The CES is just around the corner, and the leaks are on the rise. After
Huawei, this time it is Sony's turn. This time, you can blame Sony's
The folks over at Xperia Blog spotted images of Sony
Xperia ZL and Xperia Z (Yuga) on the Sony website. The company is yet to
officially announce either of these devices, though they
all-but-confirmed to be released at CES.
The Xperia Z (codenamed
Yuga) which we saw in an earlier leak on Tuesday - is reported to be
Sony's next flagship Android smartphone. The hardware does look
impressive. This flagship boasts a 5-inch 1080p (440ppi) screen, which
is powered by Sony's Bravia Engine. That screen could give the likes of
HTC Butterfly a run for its money. This Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean)
device is powered by Qualcomm's quad-core S4 Pro (APQ8064) SoC and 2 GB
of RAM. The rear has a 12-megapixel (AF) camera. The phone comes with
16GB of on-board storage, which is expandable via microSD card. Other
features include Micro-USB, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC.
The other device, the Xperia ZL is a slightly thicker, heavier,
but smaller than the Xperia Z. This is the same device that was leaked
as C650X 'Odin' earlier. The hardware specifications of this phone are
yet to be confirmed, though some reports have indicated a 1.5GHz
processor and Android Jelly Bean. One thing which could be noticed from
the image is that the front-facing camera is on the lower-right side.
Other than that not much is known about this smartphone.
at these two devices, Sony seems to be serious about their Android
line-up this year. Here is hoping they showcase a few more aesthetically
appealing, powerful Android devices at CES and MWC.
