Sony Might Have a 1080p Five-Incher of a Phone on the Way

By Gary Cutlack on at

Some slightly gloomy shots of a phone supposedly known as the Sony Yuga have appeared online, revealing a possible future Sony Smartphone with a huge 5" display. And it's another member of the emerging 1080p phone club, too.

According to photos and specs published by Android-Schweiz, the Sony Yuga, also known in more formal circles as the Sony C6603, currently runs Android 4.1 as its OS, with the large display outputting at 1920 x 1080 resolution. The Yuga appears rather similar in style to this year's excellent Xperia T, offering the same sort of minimalist, angular black case as the rest of Sony's current Android line up.

Inside, the Yuga ought to be a worthy challenger to the best of the Android contenders, with the source claiming it features 2GB of RAM and a 1.5GHz quad-core chipset, presumably the same Qualcomm S4 Pro that's soon to launch inside LG's new Nexus 4. [Android-Schweiz via Techradar]
