By now we all know that the Sony Xperia GX (SO-04D), that is getting ready to release in Japan very soon, will be making an international release under the Sony LT29i model number and is codenamed, “Hayabusa”. The phone looks almost identical to the Sony Xperia GX with only a few signs that the device is different. It does look like an early production model as it’s still carrying the Sony Ericcson logo on the top of the device. Since both phones are very similar to each other, I would almost expect to see a new design from Sony.
For starters, the Xpeira GX has the NTT DoCoMo logo on top and the Sony logo on the bottom of the device. This “Hayabusa” has the Sony logo (Sony Ericsson for now) on the top of the device and the Xperia logo on the bottom that will presumably light up. The Hayabusa does not have the FeliCa logo under the LED flash like the Xperia GX has. The “About” screen of the phone also shows the device as the LT29i running Android 4.0.4 and firmware version 7.0.A.1.155. I hope this leak means we will be seeing an official announcement of the phone in the near future.
