Sony Mobile’s H2 flagship is clearly the Sony Xperia T (LT30p for HSPA; LT30at for LTE). Most of the marketing spend will be focused on this model and will feature in the upcoming James Bond film, Skyfall. The Xperia T will come with a 4.55-inch (720 x 1280) high resolution display and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8260A chipset with 1.5GHz dual-core processor and Adreno 225 GPU. Note that this is not the same as the Snapdragon S3 MSM8260 chipset found in the Xperia S.

The Xperia T will come with 16GB internal memory (2.5 GB of firmware, 2 GB of phone memory and 10.8 GB for media) but will support a microSD memory card. It has a 13MP camera capable of 1080p video and 1.3MP front camera capable of 720p video. Other features include micro SIM, NFC, MHL (the HDMI adaptor will be sold separately), PlayStation Certification and an 1850mAh embedded battery. Sony will also be selling a Xperia T TV Dock to connect the handset to a television.

The Sony Xperia T has dimensions of 129.4 x 67.3 x 9.35 mm and will weigh 139 grams. Sony says that the handset will be available globally in the next few weeks. It will come in three colours (black, silver and white).

    Does it have LTE like the V?

  • luckystar

    can i trust cnetAsia? they said T is nt coming to malaysia n singapore?

  • Adrian

    What is the diffrence between S4 MSM8260A and S4 MSM8960 (in Xperia V)?

  • Kotleta

    whats difference between S and T processor?

  • lovebmw


  • i<3cake

    msm8960 has lte

  • SomeBody

    Now, I’m interested what’s the difference between T and TX other than the dimension (TX is 8.6mm thick according to Sony’s website)

  • Go to the Sony Xperia global site! They’ve alrd shown the Xperia TX (International ver of the Japanese Xperia GX)!

  • SomeBody

    Between the Snapdragon S3 and S4 you mean? The S3 is 40nm while the S4 is 28nm, thus the latter is more efficient. In short it’s almost twice as fast.

  • ohredhk

    There is also a xperia TX on sony mobile web site now. Hardware is almost the same as xperia t but seems to be base on xperia gx lunched in japan recently. T and TX are too similar so its likely some area will get T and others will get TX.

  • trowfd

    No the T and the TX don’t have LTE.

  • dereknobuyuki

    Sealed battery vs. removable battery (TX)
    Design is quite difference
    Potentially they have different SoC and LTE support.
    (GX is S4 but the T and TX may or may not be S3)

    What I’d like to know is if they feel any different in the hand due to differences in weight, weight distribution, and shape.

    I don’t suppose anyone here has been holding both devices in their hands…

  • dereknobuyuki
  • Lewis Chiverton

    Looking at the T & the TX side-by-side you can tell the difference between the two

  • miki69

    amazing phone! Can’t wait to get one in a few weeks! Any chance to post links for full size promo images above?


  • SomeBody

    Both have MSM9260, T has 450h standby, TX has only 300h (1850 vs 1700mAh), but what i don’t get is every phone on Sony’s website claims they have “TFT” touchscreen, but the T’s webpage says “LCD”… TFT is also LCD so i don’t get what they mean by simply saying “LCD”… >.<

  • Leo

    Not bad but I still love my P with the transparency bar!

  • Feanor

    Unbelievable that the flagship model looks the cheapest from all four models presented today! No chrome or other metallic accents to underline the arc design. Also I really lament the official demise of the NXT design, it was much more iconic. The arc design is very well executed on the J and particularly the V but still the NXTs were much stronger design statements. I think Sony is risking quite a lot investing on the arc design because I am afraid that many people find it plainly weird. It’s also a bit baroquey in comparison to their TV monolithic design which was also the associated to the design of the NXTs.
    I’ll definitely skip that one and wait for the next generation of Sony smartphones to see if they will keep this design strategy or they will come up with something new.

  • Martin

    To bad :/

  • Dacha

    I agree with you. As you can see the Xperia J and V do not have the SE logo any more and the Xperia t still has the SE log. Based on that fact i would say that the T was developed by SE and the J an V were developed by Sony. Also the V has better screen than the T and the camera in the V is also better. It is obvious that the V is the better phone but it is not labeled as the flagship.

  • Daniel

    It has nearly the same specs as the xperia V. I just love that is water resistant :D

  • surethom

    Looked very promising until the
    1850mAh battery, WHY sony WHY. Why are you not putting a battery bigger then 2000mAH????????

  • alexfoxx


    Xperia™ T specs:

    Google Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)1.5 GHz Qualcomm MSM8260 Dual Core processor ???? snapdragon S3 ? not S4info taken from official page:

  • nfs2010

    It’s interesting that both variants (LT30p & LT30at) of Xperia T are powered by 28nm S4 along with Adreno 225. LT30p chipset is MSM8260-A and LT30at chipset is the the highly popular LTE capable MSM8960.

  • m-cd

    Xperia U, P, S, SL, XS, T, TX, V, J, G, GX, neo L, acro S… am I missing one? Am I the only one confuse?

  • Supriyo

    Don’t know why Sony makes the weirdest decision. They potray T as their next flagship phone but gave all latest features in V (MB2, HDR etc.) Embeeded battery in T but removable in V. Metallic design in V but not in T. Seems they just want to release their last phone with combination with Ericsson and get rid of it..

  • Supriyo

    NO. me too..

  • i’m GAMER

    we need xperia play 2 :(

    why you never hear gamer’s request

  • luckystar

    owh well……thanks anyways

  • weeeeee8888888888


  • weeeeee8888888888

    actually its a mistake take a look on sony mobile page

  • The slanted top chin and bottom chin is reminiscent of the Xperia X10, while arched back reminds of the Xperia Arc. Have they placed a transparent strip, then the Xperia S would also have been represented. LOL. Having said those, I disagree, I think I love the design of the Xperia T. Simple and clean.

  • René

    Anyone see anything about notification on the device?

  • santa

    Both built on 28nm but MSM8960 has built in LTE

  • luckystar

    Wait a minute! Xperia T has exmor rs? Phonearena juz said that sony used rs in T n V?

  • My next phone :)
