By 06:06 Sun, 18 Jul 2021 Comments

The Sony Xperia D6503, rumored to be either the Xperia Z1L or the Xperia Z2 but for now codenamed Sirius, has been leaking all over the place these past few days. First there were some pictures of it and later we got a whole bunch of screenshots showing the recent UI of the smartphone.

Now we acquire what appears to be the final batch of UI screenshots and information concerning the device. First off let's recap what we know - the Xperia D6503 sports a Snapdragon 800 MSM8974-AB with quad-core 2.3 Giga Hertz (GHz) Krait 400, Adreno 330 GPU and 3 gigs of RAM. The capturing camera is a 20.7 MegaPixel (MP) unit with the 1/2.5" sensor and the device runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

However now we've got some recent images that solidify the claim the Xperia Sirius will come with front-mounted stereo speakers.

Here's an image of the Sony Xperia Sirius next to an Xperia Z1 - the Sirius should have a 5.2" 1080p classy screen compared to the 5" 1080p classy screen of the Xperia Z1. Size-wise both devices are identical, so Sony has obviously done a fine job in slimming the bezels.

The capturing camera on the Sony Xperia Sirius will be able to capture 4K (2160p) video, just like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. It will also sport slow motion video capture (Timeshift video), Background defocus mode for images with a narrower depth of field behind the focused taracquire (blurry bokeh backgrounds).

The display will feature Glove Mode, which is rather self-explanatory - it will be more sensitive so that you can utilize it with gloves on. Then there's Smart Backlight control - it's Sony's hold on Samsung's Smart Stay - the phone will detect when you're looking at the classy screen and haged it on. The phone will also have the double tap to wake feature, which we really love.

The Xperia Sirius will have Universal Serial Bus (USB) DAC support - playing high-def audio while connected to an external amplifier.

Sony has included a Simple Home launcher, which will show a bigger grid of apps with three speed dial shortcuts and the most used (exchangeable by the user) apps - similar to what fine recent TouchWiz has been offering for a while now.

The Dialer will feature an answering machine feature with the ability to set your own greeting and set the machine to work at a certain time. There's also Smart call handling - raising the phone while a call is incoming will automatically answer.

There's also a close all apps shortslit in the app switcher interface.

Sony has included its own hold on HTC's BlinkFeed. It's accessible through a swipe up from the navigation bar and will be located next to the Google Now shortcut. We don't know what exactly it will be but it looks like a grid of social information.

What's new

So there you have it - the latest from Sony, which we're expecting to see soon (likely on the MWC 2014 floor in February).
