We’re just a couple of weeks from the annual Consumer Electronics Show where, apparently, we might have a chance to learn more about Sony’s first phablet, the Xperia Z. The device has also been referred to as the Yuga, its current codename.

According to¬†ePrice, Sony is gearing up to show the phone off to the world for the very first time, and could launch as soon as mid-January. We’re also hoping that a U.S. launch date is clarified, especially if the phone is indeed announced in the U.S.

Recent leaks have suggested the phone will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and wil.l feature a large 5-inch display with a 1080p resolution, 2GB of RAM, a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, a 12-megapixel camera, HDMI-out and more. The phone will also allegedly be resistant to both water and dust.

Are you ready for Sony’s phablet? Do you think it will out-spec the similarly sized DROID DNA?
