Speculation has surrounded a 5-inch handset named the Xperia Yuga, which is said to be the production name for the Xperia Z. The image above confirms the Sony Xperia Z (on the left) will be an Android handset, with the previously seen oversized power/lock key situated on the side.

The Xperia Z is rumored to feature a 1920 x 1080 resolution, a glass front and rear, a microSD card slot and an HDMI port. It runs on Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and 2 GB RAM, accompanied by a 12-megapixel camera.

As for the Sony Xperia ZL (on the right), it's said to be the Japanese technology company's rumored Odin handset, which sports a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7227A CPU, an Adreno 200 GPU and a resolution of 480 x 320. It runs on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Sony is aiming to ship 50 million Xperia smartphones during 2013, with around 35 million units being sold in 2012.

    Sony owns that corner edge design earlier before iPhone occurred. Those corner designed used to apply on Sony Clie PDA device during 2000 to 2003 era.
