Sony D6503 Xperia Z2

We’ve been hearing whisperings about Sony’s follow up to the Sony Xperia Z1, better known by its codename: the Sony “Sirius.” Today, we have what appears to be our first “Sirius” look at the device (see what I did there?) after YouTube user Rimas Flyil got his hands on the Sony D6503 (allegedly the Z2) and uploaded a detailed 12-minute walkthrough video. In the video, Rimas explores all the ins and outs of the device — and in complete silence because sometimes you don’t need a commentary when showing a phone off.

The device looks largely similar to Sony’s previous offerings, running Android 4.4.2 KitKat and coming equipped with software features such as the built-in “Glove mode” for using the device with gloves on, Simple Home mode for the elderlies, tap-to-wake (similar to the LG G2), and the ability to toggle notifications for individual apps (a la iOS). The video also shows off Sony’s camera app which contains a plethora of shooting modes and features, and has the ability to video in 4K thanks to the 20.7MP camera (and beefy processor, no doubt).

Check out the video below for yourself and before you come to any conclusions, remember that this is listed as a prototype running an extremely early KitKat build. We’re sure we’ll be providing you with our own hands-on during Mobile World Congress, so be on the look out.
