Sony C650X Odin phablet caught on camera

The Sony C650X Odin is supposedly the Japanese manufacturer's phablet to compete with the Samsung GALAXY Note II, the LG Intuition and the HTC DLX; a picture allegedly of the device shows an edge-to-edge design for the model...

i am not much into phablets, but a 5 inch edge to edge screen is very tempting. Sony nailed the design, i never really liked the design of their Xperia line but this..

Same here. I don't like the idea of having to use 2 hands for a phone but 5 inch with no bezel... just may work.

I dont think Sony like thin bezel. Look at their smartphones and TVs, always thick bezels

Actually, this is from the very first of Xperias, Xperia 2 to be exact. My most, top most favorite mobile design to the date.

Gosh..have you all lost your minds?!?
This is not a darn phablet.
I can't wait when official announcement reveals that this thing is smaller than the Galaxy S3.. and I will dare you to still call it a phablet, PA!!

ok it looks like another render but really cant tell. in the article it says 5 inch screen but wasn't this supposed to be a 6-inch phone?
Lets hope sony can pull off a good phablet here but I seriously doubt it'll be able to compete with the Note 2 in software optimization. Its the little features in the Note 2 that make it the big dog to beat!
Hardware-wise the Sony Odin seems awesome on paper but lets wait and watch

The leaked Yuga was the 6 inch, the Odin is 5 inch. Says it in the last line of the article.

sorry to ask more but will the designs on concept being used as actual phone??? any chance?? btw your design is very beautiful... would be glad if i could have the phone with your design..

no. it's very seldom OEMs make connections with the designs. they're all stand alone.
well, maybe they can steal the designs and claim it as their own. i don't know really.

if it's a phablet, why does it looks so small? Even if it has an edge-to-edge display. Look at it at that man's hand.
15. adjou (Posts: 102; Member since: 06 Jul 2010)
Either this is fake, or that man got massive massive hands...

5 inch has never been that small!! Or that man like you said, has a palm span of about 7 inches!! :D

I was thinking that too...
But, what if THIS is the real Xperia Nexus?
crossing my fingers!
26. darac (Posts: 2156; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
Because the author is dumb, that's why.
This is a phone with minimum bezel and 5 inch screen, period

11. buggerrer (Posts: 290; Member since: 21 Sep 2011)
tall display .. just as stupid as the iPhone 5 screen!
14. adjou (Posts: 102; Member since: 06 Jul 2010)
-_-', So phones can't have the same screen size now... Or they will be deemed as copycats...
23. FireDragon (Posts: 107; Member since: 13 Nov 2009)
! Go look up for Xperia 2 from Sony Ericsson first.
