Sony has released the Asian variant of its international flagship, the Xperia TX, starting in Hong Kong. The Xperia TX, which we saw for the first time at IFA 2012 in Berlin, is almost identical to its more worldly sibling, the Xperia T. The main differences in the TX include the lack of a microSD card slot, a slightly thinner, lighter chassis and a smaller battery (1750mAh versus 1850). Besides that, it's the same 4.6-inch IPS HD Reality Display, same ICS-based Sony interface, and same Snapdragon S4 dual-core CPU (though previously it's been erroneously reported that the TX was running an S3).
Hong Kong buyers looking to pick up an Xperia TX will find it for sale for HK$4,698 (£375, €465, $606), according to XperiaBlog. As the Xperia T and TX are very similar handsets, Sony says it doesn't plan on releasing both in the same market.
