Leaked photos of Sony's 5-inch 'Yuga' smartphone After weeks of rumors, we may have some definitive proof of Sony's new flagship.
The company's upcoming 'Yuga,' will feature a 5-inch screen and compete with Samsung's market leading Galaxy Note and Note II and HTC's new Droid DNA.

If accurate, the alleged specs of the Yuga are a 5-inch display with 1794 x 1080 resolution "due to the on-screen Android 4.1 Jelly Bean navigation buttons." The phone will be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon S4 at 1.5GHz, include 2GB RAM and have a 12MP rear camera.

On the looks side, the device appears to be thinner than Sony's usual Xperia devices, and may also include a nice brushed aluminum design.

Tacky chrome-coloured power button that doesn't even appear to sit flush to the side of the case?

Agreed the chrome button looks a bit naff, although the side power button on the S3 is also raised.

Personally i would prefer if they were to put them back on the top to prevent pocket wake ups, however with a 4.5"+ it does make it easier to reach the button one handed.

Meh looks fine to me... Definitely not tacky at least.

Of course it is subjective, but chrome equals tacky.
