Sony Xperia TSony 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.

Sony Mobile CommunicationsWe may finally know the oft-rumoured Sony Hayabusa (LT29i) smartphone’s official name. Citing a “trusted” source, XperiaBlog expects the device, very similar to the Sony Xperia GX for the Japanese market, to hit the market as the Sony Xperia TX.

The name is quite similar to that of the Sony Mint (LT30p) which is expected to be known as the Sony Xperia T. Given that the two devices are very similar, the names certainly make sense.

The report adds that the Xperia T could get wider distribution and greater marketing attention (including showing up in Skyfall, the next James Bond movie) than the Xperia TX.

The Sony Xperia TX could be announced as early as the end of the month at Sony’s August 29th IFA 2012 press event. Other expected devices include the Xperia T among the Xperia Tablet S among others.
