Sony's Xperia Yuga concept phone has already appeared in leaked images this month but more official looking pictures have now emerged which offer a look at a much better looking device. The Yuga has been rumoured for a little while now and appears to be Sony's contribution to high-end phablet wagon that's gradually getting more full.

Sony appears to be putting a lot of effort into making its phablet standout. The concept supposedly features a 5" FHD IPS+ LED backlit TFT screen powered by Sony's Mobile Bravia engine and White Magic technology. In addition to this it has a resolution of 1080 x 1920, a pixel density of 441ppi and a protective layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 2.

Inside the handset there's said to be a 1.7GHz quad-core processor backed up by 2GB of RAM and an Adreno 320GPU. It's also expected to be packing 32GB of internal storage (with a microSD slot for expansion), a 13mp camera on the rear, a 2mp camera on the front and Android 4.2 installed right out of the box.

The specs are more or less inline with previous rumours although the processor in the details leaked this time is slightly faster, and the camera a higher resolution. It's believed that the Yuga will be joined by a device with similar looks, though slightly smaller, and similar specs called the Odin.

While Sony's Xperia devices in 2012 have been a good looking and reasonably well spec'd bunch the range hasn't delivered anything that really stands out compared to the competition. The Yuga could be that device offering an attractive design and some specs which promise to give the likes of the Galaxy Note II a run for their money.

Unfortunately it's just a concept at the moment and there's no indication of when Sony might put it into production. Given its similar specs to the rumoured Galaxy S IV and LG Optimus G2 it would be smart to release it earlier in the year, as it has all the ingredients to be a worthy rival.
