Sony C650X ‘Odin’ model number uncovered [2013 flagship]

by XB on 6th October 2012

in Rumours

Sony Mobile is revamping its model numbers from 2013 onwards. Gone is the ST/MT/LT code structure to denote small, medium and large touchscreen handsets. Instead what we now have is a new five character model number that will be the new standard going forward.

The User-Agent Profile (UAProf) for Sony Mobile’s 2013 flagship, codenamed ‘Odin’, has been discovered (see an extract below). From the brief information, we can tell that there are three new Sony Mobile model numbers: C6502, C6503 and C6506. We understand that these are all one handset – the different last character in each model number denotes the region/carrier to be released. The UAProf shows that this 2013 flagship is running Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean with 10.1.A.0.XXX firmware. Excited? Let the 2013 Xperia rumours begin.

  • MLH

    I want a 4.7″ 1080p Display, 2GB ram, CMOS 13MP camera capable of taking 16:9 images, a qualcomm s4 pro chip clocked at 1.7 Ghz, and a design that is a fusion of the Xperia ray from 2011 and Xperia ion from 2012, as well as some Android Jelly Bean love sprinkled with a a bit of Playstation Mobile.

    Odin, one eyed ancient nordic god – supercamera model. C as in Cybershot?

  • Raymond

    The C reminds me of Cyber Shot I loved those phones.

  • Raymond

    That phone will be my Eidolon lol…

  • m-cd

    New “pure” Sony flagship then. This will be interesting.


  • Sami

    i can´t wait to read more about this!

  • Im a Mindless Idiot

    “The UAProf shows that this 2013 flagship is running Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean” WTF?????
    C’mon Sony! ANDROID 4.2 is coming out!

  • 2013 FLAGSHIP

    XPERIA “ODIN” should have

    *4’8″ OLED display with BRAVIA ENGINE
    *1.5 GHZ A15 QUAD CORE with 2GB RAM
    *2500 Mah BATTERIES

    this is quite possibile …. BEST HARDWARE ,SOFTWARE , DESIGN & BATTERY will make SONY NO1 in flagship !

  • SONY XPERIA ODIN should have

    * 4.6″-5’0″ OLED display with bravia engine
    * 1.5 ghz A15 QUAD CORE or S4 PRO with 2GB RAM
    * 2500 MAH BATERY
    * SLEEK ALUMINIUM UNIBODY DESIGN with 7-8mm thickness

    with best design , hardware , software and battery life sony can have winner in them

  • XYZ

    I guess they changed their Code-name system from the previous one.
    I wonder what the specs are. Are there any benchmarks?

  • SONY XPERIA ODIN should have
    * 4.6″-5’0″ OLED display with bravia engine
    * 1.5 ghz A15 QUAD CORE or S4 PRO with 2GB RAM
    * 2500 MAH BATERY
    * SLEEK ALUMINIUM UNIBODY DESIGN with 7-8mm thickness
    with best design , hardware , software and battery life sony can have winner in them

  • Rune Christiansen

    hope they make one with the arc-shape, onscreen buttons and waterproof ;-)

  • Samuel Serafim

    Lets see more options. Good.

  • hmm


  • Dacha

    There will be two flagship phones from Sony next year. Just like this year with the S and the T.
    The first flagship will have a 4.6″ screen (same technology as in the V) with the new RS camera modules. The Q3 flagship will have a 5″ OLED screen along with the latest Quad core processor.

  • XYZ

    To the idiots complaining about this supposedly launching with 4.1.1 instead of 4.2, please do tell me how Sony intends to use software which hasn’t yet been revealed or released? The “Odin” can’t run software that doesn’t exist yet.

  • Sami

    are you just guessing or do you know this?

  • Like the V?

  • Brapicoco

    What’s the fuss about 4.2 it hasn’t gone official yet and people are demanding for it, 5in? too much for a smartphone.. OLED display? too much saturated plus BE2 very saturated. I think the more plausible approach is the new Exmor RS sensor and remove the overcompression issue, “C” reminds me of the cybershot and Sony please make it good this time, make it reach the market also ASAP, latest 2012 line have been announced but very few customers are getting it and losing interest.

