One rumored Sony Android we’ve been hearing about for a while now is the smartphone codenamed Gaga. Back in March, a rumor suggested that Gaga could eventually end up launching as the Xperia UL. Today, we get what could very well be our first look at the handset, upon some leaked pics arriving which claim to show the UL in the flesh.
As you can see up top, that label clearly marks this model as Gaga. Presumably this image comes from some late-stage testing of the phone, as that “SAR” on the same label likely refers to Specific Absorption Rate testing, one of the parameters looked at by regulatory agencies like the FCC. As you can see by the logo on the phone’s rear, it seems to be getting ready for Japanese carrier Au by KDDI.
Rumors suggest that the UL is powered by a Snapdragon 600, has 2GB of RAM, 32GB of flash, and a 2300mAh battery. Supposedly, the phone could have a five-inch 1080p screen. There’s no sign yet of any launch outside Asia, but we’ll keep our ears open for news of the UL spreading.
