Xperia GX to come in pink?

by XB on 8th August 2012

in Rumours, Xperia - Japan Models

The Sony Xperia GX is finally due to go on sale in Japan tomorrow and there’s certainly been a lot of hype about the handset, with healthy pre-orders for the device. The Xperia GX is available in two colours (black and white), although a third may be on the horizon soon.

ePrice is reporting that a pink version of the Xperia GX is planned and has a not-so convincing picture as proof. They say it will have a matte finish much like the other coloured versions. We have no idea when this will be available, but we may get a few more details at the IFA show at the end of this month.

    Not a fan of this shade of pink =P

    GX Update:

    I’m waiting for them to finish setting it up (Network change)

    Also, it uses a sim card that is smaller than the regular sized one in the X10.

    Full Price 72240 yen at this particular shop but if you pay at once, you get an extra monthly discount which reduced the ammortized cost to only 14280 yen (that is the fiscal buying power of only $150 US)

    Small box is comes in… close up

    Small box it comes in… distant

    It comes with very little… headphones, handset, instructions… that’s about it

  • i want red…. like xperia ion !!!

    In the meantime, I’ve really gotta run and head off to climb Mt. Fuji

    release it so quickly……

  • H-R-K

    most of the brand release 2 quad core phone this year, even iPhone 5 come with quad core. so why Sony release a quad core phone?

  • miki69

     True! But I’m still wondering what if Mint comes with 4.3″ screen after all? Do we have any confirmation that it’s 4.6″? Some sources say 4.3 some 4.6. Any idea what is the key difference between GX and Mint? Aside from slightly different form factor (sealed battery, rubberized back….) why Mint is more expensive than GX (you remember that roadmap)? Better materials quality? White Magic screen? Anything else? Does anyone know if Mint will have Gorilla glass or it’s regular mineral glass like with other Xperias?

    It’s so niceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. I love mine, except I totally forgot I had a coupon for 3150 yen off… I have to go back to the store, so they can retroactively apply it. Ah well.

    Case + screen protector = bought! :D

  • InspectorGadget80

    Because sony says they dont jeed a quad core phone yet and they know their processors better than anyone.

  • Coollead

    Three letters: LTE.

    LTE + Good battery life = dual core. Every phone with LTE has the same processor, they’re all the same in terms of performance.

    Pretty in pink just for the ladies

  • InspectorGadget80

    Bout neon orange?

  • InspectorGadget80

    Its for women not men

    I’ll be posting photos to TWITPIC while I’m out of town then make a digest post with comparisons x10 vs gx vs lumix gh2 in a google plus post after a week

  • dereknobuyuki

    Edit – this is supposed to be a reply to coollead’s comment

    The shop has ZERO accessories!
    Need a screen protector but I’m at the base of mount Fuji so I can’t have NO protector… so I’ve got the crappy protector meant only for shipping
    Cut and paste is hard to use…. compared to x10 on gingerbread

    It started with crappy docomo palette but options – xperia – preferred app.. that will get rid of docomo palette…

    Gonna try out the monthly payment style video streaming store recently launched by docomo…

    I’ve mistaken the camera button for the power button trying to power it off….

    iChannel looks to use a lot of battery.

    This build is infinitely better than the earlier builds

    Feels good in the hand. Thin but not uncomfortably thin like nec

    A woman was surprised the gx fit into her hand so easily and comfortably when it looks quite large…

    I’m sure other phones than excel in some specific area over this device but the gx is overhaul quite good with great industrial design.

    2 videos uploaded to YouTube. Video 3 failed to upload in time. Started to upload photos through the day to twitpic.

    People can find them and

  • Message to the happy owner of the GX : please post a Quadrant benchmark result ! 

    That’s the last information i need to decide to purchase the device or not !

  • miki69

     Thanks mate, really appreciate your efforts.


  •  Official colour for Sony VAIO :P
