Sony D6503 ‘Sirius’ side-by-side against the Xperia Z1

by XB on 20th January 2014

in Rumours, Xperia Z1, Xperia Z2

Sony Sirius against Xperia Z1_2The Sony D6503 Sirius reveal suggests that the handset will sport a 5.2-inch 1080p display, which compares to the 5.0-inch 1080p display of the Xperia Z1. If you wanted to get a sense of how the two frames compares then check out the pics below. The thickness of the devices look similar, although Sirius does look marginally slimmer. However, there’s no doubting that Sirius is longer by a few millimetres. Overall, we doubt there is much between the devices and this probably goes for the weight too (the Z1 weighs 170 grams).

  • hash

    This phone is what I have been waiting all my life! so sexy!

  • hash

    I wonder how Doomlord gets his hand on all this cool stuff! :S

  • kakooli


  • Ahmet Gökta?

    A little taller and slimmer than Z1

  • Bong Abueg

    Give me this specs at the size of the T2 Ultra and I shall want for nothing more…

  • DooMLoRD

    actually I dont… someone else has this device… same guy who posted the initial leak pics on XDA

  • Icefraction

    I hope it comes in white :3

  • Shimoda

    woooah ! guys, just look at the sony logo compared to the z1, I think this new xperia will not have the logo implemented in the shatterproof screen protector

  • hash

    oh.. seems legit.. but what about leak software builds..?? heard your working on 4.4.2?

  • Jonfensu

    Hey DooM, thanks for everything!, But I still dont understand something. If this phone had an old 4.3 build(17.0.A.0.228), How do you get the 4.4 version (17.1.A.X.XXX)?

  • Mokhtar Mouhib

    I think this is the zl, so.cooool

  • Joh Kevin Manabat

    How the hell can you even see that?

    Yup…this is it,it is bound to replace my neo V in future…Sony definitely makes the Most beautiful devices……

  • hash

    I think its name would be T2 not Z2.. because of T2 ultra.. just guessing

  • Shimoda

    I don’t know… Don’t you think it is more “metalic” ?

  • Mint

    Yup Sony has definitely stopped the leaks #lol

    I like the Z1 more for the moment.

    Meh just a Z1 S like Arc S and so on.

  • Mey

    It’s just the angle.

  • Shimoda


  • CLB

    This afternoon we saw a screenie with the specs which said ‘4,86″ screen’

    And on the pictures we see a bigger device than a 5″ Xperia Z1…Quite weird isn’t it!?

  • Elias Fazel

    5.2″ display and of course taller than Z1 !!!
    please leave OmniBalance design it just make phone taller with stupid design.

  • Tjaldid

    Does not seem to have dual speakers on the front, maybe at the top and bottom?

  • Feanor

    Eh, yes. I don’t know what Sony is up to. Any single added millimetre in length is bound to receive very bad publicity.

  • Most likely this is my next phone. gonna skip the z1

  • thumble

    Hey DooMLoRD do you think that the z1 will get 4k video in the next 4.4.2 kitkat update becourse it supports 4k video do think that its possible for sony to implement this

  • jose

    it’s because these specs doesn’t count the pixels used in the on-screen buttons

  • naru

    Alast! Thin bezels, hopefully utilises the new JDI ips panel. I’ve been waiting for this phone! The xperia z1 was prefect except for its display. Cheers DooMLoRD. We owe you one.

  • Marius-Cristian Dragan

    Ok…this looks impressive but phones going bigger and bigger is a trend that has to stop!
    First of all I have to say that I consider myself a Sony fanboy, but I don’t think this Z2 or whatever it will be called worth the upgrade from my XZ, and for sure not from XZ1!
    I love Sony, my home is full of Sony, even if average salary in Romania is 400euro, I paid 1200euro for Vaio Pro, 500euro for a Bravia TV when I could buy something similar from another brand for 350!Also I paid lots of money for my home cinema, for speakers and cd player in my car, hell I even bought very expensive usb memory and earphones from Sony, because, as we all know, Sony is a premium brand that comes with premium prices as well!
    The thing is I love all my Sony products, I love my Xperia Z more than anything probably, but I have to say I don’t like how newer phones become bigger and bigger. I think Xperia Z1 was already too big, and if LG was able to put all that goodies in G2 (OIS, 3000mAh battery) I think Sony should be able to do the same thing. I mean, with advance of technology and with no bezels at all, a phone could have a display of 6 or even more inches with the same dimensions as Xperia Z.
    Perhaps they should make phones thicker, I don’t mind anything under 10mm, but I’m aware that not anyone has my tastes.
    Don’t know about you guys, but I won’t ever buy a phone bigger than my Xperia Z.

