Sony Odin specs might have been revealed already
0. phoneArena 11 Oct 2012, 02:57 posted on
Here is a wild rumor to start your day with: we believe we know what the hardware specs of the Sony Odin might be. You know, that Sony Odin (just a code name, by the way), which is rumored to be the company's flagship Android smartphone for 2013. The details were posted online on a forum thread dedicated to Xperia-related rumors. However, before you dismiss this bit of news and call it bogus, allow us to note that the forum member who revealed the specs made a post referring to the Odin code name back in June. Do we have your attention already?...

Things are shaping up like a large-scale introduction of multiple Nexus devices that could have 5-inch FullHD displays. Last year, Google Nexus project introduced the HD display. And now it's time for another "innovation".

Next year 2013,the innovation is "no bezel"phone.Motorola RAZRi has already given us the taste.So enjoy the whole screen without borders and bigger size displays with full HD resolution.

What is happening to me:
Nokia Era: Oh wow, his phone has a 320x240 display! *jealous* Mine has a $hitty 128x128 CSTN panel :/
Nokia's Decline: Oh wow! look at that, VGA resolution!! *jealous* I only have a 240p :/
SGSII : What a stunning WVGA display *__* I wanna throw my phone away :(
SGSIII/One X: Screen to die for! Die die my phone >:[
1080p Era: Dunno if I'll call 720p a $hitty display or not.. I wonder.
Display Evolution man!

I'm excited for the supposed 6 inch device. I seem to always want to go bigger with my phones, and then you can't go back to those little 4 inch screens.

Japanese are finally produce a lot of big screen phone this years... but still it's hard for the feature phones users (which contains almost 80% in japan) to accept the giant phone... Oh well, time will tell :)

So this shift towars larger screen phones ultimately has been forced by Samsung. So the race for larger screen phones will still get bigger by day/year. Are we looking at 6 inch iPhone (with width unchanged) next year?

Well pork my daughter and kick my dog, I guess phablets really have taken off. This is the last thing I saw happening whether the Note was a success or not.
Makes you kinda feel bad for Dell, they didn't know how ahead of the curve they were, if only they'd hung in there.

Great, but I'm afraid that by the time it gets out, Samsung will already take the spotlight with the S4

Phones are getting bigger and tablets are getting smaller. Technology is seeking equilibrium. There's really no need to have a tablet and a smartphone when one device can do the job of both. If I were a Samsung fan more than an Android fan, the Note II would be my next device. But because I believe Android provides a greater innovative, technological thrust forward than Samsung or any single OEM and because Android performs at its best on the latest and greatest hardware, it looks like I'll be choosing the LG Optimus G this year.

iPhoneArena, you are just getting worse as worse.
If you learnt how to read the forums instead of making up things, you'd know there are two flagships next year, and the ODIN is the first half one. It won't have a 1080p display.
The second half will.
The second half phone will have an MSM8974.

seems like u didn't read esato forums with open eyes...
both the devices (5 inch screen and the other with 6 inch screen) will come with 1080p resolution.
What phonearena has reported is completely correct!!!

The 2H flagship will establish Sony as the best phonemaker. Hopefully the sales will reflect that.
