Earlier today at the IFA, Sony announced its new Xperia Androids, including the Xperia T/TX. While the company is releasing the hardware under different names in different markets, and the cases have some slight design differences, it’s all essentially the same phone.
We’ve had our eye on these guys for a while, as we followed leaks of the handset we now know as the Xperia T as the LT30p “Mint”. Those included a number of close-up looks at the hardware, featuring nice touches like a physical camera button. Now that the phone is official, we got the chance to spend a little time with it, in order to bring you some hands-on impressions.
The Xperia T/TX runs a 1.5GHz S4 and features a 4.55-inch 720p display. It will arrive with 16GB of on-board flash storage, which you can fill up with photos snapped with the big 13-megapixel main sensor. Sony’s offering the phone in three color options, including white, black, and silver. Though it may not be the thinnest phone around, 9.35 millimeters is hardly chubby, and at 139 grams, it weighs just a smidge less than the iPhone 4S.
