Sony’s next flagship, the C660X Xperia Yuga, is bound to get a more market-friendly name before launch and rumor has it that it will be Xperia Z. The phone will also have IP certification for dust and water resistance and a low-reflectivity screen.
The Sony Xperia Z is set to receive IP57 certification for dust and water resistance, similar to the upcoming Xperia V or the HTC J Butterfly. Despite this however, the smartphone will have a pretty compact slim body measuring 139 x 71 x 7.9mm. There’s no info on the weight yet, though.
One of the key features of the Sony Xperia Z will be the 5″ 1080p screen. It will reportedly use Sony’s OptiContrast technology (Xperia V and Xperia Tablet S use the same tech). Sony mostly uses it on TV’s to reduce glare.
The official announcement of the Sony C660X Xperia Z won’t happen this year but it may come as early as the second week of 2013 at CES.
We’ve been seeing a steady stream of leaks about the next crop of Sony Xperia Androids but this one is about a new model – the C3602 (since the last digit indicates the region, let’s just call it the C360X).
We’ve already seen the low-end C1 series (Xperia E and E Dual) and the high-end C6 series (Odin and Yuga with their 5″ 1080p screens), so this C360X should be our first look at the mid-range offerings.
The model number appeared in NenaMark 2 results database, which gives us info on the Android version – v4.0.4 as tested – and the GPU and the screen.
The Xperia C360X has a 720p screen (not bad for a mid-ranger) and on-screen buttons (the reported resolution is 1196×720, the missing 84px are for the virtual keys).
The GPU is an Adreno 225, which means we’re talking about a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, possibly the same MSM8260A chipset as on the Xperia T (which has two Krait cores at 1.5GHz).
