Sony 'Odin' Smartphone to Debut as 'Xperia X'Reuters

Japanese electronics major Sony is reportedly planning to launch its 'Odin' smartphone with a moniker 'Xperia X' in the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show in January.

Speculations are rife that the key features of Xperia X are identical to one of Sony's smartphone, Xperia Z (Sony Yuga). Xperia X will support dual-SIM slots and the smartphone will be thicker and heavier than Xperia Z.

Xperia X reportedly features a rough texture with stripes reminiscent of those seen on the 'Xperia E Dual'. Further, Xperia X is pegged to feature a front-facing camera at the bottom of the screen and not on the top like every other secondary camera, reported Unwired View.

Specifications as reported in the Japanese website

Sony Xperia X is expected to release in Europe, US and select parts of Asia. Many technology websites believe that Xperia X is an international variant of Xperia Z (Sony Yuga) owing to reports that suggest the release of Xperia Z in only the Asian market.
