Sony Announce Flagship Xperia T at IFA 2012

Sony has unveiled its new Xperia T smartphone at the IFA 2012 tradeshow in Berlin, and the handset is aimed firmly at the high-end of the mobile market.

The device, which takes clear design cues from the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S, is the most technologically advanced smartphone to emerge from the Japanese manufacturer’s stable.

Featuring a 4.6-inch display at 720p HD resolution and powered by Sony’s Mobile BRAVIA Engine, the Xperia T is clearly building on the manufacturer’s impressive lineage of creating handsets with exceptional displays.

Additionally, the phone includes a 13 megapixel camera with LED flash and full 1080p video recording capabilities. Initially running Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, the handset is set to upgrade to Jelly Bean shortly after launch. At the heart of the unit is a 1.5GHz dual-core processor helped along by 1GB of RAM.

In a welcome move away from the sealed unit design sported by its predecessor, the Xperia S, the Xperia T will have expandable storage available via a microSD slot and power is supplied by a hefty 1850mAh battery.
