Sony ODIN might hit the market as Xperia X

The Sony C650X ODIN might be a huge leap by Sony or a total disaster for the Xperia line of smartphones but either way, we are about to witness amazing features in 2013. The device is expected to debut either at CES or MWC.

The smartphone comes after the Sony C660X “Yuga”, which was likely to be named Xperia Z. The C650X ODIN is expected to feature a 5-inch 1080p display with a Sony BRAVIA engine and a quad-core processor.

The processor is rumoured to be the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core SoC clocked at 1.5GHz, which is the same processor used in LG Optimus G and Google Nexus 4.

It is not clear at the moment how different the ODIN will be to the Yuga. It could be a case of being region-specific models of the same product. Sony really needs a win because it has not exactly had a smooth ride to the top since the arrival of Android but these devices might just do the trick.
