IFA 2012: James Bond's Skyfall smartphone named as the Sony Xperia T

Shiny Shiny’s sister site Tech Digest has headed over to IFA 2012 in Berlin this week to find out the latest from the biggest names in tech…


Sony have a new Android smartphone flagship in the shape of the Sony Xperia T, freshly revealed at IFA 2012.

Leaked first as the Mint and LT30i, the Xperia T uses a 4.6-inch Mobile Bravia 2 touchscreen, running at a 1280×720 resolution. A 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor sits under the hood, flanked by 1GB of RAM.

Camera tech is looking impressive, with a 13MP rear camera stealing the show, also capable of shooting full HD 1080p video. A front facing camera is also onboard, itself able to capture 720p footage.

Plenty of connectivity is offered too, via 4G LTE (where available), One-Touch NFC, MHL, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. It’s also a PlayStation certified device, meaning you’ll be able to download classic PlayStation gaming titles too.

Sadly no Jelly Bean here, with the Xperia T landing with Ice Cream Sandwich onboard, but Sony promise an upgrade shortly after launch.

The successor to the Xperia S, the Xperia T will also feature as Bond, James Bond’s smartphone in the upcoming Skyfall movie.

As ever with Sony, no pricing has been revealed yet, but you should be able to pick the Xperia T up next month in either Black, Silver or White shades.
