The Xperia Z1 has yet to debut in retail stores, but the first rumors surrounding Sony's next Xperia Z2 flagship emerged last evening. And today, we have another fresh round of rumors, which sound more like an Xperia Z phablet (smaller than the Z Ultra) than the Z2. According to the new rumors, the Xperia Z2 will pack a larger 5.5-inch 2560 x 1600 display, a 3500 mAh battery and the Snapdragon 800 SoC.
We did some digging around, reached out to our own sources to find out that the Xperia Z2 is indeed real, but isn't coming anytime soon (might be announced in the next 6 months, but won't be available for purchase for anther 8-10 months). Also, the Xperia Z2 will pack a 5.2-inch 1080p display, which falls nicely in line with yesterday's rumors. While our sources are puzzled about this new 5.5-inch device, they are speculating a Galaxy Note III competitor in the works that is actually similar in size (the Z Ultra is a competitor to the Nexus 7, in terms of size), and that it might pack a 2560 x 1600 panel which was showcased by LG earlier this year.
IFA 2013 only ended a week ago, and we are already speculating about MWC and CES 2014. Phew, things keep getting heated up more and more with each passing day.
