Sony's 5-Inch Yuga Smartphone Shown in Leaked Images

Sony's flagship smartphone for 2013, the 5-inch, quad-core-powered 'Yuga', has been depicted in another batch of leaked images.

Russian site Mobile-Review claims to have received a prototype version of the smartphone, posting a pair of pictures of the 5-inch device.

One of the more physical components displayed by the images in question is the large power/lock key on the side of the Yuga. Either way, the shots looks similar to a previous leak, suggesting the device could indeed be in existence.

Also known as the Sony C6603, the device sports a 5-inch, full HD display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, accompanied with a glass front and rear. While the sealed glass chassis effectively confirms access to the battery is sealed off, it's said to contain a microSD card slot and HDMI port.

Sony's Yuga purportedly runs on Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and 2 GB RAM, as well as a rear 12 megapixel camera.

Sony is also reportedly working on 'Odin', a handset boasting a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7227A CPU and an Adreno 200 GPU. Sony itself expects to sell 50 million Xperia smartphones during 2013.

    Yeah, just today my phone froze, and the power button did absolutely nothing, so I just pulled out the battery. Plus, since you can't upgrade the battery, this device will probably have 2 hour battery life in 2 years.
