Sony Yuga has been hitting the headlines in recent times. The long expected device has popped up once again on Nenamark 2 benchmark results, according to The Android Soul.

The benchmark suggests the device running Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean) scores 59.90. Yuga is said to be powered by a Qualcomm Adreno TM 320 graphics processing unit clocked at 1.5GHz. The device could have a display packing a resolution of 1794 x 1080 pixels.

The device had appeared in the Nenamark benchmark a month ago in October, which scored 59.70. The benchmark that shows up reveals the device would feature a display which would have the horizontal pixels reserved for onscreen navigation buttons.

In terms of specs, Yuga could sport a 5in display, 2GB of RAM, a 16 megapixel rear-facing camera with Exmor R CMOS sensor, 32GB of internal storage and a micro SD card slot and 2500mAh or 2800mAh battery. The device is expected to be released in the first quarter in 2013 as Sony's next flagship smartphone.

"While the said presence of a microSD card slot may rule out the Nexus angle, the rest of the numbers do seem quite impressive, and we would love to see something like this from Sony, which has typically not been able to overtake the likes of Samsung despite some excellent products in its Xperia lineup," explains The Android Soul.

Yuga is speculated to come alongside two other Sony smartphones - Odin and Dogo. Dogo is expected to be announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013, while Odin and Yuga are expected to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event 2013. According to reports, Yuga is said to be identical to Odin but may be a variant for a different carrier.

Only a few months are left for major events: CES will be held in Las Vegas from 8-11 January 2013, while the MWC has been scheduled for 25-28 February 2013 in Barcelona.
