6.44" Sony panel pops up, makes us hopeful for MWC
Remember those speculations we might be seeing a Sony C6603 Yuga handset with a 6" display later in the year? Well, a Sony-branded glass panel with very narrow bezel has appeared from the confines of Chinese manufacturing, and it sports a 6.44" diagonal, which fits the description.

What exactly has Sony been imagining for such a handset remains to be seen, if the rumor holds water, and with the MWC expo in a month and change, that might be the place to see it announced, too.

Samsung justified the existence of a handset like the 5.5" Galaxy Note II with the S Pen stylus and the accompanying apps for taking advantage of handwriting on the huge screen, and what would Sony bring to the table with a 6-incher is anyone's guess at this point, but the company has proven its innovation potential numerous times, so we keep our hopes high for a big-screen Sony handset.

More than 5.5 seems to be an awkward device to be called a phone or phablet but I still want to see this device.

Totally agree, I get pushing boundaries, but 6 inch is way too large, 5.5 inch Note 2 is already too big! But the thinner form factor compared to Original Note made up for it. Why not just keep it at 5.5? Might as well get a Nexus 7

6.44" -- finally a mobile to show people 5" is not enough to satify.. Even a inch makes difference ;))

This is perfect I can replace my great one year old WALKMAN X. Cause it's still stuck on GINGER BREAD even though it's a GREAT MUSIC PLAYER. can't wait for WMC this will be a promising year

6.44" display?! Pushing into tablet territory. At that point, you might as well just get you're a 7" tablet and call it a day.
