Sony decided a long while ago to cut all ties with Ericsson and it seems that Sony’s decision was very inspired. Sony released many phones this year and currently the company is working on more phones, including a new Xperia flagship phone.
If initially this phone was supposed to be released under the name LT29i Hayabusa, Sony decided to pick a simpler name for the new smartphone and the new name is Xperia TX.
The new Sony Xperia TX is expected to arrive on the market on August 29, 2012, during the IFA event.
As some media sources also suggest, the smartphone will ship with a 4,6 inch screen at a 720 x 1280 pixels resolution. It will also include a Qualcomm dual core MSM8690 Snapdragon S4 processor at 1.5 GHZ, 1 GB of RAM memory and 16 GB of internal storage space.
The battery of the TX will have a capacity of 1,700 mAh which confirms that the phone will be LTE compatible.
Furthermore, the phone will include a 13 MP photo camera and a 1.3 MP frontal camera.
Sony fans would probably prefer to see the new Xperia TX flagship running on the Android Jelly Bean operating system, but it seems that the new Xperia TX will arrive with the Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich mobile operating system.
As a side note, it seems that Sony Xperia Tablet will also suffer a name change as the company decided to change the name to Sony Xperia Tablet S. This information has been revealed thanks to the EXIF data of a photo taken with the tablet.
Although we are talking about a flagship smartphone, it will be interesting to see how the phone performs on the market and if it gets a warm welcome from users considering that other phone manufacturers already released more advanced phones.
In 2012 Sony released on the following smartphones on the market: Xperia S, P, U, Sola, Ion, Go, Arco S, Tipo, Tipo Dual, Micro and Neo L ( as you can see they are all part of the Xperia family of phones ).
