2013 is going to be the year of Full HD smart phones with displays capable of pushing 1920×1080 pixels resolution. Sony is already known to be working on its next successor – C650X Odin and C660X Yuga which comes with a 5″ Full HD display.

Now word has it that the upcoming Sony Yuga will be called the Xperia Z. Just like the Xperia Acro S & Xperia V, the upcoming Xperia Z is also IP55/IP57 rated for water/dust resistance.

While the launch date is yet to be seen, Russian tech site Mobile Review has managed to get their hands on one which they have reviewed in detail. The device is found running on Qualcomm’s 1.5GHz quad-core S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB on board storage which is expandable with micro SD. At time of their review, the device is running on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Sony’s very own sleek UI. In terms of imaging it comes with a 13MP camera although the on screen option only shows 12MP.

Design wise, it looks like a Xperia ion with its clean all black front. Instead of physical buttons, the Yuga uses on-screen buttons like the Galaxy Nexus or Nexus 4. Just like the current crop of Xperias, the upcoming device uses flap covers for its ports which we find them pretty annoying and this time they have loads of them.

You can check out the full Mobile-Review of the device here or head after the break for detail shots of the Yuga.

Sony really messed up with their Xperia S at the worst time ever right after the takeover from Sony Ericsson. Still they have the most beautiful design than the cheap looking Samsung.

I wonder why Sony is not popular. I guess guess they have a better looking smartphone than Samsung. My bother's Xperia V looks very beautiful compared to S3. My S3 looks cheap from the back. But I also heard that Sony is bad at their support and updates.
