Sony C6603 Yuga 1080p flagship leaked in pictures

Sony C6603 Yuga 1080p flagship leaked in picturesHave we written about the Yuga before? No, we have not. Interestingly, Martin thought he’d already reported this very story, but we’ll be damned if we can find it.

Anyway! Sony’s rumoured 5in 1080p flagship, the C6603 Yuga, has been leaked in a series of pictures. It’s shaping up rather nicely, I reckon.

The Sony C6603 Yuga pics – seven in total – originally appeared over on Swiss site Andorid Schweiz.

What can we garner from said Sony C6603 Yuga pics? Well, it rocks a unibody design, which means a non-replaceable battery, however we’re told to expect a microSD slot.

There’s also an interesting rounded metallic power button on the side of the Sony C6603 Yuga. Oh, and it’ll reportedly be the first Xperia smartphone with a glass rear.

Rumoured Sony C6603 Yuga specs include a quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 5in 1080p display, 12MP rear camera, 2GB of RAM, and Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean).

The Sony C6603 Yuga's display has a slightly odd resolution of 1794 x 1080, thanks to on-screen buttons.

There’s no word on when the Sony C6603 Yuga might launch, but CES is less than two months away now. Just saying. On the other hand, Sony might want to cash in on the Christmas buying frenzy, though it'll need to move quick if that's the case.

Well it does sound like the odin by another name as seen in related news but no nothing about it under either name this week, did wonder why not.

Unibody is no excuse for non replaceable battery - see Legend, Wave 3 etc etc.... Lazy, greedy b*ggers.

ODIN does have another, existing, use in the mobile industry. Samsung's factory firmware flashing program for Android is called ODIN, so it could have been somewhat risky for Sony to keep the name (I have no idea if Samsung have any kind of legal rights over the name, I assume they would do though).

You'd have thought they could have noticed that before using it at all.

Have you paid any attention to Sony's mobile sector? They're pretty damn useless...

TBH, I don't understand how they survive. Since the 1st Xperia (winmo) and the Satio LOL
Their high point was the first Xperia Mini - for curiosity factor :p

The Xperia T feels a nice phone, and still like the design on the Arc/Arc S. But they seem to delight in putting last years tech at last years launch prices. Still this behemoth is at least on the tech front line, although judging by that pic it's no looker.

I bet we won't see it until Q2 2013 though, by which time HTC (if they're not broke by then) and Samsung will have launched more up to date devices, with Sony repeating their annual "full price for last year's hardware" thing.

Tbh it's not entirely relevant to me as this and likely the next htc and samsung ones will be too big anyway.

In your opinion, when does a phone become too big? Also, what phone have you got as your main device at the moment?

I'm not too sure about that empirically, screen size not ideal measure of physical size as the n4 is showing, but a 5" screen which they seem likely to sport for 1080p screens necessitates something s3 size or larger. S3 and One X for me are too large, S2 is on the border even, Razr i should be in minds of anyone making larger phones I think.

Having studied some specs on phones I've played with, I think between 6cm and 6.4cm. height not so much of an issue. Though I do think the guy in the iphone 5 advert has a freaky thumb as don't think I could access the entire screen like that.
Current one has just a 3.5 inch screen and it doesn't seem enough any more having played with g300 a fair bit, just seems so small coming back to it. Imagine lots will find that with phones of all sizes as android adopts similar os for tablets and phones again.
So I'd like largest screen they can cram into a not huge framework. Though am thinking small dumb phone for general duties and texting and a larger device for the internet and app stuff.
