Sony embraced its fans from Japan once more as it has just released the recently announced Xperia GX smartphone. The handset is available starting from today and only through the Japan retail NTT Docomo. Sony is really trying to extend its market coverage, as there are rumors stating that the Xperia Ion will be launched in India soon and of course there will be the IFA event from Berlin, where most likely the Xperia GX, along with other devices, will be announced for the European and US users too.
The Xperia GX is an appealing smartphone, having everything to impress the audience: the design is outstanding and the performances are high end. As you can see in the image from above, the looks are similar with the Xperia Arc handset (in fact the GX is the Arc successor on the market), but with a larger screen. The specs are including an impressive 4.6 inch LED-backlit LCD (720 x 1280 pixels), 16 GB of storage, 1 GB of RAM, a powerful 13 MP rear facing camera (based on Sony’s new CMOS sensor for smartphones) along with a 1.3 MP front facing one and a dual core 1.5 GHz processor.
On the other hand, the Xperia GX features on screen buttons, including a dedicated multitasking key, WiFi, Bluetooth and the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system on board (the Jelly Bean update will soon be available too). Sony’s UXP NXT software will be above all, along with Sony Entertainment Network and PlayStation functionality. As you can see, the device is indeed a high end one, though it’s still hard to compare it with the Samsung Galaxy S3, which is being the most popular smartphone nowadays.
Now, as already stated in the introduction, the Sony Xperia GX was released in Japan and it’s available on NTT Docomo.
