The global Odin version is expected to feature an IR blaster, like Sony's tablets, for serving as your TV, home stereo and so on remote control device as well, which would be pretty svelte...

Am I right in thinking the Odin will have a 5" screen but be a (very) tiny bit smaller than an S3 or have I got my measurements wrong?

This beauty might get unveiled in January 2013 and I'm guessing Sony will make sure to release the bloody thing no sooner than May-June.

Ha yeah that June sounds about right. Sony has to be last to release anything.

Shall we say...5 inch 1080x1920p screen with 441 ppi, 1.5 GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon S4 Pro Krait processor with Adreno 320 quad-core graphics with 2GB or ram with a 2500 mAh battery running on Android 4.1?

Daniel, you are aware of the leaked photos of the Odin/Yuga, right? And you still used the render photos?

Anyway, considering that the phones would have glass back and front and a much larger battery, it's amazing how they managed to keep the phone really light. Almost as light as the Droid DNA with its plastic body and 10-minute battery, if those info are true.

Ha ha, I just got your joke, 10- minute battery pfft! If you haven't tried it yourself, stow your cynical responses. I'm guessing that tiny battery was to showcase the frugality of the screen and nothing more.

This Sony phone looks pretty sexy, although I want to know the construction of it, edge to edge screen means that chassis has to have excellent shock absorption. Looks like a great, can't say I have ever seen a Sony Android phone at VZW that looked good enough to own.

That much pixels and LTE, even if they say the processor and the screen are power efficient, you don't need an extensive hands-on to deduce the battery life.

Oops, it's the concept photo and not the render. My bad.

Seeing it's dimension, it would really have bezel less front, because it's dimensions are on par with S3, but Sony had managed to squeeze in 5" screen in the smartphone which is about the size of S3...... +1 to Sony for this; eagerly waiting for the next year's flagship devices........

U still don't get it nexus means always get the updates your other Android phones run mostly on 2.3...... if it wasn't for nexus I'll own a iPhone.... updates are the most important like calling.. when 4.2 come out most of you will have to buy a new phone to get it....do your research....

Anyone notice the particularly skeptical tone of the article? PA are hoping the water resistance part isn't true, it could tempt them away from their beloved iPhone are SGS3/4.

By the way, the dimensions and resistance are correct. I think the YUGA is global, ODIN is specific.

If i use this phone as a master controller for my TV, home theater and such, I'm afraid it will suffer the same fate as the other remotes... get lost in the couch xD

Don't worry... That's the global one... Odin's for some specific markets only... Phonearena's giving wrong info....:)

Even if Yuga's not a global one, Dogo's comin for you... It's a rugged one with same processor & RAM as Yuga but has 4.65" screen with 720p display...:)
