One of the high-end smartphones that Japanese mobile phone maker Sony is expected to bring to the market in the beginning of the next year has leaked online as Sony Yuga, and the first concept device based on its specs is now available for your viewing pleasure.
Coming from designer Kanishka Sanjaya, the Sony Xperia Yuga concept phone looks highly appealing, while also boasting impressive hardware specifications.
The smartphone was designed with a 5-inch FHD IPS+ LED backlit TFT screen with Mobile Bravia Engine 2 and White Magic technology.
The handset’s 1080 x 1920 pixel screen can deliver a 441ppi pixel density and is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 2.
Inside the smartphone, there’s a 1.7 GHz quad-core Krait CPU (APQ8064 Snapdragon S4 pro chipset) with Adreno 320 GPU to deliver great performance capabilities to users.
2GB of RAM complement the processor, along with 32GB of internal memory and a microSD memory card slot with support for up to 64GB of external storage.
On the back, the Sony Xperia Yuga concept sports a 13-megapixel photo snapper with Exmor RS lens, LED + Xenon flash, and HDR video recording capabilities. It is complemented by a 2MP camera for making video calls.
The specs list of this concept phone also includes LTE, HSUPA, EDGE connectivity, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, HDMI via MHL, DLNA, Wi-Fi hotspot, and Wi-Fi Direct. The smartphone is powered by a 3,200 mAh Li-ion battery.
Xperia Yuga runs under Google’s Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system right from the start, and also features xLoud for speakers and a multi-window option to run multiple apps at the same time.
Enthusiasts will certainly jump on this device, should Sony indeed decide to release a model with similar specs in the beginning of the next year. For the time being, however, this is only a concept phone, so don’t get your hopes too high.
