We already have some idea about the phones in Sony’s 2013 Xperia lineup, now details have emerged about what they are going to be called.
The C660X, which was until now known by its codename ‘Yuga‘, is rumored to be the Xperia Z. According to a source on XDA, the Xperia Z will be both water and dust resistant with IP57 certification. It will also sport a 5” 1080p display with OptiContrast technology, which will reduce reflection and glare under sunlight.
Odin, which is the other powerhouse that Sony will be releasing next year, will probably be launched as the Xperia X. It will be identical to the Xperia Z in terms of specifications with a 5” full HD display, Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core chipset, and 13 megapixel camera. However, it will sport a different design.
There are also rumors that the Xperia Z and the Xperia X might be announced in China on January 15 at a price point similar to that of Xperia T. Even if that doesn’t turn out to be true, the phones will almost surely make an appearance at next year’s CES and MWC.
