Japanese mobile phone maker Sony Mobile has made official the Xperia T3, a new, super-slim Android-based smartphone that will land on shelves with a 5.3-inch touchscreen display.
According to Sony, the new handset will easily stand out from the crowd, courtesy of its stainless steel frame, slim body, and appealing design.
The new device will arrive on the market with a large 5.3-inch HD (1280 x 720 pixels) TRILUMINOS display for mobile with Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2, which can offer a great viewing experience from any angle.
Moreover, the phone is powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, which should allow it to deliver ultra-fast performance capabilities. The CPU is complemented by 1GB of RAM.
The new Xperia T3 also sports 8GB of internal memory, as well as a microSD memory card slot with support for up to 32GB of external storage space.
On the back, the phone features an 8-megapixel camera with Sony Exmor RS for mobile image sensor, HDR (High Dynamic Range) and full HD video recording, complemented by a 1.1MP front camera for making video calls.

The phone measures 150.7 x 77 x 7mm and weighs 148 grams, which makes it a light device, despite its size. Furthermore, Sony notes that the new device was crafted with high-end materials, and that its stainless steel frame ‘mirrors’ the world around users.
