Sony C650X Odin could be known as the Xperia X

You know, there's always been something special about the letter X. It often gets attached to exciting, mysterious, awesome things, and this case might be no exception. That's because the long-rumored Sony C650X smartphone, also known by its codename "Odin", might hit the shelves as the Xperia X

Today's speculation comes only days after we talked about the possibility of the Sony C660X "Yuga" being called the Xperia Z. And even though these two rumors are far from confirmed, who knows, they could very well be on the right track. Word on the street has it that the Yuga and the Odin are more or less identical, with one of them being tailored for the U.S., while the other meant to be offered in other markets.

For those who need a refresher, here are some specs to drool on. Both the Sony Xperia X and Xperia Z come with 5-inch 1080p screens (1920 by 1080 pixels) enhanced by the maker's BRAVIA engine. Inside them is said to be ticking a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro system-on-a-chip alongside 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. As expected, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean comes out of the box. 

The Sony Xperia X and Xperia Z are expected to be announced during CES 2013, which is scheduled to begin on January 8. Should Sony choose to unveil its latest and greatest smartphones at a later date, an announcement during MWC in February seems plausible.

Jezz...you sure know me well. So according to you, everyone who doesn't post love messages to Sony is a fan of the fruit eh? This is the 1st time i've been tagged that name... Sorry to disappoint you son but i'm not a fruit fan. PS, do get to know someone if you want to diss him before you embarass yourself.

I really wish that Sony could make it back in the to as big as the Nokia Lumia 920. I really miss this brand since Apple and Samsung eclipsed it.

I just wonder what the camera is like, and even more importantly, the battery capacity. So far I think the perfect package is that OPPO 5 phone.

Sony will have a new compression for the camera, the exmor RS camera with HDR (not just a software thing in this case), waterproof (Yuga), IR-blaster (odin), very slim (Yuga), 2400mAh+ battery (in the Yuga - possibly up to 2800mAh), PS suite, BE2, and it looks amazing physically. Quad S4 but with Sony optimisations (Sony are the best at making the most out of hardware, look at the S and T/Tx/V for examples). Win. SIV sounds dangerous to it? Well, I can't even imagine the 2H flagship. That will just annihilate the competition.
