Among the many manufacturers who recently unveiled their respective devices, Sony is one of them with its official announcement of the Sony Xperia T back in the last parts of August. Since the announcement, rumors have been heard and speculations are pretty rampant claiming that the new Sony handset is already making its way to the shelves of AT&T in US shores. However, it looks like these rumors will pan out because the FCC already gave its nod of approval on the LT30at version of the handset.
Unlike the LT30p variant (which is expected to be released in the European continent) of the Sony Xperia T, the LT30at variant looks to be working beautifully with the LTE network of the carrier. Not only that, the FCC also reportedly confirmed that the Sony Xperia T LT30at is manufactured specifically for AT&T.
AT&T however is yet to confirm or deny these rumors but with the device having visited with the FCC and getting the commission’s nod of approval, we are pretty sure that AT&T will come out in the open one if these days to make another smartphone announcement and unveil its version of the Sony Xperia T LT30at.
As mentioned earlier, Sony unveiled the Sony Xperia T LT30at back in August and is expected to hit the shelves this September although no word yet from the carrier as to when this handset will make its debut. Aesthetics-wise, the Sony Xperia T LT30at looks like your typical Android-powered device with its black colorway that makes it look like a black brick. Its dimensions come up to 129.4 x 67.3 x 9.4 mm and it tips the scales at 139 grams.
Similar to the older Xperia Arc, the back panel of the Sony Xperia T LT30at is curved and is thinnest at its middle to give way for a more comfortable grip on the handset. The handset does look very streamlined and industrial but it manages to exude solid build quality that we have come to associate with Sony devices in the past.
Under the hood, the Sony Xperia T LT30at is expected to ship with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich for its operating system and this will draw power from the QualComm MSM8260A SnapDragon chipset of the handset. With this SoC, the handset can rely on its dual-core 1.5GHz Krait processor and 1GB of RAM to generate the computing power that it will require and need for a speedy performance. As for its storage space, the Sony Xperia T LT30at will come with 16GB of storage and this is still expandable by using the dedicated microSd card slot of the handset.
Display-wise, the Sony Xperia T LT30at sports a 4.55-inch TFT capacitive multitouch panel with an HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels while its dual-shooter configuration is comprised of a 13MP shooter at its back panel while a 1.3MP video call and self-portrait camera can be found in its front bezel.
