Samsung is not alone to sizzle up the market with its next-gen smartphone offering. There are other Android manufacturers in the showground, who are all set to splash the smartphone arena with their latest flagship devices to challenge Galaxy S3.
Taiwanese firm HTC released the king of the Android smartphone, One X which has earned enough compliments in the mobile space. However, talking about the next biggest release in Android arena, the spotlight will be stolen by none other than Sony.
The Japanese phone manufacturer is gearing up secretly to launch one of its best smartphone offering in the market so far. Yes, the talk is about -- Sony Xperia LT30p Mint – the handset has become the centre of rumors for tech world after a fresh update from the DLNA site for obligatory certification process report was leaked.
The report not only certifies that the LT30p Mint and its features meet the standards set by the organization, but also the phone's commercial name, which is, Sony Xperia T.
Talking about specs, Sony Xperia T is rumored to come with an industrial look and boast some of the high spec offerings including 4.3 inch display with 720p resolution, 1.5 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory, 13 MP rear camera and a front facing camera for video conferencing. Further, the smartphone will be running on the Android 4.0.4 ICS operating system.
Sony is organising a press event, prior to the advent of IFA 2012 consumer electronics in Berlin. The company is expected to unveil the Xperia T and few other smartphones at the press conference.
While Sony Xperia T is expected to run on Android 4.0.4 ICS OS, analyst suggest that it will certainly bracket the other Android dominators including Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X.
However, Samsung might outshine Sony Xperia T, as S3 sports a Exynos 4 Quad-core processor chip. Further, observing the current situation, industry experts also assume that Galaxy S3 would also garner more sales, going by its performance and sales figures.
In Contrast, reports in the past have also indicated that Sony is preparing to enter the quad-core battleground as well. The company is set to launch its first-ever quad-core handset sometime in October and the device is rumored to sport an OLED display.
Earlier reports hinted at the launch of a second new Xperia - ST21i (apparently codenamed Tapioca). Rumor has it that this device will be smaller than the current Xperia S. It would boast the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and feature a 3.2-inch HVGA display, 3MP rear camera, 800MHz processor and 512MB of RAM.
Hence, it can be said, that Sony is surely heading to 'make.believe' the smartphone maniacs out there, that they are prepping up to put a serious threat against the knockout brands scheduled to release this year.
