Sony C660X “Yuga” Spotted Again, Reveals 1080p Display

It is expected to ship with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean platform

The unannounced Sony C660X “Yuga” was spotted a few days ago, along with few of its specs. In fact aside from the fact that it was equipped with a powerful processor, not much was revealed until today.

A previous AnTuTu benchmark confirmed the C660X would be powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, which would be complemented by an Adreno 320 graphics processing unit.

The phone scored 11321 in AnTuTu, which was pretty impressive. However, nothing else was revealed at that time that could shed some light on the phone's software and hardware configuration.

Today, blog site Rbem was able to confirm via another benchmark that Sony C660X “Yuga” would be equipped with a stunning display supporting 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution.

Although the size of the screen is still a mystery, we can safely assume the smartphone's display will have at least 5 inches, otherwise the full HD (1080p) resolution wouldn't have been possible.

The guys over at XperiaBlog speculate that Sony C660X's display could be produced by Japan Display, a company formed recently through the merge between Sony Mobile Display, Toshiba Mobile Display and Hitachi Displays.

It appears that this company announced a while ago it had started the mass production of 5.0-inch TFT IPS LCD displays supporting 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution and 443ppi.

Software-wise, Sony C660X “Yuga” has been confirmed to be powered by Google's latest Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean operating system, though we won't be sure of this until the Japanese handset maker comes forward with an official announcement.

The C660X “Yuga” is Sony's second high-end Android smartphone that leaks within the last several days, after C650X “Odin” made headlines about a week ago. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
