Sony Yuga

According to a variety of leaks and rumors, Sony is working on a couple of new Xperia flagship devices of its own, the Yuga and the Odin, although they’re yet to get official.

While waiting for the company to reveal more details about these devices, we have been pointed to a Sony-related conversation taking place on the xda-developers Forum, where senior member Spectre 51 had more details to share about the two devices.

Apparently the Sony Xperia Yuga is a 5-inch smartphone that will feature a 1080p display, 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM Exmor Camera sensor and 1080p HDR video recording and 2400mAh battery. The device is also going to be water and dust resistant.

Curiously though, the Sony Xperia Odin will share some of the Yuga’s characteristics. According to the same thread, the device will have the same design, and same CPU as the Yuga, while its battery will be slightly smaller at 2300mAh:

Okay got to see some info. The Odin is slightly smaller dimensions but barely. Same CPU. s4 Pro quad core 1.5ghz 2gb ram. Both will have exmor camera sensor and do 1080p hdr video.
Only real difference I could see was the battery elements resistance of the yuga and the yuga has something called digital touch that wasn’t listed for the odin. Not sure what that is. Yuga will be the flagship. These phones look amazing. So looking forward to them. Yuga is calling my name.

Both devices will apparently be made of glass, “front and back (shatter proof film both sides)” and they should be released at some point in March/April 2013, although it’s not known which model will come to the States.

We’ll be back with more details about the Yuga and the Odin the minute we have them. In the mean time, let’s hear it from phablet fans out there, are you looking forward for Sony’s 5-inch devices?

Thanks, tipster!
