Launch Name Rumored For Sony Yuga 1080p Android


It sounds like everyone and their brother has a 1080p Android smartphone in the works, at least if all the leaks and rumors we’ve heard have anything to say about it. For Sony, we’ve been talking about handsets going by the codenames Odin and Yuga. The latter, in particular, has been popping-up a lot lately, and just the other day we got a great look at it thanks to an early pre-release review. Now some details are starting to arrive on how Yuga could make its retail debut, and suggest the phone may launch as the Xperia Z.

Like so many of these other fabled 1080p Androids, the Xperia Z should pack a five-inch display. According to the source providing the phone’s name, the screen will employ Sony OptiContrast technology, as also used on few other recent Sony phones and tablets, for a bolder picture.

The Xperia Z will apparently arrive with a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, 2GB of RAM, a 12-megapixel main camera, and running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. We also hear the handset will be just a hair under eight millimeters thick. For now, there’s no word on a release date, but things seem pretty much ready to go.
