Sony Xperia Z1

Flagship Sony Sirius to be unveiled in February

Sony's smartphones keep on getting better and better with the Sony Xperia Z1 (above) improving on the already excellent Xperia Z in a number of important areas. And we have no doubt that Sony's next flagship will continue the trend.


The Japanese company unveiled a mini version of the flagship Xperia Z1, called the Z1 Compact, at CES 2014 earlier this week and it's already available to pre-order in the UK. But it looks as though we'll have to wait a little longer for their new flagship to make its debut.


At least that's according to the usually-reliable Twitter user EVLeaks who claims that Sony will take the lid off its new flagship smartphone, codenamed the Sony Sirius, at this years Mobile World Congress. Like always this years event is taking place in Barcelona and will begun on February 24th.


What do we know about the Sony Sirius?


No official information has been divulged, but rumours suggest it'll have a 5.2 inch touch-screen display running at a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution, which would give the Android smartphone a staggering 564 pixels-per-inch rating.


The smartphone is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor (MSM8974AB) which will be clocked above stock speeds (2.3GHz). It also looks set to join the likes of the Galaxy Note 3 with a whopping 3GB of RAM, while it'll have an improved version of the 20.7MP camera featured on the Xperia Z1.


Sony are very proud of their smartphones waterproofing which will be presumably be retained on their latest creation. While, it's also likely to a variation of the 'OmniBalance Design' introduced on the Xperia Z - most likely made from a combination of metal and glass as is the case on the Xperia Z1.


Android KitKat looks nailed on to come pre-loaded and the smartphone is likely to follow the Xperia Z1's lead and be capable of acting as a second display for Sony's PS4. As soon as we get fresh information about the Sony Sirius you'll be the first to know.
