Sony’s LT29i “Hayabusa” To Be Named Xperia TX

The international version of Sony’s Japanese Xperia GX has been suffering a crisis of identity, being known as the LT29i and also by the codename Hayabusa. But it has yet to get an official, consumer-friendly name. A leak from sources at Xperia Blog claims the phone has a name: the Sony Xperia TX. This would fit in with Sony’s new naming convention, which uses single and double letters to designate the relationship between high-end and mid-level phones. So the Xperia TX would clearly be a higher-end Xperia T.

It is said to sport a 4.6-inch HD reality 720p screen, a dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 1GB RAM, Android 4.0 ICS, a whopping 13MP camera with HDR video, a thin 7mm profile, and a nice size battery. This is certainly shaping up to be Sony’s latest flagship model. We’re expecting to see this phone, along with the Xperia T and Xperia Tablet at IFA in Berlin later this month.

Who’s waiting for this one?

You all remember that sleek Sony LT29i “Hayabusa” smartphone we told you about? Well, there are more details beginning to leak out for the mysterious smartphone. The gang at ePrice got hold of an engineering prototype of the LT29i and shared some detailed photos which highlight some of the smartphone’s features. For starters, you’ll note it’s somewhat similar in design to Sony’s also elusive LT30p smartphone— though the LT29i has more rounded corners. In addition, we have a better idea of the LT29i’s 720p display and solid viewing angles that are certainly comparable to other premium smartphones like the HTC One X. Among other items featured are an illuminated Xperia logo and the smartphone’s NFC chip

Now that we have a better idea of how the smartphone looks like and operates, it shouldn’t be too long before it’s finally released. All Sony needs to do now is change up the dated Sony Ericsson logo on the front and we’ll be in business. Hit the break and source link for additional shots of the smartphone.
