So far, rumours about Sony’s upcoming flagship devices for 2013 have pointed to two similar devices, the Sony Odin and the Sony Yuga. Now comes word that there could be an even more impressive device in the works for the second half of 2013.
According to two different reports, Sony is developing a smartphone that will be powered by a quad-core Cortex-A15 SoC. It will also come with a 5-inch 1080p display, 3GB of RAM, 128GB of onboard storage, a 16GB camera and a 3,000mAh battery. It could also be dust-proof and waterproof like the recent Xperia go. At this point, it looks like it will be about the same size as the Yuga but that could still change before launch.
The Chinese-language MyDrivers website adds that the processor in question would be none other than a Samsung Exynos. Could it be rumoured Cortex-A15-based Exynos 5440 SoC?
With such specifications, it definitely looks like Sony is seriously looking to take on Apple and Samsung in the smartphone arena in 2013.