  • Makiz

    I agree with many ppl here, I don’t want a bigger phone than my Z is, I think that Z is already big for some pockets and not so comfortable especially if you wear tight jeans all the time.. I’ll wait till something equal or smaller pops out of the box!

  • Kaz

    NO ONE power button on earth can match that of Xperia Z. Period. ;)

  • Mokhtar Mouhib

    Stupid people plz this is not the z2 for god sack, this is zl or something new but not the z2 for.sure

  • Luxsaan06

    I don’t like the side flaps…the flaps on the Z range is very better, the T2 ultra’s side flaps are even better, the D6503 flaps are to big(height)…Z is C660X and ZL is C650X, so D650X can’t be Z2 as the D660X is Z2. and remember last year the ZL was leaked more thn Z, its the same now

  • Persian User

    Its definitely not the Z2.
    I think it will be T2 or ZL2.

  • Bezelicious

    Dat bezel!

  • r41nier

    I’ll wait for the ZR successor. Too big for me.

  • kewsvnet

    They have answered your question…Xperia Z1 Compact

    I think some bezels are needed for it to be ergonomic to hold and use without accidentally touching the touchscreen

  • kewsvnet

    already wondering when Sirium Compact is going to come out!!!


    Dear Sony, Pls shut up and TAKE MY MONEY!!!!!! TAKE IT !!!!!!!!

  • Mac

    Would have been perfect in the size of ZR tho. Z1 compact is a little but 2 small in screen size. But hey, that’s just me tho.

    larger and larger every new flagship. XD

  • TheTruth

    Z1 dimensions: 144mm x 74mm x 8.5mm

    Z2 dimensions: 146mm x 72mm x 8.2mm


  • GEEKnorway

    Isn’t that the Z1 compact?

  • sad?

    Gotta admit I’m TAD-INI-MINI-BIT disappointed in the size. Was sort of expecting slimmer bezels thus bigger screen while keeping the exact same size as the Z1.

    Well, given that the size is just that little bit of an increment, I guess it’s ok =/

  • Nguyen Eazy

    I was expecting something like Arc Z, not this, so much of this already :

  • TechGuyChris

    What material is the Sirius made of? Is it still glass?

  • arcwindz

    Indeed, compact is great! But i have zl and has grown to like the 5 inch screen, so movig back to 4,3 inch is a bit hard, not to mention the on screen navigation.
    And no, thin bezel on zl is perfectly fine.
    Best solution is if sony release a non waterproof phone that will cut a lot of space

  • Harut Hajin

    HOH You tell , How I feel . …YOU 100% RIGHT

    Whelp, since Sony couldn’t shrink the chin and forehead on this thing ala the G2; me thinks the G2 is my next phone. I’ve been enamored with Sony products since day one, but their lack of speedy releases and enormous bezels has driven me away from them as far as the mobile sector goes. I’ll keep them in my living room… Just not in my pocket…

  • Opinion

    you don’t need to upgrade phone when every new phone out,let sony improve their products, hardware and software wise,if not you,others will buy the phone,i think when you buy a phone,it’s good to use it for 2-3 years,then buy a new phone,and by that time,you can choose which model you prefer,with noticable improvement from your current phone

  • Berg

    Is that a TV in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

    I’m waiting for Sirius Compact

  • 3rdflyleaf

    I agree. I love the size of ZR. I’m using it now, it’s the perfect size for me!

  • 3rdflyleaf

    Me too.

  • Mac

    Yep, for me 2, my acro s is a bit 2 small but everything bigger than ZL is 2 big for me. But I think I’ll get the z1 compact because it will be awesome even if it lacks a bit screen size, IR Blaster and the opinion of purple..

  • 3rdflyleaf

    My previous phone was Xperia S. It has 4.3″
    ZR has 4.5 with on screen buttons, so usually you are using 4.3″ screen display. that’s why I prefer 4.5.

  • Pingback: Sony Xperia Z2/Sirius comparat cu Xperia Z1 în noi fotografii | Service iPhone Apple()

  • Mac

    Yep I know, but the thing is that it’s a more compact design and while viewing pictures or videos the extra 0.25″es does make a big difference.

  • HardyHarHar

    I’m predicting a 1meter X 0.7meter x 0.3meter flagship phone in the year 2030.
