The handset might arrive on shelves in early 2013 with a 5-inch full HD screen
Japanese mobile phone maker Sony Mobile is reportedly gearing up for the launch of a series of highly appealing Android-based smartphones in the coming months, and at least one of them is said to sport a large, 5-inch touchscreen display.The handset has been spotted online before as the Sony Xperia C650X Odin, and some more info on it is now available, along with a purported leaked photo of the device, available courtesy of rbmen.
Now we can make an idea of what the device might look like when made official courtesy of said photo, and we can also have a better look at the device’s rumored 5-inch touchscreen display, which is supposedly capable of delivering a full HD (1080p) resolution.
The company’s logo can be seen at the top of the screen, where the front camera is located too, along with the Xperia name at the bottom, yet we still have no clue on the name this device will sport on the market.
As mentioned above, the smartphone is expected to prove a high-end device from Sony, and the info available on its internal circuitry appears to confirm it.
The smartphone is expected to arrive on shelves with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor packed inside, with each core clocked in at 1.5 GHz.
Moreover, there will be 2GB of RAM packed inside the mobile phone, capable of boasting impressive levels of performance, the same as in any of the new Android smartphones that landed on shelves with this amount of memory inside.
Rumor has it that Sony might be readying this smartphone for unveiling at the upcoming CES 2013 show, which should take place in January.
This means that Xperia Odin C650X could be one of the first handsets that Sony will add to its popular Xperia series next year, and that it might release other high-end phones as well. Recent reports on the matter suggested that it might even launch a 6-inch handset in 2013.
