Sony today announced that it will begin pushing out a new firmware update for the Xperia T [specifications] and Xperia TX smartphone. The new update adds a number of new features but leaves Android at version 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. These are:
- Wi-Fi Miracast Screen Mirroring which allows you to wirelessly pair your Xperia T to your TV and share your interface on the TV.
- Extended standby mode which improves standby time by up to four times by disabling certain functions (like Wi-Fi) when the display has been in sleep mode for a few minutes.
- Improvements to a number of Sony media applications such as Walkman and Movies
- HD Voice
The update will be rolled out gradually. It will be available via OTA or through PC Companion or Bridge for Mac. It will also be pushed out to the Xperia TX (without HD Voice).
The Sony Xperia T will launch in Canada later this month with a number of carriers.
