Sony’s next flagship handsets, the Xperia Z and Xperia ZL, have popped up online, appearing in press shots inadvertently showcased by Sony themselves on an official page.
The Xperia Z looks to be the official name of the rumoured Sony Xperia Yuga, which leaked late last year, showing off a 5-inch, 1080p display. Indeed, the image shown seems very similar to previous spyshot leaks of the handset, with identical placement of an oversized power button on the side.
The Xperia ZL on the other hand looks to be the final form of the rumoured Sony Odin handset. With a slightly more compact chassis similar to the Sony Xperia Go, it pops the front facing camera in an unusual spot in the bottom right corner.
Internally, both phones are expected to feature a a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 5-inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM and rear 13MP camera.
Sony are expected to reveal their 2013 mobile line-up at next week’s CES exhibition in Las Vegas. We’ll have all the details as they’re officially revealed, so check back soon for more details on the Xperia Z and Xperia ZL
