Sony's 2013 flagships tipped, Q4 might see a quad-core Cortex-A15 beast with a huge battery

A user in the leaky Sony forum for their upcoming machines, is confirming the specs we expect for the Odin/Yuga, but throws a few more devices in the mix, if Google's translation is to be trusted...

6" display, 3GB ram & 3500 mAh battery now this phone will let me say goodbye to my Galaxy note II unless Galaxy note III stand up.

Using ARC S now and really happy with it but i think it is time to upgrade. Xperia T/TX was not the thing i was waiting. Cannot wait for 5"er, badly want it.

I guess you are joking, but just in case. The Tegra 4 (Wayne) is also a quad core A15. And it's coming Q1 2013.

Have you read the article?
"It is listed as a quad-core Cortez-A15 endeavor, but neither Qualcomm, nor NVIDIA with Tegra 4 are in the mix"

So, any other idea?

Maybe they are going to start to develop their own? It would surprise me, but with Sony it´s possible.
OK, I admit I´m out of ideas...

TI OMAP's final stand?

More unlikely even than the previous comments.
OMAP5430 and OMAP5432 are A15 but dual cores, and TI is stepping out of mobile SoCs, so it's not likely they'll create a new quad core one.

3GB RAM? Is it enough for Angry Birds?

All Rovio games running + more is needed to occupy that RAM

More than enough, you will be running high-end PC games, which requires over 1.5 gb ram.

bet samsung is quickly changing its specs for s4 to match these sony's upcoming phones.

I expect the SGS4's specs to match or even better the Sony flag, but in terms of design, no matter how hard Samsung changes it, it won't match Sony's.

Though, Sony design ain't going to help them get No.1 since Samsung fan base is big and more importantly, they know how to market.

MINDBLOWN! First time to hear 3GB of RAM for a phablet. I hope those specs will be same or a little better. Goodluck Sony! I'm a proud owner of your famous Xperia S!

Wow, Sony had really put effort into their phones after Xperia X10. The 2nd place in Europe is well deserved.

This was initially posted of Neogaf, then Esato. Then it must have been translated to another language, and back to english again. Tsk tsk, a bit late?

APQ8064 is not Cortex A-15 so for example exynos 5440 will be more powerful at the same clock. And MSM8960T is a dual core Krait with adreno 320 and it has only 1 MB L2 cache, meanwhile APQ8064 has 2 MB L2 cache. Just wanted to clear the air :)

Looks like Samsung will have a bit of competition next year. Hopefully HTC will follow suit with giving Sammy a hard time.
