Also known as the Bond Phone, this is one of the latest Xperia series smartphones announced by Sony earlier this year at IFA 2012 trade fair, in Berlin, Germany.
The smartphone ships with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box, though Sony has promised that a Jelly Bean update will be available for download at some point.
Hardware-wise, the Xperia T may seem powerful, but for an Android flagship smartphone is still way behind Samsung, HTC and LG’s devices.
The handset is equipped with a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8260A Snapdragon processor, which is complemented by an Adreno 225 graphics processing unit and 1GB of RAM.
The Xperia T packs 16GB of internal memory, but the actual storage is a bit lower. However, users will be able to further expand storage up to 32GB via microSD card slot.
On the back, the smartphone boasts an impressive 13-megapixel photo snapper with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording, while on the front there’s a secondary 1.3-megapixel camera for video calls.
Another strong point of the Xperia T is the vibrant 4.55-inch Sony Mobile BRAVIA capacitive touchscreen display that supports 720 x 1280 pixels resolution, and features shatter proof and scratch-resistant glass.
