Another new Sony Xperia model is on the horizon. Picasa has revealed the Sony C5303 model number, codenamed HuaShan. This phone is expected to launch in a number of regions globally. Our sources tell us that the Sony C530X will have a number of model numbers (C5302, C5303, C5306) along with a release in China.
The EXIF details also highlight new firmware version 12.0.A.0.273, i.e. eDream 12. We had previously seen eDream 10 firmware appear on the Sony C650X ‘Odin’. HuaShan is likely to be a mid-range model in 2013 versus the Yuga and Odin flagships.
