International Sony Xperia GX aka LT29i hands-on and 1080p sample leak (video)

International Sony Xperia GX aka LT29i hands-on and 1080p sample leak (video)
Now how will Sony name the LT29i, which seems to be the international version of the Xperia GX, is still a mystery, but the handset has already received a preview, and now we have video hands-ons, and a 1080p camera capture sample.

We should know the name for certain August 29, when the grand unveiling is expected. As a reminder, the phone sports a 4.6" HD display with the Mobile BRAVIA engine, and is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, placing it up there with al the high-ends. Its main selling points are also the new 13MP backlit sensor with "stacked" design, and the thin 8.6mm body, which, together with the clean front with no physical buttons, make it easier to handle with one hand than the other flagships.

The folks that handled it say this is a prototype that has been conceived and produced a while ago, hence the Sony Ericsson logo still, but they claim the final product will look the same, and ditch the prototype logo for the strictly "Sony" branding, as the other new Xperias. We wish the viewing angles of the screen were better, but let's not prejudge before we get the final unit for review. One thing is for sure, Sony is not good at keeping secrets, and we are enjoying every leak of it.

I didn't think it'd be this good. Wow. +1 for Sony for using onscreen buttons!! :D When Sony gets this good, who needs HTC? As long as it has 2 GB of RAM... just wow.

HTC or Sony... They are just the frenemies... I think you should know the history background between two of them... They corporate a lot...

I know mandarin Translation : This is the international version of the Xperia GX Comes with on screen buttons that glow when you touch them The buttons change with your orientation But it does takes up some space during playing video games The advantage of that is that the buttonless design looks cleaner And when you press the multitask button you get small icons on the bottom The icons are for small widgets that float on the screen similar to touchwiz for tablet The + is for adding new small widgets , you can get more at the play store The small widgets include timer , calculator Last , it handles 1080p videos beautifully

Hopefully, U.S. residents will be able to get a timely release in the States unlike the Ion. Hopefully AT&T can get this in their lineup, I'd sure be interested.
