NTT DoCoMo had their Summer 2012 showcase today and gave the media a first hands-on look at the recently announced Xperia GX and Xperia SX. We fully expect there to be an international version of the Xperia GX with LT29i model number, codenamed ‘Hayabusa’. It seems like there may have been a few demo units of this international version floating around, judging by some videos on YouTube.
These show the handsets running NTT DoCoMo firmware but without the hard branding on the handset. Instead of the NTT DoCoMo logo at the top of the handset, you can instead see an Xperia logo with the Sony logo on the bottom. The reason why Sony logo remains at the bottom most probably relates to the fact that it is engineered to glow at the bottom. There’s still no official word on when we may see this in the west, but judging by previous leaks it will probably launch from September.
