Recently, there have been many factors pointing to the idea that Sony is planning to officially reveal a pair of brand new 1080p 5 inch smartphones at CES 2013 next week. Now it seems that some official press releases of the Xperia ZL and Xperia Z have hit the net, found directly on Sony’s website.
These phones have been mentioned in the past under the names Odin and Yuga, but this latest information seems to confirm the phone is in fact coming soon. The Xperia Z is a standard Sony phone, however the Xperia ZL is a scaled down version of the Xperia ZL and has a different location for the front facing camera.
Past rumors have suggested the Z will have LTE connectivity, 2GB of RAM and the same quad core Qualcomm processor as the HTC Droid DNA and LG Nexus 4. At this time, it is not clear if the Xperia ZL will sport the same specs. It is also possible that one of these is only for the Japanese market, while the other is an international version.
I don’t know about all of you, but I’m getting stoked for CES 2013!
