Benchmark confirms 1080p display for Sony C660X ‘Yuga’

by XB on 14th October 2012

in Rumours

We are slowly piecing together a jigsaw of some awesome hardware for Sony Mobile’s 2013 flagship device(s). What we know so far is that there will be two sibling flagships – the Sony C650X ‘Odin’ (C6502, C6503, C6506) and Sony C660X ‘Yuga’ (C6603). They will be armed with a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chipset (APQ8064 & Adreno 320 graphics) and MDM9615 baseband chip with LTE support. These phones are currently being tested with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and 10.1.A.0.XXX firmware.

Now we can confirm that the Sony C660X ‘Yuga’ will have a 1080p (1920 x 1080) display following an appearance in the NenaMark2 benchmark. The benchmark actually points to a resolution of 1794 x 1080, but 126 pixels are likely being used for the on-screen buttons introduced in Android Ice Cream Sandwich. The entry has already been removed from the NenaMark website, but still appears in Google Cache results.

Screen size still remains a mystery for now, but we can make some educated guesses. It is very unlikely to be sub 5-inches given the 1080p display resolution. We know that LG and Sharp have announced their own 5-inch 1080p displays. However, the biggest hint comes from a recent announcement from Japan Display Inc (JDI). For those that don’t know, JDI is a new company for small and medium-sized displays formed in April 2012 through the integration of Sony Mobile Display, Toshiba Mobile Display and Hitachi Displays. It recently announced that it has started to mass produce a 5.0-inch TFT-LCD IPS display module with 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution and 443 PPI.

We do wonder if a smartphone display with pixel density over 400 PPI is a bit overkill though and whether we’d even be able to tell the difference from a 300 PPI device. We’re also not sure what kind of demands this would have on battery life, but it sounds superb nonetheless and all evidence suggests it will come to the next Sony Xperia flagship.

    Hopefully they will be able to keep the device relatively small, like SGS3 at least

  • Wow i will buy this phone… Goodbye Xperia S…

  • ahomad hosin

    could be a new tab?

  • Gökay Kaya

    Thats interesting, if this specs are true, Sony cant stay behind the other companys … Full HD and S4 Pro …

  • OMG !
    Bring it on Sony !
    if it equipped with cyber-shot , for sure i’ll buy it !

  • goldenblls

    I’m salivating already. Please, please, please ship it soon after announcement. My money will be burning a hole in my pocket.

  • If you compare a Droid Razr M to Xperia V it’s embarassing in dimensions. I hope odin and yuga will be not that big models, but quite for sure they will show dimensions like Samsung Galaxy Note II and 5″ HTC Phablet.

  • Mark phillips

    I hope things just turn around for Sony and they just sh*t loads on Samdung’s face!

  • 1080p resolution is completely useless on a mobile display.

  • Rune Christiansen

    I’d definitely say that over 350ppi is overkill as no matter how close you get to the Xperia S screen, you can’t see individual pixels. I really don’t mind if they push the boundaries, but they have to make it run smoothly, which is still a problem on many their devices.

  • lovebmw

    Here is what amazes me, if Sony gets those sites out, wouldn’t the processor be behind for that era? I mean, Samsung and lg will not issue a phone with these processor specs I am sure they will come up with something faster These processor specs are already in their current phones…

  • amgh

    i hate phablet i hope this is phone with 4.6 display size

  • yeo wee kian

    ok enough. i will wait for it. so what if my contracts end now!

  • Nasar Khan

    Finally Sony have decided to bring out a proper beast of a phone. The hardware will be the best around. If the design of the phone is right which it usually is then this will be a definite winner for next year. Just one thing… I would like to see Sony improving the viewing angles on their future phones.

    Looks like I won’t be keeping this Xperia T for very long. Shame really as it’s a very good phone and the best Sony phone I have ever used.

  • Mark phillips

    For Samsung HTC and LG they will come up with A15 processor dual core thats inside Iphone but atleast Sony will be considered a major player from now on! Be positive.

  • lovebmw

    I am trying to be positive, but again that is aiming for the best phone at second place…. interesting to see what is up.

