sony-logoIt’s been a few months since Sony unveiled its flagship device, the Sony Xperia Z1, at the IFA 2013 in Berlin. The handset also went on sale in the US recently, dubbed as Xperia Z1s and is available exclusively through T-Mobile. But, it seems the rumor mill never waits for anything, and have started mentioning that Sony’s upcoming flagship device, possibly the Xperia Z2, is already in works and will make an official appearance at the Mobile World Congress 2014 next month in Barcelona, Spain.

Based on this latest rumor, the alleged handset, codenamed Sirius aka Xperia Z2, rocks a 5.2-inch boasting a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, with a 20.7MP rear camera and a massive 3,700 mAh battery under the hood to provide enough juice to the handset.

The rumored handset is expected to come with Snapdragon 800 (really?) chipset with 3GB of RAM on board. Well, this sounds surprising as Qualcomm unveiled their latest Snapdragon 805 SoC sometime back, and Snapdragon 800 is already present in the Xperia Z1. The bump of 1GB of RAM may not be noticed by many casual users, but we’re expecting it to launch with Snapdragon 805.

There’s no official word about the alleged handset from Sony, and there won’t be until its announced. Let’s just take this rumor with a pinch of salt, as we’re not really sure about the authenticity of the source cited by the report, but the fact that it was shared by the notorious @evleaks who has a very decent track record when it comes to leaked information.
