Sony C3602 Spotted with 1.5 GHz Dual Core CPU and Android 4.0.4 ICS

The mysterious device appeared recently on NenaMark2 benchmark site

Although Sony Mobile has yet to launch its entire Xperia series announced back in August at IFA 2012 trade fair, the company is also testing lots of new devices.

There have been many rumors running around the Japanese company plans to release a new Android flagship smartphone, the Sony C6603 Yuga.

The phone leaked online several weeks ago and more recently was caught on camera. There’s a high chance the C66303 Yuga will be officially unveiled next year at CES 2013 or perhaps at MWC 2013, in Barcelona.

Today, a new unannounced Sony smartphone has been spotted in NenaMark2 benchmark. Dubbed Sony C3602, this seems to be a high-end device, though slightly lower positioned than the C6603 Yuga.

XperiaBlog reports the smartphone is likely to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, which is complemented by an Adreno 225 graphics processing unit.

There are no details on the amount of memory yet, but the NenaMark2 benchmark shows the C3602 sports a capacitive touchscreen display that supports 1280 x 720 pixels resolution.

Software-wise, Sony C3602 runs Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. However, it would be unfortunate if the device were launched with this platform next year, given the fact Google will most certainly release Android 4.2 Jelly Bean by then.

We’re expect more details on the Sony C3602 specs sheet will emerge in the following week, though it will be more interesting to see some pictures with the phone as well.

Sony Mobile has at least several new Xperia smartphones in the pipeline for next year. The Japanese company plans to cover all market tiers, so we expect it to announce a few entry-level Android phones as well, such as Xperia E, which leaked last month. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
