Sony Mobile Communications has announced the launch of its two new Android-based LTE smartphones in Japan, Xperia SX and Xperia GX. The model Xperia SX is a lightweight smartphone whereas the Xperia GX comes equipped with a 13-megapixel camera.
Both the newly introduced handset models are the first Sony-branded smartphones to launch in Japan, and can download at speeds of up to 75 Mbps over LTE networks. Both these smartphones are powered by 1.5 GHz dual-core processors and will be powered by Android 4.0, also known as Ice Cream Sandwich.
