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...

Samsung has had its time in the limelight it's someone else's turn.

Don't count out HTC just yet. The flagship successor to the One series will be just as good, if not better, than the DNA.
5" 1080p S-LCD3 display
1.8+ GHz quad core true A15 Tegra 4 much faster than S4 Pro
2-3 GB RAM
2,500 mAh battery with optimizations that grant well over 10 hours of battery life
It'll be a great day, that day. One hell of a successor to the One X, eh?

What was the release date again? Was it January or 1st quarter 2013?
63. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4184; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
It might be released at MWC like the One X was. That's in late February. It might be released at CES though, that's early January. No exact release date, but Q1 definitely.

It's too bad I got the One X already... I'll have to hold out another year or two before I get a new phone. Are you going to get the Butterfly?
70. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4184; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
Then you can get the successor to the successor of the One X, that's what people usually do anyways. You always get every other successor to your phone, unless there's something that majorly bothers you about your specific device that got fixed in the immediate successor.
People who got the iPhone 4S shouldn't have gotten the 5, but should wait for the 5S.
People who got the Galaxy Nexus shouldn't have gotten the Nexus 4, but should wait for the next Nexus.
Unless you're always wanting the latest and greatest.
Anyways, no, I don't think I'll be getting the Butterfly. I'm kind of tired of waiting for updates, and I'm a bit sick of overlays (I love Sense, but Touchwiz ruined it for everyone). I'm ordering the Nexus 4 as soon as Google releases an update that increases optimization, maybe 4.2.3. This GS2 is getting a bit worn.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking... Unless Google releases a Nexus with HTC or Sony...
72. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4184; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
I would've preferred it if they did originally. HTC is the greatest when it comes to Nexus. The majority of people who don't like HTC doesn't like them for their lacking updates or Sense, and that would be fixed with a Nexus. Would've loved to see a Butterfly Nexus

no doubt that samsung is now the dominant mobile manufacturer in the world, but i think we can see some changes with these monster phones of Sony
wish you the best Sony

Make it with a 4.5" screen & with a Xenon flash then I will like, 5" screen phone are just way way to wide for one handed use & a led flash is no where near as good as a xenon flash (nokia, & old Sony cybershot phones)

My hopes of getting a nice 3.5-4" phone are quickly diminishing.
Unless the Xperia 4 has a 4" screen..?

Sony is not the past, it's the unseen future.

Hopefully they bring it to the states and many carriers.

My request please add a externel storage up to 64 gb.

Sony needs to release unlocked phones for T-Mobile with the 1700GSM band in the U. S. and 42+ HSPA. I would have one right now if I could buy the Xperia T or Across S international version unlocked with a U. S. warranty instead of a warranty less grey market model.
83. gwuhua1984 (Posts: 1237; Member since: 06 Mar 2012)
Don't worry about the 1700 mhz anymore, 1900 mhz already started running on T-Mobile.
84. Tobybear (Posts: 3; Member since: 29 Dec 2012)
Not across the whole U.S., and they just started converting some of the 1900mhz markets to HSPA+.
Why would I not want to be able to use al of my carriers bands anyway?
And its not like Sony cant add the band, they have international versions of phones with 1700, that for some reason they choose to leave off the U.S. versions.
I dnt get why Sony would limit themselves in a major cell phone market like the U.S. to one carrier that treats them like they are subpar afterthoughts for people who cant afford an iPhone or SG3.
