Sony is the latest handset maker to field a mid-range product with a large, five-plus-inch screen size. Announced this morning, the Sony Xperia T3 packs a 5.3-inch display, and at 7mm thick Sony says it's the world's slimmest handset at this screen size. Like the Xperia Z family, the T3's sporting a metallic trim around its edge, with a dedicated camera key and Sony's signature rounded power button, but with a more traditional rounded back. Unlike Sony's line of premium smartphones, there's no water or dust resistance rating.
We've got more, including photos and video after the break.
It's powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core processor with a 2,500mAh battery, and there's an 8-megapixel Sony Exmor RS rear camera, complete with the company's AR effects and other software tricks. Naturally it's loaded up with the latest Xperia UI, based on Android 4.4 KitKat. The display is an 720p Triluminos panel with all Sony's usual software-based image enhancement tricks. And naturally, 4G LTE connectivity is included as well.
