The Sony Xperia GX is a high-end Android smartphone for the Japanese market, heading to NTT Docomo over there. But there’s apparently also an international version of the GX in the works. It goes by the model number LT29i and the codename Hayabusa.
We’ve already told you about it twice so far, in one of those cases there was even a hands-on video to watch. And now we have more pictures of the Hayabusa. Yet they depict an early prototype, since (as you can see) the Sony Ericsson logo is still there. This should obviously be replaced by just Sony on the shipping handsets.
We have no idea if the design has changed in any other way. It is interesting to note that the Hayabusa we saw in that video in May had a slightly different back cover. Also, it came with the Sony logo, so maybe that’s actually the newer design. We’ll know for sure once Sony decides to officially announce the Xperia GX for international markets. Until then, we do think that this ‘early’ version of the hardware does look better. Or maybe it’s just the fact that it’s white.
