Rumors: Xperia with 4.8-Inch Screen, Snapdragon 600 CPU Mid-Year

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.
