Sony C3 leaks out: could this be Sony's first MediaTek-based phone?
White-box manufacturers in China are flooding the market with MediaTek-based phones, but they often lack quality finish, and that’s an added value Sony could bring.
It’s all up in the air at this point, but Sony is said to be looking into launching the mysterious Sony C3 with either the quad-core MT6589 processor or the updated 1.5Ghz MT6589T chip.

The quad-core MT processor can handle 720p resolution well. If the screen size hits the sweet spot in between 4 to 4.6 inch, it'll be awesome! Other than that...the design looks petty neat.

i think the image is fake and the rumours said it will have 5 inch qHD, 1GB RAM, and touch pen.

These are fake. Check out the phone icon, it is in reverse. Icons & layout seems like HTC copy. Sony designs are naturally flat. FAKE

Make it with a 4'' or 4.3'' screen with a good resolution and an 8 mp camera and it will be mine.

Fake, the statusbar is from 2011 Xperias, the icons from HTC and the back is completely XZ. Also, the sides seems to have the ZL notification light.
