Sony is yet to make a huge splash in the high-end Android smartphone scene but rumor has it the Xperia makers are really prepping something special for “early 2013”. The beast that was known until now as the “Yuga” will after all be coming as the Xperia Z according to sources, and will most likely be on display at CES in January.
Besides the new moniker, we also “know” that the Z will be measuring a mere 7.9 mm in thickness while being a great outdoor partner with water and dust protection. As for the 5-inch display, that’s set to boast a full high-def resolution and 443 ppi pixel density while being based on the OptiContrast technology previously used for the manufacturing of several Sony TVs, as well as the Xperia V smartphone and Xperia Tablet S.
But that’s not all, because the Z will be pushing the limits in every department, from the processor, thought to be a state of the art quad-core S4 Pro clocked at 1.5 GHz to the 2 GB of RAM or 12 MP camera. Pretty sick, right?
