Sony Xperia T Hits The FCC, Offers Up T-Mobile Ready Pentaband Networking

While it’s definitely not a sure thing for T-Mobile, the Sony Xperia T just passed through the halls of the FCC complete with pentaband support, which means support for all of T-Mobile’s HSPA+ frequencies. That definitely means it’s going to be a great phone to import, but it’s also possible that this could land on T-Mobile shelves in the future. We do have to consider that T-Mobile hasn’t launched a Sony product in some time, and there is no current indicators that’s going to change with this phone. An AT&T-branded version of the Xperia T has leaked out, so there’s always the possibility of it arriving on both carriers. For now, we’re still a little skeptical that this will actually be sold subsidized on T-Mobile, but we’re going to stay hopeful.

The Xperia T features a HSPA+ 42Mbps pentaband support, a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, front-facing cam with 720 video capture, FM radio, 16GB onboard storage, 1,850mAh battery, 4.55″ display, 1080p HD quality video 13 megapixel rear camera and Ice Cream Sandwich. Sony said at the Xperia’s IFA event that the Xperia T would receive Jelly Bean sometime in the near future.

    and it starts! This… is what I’m sorta looking forward to….

    I’d be glad to walk in the sony store and say ‘Xperia T please….’

      the good thing about sony is that they are beginning to sell their phones unlocked straight from their website

  • ceegii63

    AWESOME finally a right decent phone for Tmo

    Hope Magenta also gets the XPERIA V to replace the DEFY

    • http://weevil.myopenid.com Weevil

      Huh? To replace the Defy? is the Xperia waterproof?

      • joanna rivers

        not all of us need waterproof phones lets see i never take a shower or go swimming with my phone sooo i will also be getting an xperia T.

  • Ford_Thundercougarfalconbird

    From the side view, it looks like a slider. I’m sure it’s not, but it looks like it.

  • Guest

    Both variants of Xperia Ion also have AWS HSPA (and ATT version has AWS on both HSPA and LTE).

  • fixxmyhead

    ‘dual core’, i’ll pass. same storage capacity, battery size,screen size, and OS version as my s2. not a worthy upgrade to spend 500$ for a 13mp camera and s4 chip. the note 2 now thats a worthy upgrade

    • ceegii63

      the note 2 huh? with the same exact “Dual Core S4 CPU” since US variants need to LTE capability ergo using the S4s like oh lets say the US SGS3 oh and even US SGS2

      • fixxmyhead

        u obviously dont know and havent been following the news. ill give u time to upvote my comment back but the new note 2 are going to have QUAD cores exynos not that damn s4 chip. its been confirmed if youve seen the leaks theres pixs of it having exynos for the sprint, att, and verizon so idk why the tmobile woudnt have it. samsung has worked out the kinks with its exynos and LTE. all of the us variant note2 will have quadcores. please do some research before opening ur mouth. do u want me to google it for u?

        • ashishromea

          check GSMARENA & CNET benchmarks XPERIA T out smarts all quads , thats coz of the perfect hybrid of a15 & a9 architecture…. so plz stop this …

        • fixxmyhead

          first of all the first test is flawed, benchmark pi doest even make use of multi core architecture so the kraits have the advantage so that one is out it even says so right there bro. second the xperia barely wins barely by a little bit from the s3 and the note 2 has a beefed up exynos thats clocked higher than the s3 and an extra gig of ram so im sure it would beat the xperia t if the s3 comes super close. the point is this phone is not for me. its hardly an upgrade from my s2 seeing as it has the same screen size,battery size, internal storage, same OS version though i could upgrade to JB via cm10 or aokp but i prefer touchwiz so its ics for now. my next phone has to be upgraded in every spec dept. not just the cpu and camera

        • Anonymous

          most apps don’t utilize quad core efficiently. even if they did, the phone would chug the battery and you’d be chained to a charger.

          if you’re happy w/ your laggy pos S2, keep it and be quiet. get over yourself.

        • fixxmyhead

          Laggy pos? Ur a f@cking dumb f@*ck

        • Anonymous

          yea, i had one. it’s a laggy POS. my GS3 is so much faster it isn’t even funny.

        • fixxmyhead

          Put a custom Rom and its not laggy

        • Anonymous

          laggier than my gs3, laggier than ios

        • fixxmyhead

          You’d be surprised how smooth it is running aokp jelly bean. U never stuck around to see it did u. I its come along way

          no one cares about outdated tech.

        • fixxmyhead

          so what if its outdated the galaxy nexus is outdated too and i bet runs circles around ur s3. my wife has one and its super fast and i have yet to see it stutter and thats on stock jb rom no custom roms cus its already fast enough. even if u have jb on ur s3 i bet it has bugs. also ur s3 is gonna be outdated in a few weeks when the note 2 comes out which is bigger ,better, and faster and already preloaded with JB

          then i’ll just buy the next best thing since i’m not poor

          no u wont stop lying. just stop ur just trolling at this point

      • fixxmyhead

        what happened buddy boy no response cuz i was right?

      • JBrowne1012

        The Note 2 for T-mobile is rumoured to have an Exynos chip not an S4

    • theking_13

      Lol, so you don’t ever buy a new computer, unless it has a quad core instead of dual core, right? Or if your car has a 6 cylinder engine, you don’t get a new car unless its 8 or more, right?

      Idiot, look up the architecture that the S4 is based on, and then come back and comment. Seeing your ignorant comment however, I’m sure you don’t even know what “architecture” means besides the one involving buildings.

