Sony Unveils Xperia GX And Xperia SX In Japan – ICS, LTE And 13 MP Camera

Sony has just announced a couple of new Xperia smartphones for the Japanese market – the Xperia GX and Xperia SX. Both of them run Ice Cream Sandwich, and are LTE capable. The Xperia GX packs in a 13 MP camera, a first for Sony, while the Xperia SX is, apparently, the world’s lightest LTE smartphone. The Xperia GX, in fact, is the long rumored Sony LT29i Hayabusa. Glad they didn’t go with that name, though.

Sony Xperia GX

The Xperia GX, apart from packing in a 13 MP camera, comes with a 1.5 GHz dual core processor, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. In fact, I’ll lay these specs in a neat list down -

  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with Sony’s custom UI on top
  • 4.6″ HD Reality display with Mobile Bravia Engine
  • 1.4 GHz Dual Core Snapdragon S4 processor
  • 13 MP Exmor R camera sensor, LED flash, can record 1080p videos; front facing 1.3 MP camera
  • 1 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, Infrared
  • 1700 mAh battery

Sony Xperia SX

The Xperia SX, on the other hand, is the world’s lightest LTE capable smartphone, weighing in just under 100g. Rest of the specs you’ll find below -

  • Androd 4.0  Ice Cream Sandwich with Sony’s custom UI on top
  • 3.7″ qHD Reality display with Mobile Bravia Engine
  • 1.4 GHz Dual Core Snapdragon S4 processor
  • 8 MP Exmor R camera sensor, LED flash, can record 1080p videos; front facing 1.3 MP camera
  • 1 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, Infrared

As you can see, the core specs are the same. The Xperia GX is just a bigger version of the Xperia SX, with a 13 MP camera and double the internal memory. Also, these specs I listed above are the most comprehensive ones, on the web, as far as I know. I had to research for at least… an hour or so. Oh well. Sony didn’t care enough to provide the detailed specs.

As for the price, it’s not known yet. Availability, this summer, but only in Japan. Looks like the rest of the world will have to make do with the Xperia S.
