Sony’s Hayabusa same phone as Xperia GX? Leaked pictures and video!

May 19, 2012
Though Sony’s LT29i Hayabusa has already been sighted in the wild, we’re still in the dark about the phone’s official Xperia branding, at least one that we know of. Unwired View believes that the flagship phone will be named as the Sony Xperia GX, the same phone that DoCoMo just introduced a couple of days ago for the Japanese market.

Sony Xperia GX has similar specs to the LT29i Hayabusa. The phone will ship with a 4.6-inch HD screen, a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 13.2MP rear camera, 1,700mAh battery, and Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich. Given the slight difference in specs, it is possible that the LT29i Hayabusa is simply the international version of Sony Xperia GX.

This conclusion was reached after checking out leaked hands-on pictures and video of the Hayabusa, which showed a phone with many similarities to the Xperia GX in looks. Though the phone in question doesn’t seem to carry any DoCoMo branding, we could see hints of DoCoMo in the phone’s menu. Hence, we’ll add a speculation hashtag to the story for now.

Regardless of the name, Sony has a winner on its hands judging from the specs of the Hayabusa alone. Apart from the expected combo of dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and Adreno 320 GPU, the phone will come with a 4.55-inch HD Reality display, 13MP rear camera with HDR video recording, and a 2,200 mAh battery in a 7mm casing.

It’s really going to be an interesting second-half of the year with so many manufacturers unleashing their flagship phones. Is the Sony LT29i Hayabusa one of your favorites? Leave your feedback in the comments below!
