If someone asked you back in 2006 what’s a phablet? You’d think they’re talking in another language. Come 2013 and the 5″ mark is the new norm for smartphone devices.

Sony has joined the clan of 5″ display smartphones, Sony leaked a picture of its up and coming Xperia Z just days away from it’s announcement at CES. The Sony Xperia Z will enter the arena with other phones with 5” 1080p screens this year but it also puts Sony into the quad-core race with its Qualcomm APQ8064 Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset. The Z will come out with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at launch.
A 12MP camera will take your every day pictures. Priced at $655(-+R7500 in Vat) its set the bar pretty normal for the price.

Let’s hope that Sony will upgrade this device for the next 18months as Google set for its guideline.
