New photos of Sony Xperia Yuga appear, some specs confirmed

17 December, 2012

The next-generation flagship from Sony, the C660X Xperia Yuga, has already made a few unofficial appearances and now it has fallen into the hands of Eldar Murtazin. He posted two new photos and confirmed a couple of features, which the rumor mill was uncertain about.

The back of the phone is flat and made of black glass as previous rumor indicated. There's also a shutter key on the side of the phone.

As for the screen, it's a 5" LCD with 1080p resolution (and not OLED). The chipset inside is a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro and not a Samsung Exynos 5 Quad, as previously rumored. It's interesting that Eldar reports that the Yuga can get quite warm when the chipset is under load (we've seen a similar thing happen with the LG Optimus G and the Nexus 4, which use the same chipset).

What Eldar didn't clarify was the camera resolution. Early rumors pointed to a 12MP or 13MP camera (settling on 12MP), but a new rumor cropped up saying the Yuga will pack a 16MP shooter.

Sony is expected to unveil the Xperia Yuga (under another name, of course, Yuga is just a codename) at CES and bring it to the MWC later too.
