Over the last few weeks there have been a lot of talks, surrounding a smartphone from Sony, which goes by the codename LT29i Hayabusa.

A recent report by Planet Insane claims that by weighing up what has been revealed thus far about the Sony LT29i Hayabusa and the Xperia GX, they speculate that the former may in fact be the international version of the Xperia GX.
