Rumor: Sony prepping 5" Xperia Cyber-shot and Walkman phones for Q3 to lure camera and music buffs
posted by Daniel P. / Mar 29, 2013, 4:09 AM
We've been hearing rumors for a while about this project, allegedly under the One Sony umbrella, but now a tipster of ours fleshed out the strategy with some heartwarming stories about Cyber-shot and Walkman tech about to be placed into flagship Xperia smartphones with Android. Of course, the information below is neither confirmed by Sony, nor verified, save for some rumblings on several company-centric forums, so we can't vouch for its credibility, but here's the full scoop:
Pretty interesting speculation, and it seems that this year will be the one when Android phones will finally get the much needed boost in the camera department. As you might have noticed, apart from reiterating the Xperia A and UL rumor, the tipster is also confirming the Togari phablet we wrote an article about, as slated for release in the summer, so if even a part of this rumor pans out, Sony will be in it to win it in the second half of the year, on the quest to become the third largest smartphone maker globally, after Samsung and Apple.
Thanks for the tip!

I remember 5 years ago I had Sony's k800i Cybershot. Carl Zeiss + Sony + Cyber-shot = Awesome !!!!! Would nice to see Xenon flash too but oh well........ Only if they could improve on their screen technology i.e. non TFT screen then my money is yours Sony

Comparing full HD 1080p display with 720p displays is not fair. Actually Lumia 920 hasn't the worse viewing angle but its the actually 1080p displays which are making it to look worse. I mean if you see all the 720p display then you will know what is actually PUREMOTION HD+.

In my opinion the LCD screens used by HTC are the best screens ever. oled screens produces sharp colors that makes me dizzy. but i guess that's preference.
