Is this the new Sony flagship that "the rest of the world" is getting instead of the Xperia Z4?

Is this the new Sony flagship that
When the Sony Xperia Z4 was officially announced by Sony earlier this month, the manufacturer said that the model was being sold in Japan only. Almost immediately, rumors started flying about another flagship phone that Sony is going to produce for the rest of the world. The company is supposed to unveil this second flagship at the end of next month.

Today, a leak has possibly revealed the name, design and specs of this phone. The schematics of a device called the Sony Xperia P2 were posted on a Chinese website showing a different design than previous Xperia flagship models. The TRILUMINOS Display (IPS) screen weighs in at 5.2-inches with a 1080 x 1920 resolution (FHD). Under the hood is the 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage inside. The rear-facing camera is 12MP and includes a Sony 25mm F2 G OSS Lens (ISO 64-25600) with 4K video recording. The front-facing camera is a 5.1MP shooter. A nice sized 4240mAh battery is onboard and the thickness of the phone ranges from 8.9mm at the thinnest, to 10.9mm at the thickest.

Will this be the Sony flagship model that the rest of the world gets while the Japanese are offered the Xperia Z4? One thing for sure, this model should provide longer battery life than even the Motorola DROID Turbo and its 3900mAh battery offers. If this model is indeed being prepped for a May unveiling, there should be more leaks about it on the way.

For now, you should definitely head over to the spice rack and take this story with a grain of salt.

Don't think this is the next flagship phone of Sony. Just waiting for till they announce it.

12MP on a 2015 flagship phone? I dont think so either.. Plus, it doesn't sport the aluminum round power button. The design looks rather dated. It just might be an iteration of the old Xperia P. Hence, the name "P2". http://cdn2.gsmarena.com/vv/pics/sony/sony-xperia-p-silver.jpg

iPhone has 8MP, say what You want but its camera is pretty good, maybe not the best, but what I wanna say is that resolution means nothing, Z series has 20MP and they all take really crappy photos and Sony is not able to change it for 2.5 years now. Sometimes less pixels on bigger matrix is much better than 20MP on small, look at Lumias, now they pack 20MP instead of 41 and still photos are outstanding.

You are mistaken. The 20mp on de z series isn't tested at 20mp its tested at 8mp because superior auto is only capable of that. But the camera in manual mode is better than the one in the iphone but that still isn't good enough as allot of people only know how to use the auto mode

One thing I find weird is everyone praised the Lumia's 930's camera and have bashed the M9's camera (although after the software updates many blogs have changed their opinion) when the 930 and M9 use the exact same 20mp Toshiba Sensor.

Nuh i'll be okay with 12 MP. Most pictures I have taken are picture of my cats and dog..... So the Z2's 20MP camera is totally wasted on me. But that over 4000mAh battery is what will shine in a smartphone. With Sony's good power management, that phone will run 2 full days with medium usage

Megapixels don't matter dumbass. The sensor is much more important than megapixels. an 8 megapixel camera can take better shots than a 16MP camera if the sensor on the 8 is better. That's just a fact. Try learning about photography. Megapixels are last on the list of what's important.

Yeah? To a pro such as you, no it wouldn't. But for the rest of the non-pros out there (who are definitely less knowledgeable than you) that makes up most of the market, who only looks at specs, MP count definitely matters.. Tell me, do you think Sony will just let other brands use their 20MP camera modules while their "flagship" will only sport 12MP? Yeah, dumbass, I don't think so either!

Ill exchange thickness for a longer battery life rather than to be an outlet hugger.

Yeah, me too, but hope, it'll be not that thick, 7-8mm maybe

I'm not sure people get how small those bezels are. That's basically 80% screen real estate. That's crazy.

80.2%. That almost beats out the Sharp Aquos Xx 302Sh which is at 80.66%(highest ratio I've seen)

OSS is Sony terms for OIS! :D SO DEM SPECS LOOKS AWESOME! I hope it's the truth!!! :D

I just hope OSS stands for Optical Steady Shot which they use in their dslrs and compact cams :)

Design reminds me of Xperia S with much less bezels. I don't think hey will make a flagship phone with 10.9 mm thickness. and also is that a lanyard on the bottom part of the phone in side view ?

they made Xperia P as a midrange of Xperia S. This rumor means that the Xperia P2 is not the flagship otherwise they would cell it Xperia S2 or Xperia S(a letter like XperiaSL or Xperia SP)

Exactly.. the design is very similar to Xperia U,P and S.. but the specs are very much flagship like.

68. An.Awesome.Guy

I was wrong in my first reply because they have Xperia T3 which isn't a flagship,so yeah they could name it S2 whether it was flagship or midrange and the specs are more similar to Xperia S than P. Xperia S had a 12MP camera and is 10.6 mm thick, also it is more known. You can see comment 30 and my reply to it below as more points why it should be fake is mentioned.

This just looks like an Xperia S to me..

Looks like it's time for Sony to stick with gaming industry.

Lol 10.9mm. That is more of a brick than Nokia. The Z3's 7.9mm and 3000 mah is fine.

I thought people are fine with thick phones as long as it has a big-ass battery capacity. People are hypocrites

23. singhkaran9830 unregistered

8-8.5 mm is fine.Not more than that.