  • I concur

  • I think this phone will be Full HD all-round like Xperia S, Front Camera will be 1080p capable, Recordind of rear camera should be 60fps……

  • Crapz

    1080p is awesome…but thing is, sony usually will put low capacity battery on its phone…hope this phone will have <2500mah or else forget it…

  • zaryab

    How can you forget to mention the gamepad like Xperia Play

  • Aj

    Multi touch upto 10 fingers

  • Aj

    Hmmmm i dont think how many of us will buy a 5 inch smartphone…..but sony might convert galaxy note fans in buying this phone

  • i also said this in the earlier post and again i am going to say this… believe it or not!!! It entirely depends on you…
    4 days ago phonearena and a lot other sites reported abt XPERIA ODIN specs… but to my surprise XB didn’t even care to report those leaked specs…Actually i was the one to tip phonearena abt the specs of ODIN(i found all that info in esato forums courtesy of a sony insider known as “randomuser”).The same specs are now being confirmed by XB tipsters.i am now going to provide a lot more detail abt SONY’S 2013 lineup!!! (these too have been revealed by randomuser). Here it is—In 2013 there will be 3 SONY flagships.In CES 2013 there will be twin XPERIA phones (DOGO) with slightly less specs as compared to ODIN and YUGA.In MWC 2013 SONY will unviel ODIN and YUGA(another twin phones)And in the 2nd half of 2013 there will be another flagship(even more powerful than ODIN, YUGA)These are more specs of SONY’S upcoming flagships-ODIN->* 5 inch IPS screen with 1080p resolution (manufactured by JAPAN DISPLAYS, a joint venture of SONY). Japan Displays will start the mass production of these screens during this month.* 2-3 gb ram (nothing is confirmed as of now)* 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 chipset (APQ8064)* android jelly bean/nxt android iteration (jelly bean is only for prototype devices)YUGA->Exactly same specs as ODIN, but screen of YUGA will be of 6 inch with same resolutionthat’s why YUGA codename is higher(C660x) as compared to ODIN (C650x)
    THE nxt Flagship in 2nd half of 2013 will come with either QUALCOMM MSM8974 or NovaThor 9600.Diff. bet APQ8064 and MSM8974 APQ8064 – 28nm – Quad Core Krait 1.5-1.7GHz – Adreno 320 – Can capture 1080p@24/30fps – BT4+WiFi a/b/g/n + No Cell Modem
    MSM8974 – 28nm – Quad Core Krait 2.0-2.5GHz – Adreno 320 – Can capture 1080p@60fps – BT4+WiFi a/b/g/n/ac + LTE + HSPA+ networks

  • some people might not believe it but not even a single part of it is speculation!!!
    all the info i mentioned here comes from “randomuser” from ESATO forums…
    he knew about Xperia ODIN, YUGA, DOGO, GAGA and their specs back in JUNE 2012 when nobody even had a clue about what sony 2013 flagships will be like.
    Head on to ESATO forums( u can find the exact link in phonearena’s post abt leaked specs of ODIN) and see and confirm urself through his posts made in june 2012.

  • It would be a “beast of a phone” IF Sony would release it in the coming weeks and not in Q2 2013. The specs are similar to those of the LG Optimus G despite the 1080p display, but the LG phone is already available in some markets. And not to forget the “Oppo Find 5″ which has all the rumored specs of the upcoming Sony devices (5” 1080p display, S4 Quad, 2GB RAM…), but the Oppo won’t be released sometime next year, but in the coming weeks.
    You see, by the time Sony launches their H1 flagships, spec-wise they won’t be outstanding like they would be now (compared to other high end devices of course)

  • You can keep on waiting till you die. By time the Odin/Yuga is available there will be rumors/ leaks of better speced device e.g. Cortex A-15, 128GB flash, 4GB RAM…

  • Chelios

    Don’t talk crap. Sony might put in small batteries, but they last forever. I can easily get 2 days and a half of moderate use out of my Xperia S.

