Upcoming Sony Xperia D5103 appears in benchmarks, with specs close to the Moto G
An upcoming Sony Xperia, codenamed D5103, has been unearthed in the GFX Benchmark database, and the specs are very similar to what the Moto G offers, for example.

The midranger will offer a 720p HD display, powered by a 1.4 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, which is clocked a tad faster than the 1.2 GHz one on the G. It will apparently also run the latest Android 4.4 KitKat, so there's a chance we will see it announced at Sony's MWC event, alongside the Sirius flagship.

We are yet to hear about the screen size, camera, battery capacity and design choices, but we are sure these won't be far behind in terms of leaks before the official unveiling. Sony ditched its Vaio computer line to focus on phones, tablets and TVs, so a lot of handsets like this one might be in store from it this year, we'll just have to wait and see how Sony plans to differentiate them from the pack.

Yeah right. There's no way Sony will undercut the price on the $199 16GB G. I'm amazed the Zenfones are going to be priced so affordable. So far the Asus Zenfone 5 and 6 are the only phones I'm interested in in this budget segment. Well I guess some of the BLU phones also seem very appealing. But I'm keeping an eye out for a Zenfone 6.

it'll be better than the Motorola G if sony will give out constant FW updates for it just like the moto g at a lower or equivalent price point to the moto g

Out of all the OEMs presenting in MWC, Sony is what I'm most excited about. That's just me.

Before people start crying about it being more expensive than the Motorola G, remember, Sony's purpose isn't to commoditize the market. It won't make money via advertisements and play store revenue cuts, so you won't get a ridiculously low price here. What you will get though is a ridiculously nice design, build quality, UI with genuine improvements over stock whilst remaining slick and even more classy, and great optimisation amongst other things.

Sony will have to price it competitively at the same level of Moto G in order to get huge sales.

Hope that it's gonna rule like SP...

Yeah, the SP was probably the best mid-ranger of last year IMO.

I guess this will be the year of powerful budget phones.

This should be the successor of Xperia M/L. It should have a 'Quality 8MP camera' and a design similar to T2 Ultra and the thickness should be no more then 8.5MM. This phone should sell for 200-300$

Thickness no more than 8.5mm? Wrong price segment, dude
