Sony LT29i Hayabusa makes its first photo appearances
Fortunately, we don’t need official confirmation to know that we are being prepared for something big! If the phone’s FCC approval from a couple of days ago wasn’t enough to warrant Hayabusa’s imminent release, today’s two leaks will most likely seal the deal.
The Xperia LT29i Hayabusa has made its first online photo appearances, and intriguing enough, there are two different websites who’ve managed to get their hands on some different pics at about the exact same time.
Then again, the photos aren’t spectacular, as it is now confirmed the Hayabusa is an almost identical copycat of the “Japanese-exclusive” Sony Xperia GX (SO-04D), who’s had its fair share of official photo appearances.
As for the phone’s other dimensions and its design, it’s almost impossible to set it apart from the GX, so we’re ready to bet that it will only weigh 127 grams and measure the measly 8.6 mm in thickness. Another detail revealed by one of the leaked pics is that the LT29i will be running Android ICS 4.0.4 upon its release, which is not at all surprising.
While it’s a bit too early to draw any definitive conclusions on Hayabusa’s future success, I think it’s pretty obvious that we’re dealing with a possible game changer, especially if this gets released by the end of August. Do you agree? Why? Why not?
