Sony today added a new device to its smartphone lineup. Though not quite on the level as the high-end Xperia Z series, the new Sony Xperia T3 attempts to attract attention with a very slim frame and steel exterior. The Xperia T3 has stainless steel edges, a 7mm-thick body, and a light 148g body. The device follows Sony's "Omnibalance" design language with very subtle departures because the back of the device curves more rather than remain flat on a surface. It includes a flat microSD slot and protruding aluminum buttons for power and camera.
The Xperia T3 has a 5.3-inch IPS display, though it's only a 720p resolution to go with Sony's usual wagon of display tweaks like TRILUMINOS and BRAVIA Engine 2 tuning. The change on screen tech is designed to deliver brighter and more saturated images so colors are more vivid, and adjust contrast and sharpness levels based upon content and user preference. Behind the display lies a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon) with only 1GB of RAM. The phone has 8GB of internal memory, a 32GB micro SD slot, a 2,500 mAh battery, and an 8-megapixel Exmor RS camera.
Details related to price and regional availability have yet to be announced. Sony also has a promotion that gives buyers 50GB of free storage on Box.
