A Russian technology website has leaked the features and specifications for what it says is the rumored Sony smartphone with a 5-inch screen.

The site Mobile-review.com on Wednesday posted a long article describing the phone along with dozens of photographs of the device.

The phone, which is expected to be called the Yuga, will have a full HD 1,920-by- 1,080-pixel resolution. It'll also have a 440 pixels-an-inch density that is comparable to that of the HTC Droid DNA, another 5-inch smartphone, according to Engadget, which reported the phone's details in English.

Inside, the Yuga will run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and use a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor.

Additionally, the report says the Yuga will have micro HDMI and USB host ports as well as a microSD card slot. The phone will have Near Field Communications technology and be enabled for high-speed LTE connection.

The Yuga will also have a 12-megapixel rear camera, according to the report.

If Sony does in fact announce a 5-inch phone, it'll be the latest company to jump into the jumbo phone market along with Samsung, HTC and LG.
