First Hands-on with the Sony Xperia GX LT29i / SO-04D (Hayabusa)


Ever since Sony purchased the other %50 stock shares from Ericsson is on a roll. The Japanese company keeps announcing new handsets almost every month since we entered 2012. One such device is the Sony Xperia LT29i better known to the mobile scene as Hayabusa.

The phone appeared on a piece of document leaked from Sony India on January 18th which revelead at that time the name, an aproximation date of launch and its price. Only two months later we’ve learned a little bit about Hayabusa’s hardware specs from NenaMark test results to eventually see it pictured in the wild a couple of times and finally receiving a proper official announcemnet over a week ago in Japan as Sony Xperia GX.

Sony Xperia GX (LT29i = International / SO-04D = Japan) is powered by Qualcomm’s dual-core Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 processor clocked at 1.5GHz with 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory storage. It features a 4.6-inch Reality Mobile BRAVIA Engine with 1280 x 720p resolution display, 13MP rear-facing camera with Exmor R lens capable to record videos in FullHD, 1,3MP camera in front and 1,700 mAh battery.

Below is a first hands-on video coming from Japan with the Xperia GX SO-04D and I gotta tell you folks I am very impressed with this phone. It got a nice curve to fit nicely in the palm of your hand, while the display I dont have to brag it to much because we all know how Sony is doing in this field if we look back to its already manufacturered LED TV’s. You wont probably make anything out of the video since its in Japanese but I thought its worth watching. Give us some thoughts in the comments and enjoy!!
