A few days ago we reported that the Sony Xperia Yuga was spotted at the FCC, suggesting that the device could be on track for a possible unveiling in the near future. Now thanks to the folks at Mobile-Review, they have managed to get their hands on alleged photos of the device. However since there have been many attempts to fool the public into thinking that certain devices were real, but were in fact photoshopped, we suggest you take this with a grain of salt for now, and an added degree of skepticism probably wouldn’t hurt. The device itself appears to be rather unassuming and looks to be your regular smartphone, although assuming we have this right, the back portion could be covered in glass, taking its cue from the iPhone 4/4S and the Google Nexus 4.
The back portion also seems to be in line with the FCC filing spotted a few days ago, but then again if it was photoshopped, whoever did it could have just followed the design. World has it that the Yuga could be Sony’s take on the phablet with a 5” display, and according to Mobile-Review, it will be powered by the latest chipset from Qualcomm, presumably the Snapdragon S4 Pro. Either way with CES around the corner and MWC following the month after, perhaps Sony could be taking that opportunity to unveil its 2013 flagship phones then. Since we will be on hand at both CES and MWC, do check back with us then for the details.
