Sony D6503 ‘Sirius’ to support FHD 60fps recording and 15.5MP pictures at 16:9?

Sony D6503 camera manual_1According to a couple of new screenshots from the Sony D6503, codenamed Sirius, it appears that the handset will feature the ability to take pictures at 15.5 megapixels in 16:9 ratio as well as record video at 1080p 60fps. The screenshots were taken from the D6503’s manual camera mode, showing these additions .

Currently, the Sony Xperia Z1 can take pictures at a maximum of 8MP in 16:9, whilst video recording is limited to 1080p at 30fps. Sirius will also be able to record VGA at 4:3, currently missing on the Xperia Z1. We can’t wait to see what else the handset has in store as we gear up for its release at MWC in Barcelona later this month.

    I just got my Xperia Z1 Compact recently. I’m hoping to get these camera features in a software update soon, as well as the Timeshift video app. As for 4K video recording, I don’t really care for that at this point.

    They won’t i am sure of that…xperia sirius will have the same chipset as xperia z1 so dont worry plus the camera hardware as it seems from the leak is also the same

    I loved when sony brought dust proof and water proof . its the killer feature. I think xzl has the right form factor. they should have started the bezel less screens and differentiate themselves from the rest of the stock. one thing better would be pre rooted phones and customized hardware options for their phones. it would be like you choose your configuration for the features you want on the phone.

  • Darren Gaspé

    Hoping it comes to Z1

  • If it isn’t coming through an official update (which I expect just after MWC) it’ll definitely be added by the modding community.

    Gotta love XDA.

    Very interesting thing I just come across at – I could choose any number of jewellery items (from the list) at very heavy discount rates (up to 75% off online) – more we buy more discount – I never seen this before.
