For the past couple of months, weâ€™ve been hearing rumors about an Xperia with the same or even larger screen than Sony’s current flagship device Xperia Ion. We didnâ€™t buy in to the thought at first, until we saw these leaked photos which seem very convincing.
Dubbed as Sony Xperia GX LT29i or Hayabusa, this device is rumored to replace the Japanese company’s current flagship device Sony Xperia Ion LT28i. This rumored smartphone features a slightly bigger screen than Xperia Ion (4.6â€ vs 4.55â€). What’s interesting about the picture below apart from the gigantic screen is the Sony-Ericsson logo above it.
In addition to the larger screen, the camera is also revamped to 13MP. The Xperia GX’s 8.6mm thin body is also a hair thinner than the Xperia Arc. Another welcome addition to this smartphone’s arsenal is the removable 1700mAh battery, a feature noticeably lacking on the previous Xperia handsets (unlike its NXT siblings).
Sony is still yet to release their own version of quad-core handset as this rumored device features 1.5GHz dual-core Krait Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960. The processor is paired with a Gigabyte of RAM and Adreno 225.
This is expected to be launched in Japan and is will exclusively be distributed by NTT DoCoMo starting August 9. There’s no word about its price or if this smartphone will land on our shores, but rest assured that weâ€™ll let you guys know as soon as there’s news about it.
