Sony Xperia Z Successor Possibly Outed

The successor for Sony's high-end Xperia Z smartphone, due for a worldwide launch later this month, has purportedly been outed.

Details acquired by Xperia Blog has shed light on a handset codenamed Sony C670X, with the ID of the Xperia Z being C660X. The anonymous tipster claimed that the C670X will be the next flagship device for Sony and the successor to the Xperia Z.

It reportedly features a full HD 4.8-inch display and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 (APQ8064T) chipset with a 1.8 GHz quad-core processor, as well as 2 GB of RAM and an Adreno 320 GPU. Other features include 32 GB of internal storage and a 13-megapixel Exmor RS camera. Its OS is rumored to be Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

The Sony C670X smartphone is apparently scheduled for a launch during the middle of 2013. For more on the Xperia Z itself, visit our CES 2013 hands-on impressions.

    Looks like a decent phone. Maybe Sony will wait a few more months before releasing it.

    So their next flagshit is going to have 300 MHz more, to compete with HTC's One 1.7 GHz? For real?
  • I have just purchased the Sony Xperia Z and it gives me all the performance I need. The screen is unbelievable and better than the iPhone 5 in my opinion. Keeping up with technologies is always going to be fast paced however if you are still wanting one i got mine form here on T Mobile, great deal

    Some companies release their next generation after about a year. Sony apparently does it every few months.
