While it's been releasing quirky low-end phones like the Xperia Miro and Xperia Tipo, there's one Sony phone we've been fawning over, the Xperia GX. So far the GX is exclusive to Japan, though we've heard rumors that an international variant, dubbed the LT29i Hayabusa, is headed for Western markets in the third quarter of the year.

Now it seems we have confirmation that such a device is in the works, as photos of the purported phone have cropped up over on XperiaBlog. Though we can't confirm the specifications of the device shown in the leaked images, it looks almost identical to the Japanese version, except for the lack of an NTT Docomo logo. That phone has a 4.6-inch 720p display, a dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU and a 13MP rear camera, along with on-screen buttons and Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. The device pictured seems to sport the same slimline, Xperia Arc-style chassis with a slight camera bulge up top. On the "About phone" page, it identifies itself as an LT29i.

Nothing's been confirmed just yet, but we're hoping for an announcement at this year's IFA show in Berlin at the end of August. The device recently piqued our interest when it appeared at the FCC sporting a pentaband HSPA+ radio.

With that radio, no Verizon.

It says 'Sony Ericsson' on the top. Shouldn't it be just Sony?

It looks like the true evolution of the GSIII. That aside yes it should simply have Sony on it unless the brand in Japan was fine and didn't need the full Sony brand to lift public opinion.
