We were wondering what that round chrome button serves for in the last preview of the phone that appeared, and now we have our answer - it is the power/lock key, ergonomically situated right under your thumb.
The rest of the specs get reconfirmed by this latest leak, too - 5" Full HD Mobile BRAVIA screen, quad-core S4 Pro, 13 MP Exmor RS camera, and Asahi Dragontrail glass body. Now the only thing to wait for is the actual unveiling an hour from now.

- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, Quad-core, 1500 MHz

I hate to say it, but this is the first time since the Sony Ericsson P990 that I've wanted to buy a Sony phone... I still reckon this was a failed Nexus phone. I just hope Sony back it up with proper update support (has been an absolute fail in the past) and an unlocked bootloader.

The button has a circular look to it. I'm pretty sure Apple will sue for that. It also has a similar shape.

nothing new in the design at all...the email sent out about "The Extraordinary Is Coming" must have something to do with a feature on the Sony Software or camera capabilities. other than that this design is not extraordinary by any mean it's looks nice just not to that exaggerated word at all..just saying

A thing of beauty......I absolutely have to have one of these babies Z or ZL choose your poison. I believe someone asked the question as to where is the Extraordinary in this? I suggest you get a new pair of glasses as you will be hard pushed to find a more beautifully designed handset than this.
