Sony is the latest handset maker to field a mid-range product with a large, five-plus-inch screen size. The Sony Xperia T3, announced this morning, packs a 5.3-inch display, and 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 and, apparently no water or dust resistance rating.
It’s powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core processor with a 2,500mAh battery, and there’s an 8-megapixel rear camera, complete with Sony’s AR effects and other software tricks. Naturally it’s loaded with the latest Xperia UI, based on Android 4.4 KitKat. Naturally, 4G LTE connectivity is included as well.
We’ve got more photos and video after the break.
