Sony’s 2013 smartphone models leak with flagship ‘Odin’ device leading the charge

Will 2013 be the year of the Xperia? Anything is possible. Sony (SNE) is reportedly set to jumpstart its lineup of Android-powered Xperia smartphones with a flagship device codenamed “Odin.” Details are scant, but according to Xperiablog, model numbers for the device are: C6052, C6053 and C6056, with the last number of each model corresponding to a different region. Odin will reportedly run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. A mid-range “C160X” with 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7227A CPU and an Adreno 200 GPU will also be released with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich with a paltry 480 x 320 resolution display of an unknown size. Finally, an entry-level “C150X” will hit the scene, although specs for it haven’t been leaked.

AndroidAuthority speculates that the “C” in the smartphone model numbers could be a hint that Sony will revive the Cyber-shot branding it once included with some of its features phones back in the day. Obviously, if the Cyber-shot branding does make a comeback, it could mean Odin and its posse will sport some powerful cameras.
