Sony Adds HD Voice, Other Features to Xperia T
Sony Mobile today outlined several new features and other improvements it is adding to the Xperia T and TX through a maintenance update. One of the most significant new features is support for HD Voice, which filters out background noise and improves the sound quality of voices in the earpiece. The Xperia T/TX should both see improvements in standby time thanks to new power management features that are put into effect when the display is off. The maintenance update also adds screen mirroring for compatible Miracast HDTVs, and makes change to the media and Walkman playback functions. The Xperia T is sold as the TL by AT&T in the U.S. AT&T hasn't said if its variant of the Xperia T will receive this software update.
