Flagship Xperia unveiled.

Sony has revealed the Xperia T – its latest Xperia smartphone – at IFA in Berlin. The dual-core Android phone is set to feature in the new James Bond film, Skyfall.

The Xperia T comes packing a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Krait dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and a 1850 mAh battery, and will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich at launch. Its 4.6in, 1280x720 screen packs in a respectable 319ppi – not quite retina dsplay-level.

Its 13MP camera features 16x digital zoom and Sony's Exmor R image sensor, and will shoot full 1080p video. 

The Xperia T also packs a 720p front-facing camera for video calls. 16GB of onboard memory plus up to 32GB of microSD storage should mean you have plenty of room for films, music and your own snaps.

Like its Xperia stablemates, the Xperia T features NFC technology that you can use with Sony's Smart Tags, and for mobile payment. With an adapter, you'll also be able to mirror the screen on an HDTV.

The Xperia T isn't the thinnest or lightest phone around, weighing in at 139g and 129.4 x 67.3 x 9.35mm at its thinnest point, going up to 10.45mm.

Available in black, silver and white, the Xperia T will launch later in the year. Pricing is yet to be announced.
