Is the Sony Xperia X a dual SIM version of the Sony Xperia Z?

0. phoneArena 30 Dec 2012, 03:19 posted on

Sony will be introducing the Sony Xperia Z at CES 2013 in Las Vegas and the device is expected to have the usual top-shelf specs that we have seen manufacturers talk up lately such as a 5 inch screen, 1080p resolution and a 441ppi pixel density; the model is said to have a close relative, the Sony Xperia X that has the same specs, but adds dual SIM card capabilities...

yo alan, that is a wrong picture of Xperia Z (Yuga).

The picture you posted is Xperia GX (Japan version). Which is already out in japan.

and its not a picture of a TX, cause it has the NTT DOCO. logo at the top, yet they both share the same design.

This is the worst piece of journalism in the world. If Android Authority (or lack of authority) and iPhoneArena read XperiaBlog properly, they'd know the only thing mentioned about the 'dual' aspect was that it had a textured back like the Xperia E dual.

This makes me cringe.

Furthermore, at least you realise Yuga is not 6", which is what we have known the whole time, but you people keep misunderstanding - there's a 6"+ phablet...And we all knew Yuga and Odin were like the TX and T...(virtually identical).

Just terrible.

EDIT: If you use google translate with the original source, it says dual Sim, however, this is Google translate, and Xperiablog is known to handle chinese/vietnamese sites well.

I am curious why dual SIM phones haven't caught on (or, just aren't sold) in the U.S. - they would seem to be the perfect solution to marginal coverage for one carrier with good coverage for another carrier in the same location. Or, business and personal accounts.

Could be. Although there is some market for phones without a contract. Other than the original Nextel phones, I haven't seen a dual SIM-capable phone sold in the U.S. For that matter, I doubt one could purchase a dual-SIM phone internationally and use it in the U.S. (incompatible frequencies and FCC certification problems).

Keep calls separate between business and personal accounts? As in you don't want your company to know who you are calling or being called by (recruiters)....