    I think this phone should have a slim design,
    good GPU Adreno 320/latest POWERVR
    at least 2100 mah
    opticontrast display on V or even X-reality engine on their TV’s (rather impossible but maybe..)
    Camera that’s on par or even better than what’s on iphone 5 (Not an apple fanboy but we cannot deny how Apple uses Sony’s image sensors to the fullest)
    Latest OS out of the box that is optimized for the hardware and wont get crappy when updated to another version (2010,2011 and 2012 lines when updated to latest OS Versions sucked big time; JB out of the box more realistic since very few devices are running JB, wont get crappy if updated to rumored Key Lime Pie)

  • Dacha

    Those are the latest rumors based on forum posts. I think they are pretty accurate.

  • Steve Blows Jobz



  • actually, i like the 2011 to 2012’s naming… with LT,MT,ST….

  • NO OLED Please :) maybe Super LCD 2

  • thiru

    Sony pls release mobile like xperia ray with cybershot, water proof and with latest RS lens. I think for this updates only Sony notreleased international sx.

  • Arie

    Not too thin smartphone, there wil be no room for a bigger battery….

  • jag

    i want Xperia Bahamuth!

  • thiru

    Sony using different words. So pls don’t say as super LCD2. Sony ill use BE2 which previously used in xperia V

  • Hopeful

    This phone could be the one that puts Sony back in the smartphone game and compete with the likes of Samsung and HTC, granted that they put the right hardware. I just hope the put all their best technology in one flagship that will blow everyone away, which is something I know Sony is capable of.

  • lau

    xperia play codename zeus…odin will it be xperia play 2??

  • Rich

    I think having a 4.8-5.0 inch screen would be ideal – I really want the new phones to have LTE, and not region specific – how about quad band LTE?

  • TjaldidTjaldid

    I hope that the bezel is really thin then

  • rickiking

    cool! and also the Xperia Shiva.

  • Mark phillips

    For your information ICS was released last November but Sony launched it’s xperia S P U with gingerbread so please get your facts right!

  • come on whitemagic

  • jxPerience

    SONY MOBILE WHAT’S GOING ON? Don’t tell me you will continue the trend of releasing too much(very confusing for sony fans who wants perfect xperia model) similar phones on the market?

    If you will keep your 2012 strategy in 2013, im sorry Sony the reason why i am using android is because of YOU(sony mobile) but with this disappointment i think i need to go to other brand and another OS.

    Pls i want to stay using Sony Xperia Phones, release one perfect convincing handset which has different touch with your lower end phones.

    Since in 2013 the 6th year of Xperia Series in the mobile business.

  • Im a Mindless Idiot


  • Steve Blows Jobz

    I bet Sony will do it again with 2013 phones – releasing updates from 4.1.1 to 4.2 when 4.4 is out on Samsung & Co.

  • Everything that occured this year was based on the Sony Ericsson designed phones and occured during the turnover from SE to just Sony. If online sources on various forums are to be believed, all future Sony devices for 2013 will launch with current (at the time) versions of Android.

    Let’s wait and see what Sony itself can do with devices they themselves designed completely from the ground up.

  • XD

    HOLY CRAP!! The Xperia Odin!! LOL!!

  • almighty

    maybe ! =)

  • Ashish

    Plz give m. Linnks. To those forums

  • jxPerience

    Nope. Sony release GB for NXT series because of SE contribution. Now 2013 is different. Sony ALONE along with SONY Corporation will make the real SONY MADE XPERIA PHONE WITHOUT THE SHADOW OF OLD SONY ERICSSON.

  • this will come with xenon (probably, may b dropeed), design combination of arc (not truly arced) and nxt series, plus improved xperia v screen.

