The update brings the latest and greatest version of Android to Sony’s early 2013 Xperia lineup.
It seems the D6503, aka “Sirius”, is not the only unreleased high-end Sony handheld in testing, as a D6603 has been benchmarked through AnTuTu with an evolved Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU beneath the hood.
The so-called Sony “Sirius”, expected to debut at next month’s Mobile World Congress as some sort of Xperia Z1 rehash, has apparently been caught on camera over the week-end, while its rumored specs look positively… pedestrian.
Sony had a fairly poor showing at CES 2014, at least compared with last year’s Consumer Electronics Show, but word around the street is the Xperia creators will more than make up for it in February, during the Mobile World Congress (MWC).
After going on record with concrete Android 4.4 KitKat update plans for a raft of spanking new devices currently running Jelly Bean, Sony has turned its attention to a few older and more technically modest gadgets, indirectly confirming they’re also due for software bumps.
Just like it has happened in the past with the Xperia Z and Z Ultra, the Sony Xperia “Honami” is unable to maintain the slightest air of mystery ahead of its formal introduction, being an open book for us all already.
If you want something big, bad and hot and aren’t willing to wait it out for when Samsung will make the Galaxy Note 3 available, Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra might just be the perfect device for you. Only the 6.4-incher is itself hard to score… for now.
HTC, Samsung, and Sony have spoken out on their plans to update devices to Android 4.3, the latest version of the OS that Google officially unveiled at its “breakfast with Sundar Pichai” event.
Expected out in September on a global wide scale, Sony’s latest crown jewel and possibly the best smartphone in Android history… so far, the Xperia Z Ultra, is likely to land earlier in a couple of Asian countries.
They’ve both been a long time coming, they will both be available exclusively via T-Mobile in the US and they are both seeing daylight come July 17. No prizes for guessing what devices I’m talking about, as it is fairly obvious – Sony’s Xperia Z and Nokia’s Lumia 925.
Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra fascinated us all with its beastly 6.4-inch Full HD screen, enthralled with the promise of Snapdragon 800 heat and enchanted with a massive 3,000 mAh battery, water and dust protection, as well as pencil and stylus support. But it’s probably time to become pragmatic.
Is T-Mobile on a roll or what? The (still) number four wireless network in the States has ditched contracts not long ago, is planning to launch LTE-Advanced by the end of 2013 and might be the first to sell two very exciting phones – Nokia’s Lumia 925 and Sony’s Xperia Z.
The moment we’ve all been waiting for is finally here. Sony has officially unveiled the Xperia Z Ultra and… the thing is as spectacular as expected.
After a long wait, the company that earned the reputation for delayed software updates has surprised many by rolling out the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for its flagship Xperia Z, beating the HTC One to the race.
Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin made a tweet that could only lead to one obvious conclusion, that Sony is working on an updated Xperia Z with the SNapdragon 800 SoC inside and is planning to release it soon, perhaps in one of the upcoming events.
The long-awaited Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for the Sony Xperia Z has been leaked. Also, we have the first screenshots of the leaked firmware showing off Sony’s Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean UI.
Close to six months after being introduced to the world, Sony’s Xperia Z smartphone looks finally ready to hit a mainstream US carrier – T-Mobile.
After the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One, looks like its Sony’s turn to have a Google Edition product in their portfolio. No prizes for guessing which phone will be selected for the job.
