Sony Unveils New Xperia Phones, Xperia T Leads The Charge

By 04:51 Wed, 14 Jul 2021 Comments

A couple of days before IFA kicks off officially, Sony unveiled its lineup for the expo. The company announced four recent Xperia smartphones along with a recent Xperia tablet. It should come as no surprise that Android Ice Cream Sandwich powers the whole lot.

The four recent Sony Android smartphones are named Xperia T, Xperia V and Xperia J, and they all build on the Xperia arc design.

Update: Boy, what a mess. Sony has three different versions of the specifications of the phones in three different places. We think we've finally fixed things so that they're accurate.

The Xperia T is the global flagship model. It packs a 4.6" classy screen with 720p resolution and shatter-proof, scratch-resistant glass. The chipset is a elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 with a dual-core Krait Central Processing Units (CPU) at 1.5GHz, 1GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and Adreno 225 GPU.

The Xperia T has a 13MP capturing camera with Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash. The capturing camera can shoot 1080p videos and there's a front-facing capturing camera capable of 720p videos. The device measures 129.4 x 67.3 x 9.35 mm and weighs 139g. It comes with 16GB of built-in storage, which you can expand through the microSD card slot.

The phone will come in two different versions - an LTE-enabled version (102Mbps down, 51Mbps up) with quad-band 2G and quad-band 3G and an HSPA+ version (42.2Mbps down, 5.76Mbps up) with quad-band 2G and penta-band 3G. Both utilize a microSIM card and a 1,850mAh battery.

The phone also comes with a cool recent "One touch" feature, which uses NFC to sync the phone's music playback with supported speakers. James Bond himself will be using the Sony Xperia T in the upcoming Skydescend movie.

The Sony Xperia TX also joins the party - it's nearly identical to the Xperia T, but is headed to Asia. According to its white paper it packs a Snapdragon S4 chipset, although the Sony product page says otherwise so we can't be perfectly sure. So either the TX will have dual-core Krait processorm and Adreno 225 or dual-core Scorpion Central Processing Units (CPU) and an Adreno 220 GPU. Either way the Random-Access Memory (RAM) is 1GB. The Xperia TX measures 131 x 68.6 x 8.6 mm, weighs 127g and comes with HSPA+ support and a microSIM card slot. The battery power is slightly reduced compared to the Xperia T at 1,750mAh.

The Sony Xperia V is LTE-enabled (100Mbps down, 50Mbps up), but also has quad-band 2G and quad-band 3G connectivity. It comes with IP57 certification, meaning that it's completely dust-protected and that it can last for up to 30 minutes under a meter of water.

It differs from its T and TX siblings in terms of classy screen size - the Xperia V has a 4.3" 720p classy screen - but it keeps the 13MP capturing camera with 1080p video capture and elegant Qualcomm S4 chipset with dual-core Krait CPU, clocked at 1.5GHz, Adreno 225 GPU and 1GB of RAM. The built-in storage is 8GB, but there's also a microSD card slot.

The Xperia V measures 129.0 x 65.0 x 10.7 mm and weighs 120g. The battery has 1,750mAh capacity. It will be available in White, Pink and Black but it's possible that its market availability will be limited (details are scarce correct now).

The Sony Xperia J offers a remarkable classy screen for its price range - a 4" classy screen of FWVideo Graphics Array (VGA) resolution and Gorilla glass. The phone itself is powered by a single-core 1Giga Hertz (GHz) Scorpion processor with 512Mega Bytes (MB) Random-Access Memory (RAM) and will launch with Android ICS, just like its more expensive siblings. It has 4GB of built-in storage plus what you put in the microSD card slot.

The capturing camera is a 5MP unit with Video Graphics Array (VGA) video recording capabilities. For connectivity, there's quad-band 2G and dual-band 3G. The Xperia J is quite thin for an entry level device - 124.3 x 61 x 9.2 mm - though it's a bit hefty at 130g. The battery is tipped at 1,750mAh capacity.

Today we also saw the first Sony tablet, which is an official part of the Xperia family. It's called Sony Xperia Tablet S and you can read more about it in our blog.

Sony is also bringing a set of media apps that will work on their Xperia phones, the Xperia tablet and even the Vaio laptops.

The company will also be offering a 60-day trial for their Music Unlimited service along with a recent subscription service called Access - for a monthly fee, you'll acquire unlimited access to the millions of tracks available.
