The smartphone is shown running Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean
Sony Mobile's next Android flagship smartphone, C6603 “Yuga” has just been caught on camera, which might suggest the Japanese company plans to announce it earlier than we might have expected.Several live pictures have been recently published by Android Schweiz blog site, so we can safely assume the device is real and Sony is actively working to bring this smartphone on the market as soon as possible.
For the time being, the device is codenamed C6603 Yuga, but it's almost certain it will be a member of the Xperia series.
Even though we're not sure when exactly Sony will go official with the C6603 Yuga, there's a high chance the Japanese company will announce the smartphone in a few months at Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which is set for January.
Software-wise, the C6603 Yuga has been confirmed to be powered by Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box. It will also run kernel version 3.4 and a new 10.1.A.0.XXX firmware.
The smartphone will also boast a 12-megapixel rear photo snapper, though previous rumors suggested the C6603 Yuga would come with a slightly better 13-megapixel camera with Exmor RS module.
However, given the fact that this is a test sample device, the final version might suffer some hardware and software changes.
On the inside, the smartphone is said to feature a powerful 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, probably manufactured by Qualcomm. In addition, it will embed 2GB of RAM and possibly microSD card slot for memory expansion.
Another strong point of the C6603 Yuga would be the hyper-vibrant 5-inch capacitive touchscreen display with full HD (1080p) resolution.
That's about everything we know about the upcoming high-end smartphone, but we're certain more details on the C6603 Yuga will emerge in the following weeks, so stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
