Today, Sony is looking to add a bit of a “premium” feel to the mid-range smartphone market with the introduction of the Xperia T3, which Sony claims is the “world’s slimmest” 5.3” smartphone at just 7 mm thick. The 5.2-ounce Xperia T3 is wrapped in a stainless steel frame that Sony says, “‘mirrors’ the world around you.”
Given it’s positioning in Sony’s smartphone lineup, the Xperia T3 comes with a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 720p TRILUMINOS display (277 PPI), and an 8MP Exmor RS rear camera. A 2,500 mAh battery feeds the smartphone, which Sony says is good for 688 hours of standby, 8 hours of video playback, and nearly 13 hours of talk time.
The Xperia T3 will be available in white, black, and purple when it launches next month.

Sony designs nice looking phones. A mirrored finish sounds like a fingerprint magnet though. Maybe if they had some sort of oleophobic coating that would help. Screen res is not great, but it is acceptable on a 4.5 inch screen. I tend to like Sony's designs. I wish they'd make some Windows Phones.

They can really shrink the top and bottom bezel, especially the bottom.

And the side bezel as well. LG does it really well when making tiny bezel phones. I would like to get the Xperia though.
