Sony Yuga and Odin dimensions leak: 5-inchers more compact than the Droid DNA

Sony Yuga and Odin dimensions leak: 5-inchers more compact than the Droid DNA
By now we've heard almost everything that has to be known about the upcoming phones with 5" Full HD resolution screens from Sony, codenamed Yuga and Odin. Well, it is actually the same device, just that the Yuga will be the Asian version, likely heading for Japan with its waterproof body, and the Odin will be the global edition of the 5-incher.

We've even seen claimed pictures of the devices, but didn't know the precise size of the thingies until today, when an XDA-Devs forum member leaked the numbers.

Dimensions of the Sony C650X "Odin" are expected to be 131.6mm x 69.7mm x 9.8mm thick, and the weight only 5.04oz (147g). The Asia-bound Sony C660X Yuga is said to be taller but thinner at 138.6mm x 71mm x 8.1mm, and weighs even less at 140g, despite its alleged waterproof body. To put the numbers in perspective, the HTC Droid DNA is 5.55 x 2.78 x 0.38" (141 x 70.5 x 9.73 mm), so Sony's 5" phones are shaping up to be even more compact.

The global Odin version is expected to feature an IR blaster, like Sony's Xperia tablets, for serving as your TV, home stereo and so on remote control device as well, which would be pretty svelte.

sure but i Expect/want better processors in 2013. Don't get my wrong S4pro is amazing but exynos quad arm a15 and tegra 4 haven't come out yet... A 1080p display will be standard i guess...

Ya back when they announced the DNA and everyone was talking down on it saying is unnecessary and just a battery drainer cause the human eye can't see the difference blah blah blah And I stayed back then, hate now but in 2013 all the flagship phones will be sporting these displays. And when the haters buy their new phone and it has the 1080p display better believe They will be boasting about it Props to Sony for putting up the competition out there.

If ANY Android runs on Android 4.1 and beyond, you don't really need a Nexus anymore. Project Butter was very important since it fixed the lag that all Android phones had. With that included, you should think about the camera, which Sony excels in (they make cameras for the iPhones) and battery life. The camera on the Nexus 4 is...well, kind of horrible according to today's standards. I'm sure the battery life isn't all too great either.

Well if u r goin to talk sh_t atleast do some research Nexus 4 has a SONY BSi lense probably the sameone tht iphone 5 has considering both hav purple lense issue. And every review tht I hav seen after the launch ranks the battery performence as normal

The poster above me was saying he's chasing Nexus. I'm only telling him he doesn't have to chase it anymore, because 4.1 is a very stable OS already. No need to chase for 4.2. Sony makes cameras for many, but from what I've seen, the iPhone 5 still takes better shots than the Nexus 4. I'm sure on a Sony phone, they'll put the best they have at 13 mp's. Because it's theirs.

I have yet to recreate the purple lens flare and I'm trying. I'm calling BS on it until I can recreate it.

"Sony makes cameras for many, but from what I've seen, the iPhone 5 still takes better shots than the Nexus 4." Sensor not whole camera. So the differences may becomes in other departaments like optics and software. ;)

Well the truth still remains. Go look at the Nexus 4 Review and take a look at the shots taken with it. It's not that impressive. In fact, dare I say my Samsung Galaxy Nexus takes better pictures with its 5mp camera? :X Comparing to the Nokia Lumia 920, and even Galaxy S3, the Nexus 4 could have done a better job with the camera.

Yes, I agree that Nexus 4 camera's quality isn't really well.

"...SONY BSi lense..." BSI stands for Back-illuminated sensor not lense!

Nexus has the unpleasant tendency to outfit itself with current-gen specs instead of next gen. The Nexus One had a 3.7" screen and a 60nm processor right before the age of the 4.3" and 45nm ; the Nexus S had a VGA pentile screen and single-core processor immediately before the qHD dual-core era ; the Galaxy Nexus had an outdated TI OMAP and mediocre camera just before the introduction of 28nm and quad-core chips ; the Nexus 4 has a 720p screen and no LTE. The pure Android experience is great, but it would be even better if Google future-proofed by way of hardware, with absolutely no compromises. On the bright side for LG, the company that makes the lates Nexus has historically done phenominally the following year. HTC did great after the Nexus One, then Samsung took over after the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus.

Well yeah, but again I'd like to see a truly no-holds-barred bleeding edge smartphone from Google, regardless of price. Show us what Android can do on a 1080p SLCD3 screen with 3500mAh battery, 4GB RAM with a quad-core Exynos A15 processor in a carbon-fiber body with a 13MP camera and 128GB built-in with a microSD slot to boot. Keep the Nexus 4 as the low end if you must, Google. Every year it seems like Google is content to merge the latest and greatest software with the tried and truest hardware of the previous generation.

You see the problem is that smartphone with such specs would cost a lot of money and that's mean not so many people will be able to afford it and that's mean that it may be not worth for a company to manufacture such device.

"previous generation" Nexus 4 was second device tht was launched with S4 Pro all others still needs to be released except for DNA. Exynos A15 still need to come for mobile devices so be realistic

"Nexus has the unpleasant tendency to outfit itself with current-gen specs instead of next gen." You can say the same about any smartphone not only Nexus. Talking about smartphones in our days there is incessant evolution, every half of year there is something new in smartphone world. :)

But the Nexus 4 was outclassed in the screen department by the DNA in a matter of days, not months. Of course there's something new every half year, but it would be nice to see Google's pride and joy last the longest.

I wish Google went back to HTC for the nexus devices, only then would we get great specs with build quality and a sexy sexy pure android

DNA outclasses any phone in the screen department, too bad it's not all about the screen though. fact is, Nexus is rocking the same chipset of the DNA with a bigger battery and a pretty nice screen too. now add to that stock android and timely updates (KLP goodness before any one else, we are talking half a year of waiting for the DNA if this update turns out to be a major like ICS) and the choice is certain for me.
