Compare the Sony D6503 Sirius to the Sony Xperia Z1 and Sony Xperia Z
These past few days have revealed a number of screenshots rumored to belong to the Sony D6503 Sirius. Now, our attention shifts to leaked photos of the device itself, revealing how the eagerly awaited handset model looks in black and white. Another picture shows the Sony D6503 Sirius side-by-side with the Sony Xperia Z1 and the Sony Xperia Z. This picture could be captioned "The last three flagship Android phones from Sony".

As it turns out, the tipster who is behind the leaked photos says that the Sony D6503 Sirius is indeed the Sony Xperia Z2, making it a flagship model and a sequel to the Xperia Z1. According to the tipster, the phone will be released in April and will no longer include the printing of the Sony name on shatterproof film.

Also coming at the same time as the Xperia Z2 will be the Sony DGP521, which is a new flagship tablet allegedly being released by the Japanese manufacturer.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

I can't really tell if the bezels have even gotten any narrower. I think the sides were trimmed a tiny bit, but the bottom still looks fat @_@ *especially for no capacitive buttons, logo, or physical buttons.

Maybe the bottom has the beautiful LED strip light.

DUDE, the Z2 includes STEREO SPEAKERS WITH SOUND BOOST. the top and bottom bezel are NOT wasted. and it's water and dust proof phone with wooping 20 mp camera and HUGE battery. have mercy on the designers. PLUS, sony are in favor of a thin profile.

Good points, also the camera is 1/2.4" which is much bigger than the other flagships which use 1/3.2" (except Nokia and the Moto X). But I personally would prefer for the Z2 to be a couple mm thinner if it allow them to make it a couple cm shorter.

Well, it's a matter of taste. sony think that more consumers will be attracted to thinner profile and taller phone then shorter phone and thicker profile. they are always proud of how relatively slim their high end phones are considering what's inside. but taller phone i think also gives them more space to add the stereo speakers. look at how big htc one bezel is.

I'm usually not one to complain when it comes to bezels, but I hope this new speaker will be able to compare with the HTC One's boom speakers otherwise I would have hoped for some design improvements. Either way, bezels aren't my sales point so I'll love it either way.

Their high end phones are becoming clunky. Xperia Z was much much better than the Z1, visually. Xperia ZL was an achievement.

I hope this is not the Z2, it looks almost exactly like the Z1 and just a tad bit taller. If this is really the Z2, then I'm a bit disappointed.

Its the apple trend that works well, samsung did it, looks like HTC is goin with it with HTC ONE 2.

The top and bottom bezels are too wide making the phone too tall for a 5.2 screen. It seems to have the same dimensions as the Note 3.

The only thing i've ever disliked from Sony's flagship were those bezels.

LG really dropped the ball with the G2 by using the back buttons and going for 5.2 screen instead of a 5 inch one. It is too big. The Optimus G literally had no downsides compared to the One X and GS3. It was more compact, way more powerful, looked more elegant etc. The G2 is bigger and chunkier than the GS4 and HTC One and it's uglier to boot. Now it looks like Sony is doing the same thing. The Xperia Z was is much sexier than their later designs and that was already too big. Going even bigger is just suicide.
