Sony has officially unveiled the successor to the Xperia Z1 at the MWC 2014 event in Barcelona. The Sony Xperia Z2 design looks very similar to its older sibling but it is packed with a far more stronger hardware and software which makes it distinct from its predecessor.

by Robert Nazarian on
tagged , , ,


Last week, the upcoming Sony Xperia Z2 (D6503) showed up in its first video, and another one was just released showing off more details. This video emphasizes the camera and main interface. The Z2 is going to be a beast in terms of the camera as it can shoot 4K video, will include Timeshift effects such as slo-mo and high-speed, shoot cinemagraphs, duplicate moving objects, simulate bokeh, and scan documents to JPG/PDF.

You will also see a lot of the new features from the user interface, which include a new “simple” homscreen that shows bigger icons and larger text.  You will also see some motion gestures, custom sound settings, and so much more.

Hit the break for the full 12 minute video.

Sony Xperia Z2 tablet specs leak ahead of MWC

by Robert Nazarian on
tagged , ,


A couple of weeks ago, we told you about a new Sony tablet that showed up at the FCC. Now the specs leaked for what could be the same tablet, the Xperia Z2. According to @evleaks, it will have a 10.1-inch (1920 x 1200) Triluminos display, a 2.3GHz quad-core processor (most likely a Snapdragon), 3GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, microSD slot for expanded storage, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 6,000mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat. It’s also supposed to be only 6.4mm thick and waterproof.

Now the tablet we saw at the FCC has a different model number, TM-0043-BV vs SD800 for this leak. Sony might have different model numbers for different regions so they still could very well be the same tablet. I doubt Sony is readying a second tablet.

New image of the Sony Xperia G and its specifications leak

Earlier this week, a photo of the unannounced Sony Xperia G alongside with the Xperia Z1 surfaced on Twitter. However, this time, ViziLeaks took it to twitter  yesterday to post an image of what appears to be the rear of the Xperia G as well as its specifications. The handset on the top appears to be the Xperia Z1.

According to the tweet, the Xperia G sports a 4.8 inch display, 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage, LTE connectivity with an 8MP rear camera which is situated in the center of the rear case. The tweet also mentions that it doesn’t have an IP rating so it means that the device might not be waterproof.

Sony might unveil the Xperia G at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) set to take place in Barcelona on February 24.

New Sony D6503 “Sirius” Photos Leak

tagged , , ,

Sony-D6503-Sirius-against-Xperia-Z-Z1-640x359Pictures of the yet-to-be released Sony D6503 “Sirius” have surfaced. These photos show of the device in both black and white. In a side-by-side picture with the Xperia Z and Xperia Z1, we can see that Sirius will be the biggest of the bunch.  With the Z and Z1 packing a 5-inch display, the rumored 5.2-inch screen isn’t that much bigger.

According to the leak, the phone will come without a logo on the shatterproof protector and will arrive in April. That being said chances are we’ll see it at MWC at the end of the month, as current rumors suggest.
