Just a couple of days ago, images of Sony's 2014 marquee Sirius aka Xperia Z2 phone were leaked. Now, specifications have surfaced online hinting that the launch is just around the corner.
Sony dedicated community website, Xperia Blog, has revealed that the upcoming Sony Xperia Z2 (D6503) would boast of a bigger 5.2-inch size screen with a full HD (1080p) display, instead of 2K (5660x1440p) resolution as previously rumoured.
The blog also claims that the phone will ship with Android KitKat OS (v4.4.2), 2.3GHz Snapdragon (MSM8974AB) quad-core processor paired with Adreno 330 GPU, 3GB RAM, 20.7-megapixel main camera and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera.
Going by the leaked specifications list, we see that the new Xperia Z2 touted as the successor of Xperia Z1 is just an incremental model rather than a new generation phone. The only difference between its predecessor is that Z2 boasts a slightly bigger screen, runs on a new OS version and a bump in RAM capacity. Other features such as camera, processor specifications remain the same.
It is to be noted that Sony in its New Year message said it would continue Xperia Z1 as the flagship phone into 2014. This implies that the rumoured Xperia Z2 would be just another addition to the Xperia family of smartphones.
Rumours are rife that Xperia Z2 aka Sirius is expected to make its debut at the upcoming technology trade fair, MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2014, which is scheduled in Barcelona on 24-27 February.
