5-inch HD screens, quad-core processors, 2 GB of DRAM -- these phones don't want for much
is a term that began to be bandied about last year. While somewhat impractical -- few apps can truly fully leverage the processing power these devices pack -- the notion of having the power of a desktop of a few years back in a device you hold in your palm is undeniably cool. And those 5-inch displays sure do look gorgeous.
While most of the major Android and Windows Phone OEMs have announced or are planning such high-end flagship models for 2013, one of the sleeker entrants is Sony Corp.'s (
and "Odin" super-phones, which broke cover last night, due to a possibly accidental auto-post to a Sony website.
The devices are expected to pack a 5-inch 1080p (1920x1080 pixel) S-LCD display, a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor from Qualcomm, Inc. (
), 2 GB of DRAM, a 13 megapixel Exmor RS imaging sensor on the rear, and an Adreno 320 GPU.

The Xperia Z (Yuga) is expected to be a slightly bulkier build and may ship first or sell at a lower price point. The Xperia ZL (Odin) is a sleeker build packing identical hardware. The front-facing imaging sensor (for video-chats, self-portraits, etc.) is position in the standard location with Yuga, but is shuffled down to the bottom-right corner (rather unusual) with Odin.
The pair of super-phones is expected to get official at the
2013 Consumer Electronics Show
next week in Las Vegas, Nevada, and by the looks of it they may help launch the OEM whose sleek designs
once inspired Apple
, Inc.'s (
) iconic iPhone design to return to a leading role in an industry where it has
struggled in more recent years
