Sony might unveil a second generation Xperia NXT phones next week, with a flagship Xperia Z coming in August

Xperia Z is said to be the flagship, and be released in August, while the rest are slated for July. The original portfolio leak had a flagship, codenamed Mint I, but set for unveiling in September. Moreover, two of these names could be the international versions of the Xperia GX and SX, which are currently meant for sale in Japan only.The phones could apparently be called Xperia C, E, Y and Z. That
The phones are told to sport Snapdragon S4 chipsets, OLED displays, and come with CyberShot lenses taken directly from the T camera series. Let's not forget that the rumors about the Mint I also stated that it might be with OLED screen, so it could indeed be called officially the Xperia Z. The Xperia C, E, Y and Z will allegedly all be PlayStation Certified, which is not hard to guess, and have the Walkman music player brand.
Well, if this rumor holds water, Sony must have significantly sped up its development efforts, and its phones will span the gamut from low-end to compelling flagships, which means its portfolio will be directly fighting with Samsung's Android handsets. June 20 is just a few days away, so next week we might eventually see the new stuff, although all of these sound a bit like wishful thinking, especially in the camera part, and all we might see could be an international GX, which would still be something.

Fake, all 4 with Snapdragon S4? Nonsense, especially with S4 shipment delays... And why Xperia GX is not CyberShot? And original post based on XperiaBlog user's speculations

maybe u don't have an idea that sony is a premium customer of qualcomm..., they won't face any chipset shortages and even if it happens then sony has ST-ERICSSON to their rescue(who right now is sampling pure dual core A15 2.5 GHz processors equipped with Power VR SGX nxt generation ROGUE GPUs to SONY)

Gotta remember that some of Sony's announced phones this year are still Japan-only, and if you think about it so far only 4 or 5 have actually hit the market yet, they might be announced. It's still gonna be at least sept-oct time that these models are readily available though - nearly half way through a 2-year contract if you got an XS when it was first released, and plus this will mean Sony can continue to compete with brands like Samsung and HTC by the end of this year, having to build a portfolio from scratch post-Ericsson, all good news for Sony!
