CES has always been the place where Sony unveils its flagship for the year: 2012 was the year of the Ion and Xperia S, and 2013 was the year of the Xperia Z. It was just normal for us to expect a flagship device at this year’s CES and we were disappointed in only seeing an American version of the Xperia Z1, and its compact, younger brother (not that these two are not topnotch phones).
The Xperia Z2 (at least that’s what the rumors refer to the Z1 follow-up) might pop-up at MWC in Barcelona in a month or so. That’s the general consensus (or the logical conclusion… or just wishful thinking) on the inter webs. It’s been often referred to as “Sirius” and @evleaks reiterated some of the specs we’ve already heard back in September of last year: a 5.2-inch screen, and a Snapdragon MSM8974AB chipset. In addition, early rumors also mentioned 3GB of RAM, 20.7MP camera (same as Z1), 3,200mAh battery, as well as Android 4.4 KitKat. Knowing Sony’s track record, water and dustproofing should also be in.
However, for the time being, this is all speculation, at least until we hear something official from Sony, like an invite to a pre-MWC press event. We’ll be there in Barcelona to bring you all the juicy bits from the show floor, including the Xperia Z2, should Sony decide to bring it to the Fira.
