A successor to Xperia Z1?


As the Xperia Blog reveals an upcoming Smartphone code named ‘Sirius’ or ‘D6503’ will be included with feature of 4K video recording. Sirius is supposedly to be the successor of Xperia Z1.

Sirius will be devised with Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS and advanced hardware and software with ability to record 4K videos. TimeShift Video is a new feature that is claimed to be added into this device that enables recording high frame-rate video that can be edited to produce slow motion effect in videos. The Smartphone will also be including a new added feature that will be called ‘Smart Call handling’ that will be allowing the user to answer or handle a call without touching the screen of the phone. The sensors of the phone enable answering the call when brought close to the ears and reject the call when phone is shaken, the last but not least the phone mutes itself when device is placed upside down.


Other couple of features added to the codenamed ‘Sirius’ is double tape to activate the screen. A mysterious feature currently named built-in answering machine is added to the phone. New personalization option and smarter backlight control are other added features. Features do not end at software level but plays its role at hardware level. Hardware has been structured by stereo speakers on the top as well as at the bottom.

When an official name shall be revealed or when this phone shall ship out to hit the markets still remains unraveled.
