Believed to make its first public appearance at either the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show or Mobile World Congress 2013, a new report indicates Odin may arrive in the U.S. under a different name.
Regardless of where or when Odin arrives, Sony is apparently planning to dub the phone the Xperia X in the States.
Additionally, the phone will be redubbed the Xperia Z in Japan, where it was previously known as the Yuga.
Both of the Xperia models are believed to be virtually identical, save for a few key components related to the smartphone's network connectivity in the U.S. or internationally.
Even though Odin may be going through a bit of an identity crisis, at heart it's still the same powerhouse machine.
The Xperia X is said to run Android 4.1: Jelly Bean, with a 1.5Ghz Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor running the show.
More importantly, the Xperia X is said to include a 5-inch 1080p HD WhiteMagic screen, powered by the Sony Bravia engine.
Not only would those specs go a long way in helping the Xperia X go toe-to-toe with the LG Optimus G and the Nexus 4, but it could also help Sony meet its ambitious goal of selling 50 million smartphones during the next fiscal year.
