Sony has already launched its flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z2 but to spice up the mid-range smartphone battle the Japanese company has announced the mid-range smartphone, the Xperia T3. Sony claims it to be the world’s thinnest smartphone ever with just 5.3 mm thickness. It is characterized by a typical note style of design and boasts a whopping 5.3-inch display.

Sony Xperia T3 is built with a very elegant design which doesn’t stray far from the high-end Xperias such as the Z Ultra and the Z2. Unlike these devices, the Xperia T3 has plastic body wrapped in stainless steel frame.

“Xperia T3 has been crafted with attention to detail for those who know how to appreciate distinctive design in their everyday life.  The T3 is packed with the latest beautiful technology from Sony – including leading digital imaging expertise and a vivid HD display – all within a stylish, stainless steel frame. The combination of this beautiful technology and a premium design ensures the T3 immediately stands apart from the competition,” says Calum MacDougall, Director of Xperia Marketing at Sony Mobile Communications.


Despite of the presence of the stainless steel , the new mid-range Android phone weighs only 148 grams and is easy to carry. Additionally, it features an impressive HD TRILUMINOS 5.3 inches display (1280×720 pixels) with Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2, which gives a great visual treat.

Coming to the specifications, the Xperia T3 packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.4 GHz quad-core processor with 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage expandable up to 32 GB via microSD card, an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash, Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and 4G LTE. It also sports a 2500 mAh battery, which is claimed to deliver up to 13 hours of talk time and 688 hours of standby time.

Xperia T3 runs Android 4.4 KitKat incorporated by numerous proprietary software to deliver a better user experience.

Sony Xperia T3 will be made available globally at the end of July 2014 in black, white and purple colors. However, the price has not been announced yet.
