Is this the back panel of a future Sony Xperia?

in Rumours

Future XperiaThe picture you see below is purporting to show the back panel of an upcoming Sony Xperia device, according to Digi-wo. The panel shows the camera configuration sits differently to the current Xperia Z1, with the LED flash adjacent to the camera lens rather than below it. You can also see a small hole which would be the secondary mic. The ‘Xperia’ logo can be seen in the middle with the letters “XX-XXX” at the bottom, which could indicate that this is a carrier device.

It is difficult to make out what material this purple panel is made out of. It’s obviously not glass, but it could be a type of plastic or anodised metal. Other reports suggest carbon fibre may be used, which seems unlikely to us. The leaksters say this device may have a 23MP camera sensor with G Lens and sport a 5.3-inch display. What do you think – real or fake?

    a removable metal backplate would be awesome!!!

  • Ghareeb Saeed

    Fake! No Xenon Flash?! Let’s see!

  • raj

    i would still prefer a glass back panel

  • Real fake

  • Colby Leong

    A Sapphire Glass panel on the front and back

  • raj

    i will get an orgasm, if that happens :D

  • Colby Leong

    As long as there is a significant upgrade to what Sony had put in to the Z1 then Sony should do fine. Better camera, specs, screen, etc…

  • Sami Mrabet

    Glas means alot off fingerprints so metal is better

  • raj

    but looks classy……………
    my Xperia is Water proof :)
    I will wash it with water often

  • Colby Leong

    Would that mean no IP certification?

  • Raj Singh

    It probably wouldn’t be waterproof if it had a removable backplate…

  • doucheytuesday

    And then have crazy sex with it?

  • cs098

    Xperia ZR?

  • cs098

    The xperia v says otherwise.

  • Jwz Jort

    But the xperia v has also a removable back and its also waterproof..

  • noooo put the xperia text at the bottom where it belongs or better yet not at all

    sony logo is plenty

  • Amir

    YES FUCKING PLEASE! unfortunately the material is still way too expensive for whole front and back. i think in like 5 years it will be possible.

  • Sami Mrabet

    Xperia Active, Go, ZR and V has removable backs and is still waterproof ;)

  • penubag

    Sad no xenon flash even though it is wishful thinking due to the amount of thickness it adds. Just thought maybe Sony engineers thought of how to do it for z2. In any case it looks good though I would prefer glass as well

  • James Earley

    If it’s a carrier phone then the Xperia logo would be in the middle with the carrier logo at the bottom. The international version of the phone would have the Sony logo in the middle and Xperia at the bottom.

  • lucasarg

    #Fake, the back don’t have the Sony Logo ¬¬

  • Tjaldid

    on that note what do you guys think are the chances of a Z2 Ultra being unveiled at MWC I really want a Z Ultra Sized phone but I will not be replacing it for at least a couple of years or 3, so a upgraded Camera and a bigger Battery will go a long way,

  • redwan

    where is the sony xperia z2 right or left ?

  • unknown

    Try to maintained until it will be released so you would be able to test an vibrator as well as water proofness. Makes sure you have full coverage on media.

  • Raj Singh

    Oh okay, I didn’t know. Thanks for pointing that out. I have the Ultra and the glass is awesome, has a great feel to it but the thing scratches way too easily — well, the anti scratch film on it…

  • Raj Singh

    That’s cool. Thanks for pointing that out. I didn’t know. Every phone that comes out now should be waterproof. Should be standard.

  • shanefalco

    Luckily Sony abandons the glass (too fragile). Now I hope that reduce the frames and borders.

  • Kawasaki Ali

    This is a Japanese version. You can see the Japanese tap-to-pay logo instead of NFC logo. Instead, xx-xxx is similar to how the Japanese call SONY phones, such as SO-04E.

  • xperiaDROID

    I hope it’s fake, cuz it’s looks the same as the Z1.

  • Glass vs carbon fibre(hopefully)? I’ll take carbon fibre thank you very much. It would be better if it’s like the Vaio Z carbon fibre. That thing was durable.

  • Z have Xperia logo in the middle. Mine is international verison

  • James Earley

    Starting with Z1.

  • rexperia

    It was Xperia M then followed by ZU and the rest of Xperia lines are putting this SONY logo in the middle and xperia in the bottom.

  • rexperia

    I really like the concept of canopus, whic have a thin bezel and stereo speakers at the upper and bottom, hopefully SONY is going to make it come true!!

  • wick

    I really hope this isn’t the Xperia Z2
    first of all i prefer glass panel it looks a thousand times more classic and beautiful just look at z1
    second LED flash again!!!! where is the xenon??
    Xperia z1 looks far far far better than this…i dont think this phone is going to be a worthy upgrade to z1 owners
    just my opinion…

  • Nicee

    Yes… I have Docomo Phones that have that tap-to-pay logo… and yes xx-xxxx is the model number..good observation my friend :)

  • xperiax10.awesome

    I want to see a Xperia with Stylus !!

  • catmincer

    And Xperia V.

    Looking at the back panel, it looks like a small iPad mini. Hoping Sony would change its face so it will not be sued by the Cupertino giant.

  • Mokhtar Mouhib

    Nooo where is the xénon flash sony ? I was waiting for it, why i will upgrade from my z1 to z2 if it looks the same, come on sooony make some changes

  • cs098


  • vigneshprince

    wow this is interesting

  • P9

    next xperia should have both glass & aluminium version to choose, super!

  • P9

    ZU, can use even with any pencil, what u want more?

  • ?????

    Interesting.. It curves down on the side and doesn’t seem to be made of glass =/

  • Abhijit Biswas

    Xperia Go has its battery and other internals sealed so that doesn’t matter…..

    But yes, you don’t need an uni-body design to make a phone waterproof!

  • hamody.ap

    we want glass sony don’t change the glass please sony

  • techielover

    Sony Phones
    1,Design are awesome.
    2.Screen not too good.
    3.Battery life-50/50.
    4.Camera- They do supply lenses to other manufactures but lenses in their phone lol bit lag among others.
    5.Build Quality-Exceptional
    6.Performance-Stock Android like software gives good performance.
    7.Software Bugs-more concentration
    Conclusion-All in all buy Sony if you want something different and unique except few compromises
