Sony Xperia T Android super phone leaks out ahead of IFA
Meet the Sony Xperia T, Sony’s new flagship smartphone it’s priming to take on the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the HTC One X. It’s not been announced yet, but we’re seeing leaks spring up online left, right and centre, and the latest is an extra sharp, extra detailed photo gallery.
Rumours have been swirling around the Sony Xperia T (Also believed to be codenamed the Xperia Mint – tasty) for some time now: it’s believed to be a monster phone with a 1.5GHz dual-core S4 processor from Qualcomm, a HD front facing camera and an epic 13 megapixel camera on the rear.
From the latest release – a cornucopia of hands on photos Sony doesn’t want you to see yet, courtesy of Hungarian site nixanbal – we can learn a few more things about the Sony Xperia T. It runs at least Android 4.0 (It may be too late for Sony to get Android 4.1 on it for launch), appears substantially thicker than its predecessor, the slinky Xperia Arc phone, and sticks with the black plastic design motif of this year’s Xperia S.
Lastly, it looks very much like the finished item rather than a prototype, suggesting it’s very close to release – and that would likely make a launch at German gadget expo IFA at the start of September a likely venue for its official debut.
What do you think of the Sony Xperia T? Will it keep Samsung and Apple up at night? Let’s hear your thoughts in the comments.
