Btw, Htc butterfly(international version of DNA) has microSD support....
This phone design sucks and has a glass back cover(very fragile look at iPhone 4S) while HTC M7 will have a complete aluminium unibody...

The HTC Droid DNA will not get anywhere close to this the Yuga has 32GB storage plus an SD card slot the DNA only has 16GB storage and no SD card slot the Yuga will also be water and dust proof and the 1080p display will also use WhiteMagic technology with Sony's sensor on lens tech too one other thing the camera will use the Exmor RS sensor that also supports full HD, HDR video recording the only thing the HTC might have over the Sony is the Beats brand name thats about it but Sony can always push the Walkman brand which has done wonders with the old Walkman range (it was Sony Ericsson's most popular mobile brand) any one agree or disagree

Sony xperia yuga will be a flop because
1)of outdated hardware(qualcomm chipset,using tft for 1080p ,RAM,1+ ghz processor)
2)Sony is scared of market share
3)The present Sony xperia mobile software is poor,although it's derived from android.
4)Main problem in sony phones is lagging and poor performance.
5)Qualcomm chipset is outdated,tft technology is outdated etc

I have just seen those 2 pictures of this mobile and they look good but what I really wish this phone would have is at least 12 MP camera, a very good loud speaker because sony makes a poor loudspeakers compare to nokia or samsung even Htc have a better loudspeakers than sony, and also NFC cant be missed and HDMI port and atleast 2GB of ram and 2 ghz processor or dual core 1.5

so please Sony make this real.

Sony phones will be flop unless and until they change their processors, chip sets,and hardware configurations.Although i am a Sony fan.Their phones are not up to the present market level.They are giving old engine in a new car.They should outsource mobile software development to western countries as eastern countries(japan,china, Korea) are poor in software development.In hardware it's vice-versa. Sony can beat the present top companies(samsung,apple) if they
1)Give new technology embedded advanced processors, chip sets and hardware configurations in all xperia mobiles.Presently they are giving outdated hardware(ex.qualcomm chipset,tft display etc)even for high price.
2)outsource their mobile software to a very good western company.As the software in present phones have lot of issues
3)don't hurry up releasing phones,as they release one in a month.Instead they should work patiently and efficiently to release a model,which beats every other phone in market.

Okay...it has all the whistles and bells that one geek could want in a phone.
But one true question is...how fast could Sony can make this readily available in the market? This is where Sony, even on SonyEricsson days where they release a phone way too behind the competition. Hope Sony changes all that. But, we don't want a rushed product either.

Looks alright, but no matter how great the phone is, if they don't get the phone out to carriers or spend money to advertise it, it will go nowhere. Maybe it will do good in japan and with tech ppl but other than that I don't know.

They need to bring something new, not just 1080p.

Good luck to them.

hey gsmarena take a little look at specs.... yeah before Sony is testing Xperia Yuga with Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro but Sony feel not good enough so they change to Samsung Exynos 5 Quad ( not yet test or being test now ) which mean this could be a test product not a confirmed one. Eldar Murtazin might hold this test product too :)

I prefer Xperia V: Arc design and water proof. I'll be using it only for call, SMS and net anyway so design is as important as its functions, at least to me.
