5-incher is not vaporware or wishful thinking, after all, as it just passed the FCC under the internal coding of S0-02E, destined for Japan's DoCoMo, which maintains a US subsidiary this side of the pond.

, also with 5" 1080x1920 display, but a smaller 2,020 mAh unit.
The Sony Yuga is expected to sport a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, 2GB of RAM, and a 5" Full HD display with eventually the brightness-boosting WhiteMagic technology of Sony. It is also rumored to be waterproof, as any self-respecting Japanese high-end should.
