As well as NFC.

You're right. No HSPA+ , no NFC , no 32GB option, no LTE (4G) . The ZL is just better.

Well let's just hope than both will ba available globally.
It may also just mean both will be positioned differently, it would make sense.

The only problem now though is that a 5" screen phone might be too big to hold one-handed when making a call, and also to fit in your pocket as well: http://www.androidcentral.com/5-inch...ant-could-love What do you think??

What? HSPA is pretty much a standard for cellular data, arguably so is LTE, so why wouldn't Sony put it in their phones? Spectre said both phones should have LTE. Undoubtedly they should also be compatible with HSPA as well since only a handful of countries support LTE and HSPA is, like I said, a standard nowadays.

The GSM Arena stats aren't official; we can't rely on them yet.

Despite that, I still don't see any reason to doubt the GSMarena specs, although it will all be clear when Sony Officially state the specs at the CES 2013 show. What about my question in: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=243 ?

Looks like this year's flagships will have 5" screen. Those phones are getting too big IMO and unfortunately they doesnt offer top hardware in smaller packages (with smaller screen). Screen size should be max 4.7" - 4.8" IMO.

Do you think the specs of the Xperia V are still good in comparison to those of the Odin and the Yuga then?

The Xperia V has very respectable specs in my opinion. Nothing bad about the phone really. And the screen size is small enough to be held easily and to fit in a pocket. The original Xperia arc has a similar screen size and it feels great to hold and pocket.

According to a couple of friends at Sony Mobile they will push Yuga as the flagship to begin with. Odin is harder to produce because of the size. Yuga set to be on sale mid feb with Odin a little later in march....
