New Sony Yuga, Odin 1080p Android Specifics Leak


We’ve got some opinions of our own about what Sony should be planning for its Android offerings next year, but if we concentrate on those rumors we’ve actually heard, there have been two models at the forefront of what Sony’s been developing: the models codenamed Yuga and Odin. Both have been attached to specs like five-inch 1080p screens, but why would Sony be planning two such very similar handsets? Some new rumors hope to clarify just what Sony’s thinking there, as well as provide us some new details about the phones’ construction.

Supposedly, the Yuga might be the hardware that Japan gets, with features like the water resistance that’s so popular over there. The Odin, on the other hand, would be the version of the phone that’s released to the international market.

According to one tipster, the Yuga will measure 138.6 x 71 x 8.1 millimeters and weigh 140 grams, while the Odin will be 131.6 x 69.7 x 9.8 millimeters and weigh 147 grams. As you can see, there’s a bit of trading-off in both directions there, and neither stands out as particularly larger or smaller; while the Yuga wins in thinness and having a low weight, its profile is slightly larger than Odin’s.

Besides those dimensions, we also hear that Odin should feature an IR emitter for functioning as a remote control, and that T-Mobile may be thinking about carrying the phone upon launch.
