We are still seeing rumors discussing availability dates for the Sony Xperia Z smartphone and it look as if talk of the successor has already begun. The handset has yet to have a name. Or for that matter, an image. What we do have however is a codename and some basic details. Seems things are moving a bit quick, however the details of the Sony C6802 have recently been spotted on the HTML5 Test website.
Before we get to the specs, lets deal with the successor aspect. The Xperia Z is in the C660x series for Sony, hence the speculation that a C680x could be a follow-up device. Perhaps more important than which current device this still unannounced device may replace though, lets shift over to those specs.
The Sony C6802 is show to be running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and with a display resolution of 1920 x 1080. A specific display size has yet to be revealed. While seeing little bits and pieces seems to be the norm these days, there are some potential issues here. To begin with, while one may be happy to see Android 4.2 Jelly Bean in the details, we suspect that will not be the current version by the time Sony announces this handset.
Of course, there is always the if (as opposed to when) aspect also. The other catch here, as we mentioned earlier, these details are coming by way of the HTML5 Test website and that means someone could have posted these by spoofing their browser agent. Bottom line, as far as rumors and leaks go, we are more than a bit skeptical at this point in time.
