Rumors on the next Sony flagship smartphone leaked for the first time a few weeks ago. Some of these rumors claimed the device, codenamed Sirius, will be officially unveiled at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014 trade fair, which has just closed its gates last week.Other reports have been surfacing on the Xperia Z1 sequel, which Sony is now readying for the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014.
Even though they haven't been completely accurate, all rumors have something in common and that's the fact that the leaked specs for the Sony Sirius perfectly matches those of the Xperia Z2.
Keep in mind though these speculations are based on “sources in the industry” and should be taken with a grain of salt until further notice.
Blog site AndroidSAS claims that according to its own source Sony Sirius is in fact the codename for the Xperia Z2, the Sony Xperia Z1 spiritual successor.
The next flagship smartphone to be launched by the Japanese handset maker will be announced late next month at MWC 2014 and there's no doubt about it.
For those unfamiliar with the rumors surrounding Sony Sirius and Xperia Z2, the sequel to Sony's flagship handset is said to boast a stunning 5.2-inch display that supports 2K (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution.
In addition, we also know it will sport at least a 20.7-inch rear-facing camera featuring Sony's latest imaging technology. Obviously, a secondary camera will be included as well.
It's also rumored the Xperia Z2 will be water resistant and will feature a super sleek form factor, just like its predecessor. Last but not least, the smartphone will be packed by a high-capacity 3700 mAh battery, which will surely be more than enough to power the vibrant display.
Unfortunately, word is the smartphone will be equipped with the MSM8974AB Snpadragon 800 chipset, but we hope Sony will choose Qualcomm's Snapdragon 805 processor instead. Stay tuned for more updates on Sony's upcoming flagship smartphone.
