Unannounced Sony Xperia G to have a 4.8-inch display, might not be waterproof
posted by Florin T. / Feb 14, 2014, 4:59 PM
Spotted earlier today in a leaked photo, the alleged Sony Xperia G appeared in another image now, this time allowing us to see a bit more of its rear. To be clear, the handset sitting on top is the Sony Xperia Z1. So the Xperia G - assuming that this is its real name - has a camera (with LED flash) positioned in the middle of its back case.
According to @ViziLeaks, the Xperia G is part of a new D-series from Sony. Reportedly, the handset features a 4.8 inch display, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal memory. The rear camera should be an 8MP one. Unlike Sony’s latest high-end smartphones, the Xperia G doesn’t seem to be waterproof.
The Xperia G could be the Sony D5103 that we saw in a benchmark test yesterday. If that is true, it will run Android 4.4 KitKat, being powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor. Also, its 4.8 inch display should have a 720 x 1280 pixel resolution.
Sony confirmed that it would host a press event on February 24 at MWC, so perhaps it will announce the Xperia G then - alongside the high-end Xperia D6503 "Sirius."

I kinda like the camera placement on the center of the phone. Thought at first the back panel is made out of matte material but it's also made out of glass. Nice hardware for a mid-range. Sony is really stepping up this time.

Do people really care if the phone is waterproof or not? Are we talking showers with our phones?

Each phone has its own advantages and disadvantages. For some people viewing angles are important but I'm sure most people will not have a problem with Xperia SP screen. Because smartphone is a very personal device in fact some people will use a Anti-Spy privacy screen protector and the screen has a good quality.http://mobiltelefon.ru/i/other

Its the successor of the Sony Xperia SP maybe? But why a quad core 1.4Ghz,like in the Moto G,not a dual core krait 1.7Ghz,in the Xperia SP, when that dual core krait is better than that quad core crap... Sony..impress me more.

Sorry dude but durability is much more important than something useless like "ultra thin bezels" That's why most of us use protective cases. Thanks to waterproofing you can bring your phone to any place without worrying about your phone will be damaged because of water or without having to use some bulky and expensive protective cases that will make your phone bigger and thicker. Its not hard to make bezelless smartphone from a flimsy and thin plastics even some chinese manufacturers is able to do that.
