The 5" Sony C660X Yuga to arrive titled as Sony Xperia Z
posted by Daniel P. / Dec 21, 2012, 8:49 AM
If true, it won't be a big surprise given the purported specs of the device that Sony would give it the last letter in its Xperia line of Android handsets. The phone, that got previewed just recently, sports a 5" Full HD display, 12 MP Exmor RS sensor, 2 GB of RAM, a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset with LTE radio, and a full suite of ports, including a microSD and microHDMI ones.
Add to this its waterproof certification for the slim and light body (final dimensions said to be 139 x 71 x 7.9mm), and the eventual Xperia Z will give any Android out there something to be ashamed about. We are gearing up for CES in a few short weeks, where Sony is expected to unveil it, so stay tuned for more about the Z.
Sony Xperia Z OS: Android 5.1 Lollipop, 5.0 Lollipop, 4.4.4, 4.4.2, 4.3, 4.2.2, 4.1.2 View Full specs
- Display 5.0" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 13.1 MP / 2.2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, Quad-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 16 GB + microSDHC
- Battery 2330 mAh(14h 3G talk time)

Hot damn, with specs like these becoming the "regular" among the Flagships I can't wait to see what Samsung releases next year to Blow everything away! Maybe HTC will step in and make another beast mid 2k13

Sony = Everyone is gonna launch Arm A15 SoCs and i'm just sitting here A9-ing. The fact that everyone is launching their artillery at CES means that they are scared of what is about to come from Samsung in terms of smartphones. Samsung is the only smartphone producer that combines staggering hardware with brilliant software, so.. why would I just buy this Sony or any other powerful handset (Droid DNA, Optimus G, ZTE Nubia, Oppo Find 5) if it can't use the muscle in a smart way? Samsung seems to me to have become the only one in the market to understand the need for better software instead of just some hardware on a spec list.

Once youve used a Snapdragon S4 Quad based device as your daily driver you will realize that the processor battle, as far as day-to-day usage goes is over. Its a 100% fluid experience that never stutters and handles everything you throw at it with ease. Sure, new processors may edge the S4 Quad in the future; but it wont matter because the only way to tell the difference wil be wth synthetic benchmarks.

Nice of sony to call this the Z as the laptop that is called Z is also made with premium casing. I think they should pick a couple of names like Neo and call the newer one the neo2 a bit like sammy does with their galaxys
