We have recently seen a few ‘leaked’ Sony Nexus X photos that were the result of a complex production effort and therefore they were not showing the real thing. But while the Nexus X isn’t a real device, at least for now, we did hear that a Sony Xperia Odin – model number C650X – is in the works. And now we have a leaked picture for it.

The device is supposed to be a phablet ready to take on similar products from the competition, including the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, the HTC J Butterfly or the LG Intuition. However, it’s only today that we got to look at an image of the smartphone, which has been apparently photographed in the wild – and I’m not just speaking metaphorically.

The image above, found by Italian blog Androic Caotic on Japanese site Rbmen, shows a device that has clear “Sony” and “Xperia” markings. And from the looks of it, we’re looking at a very large almost-bezel-free edge-to-edge display, which is quite an interesting design choice for the phablet.

The handset is not turned on, and we have no confirmation that this is indeed the Odin phablet, so we’ll remind you, as always, to take such leaks with a grain of salt.

According to existing reports, the Odin will feature a 5-inch full HD display (1920 x 1080 resolution), a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and 2GB of RAM.

When it comes to release date and pricing, we wouldn’t be surprised to see the Odin unveiled in just a few months, at CES 2013, although we’re probably see more Odin-related leaks in the mean time.

Anybody already interested in a Sony phablet?

Thanks, tipster!
