Sony has been quite busy lately and the best thing about it is that they were not too secretive about their plans either. There were plenty of leaks concerning a handful of Sony devices during the past few weeks, including the Xperia Tablet, the upgraded Xperia S known as Sony Xperia SL, and more recently the Xperia T previously known as Mint.
The latter is the most fresh addition to this new set of upcoming devices and in one of our previous entries we’ve explained that the T is very close to the Japanese Xperia GX, but it’s slightly smaller. We also thought that this will be the company’s upcoming international flagship phone but in all fairness, if that’s the case then why not launch the device with the same screen size as the GX?
Well, apparently the answer is because the T will in fact not be Sony’s upcoming high-end device. Want to learn more about which one will take the lead? Join us after the break.
Sony Xperia TX
To keep the long story short, Sony’s next international flagship phone in these parts will in fact be a GX variant. Evidently there will be a few slight changes and the handset’s nameplate will also be replaced by “Xperia TX”, but other than that it seems to be the same as the Japanese version.
The TX will pack a 4.6 inch 720p display with a pixel density of 319 ppi and a resolution of 720 x 1280, a Snapdragon S4 dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of built-in internal storage and no signs of a microSD card slot. Furthermore the device in question packs a 1700 mAh battery that might not sound like much for power users, it sports a 13 MP camera on the back mated with a 1.3 MP camera on the front and in terms of software the TX will come with Android 4.0 out of the box and Ice Cream Sandwich on-screen buttons.
Sony Xperia TX Release Date
In case you’re interested in the Xperia TX and would like to know when you’ll be able to buy one, unfortunately there are no exact launch dates in sight at this point in time, but the gadget in question is expected to make an appearance at this year’s IFA event in Berlin held on August 29th so stay tuned and we’ll keep you posted as soon as we find out more.
Thanks Android Central for the heads-up regarding Sony’s upcoming flagship phone.
