Sony’s (SNE) CES 2013 press conference is scheduled to start at 8:00 p.m. Eastern on Monday evening, but one of the stars of the show is anything but a mystery. Press images and even a full review of Sony’s upcoming Xperia Z phablet already hit the Internet last month, and now a fresh round of leaked images has been published by Chinese gadget site Digi-wo.com. Xperia Z spec highlights include a 1080p HD display, a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a microSD slot and a 13-megapixel camera, and Sony is expected to announce launch details during Monday night’s event.
