Sony Odin vs Sony Yuga vs HTC Droid DNA vs Galaxy S III size and benchmark comparison
After digging out more sample photos from the upcoming Sony C650X Odin flagship today, we wandered around to see if any tester had posted benchmarks in addition to the ones that already appeared for Sony's quad-core 5-incher.
Needless to say, the GLBenchmark database already houses preliminary tests from a Sony C6603 Yuga. Both variations seem to share the same specs - quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, 2GB of RAM, and a 5" 1920x1080 pixels display with eventually the brightness-boosting WhiteMagic technology of Sony.
The main difference seems to be in dimensions and the rumor that the global Sony Yuga will be waterproof, whereas the market-specific Odin will feature an IR blaster to serve as a remote control, like in Sony Xperia Tablet S. The Odin is said to be in the hands of T-Mobile peeps here in the US, and they are allegedly toying with the idea to carry it.
In addition, someone has gone through the trouble to make a collage based on the Yuga and Odin dimensions that leaked the other day, and our size comparison tool with the Samsung Galaxy S III and the HTC Droid DNA, to exhibit how compact the 5" Sony handsets will eventually be, despite the large display and the alleged Asahi Dragontrail glass chassis.
We are putting the size comparison and the preliminary benchmarks below for your viewing pleasure, and to illustrate that if all rumors about the upcoming Sony Odin/Yuga 5" handsets hold water, they will give even some of the best Androids currently out there a run for their money, both design- and specs-wise.
