AT&T to get Skyfall-themed and 4G-capable Sony Xperia TL

Xperia TL will get Android 4.0, 1.5GHz Snapdragon, 13-megapixel camera

A new Xperia phone from Sony, the TL, will arrive at AT&T, the carrier revealed recently. It's being marketed as the official phone of the next James Bond flick, Skyfall, so it will get exclusive ringtones and wallpaper from the movie. The phone's technical specs are fairly impressive on their own, however, with a 4G LTE radio onboard, a 4.6-inch, 1080x720 touchscreen, and a 13-megapixel camera.

The display promises high performance thanks to Sony's Mobile BRAVIA engine driving it. The main camera can record up to 1080p videos, and is said to have a fast, time-to-first-shot time of 1.5 seconds. The user-facing camera can take 720p videos.

An NFC chip is onboard, with Sony and AT&T providing an Xperia SmartTag that can trigger actions when scanned. The phone will also get the ability to connect to HDMI displays through its MHL output and not require a wired power source at the same time.

Processing power comes from a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor running at 1.5GHz.

The handset will ship with Android 4.0 onboard, though an update to 4.1 is already in the cards soon thereafter. Sony's customizations of the OS will be present, and include an Album, Walkman, and Movies apps.

It's not yet known when the phone will arrive at AT&T or what it will cost. [via SlashGear]
