Specs for Sony’s next flagship Xperia smartphones, codenamed Odin, have received a leak refresh. This latest batch of specs suggest the use of a quad-core processor, coupled with 2GB of RAM. The Odin, rumoured to bear a 5-inch full HD display, is expected to be officially announced in early 2013.
There has also been talk of a Sony smartphone-tablet hybrid in the works, with a 6-inch display, but that's all we now about that rumoured device yet.
Previous leaks surrounding the Odin had revealed 4G connectivity and Android Jelly Bean out-of-the-box. The fact that Sony may now be deploying a quad-core processor in its smartphones is in line with the company’s stated belief that quad-core phones did not make sense until “performance matches with battery efficiency”.
It will be interesting to see what Sony does at CES 2013 , because it is very likely that the Xperia Odin will only be unveiled then. The device bears fairly powerful specifications, but roughly what you'd expect for a smartphone that is surely targeting the Samsung Galaxy Note II. We would still take these leaks with a pinch of salt, however.
