Possible Sony Yuga shows up in clear pictures
A lot of the talk recently has been about the upcoming Sony Odin smartphone, which is looking like a pretty impressive device, especially if it gets stock Android support from Google like the Xperia S. But, there's also a new device, code-named "Yuga", that's looking better and better as we see clearer pictures of it.
We don't know a lot about the Sony Yuga, which is model C6603, although we have seen blurry cam shots that claim to be the same device. We can't confirm that these leaked images are real, so let's all try to stay calm on this one. The new rumor has it that the Yuga will feature a 1.5GHz quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, a 12MP camera, and a 5" 1080p display. This is slightly different from what we'd heard before which had the Yuga sporting a 6" screen and a 13MP camera.
If these images are to be trusted, the device looks to be a fairly sparse design, just a black rectangle. The only stand-out features of the hardware are a glass rear panel, which is odd for Sony, and what looks to be a pretty large silver power button on the side.
No word yet on a release window.
