Sony CVP Of Sales Asserts A New Flagship Phone Designed To Compete With The iPhone 5 And Galaxy S III Is On The Way

 

Sony appears to have some big time ambitions for 2013. According to a Financial Times Deutschland interview, Dennis van Schie who is the CVP of Sales & Marketing asserts that Sony clearly intends on having a flagship that will outdo the likes of both the iPhone 5 and even the Galaxy S III. He asserts Sony “will create in the near future a flagship model that can compete with Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy S III“. This device will likely have current flagship models like the Xperia Ion variant and Xperia TL pale in comparison to this new and upcoming device. Rumor has it that the device will remain on the cutting edge side of things by featuring a Snapdragon quad-core processor, a 5-inch 1080p screen and perhaps a 12MP camera.

Naturally it sucks that owners who purchased a variant of the Xperia Ion and Xperia TL will have to cope with the fact their device is going to be all but forgotten take a backseat to another flagship device instead. On the other hand, it sure is exciting to see yet another 1080p phone on the horizon, isn’t it? Expect to see more details leak out as we possibly see the introduction of the device at the start of 2013.

    It seems to me that Sony’s problem is that they always release the flagship phone later than the competition – usually around 2-5 months later, and then what happens is they are leapfrogged almost immediately afterward. Even the Xperia T isn’t available locally for me yet and it already starts off with specs that can just barely keep up with the Galaxy SIII and HTC One X and Android 4.0.4. I’m still keen to play with the Xperia T, if only to see the build quality and feel of the phone.