      • fixxmyhead

        yea buddy i only upgrade my comp if it has “quadcores” (rollseyes)and who are u some chip expert?thats why i said ‘dual core’ i know its powerful but exynos is better. look at all the benchmarks i know it doesnt mean everything but if that chip can crunch more numbers than the s4 its gotta mean something. I hope ur not one of those people that thinks the s4 is an true A15 architecture

        • eanfoso

          No offense man but that was retarded, besides, Sony is known for making phenomenal phones, while still was Sony Ericsson and after it was just Sony, they make their phones to where they are way more efficient and Fluid, clear example is my xperia x10 that happens to be two years old, sure it runs edge for right now but once the refarming is complete it’ll outpace my galaxy s2.( xperia x10 only has 256 of ram and it’s single core, but NOT ONCE has it force closed or crashed compared to my galaxy which is supposed to be better and crashes everytime it feels like it)

        • fixxmyhead

          first i never said sony phones sucked i actually wanna try one they look pretty cool i only said i was turned off cuz its has about half the specs as my s2 and i dont wanna buy a new phone that barely has some new specs. if im gonna be dropping alot of $$$ i wanna get my moneys worth by getting and upgrade in every spec dept.

        • eanfoso

          Okay by specs do you mean processing speed?.benchmarks? Because dual core doesn’t mean much when it comes to a Sony xperia t compared to a dual core galaxy or even quad core galaxy

        • fixxmyhead

          i mean i want my next phone to have a bigger screen, bigger battery, better cpu, etc this phone looks good but not a worthy upgrade for me. heres an example who buys the same car but with just the engined upgraded cuz thats what it feels like since it has some specs same as my s2. i wanna get my moneys worth

        • Anonymous

          pretty soon you’ll be holding a 10″ galaxy 20 to your face. just think about how silly that would look.

        • fixxmyhead

          Also I’m already holding a nexus 7 to make phone calls and I don’t care

          being shameless will do that to you.

          thanks.

  • Vampy

    Note 2 on T-Mo, now that’s worth waiting for.

  • Someone

    Now, I just have to choose between this Xperia T for the camera and eyecandy or the HTC One X+ for the quad core 1.6GHz.

    • EightBitNate

      We’ll probably get neither

      • YoureProbADumbass

        we still have chance to get htc one x+…its going to be delayed but hopefully we still get it

        • http://www.phonewbie.com/ www.phonewbie.com

          If they delay it too long the same thing will happen like what happened with the Galaxy Note.

        • JBrowne1012

          So what? we still got it even if a bit late.. looks like we are getting the Note 2 as well. Quite being such a negative nelly. T-mobile will get this and the One X+

        • Anonymous

          the prob here is that we get it late (6mo-1yr late) yet we still get charged full prices (599+ retail, $229+ contract) That’s why it’s an issue. No one would complain if we got last years phones at this years prices.

    • Anonymous

      sony phones have compression issues for pics. despite the sensor possibly being better, the phones over-compresses the files so there ends up being a lot of noise.

      i saw that too! even if it doesn’t come to tmo, the international/unlocked version may have LTE support for tmo, so win win for us

  • eanfoso

    It’ll be nice to get it, I’m still sometimes my xperia x10, which it still looks and is better than the galaxy s2, this would be a nice upgrade if it is penta band

  • Mirad77

    wow

  • http://www.phonewbie.com/ www.phonewbie.com

    This is a great option. The price is not announced yet tho. Unlocked/international phones cost a pretty penny.

  • Anonymous

    I’d be surprised if sony and tmo unite for this phone in particular. tmo usually doesn’t get higher end phones, why would they suddenly get a high end sony?

    I’m surprised that they didn’t get the Sony Xperia S, it’s a much better for for tmo imo, and looks amazing

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jamille-Browne/1184321457 Jamille Browne

      Despite the fact that HTC sensation and MT4G slide were both high end at the time of release? As well as GS2 and GS3 and even the original. G1 was first android, Nexus 1 was primarily an unlocked t-mobile device for a while, HD2, HD7, where is all this talk of no higher end coming from?

        i can pick and choose just like you, but i won’t. you can dig further and see for yourself.

  • Josue

    look interesting…we just have 2 wait and see

  • TMoFan

    T-Mobile desperately needs some diversity in their handset offerings. I really hope this comes our way. So tired of seeing these nice handsets pass us by one after another.

    But what I really hope for is that the issue(s) with the hox+ are sorted out. Make it happen TMo!

  • michaellee92

    I want this thing so bad. Need it for when i travel. Tmob hspa+ and pentaband :) mmmm

  • NardVa

    I’ll grab the Xperia T if I can get it for under 500.

      then i guess you’re not getting it?

    I like I like !!!

  • TMOTECH

    Why would it have 42Mbps support if it were not going to be sold by T-Mobile? T-Mobile is the only us carrier that has this function turned on. Why would at&t order a device that has this feature when it’s network does not support it? I predict T-Mobile shelves all day.

  • John

    I want one! I have been a Sony Ericsson fan since the K series!

  • http://profiles.google.com/bigdnm01 Dara Danh

    If I buy this phone unlocked, like straight from Sony or on eBay or UK. and then T-Mobile USA release it on their shelves. would I be able to add T-Mobile features to the unlocked phones, mainly Wi-Fi Calling?

  • GwapoAko

    This is now available in the UK :0) Hopefully Sony will sell this unlocked.
