Sony Xperia Z companion to launch in summer? (salty)

Sony Xperia Z companion to launch in summer? (salty)The Sony Xperia Z has only just touched down, but we’re already hearing word of, well, not a successor exactly, more of a little brother.

The Sony C670X, as we’re calling it for now, sounds very much like the Sony Xperia Z - ‘cept a tad smaller.

Purported Sony C670X specs include a 4.8in 1080p display (the Sony Xperia Z being 5in 1080p), quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.8GHz, and Adreno 320 GPU.

There’s also 2GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage, a 13MP rear camera, and Jelly Bean (Android 4.2).

A Sony C670X render sent to Xperia blog appears to confirm a front-facing camera, notification light, and sensors for proximity and light.

Finally, we're told to expect the Sony C670X to launch "in summer". No word on price or specific destinations just yet.

However, before you get too excited; here’s where things start to get quite salty. A reader points out that the Sony C670X render appears in the set-up guide for the Sony Xperia Z. Say what?

So we’re looking at a) a generic Sony placeholder image, b) an accidental leak, or c) a load of nonsense. Get voting below, peeps.

I love how much stick HTC gets for releasing new flagships every 6 months, but Sony seems to be just as bad .

Can't see how it would be a new flagship tbh. More of a just lower phone a One S to the Z's One X in terms of htc last year.

Think we've oft mentioned how many sony phones there have been, including a complete list of them, which was huge.
They've needed to accelerate their top end releases though as they have been behind and are playing catch up really. Seems to be working better for them than htc given one seems to be increasing sales slightly and the other losing them. Though the One v Z could see a resurgence from htc.

I guess you are right, will have to wait and see.
