sony logoDespite showing off its flagship Xperia S phone earlier this year, it looks like Sony might have even better phones up its sleeves. According to reports online, Sony is planning to release a new, ultra high-end smartphone in June 2012. The phone will pack Qualcomm’s S4 processor which should introduce 4G LTE, better battery life, and improved performance over the S3 processor that Sony has been using.

The “ultraphone” that will use the S4 processor? The LT29i that has been previously identified as the Hayabusa. The phone is also said to feature a 720p display, which trumps the resolution available on Sony’s phones right now. However, there’s a chance that the phone might not be released out of Japan or Korea, so even if it’s released we might not see it on this side of the world. As usual, rumors are rumors until officially announced, so stay tuned and we’ll keep you posted.
