Sony holding a pre-IFA event August 29, international LT29i Hayabusa and LT30i Mint might be unveiled
There are a number of handsets still that were in Sony's leaked roadmap back in the beginning of the year that have had their share of leaks, but haven't been announced yet, like the international version of the Xperia GX for Japan, known as the LT29i Hayabusa, and the rumored flagship LT30i Mint, camera samples from which we showed you not long ago.

Now we know when and where Sony might remedy that ommission, and unveil a bunch of new handsets that will surely keep the fans of the brand happy during the runup to the holiday shopping craze.

Sony is sending out invitations for a press event on the cusp of the largest European electronics expo IFA in Berlin, and we are saving the August 29 date for the "Press Conference and exclusive booth unveiling".

Sony's Xperia line up has the best designs, now all they have to do is follow through with making S4 chips on them instead of S3 :(

I wish Sony comes up with a phone with => 4.5" OLED display, 1080p Full HD resolution, 490 PPI, Mobile Bravia Engine, IP67 certified dust and water proof Dragontrail glass. => Quad-core S4 Pro, Adreno 320, 2 GB RAM, microSD upto 64 GB, 20MP Camera with Xenon Flash capable of Full HD 1080p recording with Exmor and CMOS sensors. => Android 4.1 JellyBean OS and finally 3500mAh battery.

I like your thinking, however for that type of screen res we're talking 5 plus inches. I'd say this type of Sony Flagship is at least a year away, by which there will probably be a successor in the Quad Core S5. Sony is definitely the dark horse of the Android crop especially with their reliable track record of updating to their older models.
