Sony’s recently leaked Xperia Z has been sighted once more, this time in the flesh at the CES 2013 exhibition floor, cementing rumours of an imminent unveiling.
The Japanese electronics giant’s poor track record of keeping a lid on new product launches continued after the Xperia Z – formerly known as Yuga – was photographed on location at the Las Vegas tech expo, giving us another glimpse at the handset ahead of its expected official announcement later today.
A number of screenshots, ostensibly taken from a promo video, have also emerged online, revealing the handset from various angles, while confirming several major features on board.
Among these are a five-inch full HD Reality display with an ‘OptiContrast panel’, a 13-megapixel Exmor RS shooter and a water-resistant casing housed in a so-called “skeleton frame structure”.
The Xperia Z is also mooted to pack a Snapdragon S4 processor and come with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) out of the box.
The leaks drop hot on the heels of an email from Sony Mobile with the strapline: “The extraordinary is coming”. From what we’ve seen so far, it might just happen.
