Back in December we had a ton of leaks regarding the Sony Yuga aka the Sony Xperia Z, that even got a sort of review at some point, courtesy of the Russian site Mobile Review. Now, as we get closer to CES 2013, where the device will probably get an official launch, we find some official slides, pics and promo videos of the device.
They reveal its innermost secrets, including a “skeleton frame” and its resilience to dust and water. The device comes with an Exmor RS image sensor and can takes images and record video in HDR. The skeleton frame is composed of individual components, says Sony, upon which the rest of the handset is assembled. Also, there’s an OptiContrast panel in the mix, a 13 megapixel Exmor RS camera and the display is Full HD Reality Display one. A lot of shots of the handset covered in large water drops are shown to emphasize its resilience to liquids.
What’s interesting is that although we see a lot of pictures, there’s no trace of video, so we’re probably not allowed to watch it just yet. The Xperia Z features a 1080p display, 2 GB of RAM, a 1.5 GHz quad core Snapdragon processor and Adreno 320 GPU. The 5 inch display on board supports a resolution of 1794 x 1080 and features on screen buttons for Android. Speaking of which, the device runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
