Sony Xperia GX and SX announced for Japan

Sony have announced two new handsets for the Japanese market. The first handset is pretty much of standard specifications. The Sony Xperia SX features a 3.7″ display with Sony Mobile Bravia and an 8mp camera, along with a 1.5GHz dual core processor. Other features will include mobile TV, mobile wallet and infrared connectivity.

The Xperia GX on the other hand puts Sony’s flagship Xperias to shame. The Xperia GX is the first phone from Sony to feature a 13 megapixel camera, while the “flagship” Xperia S (and Xperia Ion) feature an impressive but, not quite as good 12 megapixel camera. The Xperia GX also has the largest display from the Sony range. The GX has a 4.6″ display, again with Mobile Bravia built in.

These will be the first LTE Sony phones to launch in Japan and will see the introduction of three new applications: WALKMAN, Album and Movies.

The “WALKMAN” application integrates signature high quality audio technologies such as clear stereo, clear bass, VPT surround sound, manual equalizer and xLOUD™ with new innovative ways to play, discover and recommend music.
The “Album” application brings new intuitive ways to sort and browse high quality photos and videos in blazing speed, as well as providing instant viewing, commenting and sharing of photos on Facebook and other online albums, leveraging the great camera capabilities of Xperia GX and Xperia SX.
The “Movies” application streamlines the playback and viewing of movies in high quality audio and video with intelligent database search to discover more info about the movie for a rich and immersive experience.

Both handsets are expected to launch in the summer and will be available in black and white. They will arrive with Android 4.0 straight out the box.
