A rumored Sony smartphone operating under the codename of "Yuga" could be the company's first handset to offer a 5-inch, 1080p display.
The hardware appears to match up fairly closely to the photos of the Yuga, I see a unibody enclosure that likely means an internal battery.. Also, after looking at a number of freshly unearthed
While the Yuga maintains some of the design aesthetics of recent Xperia models, it's also unique in its own right. The alleged features include the aforementioned 5-inch, 1080p HD display, along with 2GB RAM, a 12-megapixel camera, and a 1.5GHz quad-core processor.
Assuming Sony is able to deliver this handset in a timely manner, it would be a perfect blend of high-end hardware and a very recent version of Android. Sure, it may not , but Sony's done much worse when it comes to pairing hardware and software.
Given the amount of already-known details, I suspect this is the sort of device Sony would like to bring to Las Vegas and CES in January. I've reached out to Sony and will report more when I hear back.
