Now, I know what you’re thinking: Sony said they were going to try and keep a lid on their future products as a result of what happened to the Xperia Z1. That ordeal could only be described as the worst kept secret in smartphone history and we knew exactly what to expect when it was released. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like Sony‘s preventative methods are working terrible well as a set of detailed leaked photos featuring a so-called Sony D6503 have been circulating the internet.
The photos show a prototype that looks eerily like the Z1 except for some key differences including slightly narrower side bezels, suggesting a slightly larger screen, and a 3-hole speaker as opposed to the Z1′s mesh overlay. Some other minor placement changes are present too, but in general, the majority of the Z1′s physical features remain. Whether this Sony D6503 is the Z1 refresh we have been hearing about or the Z2 that Sony is reportedly unveiling at MWC next month remains to be seen, but it seems inevitable that we’ll be finding out more about this phone through leaks in the near future.
Would you be interested in a phone like this Sony D6503? For those who wanted a Z1 but were still on the fence, this might just be what the doctor ordered. Let us know what you think.
