Alas, Sony Mobile has not been hiding but actually working. The company has just announced two new devices to hit the market, the Xperia GX which is a high-end device and the mid range Xperia SX. The GX is a 4.6-inch 720 x 1196 display handset sporting a dual-core 1.5 GHz CPU (possibly the Snapdragon S4). In addition, there’s 16GB’s of on-board memory, LTE radios, a 13mp camera with an Exmor sensor and full HD recording capabilities. The device is being dubbed as an Xperia Arc successor and will come with a matte texture finish for its exterior. The SX is being touted by Sony Mobile as the lightest LTE phone to date, weighing in at a mere 95 grams. The device will also house a 1.5 GHz dual-core CPU but sport a smaller 3.7-inch 540 x 960 qHD display. There will be 8GB’s of internal storage and an 8mp camera instead of a 13mp sensor. The device will also come with some Japanese specific specs such as an infrared port for quick data transfer as well as a mobile wallet and mobile TV.
The new devices will come jam packed with new features such as rich media applications like the Walkman app sporting clear stereo and clear bass technologies as well as VPT surround sound with a manual equalizer. We take it this is Sony’s attempt to compete with Beats Audio technology. Of course, and as expected, both devices will launch with ICS 4.0 on board and will sport a number of photo and sharing applications for sharing content with all of your favorite social networks. Expect the devices to launch this summer of which the GX may actually make it into the states if not both shortly after their release. Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below. Press release after the break.
