Sony Yuga to Go on sale as Sony Xperia Z

Sony Xperia Z

Sony Yuga, the high-end smartphone of the Japan-based phone maker that made the headlines over the past few weeks has now received an official name, used by the company when the device will go on sale officially. Sony Yuga will be named Sony Xperia Z, continuing the company’s tradition to use letters for their smartphones and tablets.

Besides unveiling the official name of Sony Yuga, the source also mentions the technical specifications of the smartphone, but we are recommending you to take them with a pinch of salt. Rumor has it that Sony Xperia Z will be both water and dust resistant, and that it will be capable of absorbing tougher shocks, too.

It seems that the 5-inch terminal will have a display resolution of 1080p and a pixel density of 443 ppi. We also find out that the smartphone will make use of OptiContrast technology, usually employed for the Sony TVs, but also for the Sony Xperia Tablet S and Xperia V terminals.

The OptiContrast technology absorbs the backlight leaks, improving the quality of the pictures displayed on the screen. The result is a screen with high contrast and natural colors.

The rumor mill brings nothing new regarding the technical specs of Xperia Z: 5-inch full HD display, quad-core processor (most likely Snapdragon S4 Pro), 2 GB of RAM and 13, or 16 megapixel camera. Let’s hope that Sony will not set the price of its flagship too high.
