Sony 2013 Android flagship codenamed 'Odin,' to be running on Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean

Sony 2013 Android flagship codenamed 'Odin,' to be running on Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean
Starting from 2013, Sony is changing the way it brands its phones and now evidence has suggested that next year’s Sony flagship will be codenamed Odin and will run on Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean.

First, gone will be the ST/MT/LT branding used to describe Sony’s devices right now. Instead, there will be a five-character alphanumeric model name. For instance, it’s expected that the new Sony flagship, the Odin, will carry the C650X brand name. 

There are three versions mentioned in the User Agent Profile.

So, all models will be based on Jelly Bean which is great news as it guarantees a perfectly smooth experience.

How can they get 5.xx if they don't have the source code ? Typical ignorant people...

Sony just isnt keeping up with trends...4.1.1? 4.2.2 is gonna be out on a month and 5.0 early next year! Even if sony goes with s4 quad processor there'll be exynos 5 and omap5 so even hardware-wise they aint cutting it! I like sony i really do...but they keep disappointing a lot! Most of their handsets this year were based on Snapdragon S3!

Actually, Sony has one of the best track records when it comes to updating phones / tablets, including older devices, quicker than most other manufacturers.

Hail the odin! Never had before but I like Sony's offerings... and also they are prices competitively here. One thing I don't wanna see.... don't name this handset something like b,v,c,x or anything. Keep it odin. ODIN RULES!!

They've released 4 flagship phones for the past 2 years, means they've been releasing flagship every 6 months, if I can remember correctly it is part of their "One SONY" strategy of some sort.

Look at Motorola. They seem to pop out another version of the Razr every few months.

Well no one can keep up with Android, unless you'r a Techy or love phones, or you'r on good salary. Unlike a company making 1 phone every 2 years, with the same design and nothing new. Even myself would love to keep up with tech, but can't.....

yeah whatever sir statetheobvious-a-lot. what i want is jelly bean update for xperia p and other phones. 2013 phones will obviously have to be jellybean if sony wants to compete in the market. if you ask me they should skip ics for phones that donot have it yet and give them jellybean.

Yet another flagship from Sony which is likely going to pack a sexy design, awesome TimeScape UI, average hardware specs compared to rivals' flagships and a dumb name like T/TX/TL/GX. Hah!

Dude have you seen Xperia TL specs? I think sony has proved that their phones have specs way above average. Still I think there should be a method to the way they name their phones. Maybe there is and we just dont know yet(I hope).

I think the naming based from their naming of their BRAVIA's, VAIO's, and Cybershot digicams. All those are named with letters.
