Sony has released a teaser video for its MWC event, scheduled for 1PM IST on 24 February 2014, where it is expected to reveal its new flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z2. The teaser video doesn't really reveal much, and just says "Something extraordinary is coming", and "XperiaDetails 24.02.2014".
The rumoured Sony Xperia Z2
has yet to be hinted at by the Japanese manufacturer, but the device has been the subject of numerous leaks for months now, as a purported device said to be codenamed the Sony D6503 Sirius doing the rounds of the Internet.
Numerous leaks about the Sony 'D6503 Sirius' Xperia Z2 indicate the smartphone will feature a quad-core Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974-AB) chipset clocked at 2.3GHz with Adreno 330 GPU; 3GB of RAM; 5.2-inch full-HD display; a 20.7-megapixel rear camera, and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera
Earlier in February, an alleged video
of the yet-to-be-announced Sony Xperia Z2 was released, a two-minutes long video that supposedly showcases the new Xperia UI running Android 4.4 KitKat. The camera interface shown in the video also features the option to record videos in 4K.
Previously leaked screenshots
of the camera settings showed off the ability to record 1080p video at 60 frames per second, and a 15.5-megapixels manual mode.
Last month, an XDA developer's forum member had posted a bunch of alleged live images
of the rumoured Xperia D6503 'Sirius'. The same XDA developer also published leaked UI screenshots of the Xperia D6503, which showed the alleged Sony device running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
Later, a report in January
, accompanied by purported screenshots, pointed to numerous Xperia UI changes that are expected to be skinned on top of Android 4.4 KitKat when the device ships.
Some of the features said to be included are 4K recording, Timeshift video, smart backlight control, the presence of two home launchers, USB DAC audio support, and more.
