New pictures of the Sony Xperia T show unit close to launch
Invitation to Sony's pre IFA event

Invitation to Sony's pre IFA event

Just a few days ago, we told you that the Sony LT 30 or the Sony Mint, would actually be called the Sony Xperia T. Now, some new pictures of the stylish handset have been roaming the halls of the internet, so we opened the door and allowed them to come right to your screen. Speaking of screens, the Sony Xperia T offers a 4.6 inch, HD 720p display. The dual-core Qualcomm Snaprdragon S4 MSM8960 seems to be everywhere, and it is here again on the Sony Xperia T, and 1GB of RAM is aboard. 16GB of native storage will be found on the unit. On the back of the model you will find a 13MP camera with an aperture of f/2.4, AF and 1080p video capture. There is also a front-facing shooter.

This appears to be Sony's next flagship handset, the one that will have to take on the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S III not to mention the next iteration of the Apple iPhone. It might take more than just a 13MP camera to beat back the competition. As far as when we might see the Sony Xperia T introduced, it is still expected to be on August 29th at Sony's pre-IFA event. And considering that the pictures don't appear to show a prototype or pre-production unit, a September launch looks to be in the bag.

Sony is really competing with Samsung in Android world. It is very good for consumers.

about beating the camera of the samsung you don't have to worry cause its arc already does that. and the htc camera software isn't that special only thing is the multiple frame shot when you keep it pressed

Nice and design looks good, but again without Quad-Core CPU, sad. :(

Is it 4.3" or 4.6" screen? Other websites are saying that it's 4.6".

Yes it's quite obvious but I don't know why they still say 4.3".

sure, everyone can say whatever they think!
its really ugly, the edge on the phone bottom is THE UGLINESS itself!
the screen looks washed, and the screwed it with writing Sony and xperia in the front, why didn't they write the spec also?

even Xperia P looks better!

Buggerer . If you don't like the device , you should say not a fan of the design so other people don't hate you

Specs wise I don't see any huge difference between Xperia Hayabusa and Xperia Mint.

I'm not really a tech savvy and don't know if Quad-core processors are compatible at the moment and all that, but, I would really love to see Sony coming up with a Quad-core phone and competing with the likes of Samsung's Galaxy S III, HTC's One X, LG's Optimus 4X etc.

Sony seems to be on a mission to flood the market this year - which is find and dandy. But I'd love to see more diversity in specs. This LT30 and LT29 (Hayabusa) seem pretty close. I want to see an Xperia with Quad-core and 2GB memory and some more with better LCDs/OLEDs as well.

your quadcore uses cortex A9
s4 uses Cortex A15
