Sony’s current flagship device is the phone that James Bond uses, the Xperia T. It’s a solid device and comes stacked with a 4.6-inch HD display (1280 x 720), 1.5GHz dual core processor and a 13MP camera that shoots 1080p HD videos. Impressive, but Sony’s forging ahead and looking at their next flagship to overtake Apple and Samsung.
According to a report in the Financial Times Deutschland, Dennis van Schie, CVP Sales & Marketing at Sony Mobile Communications, has stated they “will create in the near future a flagship model that can compete with Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy S III.” Apparently this said device, perhaps the rumoured quad-core 5-inch 1080p Jelly Bean “Yuga” that’s leaked online, will be officially announced at CES 2013 in January, or at Mobile World Congress in February. No other details on specs.
In addition, Sony is currently solely focussed on Android but has not ruled out Windows Phone. van Schie was quoted as saying “We have a good relationship with Microsoft and the development of Windows Phone are watching closely. If it succeeds, we will not be caught off guard.”
