clarity
- 1280 x 720 resolution
- 13MP fast capture camera that goes from sleep mode to snap in just over a second
- Full 1080p HD video recording capabilities and a 720p HD front camera for the highest quality content
- Easy connectivity with 'One-touch' function enabled by NFC PlayStation Certified
- 1.5GHz dual core processor for improved battery life, fast performance and ultra sharp graphics
- MHL connectivity for viewing content on a big screen without the need for a charger
- Use Xperia TV Dock with MHL to HDMI converter and charging connector to enjoy photos and videos on an HDMI enabled TV - Available in Black, Silver and White colors
