At CES 2014, the Japan-based totally cellphone maker simplest offered a few Z1 variations: one aimed for the T-Cellular shoppers and some other dubbed Z1 Compact, packing a four.three-inch HD show. The most recent studies within the trade point out that Sony can have new excessive-finish units on their work desk, with at the least one in all them set to debut at Cell World Congress 2014.
Despite the fact that they’ll in all probability go on sale beneath the Xperia model, the 2 new gadgets are at present identified internally as Sony Sirius (which is corporate’s 2014 flagship) and Sony Castor (a brand new Sony pill). Consistent with @evleaks, the infamous leaker who has a straight record of providing accurate tech-related reports, the Sony Sirius smartphone will be officially unveiled at MWC 2014.
The same source also revealed that Sony Sirius will feature a 5.2-inch display (most likely with 1080p resolution) and a MSM8974AB SoC, which is nothing but a Snapdragon 800 SoC with four Krait 400 cores clocked at 2.3 GHz. @evleaks also informs that Sony Sirius will hit the US via Verizon. Different rumors suggest that T-Mobile might also have the next-gen Sony flagship in their portfolio.
Anyway, this is not the first time we’ve heard about the Sony Sirius, previous reports indicating that the Xperia Z1 follow-up would launch at CES 2014. The rumor mill also suggested that Sony’s 2014 flagship will be underpinned by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 805 CPU and that the 5.2-inch display will boast about 2560 x 1440 resolution. As you probably noticed, @evleaks’ information contradicts previous reports. Who’s to be believed? We can’t know yet.
On the other hand, the Sony Castor might become the Japan-based company’s replacement for the Sony Xperia Tablet Z, even though @evleaks’ tweet doesn’t point out the rest like this. In reality it doesn’t even divulge whether or not Sony Castor shall be presented at MWC 2014, synchronized with Sirius’ debut. The document says although that the Sony pill can have a 2.three GHz Snapdragon 800 processor within and that it’ll be to be had with WiFi-handiest and WiFi+LTE connectivity.
Sadly, there’s no option to check the rumors, subsequently you will have to take them with a grain of salt, as a result of nothing is legitimate unless Sony say it’s legitimate.
