When Sony announced the Japan-only Xperia GX in May, the device emerged as one of the premiere devices to emerge in the last few months. With a 4.6-inch 720p display, 1.5Ghz Snapdragon S4 processor and a 13MP Exmor R and a newly-optimized build of Ice Cream Sandwich, the GX looks to be the phone the Xperia S couldn’t be.
It’s looking increasingly likely that the Xperia GX is indeed the LT30, judging by the description on Bluetooth SIG: “This design is part of the premium product line. The main features are an attractive “ARC” design with metal back cover and high definition video recording 1080p supporting MHL output It will have an 13Mpixel camera and a 720p chat camera on the front. The display is 4,6 inches 720p HD (1280×720)) with 16 millions colors – BRAVIA SW IQI. The size of the phone is approx. 68 x129 x 9 mm and the weight will be around 140g. The main audio feature is stereo recording in high quality to support video recording.”
That 9mm frame and 140g weight looks perfectly suited for a high-end Sony phone, and we’re looking forward to the company announcing its official availability in the coming months.
