Sony’s upcoming and first phablet, the Sony Yuga or the C6603 is Sony mobile’s largest (literally) smartphone yet. Packing a 5″ 1080p display and a quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro, the Sony Yuga aka C6603 will arrive to take the crown, or put up it’s best fight for it.
Sony Yuga aka C6603
Details about the Sony C6603 have been leaking every few days. First the internal naming, then some leaked photos followed by leaked NenaMark 2 benchmark scores which pretty much confirmed the 1080p display. Let’s have a look at the specifications inside.
Sony C6603 Specifications
- Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset
- 1.5 GHz quad core Krait CPU
- Adreno 320 GPU
- 2 GB of RAM
- 5″ Full HD 1080p (1920×1080) pixels display
- 12 MP rear camera with 1080p video
- 2400 mAh battery
- Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean
As you can see, the phone packs absolutely high end specs, beating even the recently launched HTC Droid DNA which was covered by us earlier today.
Have a look at the gallery to get an idea of the design of Sony’s first phablet.
The design is sleek. We don’t see much of curvy backs or edges. It’s a bar design, a sexy bar that we want. Bezel is thin, but not as thin as we wold expect from a big screen device. The UI clearly shows, Sony’s Timescape that is. The device is running Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean. Perhaps Sony will quickly update it to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean right after launch.
This NenaMark 2 benchmark result pretty much confirms the chipset, Android version, display of the smartphone. Note the resolution being 1794×1080 instead of 1920×1080 because of the onscreen buttons.
We eagerly await this device’s launch. Things are only getting exciting, with 5″ becoming the new norm for flagship smartphones, together with quad core CPUs, 2 GB of RAM and 1080p displays.
