While most of the world was greeting new year 2013, Sony was working hard putting new images of the Xperia Z – codenamed “Yuga” – and the Xperia ZL – codenamed “Odin” (previously also known as “Xperia X”). They seem to be early press images, and although they were not placed on display publicly, they were discovered anyway. Both handsets are expected to be discussed at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, which is just a few days away, but still it is nice to take another look at them.
The Sony Xperia ZL is slightly sleeker and is speculated to be available in most countries, except for Japan, which will receive the Xperia Z. A very notable difference between these two phones is the placement of the front-facing camera at the bottom right corner in the Xperia ZL. It is rather unusual for today’s phones and reminds a bit about the good old Nokia N9.
The rest of the specs are said to be identical. Both devices come with 5-inch LCD display with 1080p at 441 ppi, a quad-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with Adreno 320 handling graphics and 2 GB of RAM. Both Xperia handsets are expected to have a 13 megapixel Exmor RS camera sensor on back, LTE connectivity and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean will probably be pre-installed.
