Looks like Sony’s 2013 flagship device has been captured on camera. The Sony C650X goes by the codename of Odin and is rumoured to compete with all the other phone/tabets – aka phablets – on the market. The launch date is unknown but the Odin is expected to sport a 5-inch display that has a resolution of 1080 x 1920, plus pack a quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. In addition, the Odin is an Android-powered device and currently runs OS 4.1.1, but by the time it’s released it might have OS 4.2 Key Lime Pie.

Taking a look at the pic shows the Sony device with the familiar “Xperia” branding, but it’s unclear what name they’ll go-to-market with. No details on the camera or how thin it is. Hopefully more details surface…

    I hope it impresses us and I also hope that circle Thing is the camera reflection and not some sort of button/wheel

      It’s the lens of the camera that is taking the picture of the phone.

    The circle is the reflection of the DSLR camera used to take the picture… looks good but 5″? Thats pretty much a phablet, Note 2 is already out anyway… dont have to wait for February!

    Must be Andre the Giant holding it if they want me to believe that’s a 5″ screen.

      It’s possible. The 5 inch Panasonic Eluga Power is actually small.

    Only three fingers and a thumb. Shouldn’t that be the news?

    Just make the PS Vita phone already.

    It’s the only thing that Sony brings to the table that Samsung and HTC can’t.

    And I’d buy one if it didn’t suck like the Xperia Play (which had a pretty good gamepad but shitty screen, processor everything else).

    You sure it won’t be shipping with Gingerbread?

    Here’s to Sony yet again – the keystone cops of Android Phones. Interesting specs, staid and tired design showing no innovation. Likely shipping with a very out-of-date OS by 2013 standards which is the hallmark of Sony. Honestly wait for HTC, Samsung or a worthy Nexus as Sony has never, ever, ever seemed able to get the job done right. Ditched my Ion due to bad battery, old CPU with a 3 month update for OS that should have shipped at release – ICS. That means another year for Jellybean (With newer versions rolling out) and likely the last one available for it because they’ll end of life it – 2011 models case-in-point. Sony is possibly the worst at Android and showing no signs of improvement.

    This looks very similar to the Sony Ericsson X2
