The phones could apparently be called Xperia C, E, Y and Z. That 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...

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)

Sam's Club has had the phone for $48.88 for weeks now. No more headaches than dealing with a regular corporate store. Almost all models on the carriers are cheaper beginning at release day.....fyi

Yep - Sony's new cybershot T model is already out with OLED touchscreen. That makes me want to believe the specs.

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!
