It appears that Sony will be the next smartphone manufacturer to cross the 5-inch screen threshold with its upcoming Yuga. Russian tech site Mobile-Review.com has obtained a leaked version of the phone and posted a lengthy preview of the device. According to details and photos posted on the site, the Yuga features a 5-inch screen with a 1080p resolution (1920x1080). Like the HTC DROID DNA, the Yuga has a high display quality at 440 pixels per inch. It also includes the Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine to tweak contrast, brightness, and color settings when viewing multimedia content.
The Yuga, which is expected to be unveiled at CES early in January, is still just a prototype, so details on the phone could easily change before it is released. For now at least, these are some highlights listed by Mobile-Review:
- The phone has a non-removable internal battery (mAh not yet known)
- LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, and USB Host mode are supported
- 12 megapixel camera with LED flash and second microphone
- micro HDMI included to display video on larger screens
- Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Sony Mobile's custom Android user experience included
- Supports Smart Connect to trigger settings based on events, time of day, or battery level.source: Mobile-Review
