Sony (SNE) on Tuesday tried to get out ahead of rival smartphone manufacturers in 2013 by showing off pictures of its two new Xperia smartphones. Per Engadget, Sony has put out pictures of both the Sony Xperia Z and the Xperia ZL ahead of their rumored launches later this month. We first got leaked details of the Xperia ZL this past fall back when it was codenamed “Odin” and was revealed to have a 5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and 2GB of RAM. The Xperia Z, which had previously been known as the “Yuga”, features very similar specs to the ZL including a 5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a quad-core processor, a 12-megapixel camera and 2GB of RAM.
