At CES Sony unveiled their flagship model for 2013, the suped-up Xperia Z. A new leak gives us a glimpse of where the company is headed when they unveil the mid-range devices that will take their design cues from that handset. Seen here is the Sony C5303 HuaShan (a codename, obviously).
The phone borrows the circular power on/off/standby button first seen on the Xperia Z and Xperia ZL and carrier the same clean, elegant look. Benchmarks for the device proclaim an HD display, and the ‘About phone’ screen shows Android 4.1.2. A 1.7GHz Qualcomm MSM8960T powers a version of the phone that appears destined for China.
Mobile World Congress seems the logical place to unveil this device. The biggest question remaining? Which letter of the alphabet will follow Xperia when the phone is officially announced?
