You've seen the leaked specs, now take a gander at what is being called the Sony Xperia Z2
Sony has certainly caught our attention with a number of high-end Android phones. Ever since the Japanese OEM divorced Ericsson, it seems to have put models like Sony Ericsson Xperia Play behind it. The Sony Xperia Z caught everyone's attention this past January at CES and it followed that up with the Sony Xperia Z Ultra phablet and the camera-centric Sony Xperia Z1.

The other day, we heard some speculation about an upcoming Sony Xperia Z2, rumored to be seeing the light of day this coming January at CES 2014 in Las Vegas. The phone is expected to carry a 5.5 inch IGZO, Triluminos screen with a 540ppi pixel density. A quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU will be under the hood and 3GB of RAM will be included. On the back of the phone you will find a 20.7MP rear-facing snapper with a Xenon flash. The 3500mAh cell keeps the lights on and pre-installed out of the box will be Android 4.4 KitKat.

The picture below is alleged to be that of the Sony Xperia Z2. The phone looks like the Sony Xperia Z but with a larger screen. The handset still looks pretty slim. If the Xperia Z2 is to be revealed during CES 2014, expect to see some more leaks of the device soon. The model number is the C770X and the code name of the unit is "Avatar".

UPDATE: One of our loyal readers, apparently with connections to this device, tells us that the picture does not represent the Sony Xperia Z2. In addition, our source tells us that the device will be outed in March and April. Sony will no longer introduce new flagship devices at CES, says our tipster.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

Whatever this thing is, it's crazy thin and a removable back cover?

And there I was thinking most people on this site had a brain.......might have to re-think that one! These are rumours, nailed in the same article by their anonymous tipster, by the way! Sony releases 2 top end devices (not including tablets/phablets) which means their next release should be around March. I was not sure I would get the Z1 but realise I miss my XZ way too much and upon seeing the Z1 in the metal/glass, it was love at first sight! It is on the way to be delivered tomorrow by Carphonewarehouse........Haters are always gonna hate but take off those blinkers and recognise true excellence! Nice job Sony!!

540 PPI at 5.5 inches would require a resolution above WQHD (2560x1440), which ain't happening. Good try though.

Sony build for phone seem great! Was hard to decide between Z Ultra and Note 3 till turn the Z Ultra over, Sony has forgotten to include a led flash for their Z Ultra. LED flash is important for close night shot like car number plate in accident.

That's cool, but till CES 2014 another version of Android would come so please install that in this and try to upgrade your devices faster Sony. And I want capacitive buttons not virtual buttons coz there's so much space left below.

So, the Z1 was so underwhelming they need an almost-immediate Z2?

everything that force sony to "leaked" the z2 already.. what else reason do you need??

32. kobainez

Posts: 454; Member since: Apr 13, 2012

That's a stupid reason if u asked me. The Xperia Yuga aka Z specs was leaked the time when xperia s was released so what's your point?

34. maccess

Posts: 742; Member since: Jan 16, 2013

considering this leaked not just the spec but the phone itself.. don't you think it's to early?? and hey the z1 isn't released yet.. you got my point??

35. maccess

Posts: 742; Member since: Jan 16, 2013

one more think to ask you have you ever seen gs4 leaked even before the gs3 was released.. or htc one leaked even before the one x has been released?? hope you understand my point.. sony will kill the z1 potential buyers if these leaked keep happening.. *this post for comment 32*
