Who says Sony leaks are a thing of the past? Below you will see what are believed to be live photos of the upcoming Sony D6503 handset. The leak comes courtesy of iRimas from XDA, who tags this phone as the D6503 and plans to share some leaks of the UI shortly too. The phone itself looks very similar to the Xperia Z1, although the side bezels are noticeably thinner. The smaller bezel could indicate that the handset sports a slightly larger 5.2-inch display into the same frame size.
The bottom of the phone has three larger speaker holes as opposed to the fine mesh speaker grill found in the Xperia Z1.The micro USB port sits on the left side with what looks like the SIM tray. The right side has room for a micro SD slot. The only other change is the lanyard, which is placed on the left side, rather than the right side on the Xperia Z1.
Apart from that, the placement of all features looks the same as the Xperia Z1, including power button, volume rocker, dedicated camera key, magnetic pins, headphone jack and even the LED notification light. The camera placement on the back of the phone is also the same, although the specs beside the camera do not reveal whether this will be the same 20.7MP sensor as found in the Xperia Z1. So are you happy to see a similar design being used as last year’s Xperia Z1? Does this new model excite you? We’d love to hear your thoughts below.
