Report: Sony's 2013 Smartphone Flagship Codenamed 'Odin'

Sony is reportedly preparing to launch its lineup of Android-powered Xperia smartphones in 2013 that will be spearheaded with a flagship device codenamed "Odin".

While details are minimal, model numbers for the device are C6052, C6053 and C6056, with the last number of each model representing a different region. The device will also apparently launch sometime during 2013 and run on Android Jelly Bean 4.1.1.

A mid-range "C160X" that comes equipped with a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7227A CPU, as well as an Adreno 200 GPU is also due to be released with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. Its resolution is just 480 x 320, with the actual screen size unknown. An entry-level "C150X" is also planned, but details are scarce.

AndroidAuthority said the "C" in the smartphone model numbers could suggest that the Cyber-shot branding Sony integrated into previous phones will be making a return.
