sony d6503 sirius 5

While Sony’s Xperia Z1 line, including the Sony Xperia Z1, Sony Xperia Z1s, and Sony Xperia Z1 contract, is still impressing the shirts off our backs, it looks like the Japanese company could be working on even more heavy hitters for the future. What we’re seeing below are picture of the Sony D6503, which has supposedly been codenamed “Sirius.”

According to the XDA resident who leaked the device, it’ll apparently come equipped with Qualcomm’s 2.3Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, and a whopping 3GB of RAM. Beyond that, folks are also told to expect a 5.2-inch 1080p HD display, as well as the same 20.7 megapixel camera sensor featured on the aforementioned Z1 line.

Alongside shots of the device, we are also treated to shots of its Android 4.3-based user interface. You should note that Sony is expected to launch this thing with KitKat. Changes to the user experience seem fairly minor up against their smartphones of today, though we could probably see some new bits with the KitKat-based build.

There was no word on when we can expect to see this device, but Sony has historically used Mobile World Congress to launch their first half products on a big stage. We’ll be seeing if they have anything to bring with them to Barcelona at some point early next month. Be sure to hit the source links for more.
