Sony Sirius
Those rumors just keep on coming and the latest one is brought to us courtesy of @evleaks. According to his sources, Sony is working on its new flagship smartphone dubbed Sirius (just a codename, most likely). If the name seems familiar, that's because it got thrown on the table by a previous leak.

The Sony Sirius will be one capable device if its hardware specs turn out to be correct. It is believed that the phone will be powered by Qualcomm's MSM8974AB SoC, which is a faster variant of the Snapdragon 800 offering higher clock speeds and other goodies. A 5.2-inch display has allegedly been chosen for this device, yet we have no clue what kind of display tech will be implemented this time. As a reminder, the company's current flagship – the Xperia Z1 – has a 5-inch Triluminos screen. 

It is worth noting that the Sony Sirius could launch with Verizon in the US, according to the source. In other words, it may become the very first Sony smartphone released by Big Red in the States.

If this Sony Sirius is to be made official in the near future, then we'll most likely get to see it as soon as next month. The phone is expected to be announced at the MWC expo in Barcelona, which is scheduled to begin on February 24.
