A new leak supposedly originating from what appears to be a promo video – although the video is not available to us at this time – shows off the slick and sleekly designed Sony Xperia Z. A bunch of images present a classic view of the smartphone, which is also known as the C660X Yuga, probably denoting a new era phone. The images confirm several features like the welcome water resistant chassis that sports a 5-inch display screen.


The 13-megapixel camera comes with HDR photo and video options and the full HD Reality Display promises crisp and stunning images.  The flash is cleverly camouflaged by the shiny mirror finish on the back, which one has to look for in order to find. The quality craftsmanship is obvious with just a hint of a curve at the edges that add to the finesse. The sleekly designed elegant handset has an OptiContrast panel and a slick “Skeleton frame structure” that promises a firm grip while handled.


The images confirm that the handset comes with a Snapdragon S4 chipset and will probably run an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Set to hit the shelves in a couple of months if not sooner, the Xperia Z is expected to be priced over $650 and could have people queuing up at the stores, going by the sleek looks and unique features.
