Almost every smartphone maker is coming out with a 5-inch smartphone tablet hybrid device following Galaxy Note success. Now Sony Mobile is also joining the bandwagon with the new handset codenamed Yuga C660X. Chinese website Android Schweiz published images of the upcoming Sony Yuga C660X smartphone with 5-inch touchscreen display and slim unibody form factor.
Currently codenamed as Yuga, this hybrid device will house a quad-core mobile processor clocked at 1.5 GHz. Sony Mobile did promise to move to quad-core mobile processors for its Android devices by 2013. This device will feature a 1080p HD resolution supporting display because now sub 5-inch devices are already flaunting HD displays.
The Sony Yuga will run Android 4.x Jelly Bean software update and will be powered by 2 GB RAM. At the rear, Sony will pack a 12 megapixel camera with great imaging capabilities. The back panel of this smartphone will be made of glass and it has a shining metallic power/sleep button on the right side.
The Sony Yuga seems to have capacitive buttons which is surprising since most of the latest Android 4.x Jelly Bean devices are dropping off even the capacitive buttons. This smartphone might get some of the Xperia NXT styling and brand name.
As of now, there are no confirmed dates for the arrival of this Sony Yuga 5-inch full HD smartphone. However, we believe that the company might show it off at Consumer Electronics Show in January 2013 or at Mobile World Congress in February 2013.
