Sony Yuga smartphone detailed online

The phone was first rumoured back in November, but it was quite vague, both in terms of features and in terms of how far down the line the Sony Yuga was. But as one site has got a hands-on with the handset, we think this should be an imminent launch from the Japanese giant.

That hands-on was via Russian site Mobile-review, which has somehow got hold of what seems to be a finished 'Yuga C6603'. That's almost certainly not the launch name, which is likely to be part of the Xperia family. It is also likely to be the next Sony flagship phone, with a launch generally expected at the CES event in January.

As a summary, Sony's latest attempt to get a larger chunk of the Android market looks to be a phone with a 5-inch screen offering full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080) and a more-than-competitive 440 ppi, not to mention Sony's Mobile Bravia Engine for enhanced colour reproduction.

You'll also find a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU with Adreno 320 graphics, and 2GB RAM, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, USB and micro-HDMI ports, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and LTE compatibility. Finally, a 12-megapixel camera is on the back, which tallies up with the rumour we heard previously.

The source doesn't go as far as a review, we'll have to wait for that until the launch. As we said, likely to be a CES launch, with a shelf date in the first quarter of 2012.
