The next phone in Sony’s lineup has been so far known as the Sony LT30p “Mint”. The phone looks to be quite a killer device, with specs better than the Xperia S and the Ion. The Mint, interestingly, has on-screen buttons with Ice Cream Sandwich OS. This would be a first for a Sony phone.
According to a report by GSM Arena, the website of the DLNA lists the Sony LT30p Mint as the Sony Xperia T, which makes it a member of the single letter Xperia family. The DLNA page for the phone doesn’t give much information other than the name, and the fact that the phone will be DLNA-certified.
More information on the phone might be available on August 29, when Sony holds an event just before IFA starts. It is very likely that Sony will announce the Sony LT30p Mint at the event.
