It seems that new press images of the Sony Xperia Z and ZL have now leaked to the net. Interestingly enough, the photos come directly from Sony’s own website.
The images arrived late last night showing off the upcoming 1080 5-inchers formerly known as the Yuga (Z) and Odin (ZL). These press shots seem to match everything we’ve seen picture-wise of the upcoming 1080p Xperia line.
Unfortunately, we still don’t have official hardware specs, though rumors do tell us the 1080 phones will have quad-core processors, 2GB of RAM and Adreno processors. The Xperia Z and ZL also are said to both have a 13MP Exmor RS sensor.
With the phones looking so similar and having essentially the same specs, you might be wondering what sets them apart. The answer is not much, at least based on what we know.
So why have two versions? Previous rumors seem to suggest the Yuga is intended only for the Japanese market, while the Odin might be the global version of the handset. Keep in mind that even with these new images, Sony has yet to confirm anything about either of these two handsets.
Although several details are still unknown about the Xperia Z and ZL, the good news is that CES 2013 is just around the corner and will likely bring answers with it. Sony’s press conference is scheduled for the evening of Monday, January 7th.
It’s also possible that Sony will give us official confirmation or more details ahead of the event. Are you interested in the the Xperia Z series, or is there another 1080p smartphone that you have your eye on?
