I do not see any reason to release another quad core krait phone since I believe before summer 2013 GS4 will be released with a15 cpu architecture, which means any quad core krait phone released early 2013 will soon be forgotten, would be preferable just to wait a bit and release a phone with a15 architecture instead of everyone rushing to release a quad core krait.

They meant that it will rival the next year's Galaxy S and iPhone gen. He didn't mentioned from next year because they aren't existent now...

Sony have made some great strides in the smartphone arena. It is safe to assume that they will release something similar or better than the HTC butterfly J beast recently released. Are we all reading the same article?

By the time it arrives in the market, it would be competing with the GS4 and the next iPhone. :-) . Another market failure in the making.

They should make a phone which will be a direct rival to Galaxy SIV and Iphone 5S.
