Sony Xperia SX breaks cover: the lightest LTE phone

Sony Xperia SX breaks cover: the lightest LTE phone
The Sony Xperia SX just made its entry and its officially the lightest LTE phone out there, but Sony is currently keeping the lightweight champ a Japan-only affair. So how light is the Xperia SX exactly? It tips the scales at 3.35 ounces, or a mere 95 grams, and is 0.37-inch (9.4mm) thick.

The light weight comes from a comparatively small, 3.7-inch qHD display (boosted with Sony’s BRAVIA engine for vibrant colors), resulting in a relatively compact body. Under the hood, a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM powers Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Designwise, you’re looking at a rectangular, minimalistic slab available in black and white that should be universally appealing.

Sony is also bringing an 8-megapixel sensor with its Exmor R technology for better low-light performance, and the camera is capable of taking 3D panoramic photos. A front-facing, 1.3-megapixel camera will make video calls easier. There’s 8 gigs of internal storage. The Xperia SX will come with the typical range of additions for the Japanese market - an infrared port, mobile TV and mobile wallet.

The Sony Xperia SX release date is set for this summer in Japan, and we can only hope that it makes its way to the States not long after that.

Android users will find ANYTHING to nitpick. The phone looks amazing. Sony usually has the best designs.
