Sony Xperia T is HD voice certified
Well, what do you know, turns out that the Sony Xperia T had a trick up its sleeve – a feature that was not mentioned initially when the device was publicly announced. The smartphone is actually HD Voice certified, as it was stated today on the company' Facebook page.

What is HD Voice, you ask? Think of it as a better way of transmitting audio during calls – a new method that allows a wider band of frequencies to be captured and delivered on the other side of the line. As a result, voice calls sound more natural and even clearer once noise reduction techniques are applied.

Actually, HD Voice isn't that new of a feature. In fact, the Sony Ericsson Xperia arc supported it, and so did the neo, the ray, and the PLAY. Several Nokia handsets are compatible as well, including the N8, C7, and some Lumia models. However, in order for the user to hear a difference, the carrier they are on must support the codec that makes HD Voice work.

The Sony Xperia TL – a variant of the Xperia T, is coming to AT&T later this year. Sadly, HD Voice isn't available from AT&T yet. It will be from Sprint before the year is out, but that's a whole different story. So all in all, HD Voice will be an experience reserved for subscribers of select carriers outside of the U.S. In the mean time, you can check out this HD Voice demonstration (or the one from Sony at the link below) just so you know what you might be missing on.

HD stands for high definition, which just refers to quality. HD doesnt have to be specifically for picture/video purpose.

People... HD is not exclusive to vision (tv, phone screen etc etc)

HD = high definition, what does definition mean? In the dictionary, it means and I quote "the accuracy of sound or picture reproduction." and high in this case means better

So for those of you who don't know what it means, don't bash. Just make you look silly.

Oh and @sheik, no there won't be a '4 k voice', cause the name 4K is derived from the horizontal resolution, which is approximately 4,000 pixels. Unless, if they can make sound into pixels, then you can my statement wrong.

4k could refer to 4 kilohertz. Which would be TERRIBLE sound quality.

Couldn't be bothered to find a photo of the T so used a picture of the TX instead?

Is PhoneArena's hate of Sony beyond recognition???

It would be nice to get a sony phone on sprint, the question though if we did get one, is when?
