Sony Xperia Z with Snapdragon 800 CPU in works?

Looks like Sony is gearing towards updating its Xperia Z smartphone by replacing the built-in Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU with a more powerful Snapdragon 800 unit.

The information comes from highly-informed Eldar Murtazin who claims he managed to play with such a device, adding that the unit he tested also comes with a fancy Super LCD3 touchscreen, which is used in the HTC One. However, what Eldar got was a prototype unit and the final model may actually have a worse display.

It is said that Sony may launch the updated Xperia Z later this year, helping the Japanese company stay relevant in the mobile game while providing a solid (and water-proof) alternative to the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4. Speaking of Galaxy S4, it may also get Snapdragon 800 at some point in the second half of 2013

    Sony needs something like this to stay relevant. And this could be one of the best high-end smartphones around. Cause it’s water proof.

    Would it be asking to much for this to be the version of the xperia z that t-mo is getting…wishful thinking I guess..they have stalled it for so long they could atleast do that…
