Sony Xperia C670X to pack a 4.8in 1080p screen, Snapdragon 600?

01 March, 2013

Sony showed off the Xperia ZL and the Xperia Tablet Z at the MWC, but no unannounced models. But unannounced models are starting to pile up in the rumor mill, the latest is the Sony Xperia C670X.

As a comparison, the Xperia ZL model name is the C650X, while the Xperia Z is the C660X. Recently we saw some browser info on the Sony C680X and wondered if there will be a C670X. Well, most probably, yes – at least that's what a tipster told

The C670X sounds like an HTC One competitor, judging by its rumored specs. It will reportedly have a 4.8” 1080p screen, a Snapdragon 600 chipset with a quad-core Krait 300 CPU at 1.8GHz, a 13MP camera Exmore RS camera and will run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

The tip was accompanied by a rendered frontal image of the Sony Xperia C670X, which may not be legit. Still, if it's real, judging by 4.8” diagonal of the screen, we estimate the phone will measure 133.7 x 70.1mm. That’s slightly shorter but wider than the HTC One (137.4 x 68.2 mm). The Sony C670X has no hardware buttons on the front, which accounts for the height difference.

Will the C670X/C680X duo relate to each other as the Xperia Z / ZL (C650X/C660X)? We are yet to see. Well, this rumor doesn’t have a lot of evidence behind it (we checked the usual benchmarks scores sites and such, nothing yet), so keep your salt shaker around while reading this.
