Photos show Sony Xperia Z1 and D6503 side by side
The air is all full of Sony these days. Can you feel it? No sooner did the Sony Xperia Z1S finally get unveiled along with the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact at CES, than out pops the Sony D6503, which some are calling a refresh to the Xperia Z1. Others believe that this model is the Sony Xperia Z2, the new flagship handset for the Japanese manufacturer.

The situation is in flux, but right this second we expect the D6503to feature a 5.2 inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. A quad-core Snapdragon 800  MSM8974AB processor is under the hood, supporting 4k video playback. There is 3GB of RAM inside with 16GB of native storage on board. Android 4.4.2 is pre-installed out of the box.

We have some side-by-side pictures to show you that reveal the difference between the Sony Xperia Z1 and the Sony D6503. The latter is a bigger device with a larger screen and larger dimensions, while the positions of some of the ports are different. The speakers are also placed in different locations.

The Sony D6503, aka Sirius, is a beast regardless of whether it is merely a Z1 refresh, the Xperia Z2 or some other device. Check out how the model compares to the Sony Xperia Z1 in the slide show below.
