Information posted on the Digi-wo forum, including the image you see above, suggests Sony is working on an Android phablet of its own that could rival the 5.5-inch Samsung Galaxy Note II and 6.1-inch Huawei Ascend Mate. It may even rival the upcoming 6.3-inch Galaxy Note III. The photo, which looks like it was taken in an assembly line in a factory, shows what’s described as a 6.44-inch 1080p display with Sony branding. From our perspective, the front-facing camera placement and on-screen button design leads us to believe it will look like an over-sized Xperia Z smartphone. With Sharp’s 6.1-inch WQXGA 2560×1600 IGZO display prototype looming, I imagine the Xperia Phablet will debut as soon as late February at Mobile World Congress 2013, if it’s real, of course.
