Next year, Japanese mobile phone maker Sony is expected to bring to the market a new set of high-end smartphones, capable of competing against devices coming from Samsung, HTC, LG and other vendors, and these have already leaked online as Odin and Yuga.According to the previous rumors on these smartphones, they will both feature 5-inch or higher touchscreen displays capable of delivering a full HD resolution.
Furthermore, they are also expected to arrive on shelves with 1.5GHz or faster quad-core processors, while packing at least 1GB of RAM (though 2GB has been said to be the actual amount).
However, there will also be a series of differences between the two of them, and a new series of concept renders with both devices should underline some of them.
Coming from IT168, these renders do not show the actual phones, but are conceptual images designed in line with the previously leaked specs on Sony Odin and Yuga.
In addition to the aforementioned screens, processors and amount of RAM, the two devices are also expected to hit shelves with 13-megapixel photo snappers on the back, with support for HDR video recording.
Furthermore, they should both pack at least 32GB of internal memory, along with a microSD memory card slot to expand it, as well as support for 4G LTE networks.
Rumor has it that the two would be powered by 2,400 mAh and 2,800 mAh batteries, capable of delivering increased usage times. Both will run under Google's Android operating system.
According to the designer of these renders, Odin is expected to hit the market in North America and the UK, while featuring a thicker body and a smaller frame.
The Sony Yuga, on the other hand, is expected to make an official appearance on shelves in Japan, Europe and Asia, and should be waterproof and dustproof. Have a look at the images to make an idea of what the two smartphones might look like when launched.
