Sony hasn’t been sitting quietly while the competition is busy churning out newer models with faster internals. What you are seeing here is the purported upcoming C660X flagship device that carries the codename Yuga. So far there isn’t much details except for its purported quad core spec and a bigger display. A European tech site Android Scheweiz managed to get a quick snap of the device along with details of its specification.
According to the source, the Yuga will be running with a quad-core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB of RAM and mated to a full HD (1920×1080) 5″ display. This puts it in the running against the HTC J butterfly/DLX that boasts a high pixel density of 440ppi (pixels per inch). In the imaging department, the camera is a 12MP shooter as opposed to a 13MP unit that was speculated earlier.
From the leaked photos, Sony is still taking the squarish slab look with a unibody design. The front has a clean all black look with on-screen buttons being used like the Galaxy Nexus. Being a unibody build, the battery is non user replacable but there’s a microSD slot and HDMI port. The surprising bit is the back of the design which is reported to be using glass material similar to the iPhone 4/4S.
The power button located on the right is now placed lower which presumably to make it more reachable in this mammoth 5″ size. In the leaked photos, the power button stands out like a sore thumb with a striking chrome finish. Hopefully this is just a prototype and we reckon the final button design would blend in better.
While the final details are yet to be confirmed, it looks more realistic that the Sony Nexus hoax we saw earlier. The Yuga is expected to be running on Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean as indicated in the screenshot.
