It seems that the leaks won’t stop this year, especially this year end. Sony’s upcoming flagship smartphone code name Yuga gets another fresh new rumor of it’s internal specifications. And what you will read, you will most definitely like. Also, this leak falls nicely in tune with the previous leak which said that the Yuga will pack four ARM Cortex A15 cores. Well, enter Samsung’s very own Exynos 5450 quad core chipset.
Sony Xperia Yuga
The Sony Xperia Yuga will be the company’s flagship smartphone for 2013 (at least the first half of the year, depending on the release time frame that is). Please note that we specifically used the term smartphone and didn’t add phablet to it. Sony has other plans for it’s phablet monster (Sony Odin) which might pack a display as large as 6″ coupled with 1080p resolution.
- Samsung Exynos 5450 chipset
- Quad Core ARM Cortex A15 CPU
- ARM Mali-T658 MP4 (quad core) GPU
- 3 GB of RAM
- 1080p display – 441 ppi – 5″ display
- 128 GB ROM
- 16 MP front camera
- 1080p video recording
- Water & Dust resistant body
- IR Blaster
- 3000 mAh rating battery
Well, as we have said before, this device is shaping up to a BEAST that we can’t wait to see in it’s retail form. 3 GB of RAM is a lot lot lot (three lots don’t emphasize enough). This will be the first smartphone to pack 3 GB of RAM. The 128 GB of ROM is also the highest for a smartphone. Finally, enough internal storage such that no body can complain for the lack of a micro SD card slot (me included). Also, knowing Samsung’s plans, the Exynos 5450 chipset might pack four ARM Cortex A15 cores and four ARM A7 cores at the same time (for lower power consumption and low performance demanding tasks). Here’s hoping Sony is sensible enough and only launches this beastphone with the latest Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean OS only (we know Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie isn’t due until Summer, 2013).
