Sony Yuga tipped with a glass chassis again, Sony to use Samsung Exynos processor for a 2013 flagship
0. phoneArena 13 Dec 2012, 05:15 posted on
Given that Samsung's contract to make Apple's chips expires next year, the Koreans might very well be looking for other customers in the mobile realm, and Sony just took second place after Samsung itself as an Android maker, so it might be getting a pretty sweet deal on those Exynos SoCs, if the rumor turns out credible...

Dragontail is apparently stronger than Gorilla Glass so who knows?

May I know why you dislike oled??
45. romeo1 (Posts: 513; Member since: 06 Jan 2012)
i guess he does not like it because of the oversaturated colors.
but maybe sony can make change that?
and also the blue leds weren't able to get allot of hours of usage and that all the leds are loosing their full collors really fast.
hopefully the oled technology improved cause im not really looking into the technology so i wouldn't know how long the leds can be used now.
i'm not a fan of oled either cause the colors are looking really good in the menu's of the sammys cause it's really flashy but for watching movies it isn't good with its oversaturated colors and grey's can look greenish

I'll reserve judgement for later in regards with that OLED Display.

Now that's what is called awesome. 3GB RAM, 128GB ROM, Exynos 5, 3000mAh battery. But I hardly believe sony will OLED Screen. I think they will use S-LCD3 Display. That's good for them.

wont have 128gb flash. You cant even buy a 128gb micro sd cards yet and when you can they will be 300+ dollars fail this is so fake

ROM = Read Only Memory?
16. cyborg009 (Posts: 95; Member since: 17 Sep 2011)
ROM usually means internal memory of the phone!!!
and 128 GB doesn't sound so fake considering it's being planned for Q4 2013.
29. tyger11 (Posts: 94; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)
ROM couldn't be used as internal storage, but I'm sure they're talking about internal storage. Somebody needs to learn what ROM really is. Internal storage is not ROM. MicroSD is not ROM.
33. aokde (Posts: 186; Member since: 09 Jul 2012)
when i first came to the android world, i was so confused! everybody were referring to internal storage as ROM, which sounded weird to me, because ROM normally is read-only memory....
anyway i got used to it, but still i can't figure out why they call it ROM instead of IS (internal storage or something)
46. cyborg009 (Posts: 95; Member since: 17 Sep 2011)
Certainly ROM is not same as internal memory.. what i was going for is whenever in mobile segment you see rom which is listed as 32, 64 GB.. usually by that they mean internal memory of the phone :)
15. cyborg009 (Posts: 95; Member since: 17 Sep 2011)
Well i was wondering what will be my next phone after xperia S... search complete :)

Well PhoneArena, lifting rumors from forums - Not Cool. I am the guy who posted all the rumors you have mentioned here and let me tell you, all the rumors are FAKE.
Sorry guys, but didn't want PhoneArena to keep lifting forum posts like this.
And whoever tipped PhoneArena, If you really want to keep getting Sony rumors you better stop tipping PA and other popular sites. Otherwise you can kiss rumors good bye forever.

Exynos 5450 quad core. Correction
Add in the GPU too.
ARM Mali-T658 MP4 (quad core) GPU

good spec. but i doubt it.
i chose samsung , spec is one reason, but main reason i can easy root and unroot my device to original stock image, without lose my warranty.
if rummored sony using exynos , maybe true, almost every manufacture use snapdragon chip, and not much use tegra or exynoss
20. lzsbleach (Posts: 155; Member since: 20 May 2012)
Theres something about a tegra and exynoss chip in a phone. They just seem to work faster and smoother than the S4 pro.
24. darac (Posts: 2156; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
Why how about that.. I was right again!!
25. jrandolf (Posts: 22; Member since: 29 Aug 2012)
o common . this beast will be available in Q4 of 2013 ? that's too long for me to wait . :((

Is it true that Sony will be releasing a Flagship for every quarter?
30. noim1 (Posts: 297; Member since: 15 May 2012)
well if thats so ..then that will b a bummper..they dont know how to treat a Flagship with respect..a Flagshipt should stay at TOP no matter what..well at least for 7-8 months...
34. aokde (Posts: 186; Member since: 09 Jul 2012)
don't think so, their strategy, which is releasing 2 flagships a year, one each 6 months, is working pretty well for them (and for the consumers). more than 2 flagships a year will be ridiculous.

Bring it to more carriers than just att. I'd love this on Verizon
36. emadshiny (Posts: 1142; Member since: 05 Dec 2012)
woooooow, if these specs be true we must say, GOOD BYE SAMSUNG ;D
37. InspectorGadget80 (Posts: 6963; Member since: 26 Mar 2011)

actually Im loving the White screen display already, even the TFT type screen, thanks to software tweak "Mobile Bravia" it produce greatness that compete with AMOLED.
the screen suck when camera hit it but in reality its super beautiful than AMOLED