  • SoC

    I believe that the OLED technology from Sony is awesome. Unlike Shitsung!!

  • Nabil

    Yeah and the price ? Full HD screen ? Too much, the only difference it will do is ask more ressources, 720p is enough for the naked eye. Quad core ? Do you think you’re on a pc or what ? Dual core processor does fine, and requires less energy. 4GB of RAM ? 2GB is already insane and more than enough for a smartphone, and the more RAM you have, the less battery life you will have. 3000 mAh battery ? Instead of putting a 1080p screen, a quad core processor and 4GB of RAM that will ask a lot of energy, just put a regular 1800-2100 mAh battery with quad core s4, 1-2GB of RAM and an HD screen. You will get the exact same on an Android platform, with almost the same battery life but with a smaller battery thus a thinner phone.

    You guys really need to think a little bit instead of just asking for the best on your phone like idiots. That’s what samsung fanboys do.

  • reptile64

    Bring JB to Xperia S, U, P etc. first and then start developing new devices! Jerks!

  • Rune Christiansen

    yup ;-) that is my most wanted features along with it being lag-free, having a good screen and camera:-)

  • naathaanS

    ‘C’ ? Cybershot?

  • naathaanS

    These probably won’t come till next year’s March-April

  • XYZ

    I know that. What does that have to do with Android 4.2 and the Odin? Right now 4.2 hasn’t been released yet, so its impossible for the Prototype Odin to be running software that google hasn’t released to OEM’s yet.

  • XYZ

    Samsung makes 80-90% of all OLED panels used in consumer electronics. Samsung made the OLED panel used in the PSVita.
    Sony just know how to optimise the technology better seeing as they pioneered it.

  • XYZ

    Say goodbye to Sony then. Say good buy to all smartphones in general. Nobody will be offering the ridiculous specs you’re dreaming up. And expecting Sony to produce a product like this is ludicrous.

  • Keep dreaming

  • sakj

    Please share the links

  • arrowthefirst

    SonyEricsson is much greater in mobile phones. There were such masterpieces as K750 and the company was #2 after Nokia. And even brilliant 2011 handsets and NXT series were gorgeous. But now… we have dual core handsets with worse screens and higher price. And xperia V rolling out in december… Sad. I hope next handsets will be much better.

  • tru

    Hello some idiots wan to know only Sony updated all 2011 xperia to ics except one model.

  • arrowthefirst

    4.8″+ i awful. SGS3 and One X screens are too big. Normal people cant use it with one hand.
    It is much better to use 7″ tablet, when you use your phone with 2 hands.
    I hope there will be a metal clone with 4.3-4.5″, of course without buttons

    I seriously think that in 2013 SONY would have a much more different, aggressive and specific approach in the Mobile Industry.

  • lolsomany

    why people want their mobile phone with bigger screen?, its not practical anymore if mobile phone become more than 4.6++ inch, we need to use both hand just to send text. For me, the perfect phone is 4.3 inch screen. 1 more thing, its not practical to wish bigger battery capacity with thin body because right now researcher still searching for new generation of battery

  • Nezar

    For the same reason Sony is launching the xperia V with ICS two months after Samsung released the Note II with JB. Got it now?

  • James King

    Actually found out that AT&T dropped this one and isn’t going to pick it up after all. Guess I will have to buy one direct from Sony. AT&T you suck.

  • Mariano

    wow, this will cost 1 millon dollar each phone LOL

  • BadEnglish

    Yeah! I completely agree. Sony releases too much of xperia phones, which have similar specs. such a bad strategy and so confused.
    Hey! Sony we do want to see the real flagship, the real cool innovation, the one perfect phone from you!

    Dude, you are not understanding what xyz was trying to say…. give it up. Blame the English

  • LoveBird

    I agree 4.3-4.6 inch screen is perfect

  • SonyFan

    5″??? Bullshit!! Noooo!!!
    Big phone looks ugly as hell, 4.3″ (maybe 4.6″ at most) is the best screen size.
