Sony Mobile didn't unveil a new device at the MWC but, according to the rumor mill, the Japanese device maker is working on a new flagship device, codenamed Sony C670X. Succeeding the Xperia Z (C660X), the C670X will have a smaller, higher-density screen and offer an increase in processing power. Specifically, the device would have a 4.8-inch 1080p Full HD touchscreen, a 1.8 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor with Adreno 320 graphics, a 13 MP Exmor RS camera, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of internal storage, according to alleged leaked specs. The tipster, who also provided a stock image or render, said the new phone will hit shelves in the middle of the year with Android 4. 2 Jelly Bean on board.
What Else You Need To Know
Sony unveiled early this year the 4-core chip-powered and waterproof 10.1-inch Xperia Tablet Z, as well as the top-end 5-inch Xperia Z and ZL smartphones, as part of its bid to revitalize its mobile electronics business.
If true, this new handset would be pretty much on par with HTC’s flagship One smartphone, which has a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 chipset, and an Adreno 320 GPU.
