Sony’s Xperia GX Android smartphone recently received FCC approval, signaling that it could soon launch here in the United States. We haven’t heard any word of the device, which was originally launched in Japan with LTE support, landing on any U.S. carriers.
We’re guessing it will likely be sold as an unlocked device alongside the Sony Xperia P, Xperia U and Xperia S, but it’s entirely possible that the Xperia GX won’t even launch here in the U.S. and the FCC’s approval could simply signify that a broader European launch is looming.
The Xperia GX sports a 4.7-inch display with a 720p resolution and Sony’s own Reality Display technology. It’s also equipped with a 1.5GHz processor, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and a pentaband 3G radio.
