Sony’s Xperia GX comes complete with LGE connectivity and a 13-megapixel camera, but only in Japan for now
Sony’s flagship Xperia smartphones just got two new family members today; the Xperia SX and GX, both with a powerful camera and up-to-date 4G network connection – running on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The devices are capable of reaching download speeds of up to 75Mbits/s – which is just insane. Not too long ago, that was unheard of even for home broadband connections, let alone a mobile device.
The SX and GX are the first of the Xperia family to launch in Japan, their American cousin being the 12-megapixel Xperia ion. As PCWorld stated, Sony chose not to discuss the actual difference in image quality between the SX/GX and ion.
Weighing in at only 95 grams with a 3.7-inch screen, the SX has just earned the title of world’s lightest LTE smartphone. Internal storage is set at 8GB, which isn’t as generous as the GX’s 16GB, but it’s definitely enough to install a decent amount of apps and hold a reasonable amount of MP3′s.
The GX is clearly the ‘luxury model’, with a 13-megapixel camera, the added internal storage and a 4.6-inch screen.
Either device doesn’t ship until sometime during the summer, with Japan being their only targeted market for now and no set price tag thus far.