  • I don’t need huge quad core devices with insane 1080p displays which won’t last a day! Give me decent sized device (4,2-4,5″) with a 720p display, an outstanding camera (no Megapixel race anymore, please!) which deserves to be branded Cybershot AND put an insane big battery in it > 3200mAh!!! It doesn’t matter if the device becomes 2-3 millimeters thicker because of a huge battery.

  • Nope! Not for marketing purpose! ;)

  • Lunkz

    5 inch display? This is to huge for a smartphone.
    IMHO 4,2 inches are the best size for my pocket, how should I put a 5 inch without the case in my pocket? This is madness!

  • More likely is Quad Core A15 in SGS4

  • Lunkz


  • Lunkz

    please with xenon flash and led for video

  • Madness?! THIS IS SONY!!! (Sorry couldn’t resist)

  • XYZ

    I’m pretty sure they’ll have a smaller phone out there too. But this one is probably aimed at the Galaxy Note market. Might eat into it too with that FHD display.

  • Pingback: Sony C660X “Yuga” kommt mit 1080p Display | Beatmasters WinLite Blog()

  • Lunkz

    i hope so

  • As we use our phones more and more, carrying a larger device becomes more valuable and less of a hassle.
    The ppi is welcomed in my opinion, and should be by anyone with average-good vision.
    The only thing that could be commented on is the actual size. Some people (like me) do not want 5″ devices. 1080p videos need LTE for streaming, but these devices seem to have that. But I’d love to see the same ppi in a smaller device.

  • oh .. miss my old k850i .. what a great camera phone !

  • Samsung will probably use a new Exynos for their flagship.

  • DisplayMate calculated that average vision eyes on a 20 year old are able to see up to 457 ppi at a distance of 12 inches.
    It is not about making out pixels. Lines and color-blends are notably nicer.

  • holy f***!!!!

  • naathaanS

    Now I really have to wait till Sony’s next Xperia line up

  • XYZ

    Holy ****! 60fps on a 1080p Screen!? That is hench.

  • Arie

    That’s DEFINITELY my phone!!! Great camera & great battery life with awesome display! I mean awesome, not super HUGE!!

  • th3d

    What? People r buying 4.8 inch phones like crazy, and you think they will stay away from a 5 inch phone? Just give it a slim bezel like Moto did with Razr HD and it will be an immense success, and still smaller than SGS3.

  • Curious

    Wait, if the screen display itself is already 5″, wouldn’t that make the overall device ALMOST the size of the Samsung’s Note series? Could this be Sony’s starting series of “note” devices?

  • Awesome

    I’m assuming you don’t call or turn on 3G much.. Mine’s usually about 1 FULL day,24hrs, average… Not that i’m displease with it, in fact, compared to the phone the rest of my friends had, it’s already considered awesome.

  • Mariano

    bla bla bla

  • Yuga is the DC character, based on Norse mythology. An enemy of Odin.

  • they are already testing S4 pro, the quad core processor, consider that the s4 dual core can handle 1080p 30hz fine, the s4 pro should be more than enough for 1080p 60hz.

  • AnP

    Agreed, but on a realistic note, can we ever really use 10 fingers at once! :) But yeah, it’s worth noting… This was something I compiled long ago. Excuse the shortcoming..

  • AnP

    As much as that is a good thing, in a smartphone with 4.8″ or higher screen size, you really wouldn’t want it to be a slide just to house a game pad! That would be good on something on the same lines or size of the Play!

  • AnP

  • DJMashup

    Not everybody wants a huge screen, I don’t give a shit what other people are buying and your generalistic comment makes it sound like you want a phone the size of a tablet so that means everybody should, more to the point, some of us actually use phones for their main use, I have an iPad and a Nexus 7 so why the fuck do I need a 5″ screen on my phone? don’t make yourself sound like an ass by speaking for everybody, hopefully Sony don’t start thinkiing like you.

  • DJMashup

    From the sound of it you don’t have many friends, 2 days? seriously!

  • DJMashup

    How many flagships will there be then? There’s about 4 at the moment and they have gone overkill with the entry level phones, talk about a load of shit. Don’t get me wrong, I love some of them but specs wise most of them suck and there all behind my Ray, the top end phones obviously aren’t but there isn’t one of them that I rate on design, size or specs I actually need and care about.

