Sony's next flagship smartphone has created plenty of excitement in the
back alleys of the smartphone world where rumours and fiction mix
freely. Here's a quick roundup of what's been mentioned so far.
reports via Chinese Forum IT168 that the Sony C660X Yuga will feature a
quad-core processor from Samsung, 3GB RAM and an incredible 128GB of
built-in storage - that's twice the storage of top-end models of
smartphones like the iPhone!
Also included in the Sony C660X Yuga
would be a 5-inch full-HD display, which means, based on what we've
heard, the next generation flagship of four big Android manufacturers -
HTC, Sony, Samsung and LG - are now on track to feature full-HD display
(HTC's is already here).
Keeping with the
Sony tradition of making phones with good cameras, the C660X Yuga is
likely to feature a 16-megapixel camera. Powering this monster package
will be a large 3000mAh battery. The phone is also expected to be water/
dust resistant, as was the case with some smartphones that Sony shipped
in the second half of 2012.
The folks over at Xperia Blog
state that the Sony C660X Yuga will feature a glass-back, similar to
what we saw in the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. Earlier, we saw the folks
over at Android Schweiz
leak what they claim are the pictures of this Sony smartphone.
Sony is expected to unveil the next generation of Xperia smartphones at
CES 2013 being held in Las Vegas from January 8 to 11, 2013. The Sony
C660X Yuga is likely to make an appearance at the event.
