Sony C6603 Yuga and its 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro chip get benchmarked

Sony C6603 Yuga and its 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro chip get benchmarked
One of the Android smartphones that Sony is believed to be working on is known as the C6603 Yuga. Rumor has it that it is a 5-inch device with monstrous specs, a portion of which might have just been confirmed via the Nenamark web page.

Apparently, someone holding on to a Sony C6603 unit ran the benchmark on it just to see what the handset was capable of. The listing confirms that the smartphone they tested had a screen with 1920 by 1080 pixels of resolution, an Adreno 320 GPU, a 1.5GHz CPU and ran Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Yeah, we know that the benchmark result lists a resolution of 1794 by 1080 pixels, but it is just that the missing rows are occupied by virtual on-screen buttons. And as far as the SoC is concerned, the presence of Adreno 320 graphics indicate that the chip used belongs to the Snapdragon S4 Pro family. It is most likely the quad-core APQ8064 silicon that powers smartphones like the LG Optimus G, the LG Nexus 4, and the Asus Padfone 2. In other words, performance is highly unlikely to be an issue with the Sony C6603 Yuga. And by the way, that moniker is probably just a codename.

The Sony C6603 Yuga is presumed to be scheduled for an early 2013 announcement, alongside its rumored sibling, the Sony C650x Odin. The former will probably look like this.

Thanks for sending this in!

UPDATE: It is rumored that the Sony C6603 Yuga will have a glass back, a 2,400mAh battery, and IP57 certification, meaning that it might be resistant to dust and water damage. Unfortunately, we have no way of confirming these details yet, so take what you just read with a pinch of salt.

If the rumored spec's are true + the IP57 certification I'm definitely diggin' this phone. The only thing that worries me is the Display technology that they will use in the final unit.
