Sony’s Xperia-churning machinery has been working non-stop in 2012, as it can’t seem to pass a week without reading about yet another Xperia phone. If it’s anything as good as the leaked specs below, we don’t mind at all.

The latest Sony phone to be unveiled by Bluetooth SIG is one that carries the model number LT30, also codenamed as Mint.

Sony LT30 shares some similarity with the LT29i, otherwise known as the Hayabusa or the Sony Xperia GX in Japan. From the SIG website, here’s what the LT30 will bring to the rather full Xperia table:

“Mobile Phone with Bluetooth Technology. 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 million 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.”

From the description above, it is likely we’ll see something that’s akin to Sony Xperia P and its metal-clad body, but with Hayabusa’s specs. We do hope that whenever Sony’s ready to introduce and release the phone, it’ll come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Asking for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at this point seems to be quite a stretch.

We’ll keep you posted with more information about the Sony Xperia LT30 once we hear more.
