Learn all about the features and powerful technologies behind this smartphone.
Every detail, carefully crafted
Truer, brighter colours
Built with advanced Sony TV technologies, this slim smartphone boasts an impressive screen. The high-resolution 5.3” HD TRILUMINOS™ Display for mobile brings you redder reds and bluer blues. And thanks to IPS you also get an excellent viewing angle and accurate colours from edge to edge.
TRILUMINOS™ Display for mobile – astonishingly authentic colours
Unique to Sony, TRILUMINOS™ display technology creates incredibly true, natural colour shades – just the way you want them. Hard-to-reproduce reds, aqua blues and emerald greens are displayed beautifully, making landscapes and seascapes appear more vivid. Faces look better too, with natural skin tones.
With Sony’s own unique display innovation, the TRILUMINOS™ display delivers a significantly wider colour range, which gives a far more natural and vivid viewing experience with a heightened sense of depth.
Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 – True Screen intelligence
The second generation of our acclaimed Mobile BRAVIA® Engine, Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 delivers an even better viewing experience by adding new real-time contrast optimisation to the sharpness enhancement, high-quality colour management and noise reduction. Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 is also able to analyse content type and adjust the image accordingly. Adding Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 to the Reality Display makes for the most intelligent HD mobile phone screen
(1) Contrast enhancement
Contrast in images and video is enhanced by making the darkest parts slightly darker, which brings out details in the picture.
(2) Colour management
Colour saturation is increased for specified colour ranges, which makes the colours deeper and more vivid. And the intelligent Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 software reproduces skin colour exactly as it appears to the naked eye.
(3) Noise reduction
Distortion and noise are reduced when streaming low-quality video from online sources, such as YouTube. Noise is reduced both to individual frames and between frames, for clearer viewing.
(4) Sharpness filter
The Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 applies a sharpness filter to increase the overall detail level in the image. This is done by enhancing the edges and contrast without increasing noise.
An 8 MP camera for amazing picture quality
The super slim Xperia T3 comes with an 8 MP camera featuring Exmor RS™ for mobile, allowing you to take exceptional pictures even in challenging lighting conditions. You can also take great selfies, thanks to the high quality 1.1 MP front camera. And with HDR for both photo and video, everything you shoot will come out with beautiful, natural colours – even when backlit.
Superior auto. Superior photos.
From illuminated night views to close-up macro photos, Superior Auto recognises up to 36 scene types and adjusts the settings automatically, to help you get the best photos anywhere, at any time. As the default camera mode, Superior Auto turns HDR on or off depending on your scene. HDR mode takes multiple shots with varied exposures and then merges them together to make your photos look natural – even in backlit conditions.
HDR for photos – natural colours in any light
HDR (High Dynamic Range) is an imaging technology used to capture clear photos against strong backlight. With HDR, your Android smartphone captures the same image at different exposure levels and layers them to create one optimised photo. And thanks to HDR for video, you can film in high contrast situations. You get great footage, even if your subject stands in front of a window or the setting sun.
Exmor RS™ for mobile – stunning shots in any light
The camera is built with the same modules as leading Sony cameras. Exmor RS™ for mobile is an evolution of our Sony image sensor technology, with a next-generation BSI light sensor. By adopting the technology of luminance and colour noise reduction, we’ve created a camera that snaps highly detailed shots with low noise – even in challenging lighting conditions. You’re now also able to reproduce objects in more vivid colours and capture night images and faces with stunning clarity.
Shoot perfect videos with SteadyShot™
Shooting a steady video with an everyday smartphone isn’t easy. With the Xperia T3, it’s a different story. SteadyShot compensates for your movements, giving smoother pans and a more stable image even in Full HD 1080 video. The outcome is gorgeously steady videos.
Pre-installed Sony camera apps

Portrait retouch – style your close-ups
Make your subjects more photogenic than ever before. This fun app will let you apply different styles to your portrait – and you can check the change in real time, before capturing the shot.

More camera apps to download
Besides the Xperia camera apps that come pre-installed, there’s a whole range of extra apps for you to enjoy. Simply go into your camera viewfinder, turn on Superior Auto and then click on ‘+Apps’ to see which ones you can download. And as new apps are continuously being released, your camera will always be able to offer you fresh and exciting experiences.
Quad-core processor – lightning speed performance
Run multiple apps simultaneously, surf the web with shorter loading time and stream beautifully lag-free videos. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.4 GHz Quad-core processor gives you performance and speed without draining your battery. The processor is asynchronous, which means each core is powered up and down independently. So you get the precise amount of power when you need it, without wasting power when you don’t.
Ultra-fast LTE/4G technology
Your Xperia smartphone has a built-in LTE/4G modem. This enables blazing internet connections with up to 150 Mbit/s download and 50 MBit/s upload speeds.
Significantly improve battery life with Battery STAMINA Mode
Smartphones use a lot of power, even when you’re not actively using them. All those apps you have on your Android smartphone may still be running in the background, draining your battery. Battery STAMINA Mode minimises battery drain. It recognises when you’re not using your display and automatically turns off the functions you don’t need, while keeping the notifications you want. As soon as you press the power button to wake up your screen, everything is up and running again.
