CES is less than a week away, so as is customary during the days leading up, we are starting to see products appear well before companies have a chance to announce them. The first two are from Sony, a couple of smartphones that may headline the show, unless LG steps up to answer to a massive New Year’s Eve rumor.
Pictured above, we have the Sony Xperia “Yuga” and “Odin.” (Codenames of course.) Each device is said to sport a 5″ 1080p display, quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB RAM, and 13MP rear camera. Both look very similar, however, one may come packed in a slightly smaller frame, even though it has the same 5″ display.
I’ve never been the biggest fan of Sony’s phone designs, but these aren’t bad. They don’t look all that refreshing as rectangular black slabs, yet the specs and Sony’s openness with Android could make them somewhat more appealing.
We’ll be at CES starting Sunday, so if these phones are there, we’ll be on them.
