Sony announces the Xperia SX and Xperia GX with LTE and Android 4.0 for Japan

People in Japan are soon going to have two new beautiful looking Sony handsets to choose from. Son recently announced two LTE handsets with Android 4.0 for the Japanese market, the Xperia SX and the Xperia GX.

The Xperia SX (pictured above), features a small 3.7-inch display with 1.5GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera, 8GB of internal storage, LTE connectivity, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and much more. According to Sony, the Xperia SX is the world’s lightest LTE handset, weighing in at just 95g.

Design-wise, Sony might be receiving a call from Apple in the future simply because they’ve gotten rid of the sharp angles traditionally available on their devices for more iPhone-like rounded corners. I personally think that it looks nice. In regards to Android 4.0, Sony has gone full ICS by removing the capacitive touch buttons and going with the digital buttons provided with ICS.

The phone will be available in both black and white in Japan sometimes this summer.

The Sony Xperia GX features a large 4.6-inch HD display powered by Sony’s Mobile BRAVIA Engine, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, a 13-megapixel camera capable recording HD video and capturing 3D panoramic images, 16GB of internal storage, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and much more.

Based on specs, the Sony Xperia GX appears to be a re-packaged Xperia Ion with a different look and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich instead of Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Design-wise, Sony incorporated the concave back found in the Xperia Arc.
