Sony LT29i Hayabusa leaks again, it's curvaceous
The upcoming Sony LT29i Hayabusa flagship has leaked again in what seems to be a quickly sewn together collage from various marketing pics, with mismatched size ratios. The main take is that there will be the usual black and white variants, as well as the general curvy shape.

The collage is pretty blurry, but seems to jibe with what we saw recently in the hand of a tester, and confirms a phone slightly arched on both sides. The Hayabusa is supposed to sport a dual-core Snapdragon S4 (if Qualcomm can make enough of those), the new 13MP "stacked" Exmor camera, which will be its biggest selling point, 4.55" HD display, and big 2200mAh battery, all in a 7mm thin package. 

We've no doubts that Sony can pull something like this off, but whether all these rumored specs will materialize in the LT29i Hayabusa remains to be seen. The handset is supposed to be announced in June for July arrival with the name Xperia GX. The price should be about $630 unsubsidized, if we believe Sony's leaked roadmap for 2012, which so far has been materializing pretty consistently.

What do you mean nice? It's PERFECT. :p

Exactly what I wanted. Better camera than the already great camera of the Xperia S, powerful dual-core kraits, AND a massive battery :p

Forgot to mention the 4.55: HD display and 7mm profile :P

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah !

If this has an identical design to my Xperia Arc(What made me buy it in the first place) I am totally buying this and not waiting for the Mint.

Another awesome device from Sony. I just hope ppl dont kill this phone with wanting unrealistic specs like they did with the gs3.

I think if they use S-LCD2 equivalent screens this will look very good as is.

I don't think the processor and camera specs are unrealistic. What I see potentially shifting is the battery size vs thickness of the phone.

Motorola were able to put a 1,780mAh battery into their 7.1mm Razr while Samsung were able to put a 2,100mAh in their 8.6mm GS3 (HTC meanwhile lags behind with only a 1,800mAh batter in their 8.9mm 1X).

The original Arc was 8.7mm thick so there would be no shame in packing the Hayabusa with a 2,200mAh battery if they kept it to the same thickness... especially if it's going to have the same sexy shape as the original as the blurry cam shot seems to suggest it will. :)

screw the MPX count. Look how small that camera sensor is on that thing. It better be top notch hardware in that little thing or its going to be a 13mpx crap camera.

I hope you realize that this is coming from Sony.

Come on... even if one could tell from the very fuzzy shots, you should know better than to judge a camera by it's size on paper - progress in technology has a way of shrinking things down. The proof in any case will always be in the photos it produces.

But man I have to say that with specs like those, this phone could eat the GS3 right up. :)

You're doubting Sony's camera quality? Joke of the year.

What the heck are you talking about..
Where do you see small camera sensor?

Anyway my only worry about this phone is s4 shortages.
Though It's also rumored to have s4 pro so here's hoping that this revolutionary high end soc will be spared from that, and allow this sensational sounding phone to kick the competition out of the park.
Can't wait to see the new E-Dream UI !

what are the chances of a Sony phone coming to Sprint?

I want my contract to expire in December 2013 so I can switch to Verizon. Sprint's network is s**t speed and I'm tired of it after about 6 months. Verizon is only $10 more for unlimited text, enough talk, and 4 GB of data. 30 more for 6 GB and mobile hotspot.

CURVACEOUS? I call it MONSTROUS. I MEAN LOOK AT THE BATTERY. I mean DAMN! If this baby comes to AT&t before the SONY iOn which I really love to have don't care 13MP(HAYABUSA) 12Mp(iON) both are good looking sexy phone.

Sony the giant has all the potential I think to be the next big phone manufacturer. They have the design, technological ability and the massive catalogue of entertainment to do it. They just need to get all their ducks lined up in a row, which is something their new 4 screen strategy will hopefully bring to fruition.

If this phone has at least 64GB internal memory it will be the best (or the king!)
I didnt like small internal memory without microSD slot for recently xperia's

This phone will be my dream!

Even if it did have 64gb the gs3 also has a 64gb model. Now add expandable memory of 64gb and 50gb dropbox storage. Now whats what a king of androids is supposed to offer.
