Description

The Sony Xperia SX is officially the lightest LTE phone out there, but Sony is currently keeping the lightweight champ a Japan-only affair. 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. Design wise, you’re looking at a rectangular, minimalistic slab available in black, white, orange and pink 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, VGA camera will make video calls easier. There’s 4 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.
