There's been no shortage of leaked information about Sony's upcoming international flagship, the LT29i (also known by its codename 'Hayabusa'), but one aspect that's remained shrouded in mystery has been the name of the device. That mystery may finally be solved today, however. According to "trusted" sources for XperiaBlog the phone, which is a dead ringer for the Japanese Xperia GX, will come to market under the name 'Sony Xperia TX.' The TX name fits into Sony's new letter-based naming scheme, and would clearly position the phone as superior to its mid-range equivalent, the Xperia T (LT30p).
According to the abundance of info that's already leaked out, the phone has a 4.6-inch 720p display, a dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU, 1GB of RAM and a 13MP rear camera, along with on-screen buttons and Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. Design-wise, it's the spiritual successor to last year's Xperia Arc.
The LT29i, or Xperia TX, is expected to appear alongside the Xperia T and Xperia Tablet at Sony's IFA press conference in Berlin on Aug. 29. We'll be there to bring you live coverage of all the day's Android news.
