Some key specifications of Sony’s upcoming Yuga device are now available via a purported leak. The source of the information is a senior member of the the xda-developers Forum called Spectre 51.
According to Spectre 51, the Sony Xperia Yuga, which is expected to be the Japanese electronics company’s flagship smartphone for next year, will come with a 5-inch 1080p display. It will likewise sport a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and 2GB of RAM. The Yuga will supposedly come with an Exmor Camera sensor and the capacity to record 1080p HDR videos. It will draw power from a 2400mAh battery, as well. Lastly, the device is said to be resistant to water and dust.
Spectre 51 furthermore revealed some alleged information about another Sony device called the Odin. For its part, the Odin will have a smaller battery with a capacity of 2300mAh. However, many of its features, including its design, will be the same with those that will be found on the Yuga. The Yuga also has a feature called Digital Touch, which the Odin does not offer. There is no information, yet, however, on what the Digital Touch exactly does. The back and front panels of the Yuga and the Odin are also both said to be made of glass, but will be protected by shatter-proof film.
Earlier this month, the Swiss website called Android-Schweiz claimed to have photos of the Yuga, which does show a glass front and back covering. The photos also show that the battery of the handset is not removable, and that it is packed with what appears to be a power button made of shiny silver plastic on its side. It has also been rumored that the phone will have a 12-megapixel camera and run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS.
There is still no word on whether Sony is planning to launch said devices in the United States. Meanwhile, in Japan, the device could hit the market around March or April, after possibly being showcased during CES in January or MWC in February.
