Some Sony Xperia Sirius D6503 features apparently confirmed, UI screenshots revealed
Sony’s unannounced D6503 appeared in some leaked photos over the weekend, this suggesting that the Japanese company may officially unveil the smartphone soon.

Today, XperiaBlog reportedly confirmed some of the features of the upcoming handset, also noting that this is the same device previously rumored to be codenamed Xperia Sirius. According to the blog, it’s been confirmed that the D6503 / Sirius features: a 5.2-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 MSM-8974-AB processor (which may also be included in HTC’s rumored One+ / M8), Adreno 330 GPU, 3GB of RAM, a 20.7MP rear camera, and a 2.1MP camera on the front.

We still don’t know if the D6503 / Sirius will be called Xperia Z2. Sony might announce the new handset at MWC next month, possibly alongside the 5-inch Xperia Canopus.

Some screenshots allegedly presenting the UI of the D6503 were posted by XperiaBlog, as well as in a thread at the XDA Developers forum. It’s said that the screenshots date from November 2013 - that’s why they show Android 4.3 Jelly Bean running on the device. But the handset should run Android 4.4.2 KitKat at launch, so the UI will be different. You can see the screenshots below.

4.9" + On-screen buttons = 5.2"

Needs a great display, longer lasting battery, sharpen up on camera quality and this thing should be excellent!

I wonder if any U.S. carriers will actually carry the device this time? I really do hope so, because I will definitely be picking one of these bad boys up if it's running Kit Kat.

Would be fun though if OEMs added their own Easter Eggs on top of Google's

This should be ZL's successor judging from the model number (D6503), and the Z2 is (D6603).

I agree if this is the z2 then I'm disappointed u got lg and samsung readying 2k displays and more this can't be the flagship..

And whats the use of 2K display on a 5" display except for battery drainage? I think FHD is more than enough.

True. How can anyone justify the jump to 2K displays? Even if there is going to be some gain, it will be imperceptible. On the contrary the toll on performance and battery will be noticable. I'd have anytime a proportionally smaller, thinner battery module, than a 2K screen.

Android 4.4 + Xperia UI = Awesome experience.
