Sony Yuga leaks with 5-inch 1080p screen and Android 4.1

An as yet unannounced Sony Yuga smartphone has leaked online with images and specs of the mooted Android 4.1 Jelly Bean handset suggesting the device will launch with a 5-inch 1920 x 1080p display.

According to a selection of pictures posted on Swiss blog AndroidSchweiz, the unconfirmed device will land sporting the title of the Sony C6603, or the Sony Yuga. Claimed benchmarks have reportedly shown that the Sony Yuga will be bestowed with a 5-inch, 1080p Full HD display, Google’s Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean OS and a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, most likely a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4. On top of this, the seemingly high-end handset is said to sport 2GB of RAM and a 12-megapixel camera on the rear.

What’s more, the Sony Yuga is said to have a unibody enclosure, meaning that there is no access to the battery. But there is a microSD slot and a micro HDMI output.

Assuming the Sony Yuga is a real in-development smartphone and not an elaborate fake, we wouldn’t expect it to be revealed until early 2013 – perhaps at the Las Vegas CES conference in January or the Barcelona based Mobile World Congress the following month.

The Sony Yuga would slot into the range of Android phones at an interesting point, slightly larger and more hi-res than the likes of the Google Nexus 4 and HTC One X, but more portable (and more like a standard smartphone) than the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

What do you think of the leaked Sony Yuga images and specs? Are you convinced or do you think Sony is coming too late in the game to tempt you away from the Nexus 4, Samsung Galaxy S3 or HTC One X?

I really am loving Sony phones atm. The NFC tags are really useful. I dont know what I would do without FIX (Facebook Inside Xperia) and the new playstation store with hdmi input and ps3 gamer pad sync is really going to be fun!

If its not a fake it is certainly intriguing. Very powerful, very high res screen, project butter AND an all impotant SD slot. a must for those inevitable 1080p movies on the go. Sony better hurry up and annoince it soon along with date and price as the Nexus 4 is almost here...

Finally, a Sony phone that isn't playing catch up. I'm interested, it will be bang up to date, loads of memory (apparently 128 GB on board - if not there is a MicroSD card slot), a better camera than the "James Bond phone", a 5" 1080p screen and intriguingly, the ability to use it as an external modem, plugging straight into your computer's/router's standard network cable. Should be more premium than usual for sony as they attempt to take on Samsung and the mighty iPhone
