As if we haven’t had enough Sony leaks this week, one more leak has emerged of a new smartphone. But all we have this time is the model number and not the actual name unlike the Odin and Yuga. The smartphone in question goes by the model number C3602 and it seems to sport some meaty specs, though not as flattering as the Yuga. The phone’s existence was revealed by a benchmark result on NenaMark, which showed the phone to be having an HD display and a 1.5 GHz dual core SoC with Adreno 225 GPU, although there’s no word on the chipset inside (we’re guessing it’s the Snapdragon S4). It seems very likely now that Sony would launch a trio of flagships in the market, much like it did a few months ago with the Xperia T, Xperia TX and Xperia V. It does seem like a fair bet to the already crowded market, but given Sony’s rather late arrival to the scene it, it won’t be a cakewalk.
The data on NenaMark2 reveals that the device will have a display resolution of 1196×720 pixels, meaning there’s room for onscreen proprietary Android keys which is common these days. It appears as if the smartphone will pack Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, or maybe Sony will work on the Jelly Bean update in time for the launch. The absence of a formal name for the C3602 is rather disappointing, but we expect Sony to take the wraps off this and the other two mighty droids fairly soon. It seems as though Sony is arriving a little late to the party, although the Yuga smartphone we saw yesterday shows some promise. Sony’s presence in the U.S is fairly limited as Samsung, HTC and Motorola make up for most of the smartphones in the country. Sony’s rare appearance in the U.S is saddening, especially considering how much they bring to the table. Perhaps, Sony is more focused on Asian and European markets and rightly so. AT&T brought the Xperia ion to the country with limited success. The Galaxy S III and the One X played party spoilers for the Sony droids.
Now with this new lot of smartphones slowly revealing their existence, one would expect a slightly different approach from Sony. Let’s hope we get to see a wider roll out of these new gen Sony smartphones, especially the Yuga which is believed to have a monstrous 5-inch 1080p Full HD display. Our fingers are crossed.
