Sony unveils the Xperia T3 smartphone with 5.3-inch HD Triluminous screen
Sony has unveiled its latest smartphone, the Xperia T3, which measures just 7mm thick and packs an impressive list of features for a mid-range device, including an HD resolution 5.3-inch Triluminous screen. We are expecting this phone to launch in July – will it be a winner?
Touting that its “the slimmest 5.3-inch phone,” the device shares a lot of specs with the Xperia T2 Ultra, but with a more compact chassis. Weighing in at 148g, this new smartphone features a 5.3-inch 1280×720 Triluminous Bravia Engine 2 powered screen with an average 277ppi pixel density. The device has a back made out of matt plastic and a OmniBalance design with a metal frame which is exposed on its sides.
The Xperia T3 comes in white, black, or purple and is powered by a quad-core 1.4 GHz Snapdragon processor paired with 1GB of RAM. The device will come with Android 4.4 KitKat pre-installed along with 8GB internal storage which is expandable via microSD by an additional 32GB. If you have a network provider which offers 4G LTE connectivity this smartphone will make the most of that too.
On the camera side of things, the device houses an 8MP Sony Exmor RS sensor capable of HDR for both photos and videos. All of Sony’s usual camera extras such as Superior Auto, AR effects, Steady Shot stabilisation, Social live, Portrait Retouch, and tracking autofocus are also available. The front-shooter on the other hand is a basic 1.1MP camera.
However, it is a shame that there is no mention from Sony regarding whether the T3 is water resistant, one of the signature features of its higher-end devices, which we will have to assume that the T3 does not feature.
The device will launch worldwide from the end of July, and pricing information is still unknown at this point.
