The LT29 Hayabusa is expected to be one of the top Sony smartphones, released in the next few months and there have been quite a lot of rumors about it spreading around the web. It seems, though, that the LT29 (which is actually going to be the international version of the Japanese-only Xperia GX) has a bigger brother – the Xperia LT30, code-named Mint. According to the rumors, this device is going to be the Sony’s flagship for this year and it’ll definitely have a premium feel – if this information is correct, it’ll even feature a curved metal back – something we haven’t seen on a Sony or SE smartphone recently.
The rumors go further into the device’s tech specs – it’ll feature a 4,6″ display with a 720p HD resolution, a 13MP camera and 1GB of RAM memory and it’s going to be powered by a Qualcomm S4 dual-core processor – a chip, which has proven to be not only powerful, but also quite energy-efficient. The device’s results from the Quadrant benchmark have also leaked and they’re quite impressive. So are it’s measures – 129 x 68 x 9 mm with a weight of 140 g. We can’t wait for its official debut, which is likely to be made at the IFA 2012, which is going to be held in Berlin at the end of August. B. A.
