Sony has been known to make smartphones with desirable chassis for a while now. The Xperia Z and the Z1 were both brilliant phones and perhaps the only thing that really pulled them down from being a downright success were issues related to the software or updates. Both the devices were drop dead gorgeous in the same breath as the likes of HTC One and the iPhone 4/5.
Buoyed by the success of these two devices, Sony has been working on a successor to the Xperia Z1. There have been leaked images and rumours about the device for a while in the ever expanding gossip columns of consumer technology. However, with MWC literally days away, the news about a potential successor to the Honami is getting stringently more definite. The device, codenamed ‘Sirius’ has now been leaked out on what is a rather detailed 12 minute video on Youtube by Rimas Flyil. The poster has gone on to label the model number of the device as D6503- Sirius giving it an evidence that this indeed is the final device.
On the first look, the device looks similar to the Xperia Z1 and sports the same 20.1 MP Camera which is able to shoot in 4:3 AR. Not just this, you can also reduce the count to 15.5 MP to shoot in a 16:9 AR. Most notable hardware changes from looking at the video has been the shifting of security latch to the opposite side as seen on the Z1, the Camera Shutter key being slightly enlarged and also the left side of the phone is covered by a single door.
The icons from the first look give impressions of KitKat running on the device, giving an indication that the device will run KitKat right out of the box. Not just this, there is new boot animation as well as wallpapers on the device. With such a detailed video leaked out, you got to believe that the phone is very close to being put final touches on and there certainly would not be any better place than MWC for the device to be unveiled.
