Dual-core Krait Processors are known to give tough competition to the existing quad cores (exynos 4412, Tegra 3). And if rumours are to be believed they are unveiling their quad core phones codenamed "Odin" & "Yuga" in CES 2013.

Xperia T = 4.55"/ 1.5 Ghz Krait/ 13 MP cam (upgraded Ion which had 1.5 Ghz Scorpion/ 12 MP cam)
Xperia V = 4.3" / 1.5 Ghz Krait/ 13 MP cam [(dust & water proof, BT 4.0, HDR, Superior Auto, Mobile Bravia Engine 2,Clear Audio+) upgraded Acro S which had 1.5 Ghz Scorpion/ 12 MP cam without the dedicated cam button]

And NO 2 PHONES are the SAME -.-

Look at Sony Cybershot - one design is used for different models - with different feature sets.

Look at Sony Bravia (and even the Trinitron before), same box, same main design - different features.

Look at Sony optical drives, walkmans, clock-radios, etc. even simple earphones - one design is used with many little differences.

Yet, they can do it and they can support all their products.

Why? Because they can already (after Ericsson left) - Sony is a sleeping dragon, they are Japan's equivalent to Korea's Samsung. They can come up with all models and they can support it. It's the same with all their other appliances - almost same specs but different features. And they were successful! :)

Remember the automobile Ford Model T "You can have it any color, as long as it's black."? Well, look now at how many trims each model of each brand has, and that's not counting optional features.

They are not providing complete features in mid range phones.

I guess samsung have release Galaxy S Advance. that boasts all features is proper mid range phone rite now.

Im an HTC One X owner.

Does the Sony skin work well?
Sense is very laggy and I'd like them to drop it or
slim it down.
