Does Sony Have a 6.44-inch Smartphone in the Works?

Sony may be looking to take on Samsung’s successful Galaxy Note family of devices; a recent photo that was leaked in the Digi-Wo forums shows off a display that allegedly measures a massive 6.44-inches in size.

That seems just a hair too big for a smartphone but, then again, we said that about 5-inch screens just a few years ago. There isn’t an actual phone or tablet attached to the display to prove it, but the screen in the hand above apparently packs a full 1080p resolution.

We think it might be too early for Sony to unveil the device during next month’s Mobile World Congress show, especially since it just revealed the Xperia Z, but who knows? It’s also possible that Sony uses the display on a tablet or media player instead of a smartphone.
