Sony Xperia C670X coming this summer with a 4.8-inch Full HD screen, Snapdragon 600?
We have heard time and time again about the upcoming Sony Xperia C670X, rumored to launch this summer, and latest we are hearing on the grapevine is that it will be a truly impressive 4.8-inch 1080p device featuring a Snapdragon 600 chip. That is the same chip powering the HTC One and expected to be in some versions of the Samsung Galaxy S IV.

Judging from the similar model number (the Xperia Z is C660X), the upcoming Xperia C670X might end up looking similar save for the slightly smaller display. On the inside, it’s noticeably more muscular, though. The quad-core processor clock is bumped up to 1.8GHz, and it features Adreno 320 graphics. The C670X is also said to come with 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage and a 13MP Exmor RS camera.

Now interestingly enough, the Xperia Blog was also sent a curious little render. It could be the C670X, or it could be just a placeholder image. The latter is more likely as that is actually the same image found in the Xperia Z guide.

Finally, expectations are to see the Sony Xperia C670X in the middle of 2013 with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

Now that's what I call flagship specs!

It's more like an uper-midranger, and btw if you think it's their flagship for H2, it is more likely to be C6802

Upper-mid range? Are you kidding? There are flagship phones that have yet to be released that will have very similar specs. (HTC One & Galaxy S4) Hell, the 600 hasn't even released in a device yet. If you think this device is any less than flagship, your standards are way too high.

Dude FYI, Gaga is rumored to have quad-Intel (22nm)/Tegra 4/S800

So this makes Gaga the flagship

but i can't wait anymore.
i'll get my Z in less than a week and if i found this one a real game changer, i'll turn to this one.

My advice would be to just get the Z, believe me the H2 Sony flagship is never a 'game-changer' more of an incremental slight upgrade on the H1 flagship, theres no point waiting cause when the H2 flagship launches there'll be talk of the H1 2014 flagship.. then you'll be forever waiting..

Don't worry when they release this phone, xperia z price will go down. Then you can get the z (as if you can differentiate s4pro from 600, they have the same gpu) Assuming of course that you buy your phones unlocked.

If Sony doesn't release their phones with multiple carrier support in the U.S., this will be the latest sales fail for them. Time to step up your execution game, Sony.

i really hate it when companies release 2 or more flagship caliber phones with a short time diff. of release...i know it's all good but some of the phones even if it is a high end one was left out to updates...yeah, they update it but it takes longer than the others to be updated...

Too much fire will burn Sony. It needs to control the amount of flagships/upper mid rangers it produces...

12. lovefist (unregistered)


Oh men more battery please and ips/igzo display. Until then I'll be skipping all your flagships. And choose between htc one or gs4. If the latter uses plastic, gonna get htc.

agree with that. won't buy a new phone until sony gets it right to the specs i prefer. my old phone is still good until sony releases something significantly better.

it's okay to have the same battery if they want to keep the slim profile but they should device something like a battery case that easily connects to the phone to extend battery life.

Very dumb looking phone.. All the Sony models are sort of DARK. That's because of there theme and color of choice. UI doesn't seem to be colorful and bright. No offense.

because elegance fits the black color. like their monolithic designed BRAVIA TVs.
dark theme in ICS but their apps like messaging, phone, conteacts, etc are now skinned white. they have also included a white theme

19. pwnarena (Posts: 720; Member since: 15 Feb 2013)


it's not the right flagship device anyway. this coming from a sony fan.

it should be immediately replaced by a new flagship with the right specs. it would be embarrassing to be successful with a device like that.

im a loyal xperia user from my SE K500 to my SE Acro S
but releasing to many New High End phones?
Makes me think that Sony is over doing it.. Just my Opinion though

Planning to buy Xperia Z Next week but realizing there are so many cool Xperia phones announcing the near future makes me think twice bout buying Xperia Z...
Now i don't know when to buy Xperia Z or to get Another Xperia phone in the future. Cuz ull never know Xperia Z price will go down because of Xperia's new upcoming phones

Sony honestly believes in "If you cannot convince them then confuse them" into buying your products :D

if it goes like this, we'll see Sony among the top 3 sellers of 2013.
great improvement in just 2 years of independence.
this is what a real pioneer does.

If it looks as nice as the Z in a more compact size, I will buy it provided they fix the viewing angles and lack of contrast.

Actually this is same as last year, its either Acro S or Xperia S
this year Xperia Z or This thing!!
its a wide range of phone, so people would get a chance to choose
Xperia Z will stands on its own due to water & dust resistant and its famous ads in youtube
