Possible Sony Xperia G pictured, tipped as upcoming mid-ranger

Sony appears to have a number of Android phones in the works, and while we’ve seen what its efforts look like to deliver additional flagship-level devices (like that Sirius model that just starred in some new pics), being competitive in Android these days means covering your bases at a whole lot of different price points. That’s going to mean new mid-rangers, and today we get a look at what could be one such upcoming model from Sony, described as the Xperia G.

That sure looks to be a Z1/Z1S on top, making the model underneath the purported Xperia G. It appears that the handset isn’t quite as large as the Z1, but it’s also not nearly as small as the Z1 Compact – that got us wondering if we might be looking at a screen in the 4.7-inch range. Additional specs weren’t attached to the pic’s publication, but there’s a possibility that this model might be Sony’s D5103, which benchmarks have pegged as running a Snapdragon 400 and having a 720p screen.

ViziLeaks followed up that first pic with a new one just a couple hours ago, posting the image you see below. This time, we get some specs, including a 4.8-inch screen size that fits nicely with our estimates, an eight-megapixel main camera, 1GB of RAM, and none of Sony’s waterproofing magic. That all sounds solidly mid-range to us. With the state of the phone as we see it in these shots, we wouldn’t be surprised if Sony felt ready to bring it along to the Mobile World Congress in a little over a week.
