Sony’s LT29i “Hayabusa” has been on our radar for some time now; back in January, the handset was featured on a leaked Sony roadmap with the expectation of a July release. With that document suggesting a retail price for the Hayabusa of over $630, making it one of the highest-priced models featured in the leak, it was clear we’d be dealing with some better-than-average hardware here, but just what would it be? Today, not only do we hear some new rumors about the handset’s capabilities, but get to take a look at what may be the LT29i itself on film.

Supposedly, the Hayabusa will have a 4.55-inch display in 720p. The processor is rumored to be a Snapdragon S4, but one of the upgraded MSM8960 Pro models that moves from the Adreno 225 GPU used in phones like the HTC One XL to an Adreno 320. The main camera should be a back-illuminated 13-megapixel component, supporting HDR video recording.

The phone’s body is reportedly about seven millimeters thick, and housed within is a 2200mAh battery. As far as we know, Sony’s still looking to launch the LT29i sometime in Q3, when it may arrive as the Xperia GX.