  • DJMashup

    I’m hoping they bring out a new phone that is the size of the Ray or U maybe but with a good camera in, all the new phones are a step back from my Ray apart from processor which means nothing for anyone who uses their phones for the normal things like calls, messages, camera, music and I don’t need quad core for that. What I do need is a phone that looks nice, isn’t the size of a tablet but has a good camera, Sony’s recent approach seems to be one of if it isn’t a huge phone then it doesn’t get any decent specs which as phones like the Arc S, Ray etc prove, there is a huge market for smaller phones and those people don’t want to have to compromise quality just to have a smaller screen.

  • Aj

    It is very useful specialing playing emulator playstation games :)….xperia t,tx,v have 10 fingers multi touch :)

  • den go get urself an Xperia Tipo, if u want it to be pocket frndly

  • Lunkz

    The Tipo IMHO ugly and the specs too.
    The V is a great phone has the great size with his 4,3 inches

  • Skeith Levion

    Technology Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine-2/X-Reality Engine
    X-Reality is overkill, that would make Shamesung gimmick Super AMOLED Plus looks like crap.

  • Cloud

    5 inch phones is a big phone and look ugly as shit!!!

  • jxPerience

    who will buy LG phones? I dont see anyone in my place. LG Optimus G is promising but with that brand name it will not sell as good as its specs.

  • Nex

    13 Megapixel Exmor RS sensor is nice. I would use 5 Mpx output as default, and switch to 13 Mpx anytime I want highest definition for later processing, mostly when no real camera around.

  • TjaldidTjaldid

    didn’t someone post a link that said that they were making a 6″ and 5″ screen

  • TjaldidTjaldid

    not when you connect it to a TV for 1080P out put

  • adsada_arc

    Sony should definitely stick an OLED screen in thier 2013 flagship, if they want to compete with others such as superamoled they need something more to sell then just ‘bravia engine’ which I don’t think consumers care about this tbh. Plus their viewing angles suck on all their current devices which is annoying when showing stuff to friends

  • metcarded

    The only thing I want from Sony is better battery performance.
    I will buy this 5inch phone or any other sub 4inch phone from sony without second thought if they stick a battery in there that can run the display for at least 8 hours at reasonable brightness levels.

  • paul4id

    It is an absurd specification, that is wildly impractical and will only be of interest to a few niche buyers. However, it is something that Sony must release to shut-up the stupid tech journalists who claim that unless Sony releases a phone with a 20″ screen and 3000 core processor and £5000 price-tag then Sony will be “behind” and “irrelevant”.

  • paul4id

    Indeed, the Motorola RAZR M is a good template to follow. A 4.2″ screen in a compact package and massive battery. Justuse a better screen technology and add a QWERTY version and you have a sale.

  • AnP

    1080p or Full HD coming to mobile displays is good. But am shocked how come Sony of all decided to take the desperate jump to 5″ or more phone size! 5″ may still be considerably okay with respect to the already existent Note II. But rumors of a 6″ seems a bit way too much! I really hope they stop at 5″ & don’t just blindly follow ‘the competition’. Sony, please don’t get so lost in competition that you go overboard.

  • I’m curious about the beauty of its design, should be amazing…

  • Zoom Digital, up to 10x – Won’t happen… if this is on a smartphone…. it would look like crappy

  • Aj

    If the specs r true…. one thing is for sure that it will sell like hot cakes irrespective of who among ourselves buys it or not :)

  • i’m gamer

    i hope it will be xperia play 2 …

  • mountain

    If they can make a 1080p smartphone, why can’t they bother make a 1080p tablet? I mean, the Xperia Tablet is nice, but if they have the same spec, as Yuga, but a larger screen, I am sure I would find some use.

    3g is on at all times, I never turn it off. Push email enabled at all times at well. Note that I said moderate use, I can’t get a day out of it with regular heavy use. But if needed I can get it past 2 and a half days easily. I’d suggest spending some time with your phone and setting it up properly. It can only take one app or widget to steal hours of your battery life.
