Sony’s Android flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z has just made its debut in Europe and the Japanese company is already planning a sequel. But that was to be expected given the fierce competition on the smartphone market.The folks over at XperiaBlog have been recently tipped on the upcoming Android smartphone coming from Sony, codenamed C670X.
According to a source close to the matter, Sony Xperia C670X is expected to hit shelves sometime in the middle of the year, but no exact release dates have been confirmed yet so we should look for this one n Q2/Q3 2013.
Hardware-wise, the C670X is better than the Xperia Z in most aspects, but it is also worth mentioning that it will sport a slightly smaller 4.8-inch capacitive touchscreen display though it will support similar full HD (1080p) resolution.
More importantly, Sony Xperia C670X is said to pack a powerful 1.8 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S600 processor, which will be complemented by an Adreno 320 graphics processing unit and 2GB of RAM.
The smartphone will embed 32GB of internal memory, but there’s no word on microSD card slot for memory expansion for the moment.
On the back, the Xperia C670X will boast an impressive 13-megapixel Exmor RS photo snapper with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording.
Luckily, XperiaBlog received a press render of the smartphone, which proves the device also features a secondary front-facing camera. Unfortunately, we can’t confirm the handset in the picture is indeed the Xperia C670X.
Last but not least, Sony Xperia C670X will ship with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box, which means no more waiting for updates.
That’s about it on the next Android flagship smartphone from Sony, but we expect more details will emerge in the following weeks so stay tuned for more info on the matter.
