Sony unveils Xperia T3 mid-range smartphone

Sony has unveiled the latest Xperia T3, the mid-range 5.3-inch smartphone crafted in stainless steel, and one of the slimmest in this category.

The phone will launch globally from the end of July 2014 and will be available in white, black and purple colors, the company said.


The phone weighs 148 gram and sports a stainless steel frame.  Unlike the Xperia T2 Ultra, Sony Xperia T3 sports a smaller 5.3-inch HD (720x1280p) TRILUMINOS display.

Powered by a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB RAM, the phone comes with 8GB internal storage and a microSD card slot that supports cards up to 32GB. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat.

“Xperia T3 has been crafted with attention to detail for those who know how to appreciate distinctive design in their everyday life,” said Calum MacDougall, director of Xperia Marketing at Sony Mobile Communications.

T3 combines the leading digital imaging expertise and a vivid HD display, all within a stylish, stainless steel frame, MacDougall added. “The combination of this beautiful technology and the premium design ensures the T3 immediately stands apart from the competition.”

The smartphone sports an 8MP rear camera with auto focus Sony Exmor RS for mobile image sensor and a 1.1MP front facing camera. The rear camera supports Full-HD video capture while the front-facing one supports 720p recording.
Xperia T3 supports Wi-Fi, Miracast, NFC, LTE and A-GPS.

The 2500mAh battery promises standby time of up to 688 hours and talk time of up to 12 hours 46 minutes, Sony said.
