Walkman lock screenA few new screenshot images of Sony’s upcoming D6503 ‘Sirius’ smartphone have leaked courtesy of iRimas from XDA. They show the Walkman lock screen on the device, which is running Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

It doesn’t look like Sony is adopting the full-screen Album art that makes an appearance in KitKat, but it does offer a progress bar to skip through part of a track. This is a new addition versus the current lockscreen as seen in the Xperia Z1 below.

Another addition is the camera button at the bottom of the lock screen, we don’t know if this completely replaces the ‘swipe to camera’ on the current lock screen, but hopefully we’ll find out soon enough.

    Sony, it is time to offer a font customization option. Standard fonts are way too ordinary. More modern, funkier, cooler fonts are needed.

  • Persian User

    Sony’s UI is getting maturer with every update and flagship.
    Thats exactly how a great UI must look like; simple, practical and elegant.
    I really love it <3

  • Mike Gonzalez

    really disappointed they didnt use the full screen album cover from KitKat 4.4

  • Carljn

    Very slight changes. But I think it looks slightly better and more refined.

  • Makiz

    I want to hit in the eye anyone (Apple-Sams-HTC fans) saying that Sony’s UI sucks, is ugly or poor! Really!!

  • Libyan Guy

    Love the battery icon looks unique ^^

  • Makiz

    Simple is cool enough, it’s the new modern

  • xv user

    Sony please I want this feature in my XV…
    Just saying…:)

  • Serdar Altunok


  • agoNITE

    If only Sony would create more Walkman homescreen widgets. I’d like a larger one (4*2 or 4*4 even).

  • Tjaldid

    don’t you mean TFT LCD or IPS LCD?

  • Persian User

    Full HD or Quad HD IPS LCD

  • Serdar Aytamaner

    Having the option to change wouldn’t hurt :)

  • Jonfensu

    TFT is NOT a PANEL …Damn! Did you mean:


  • Giannikosmo

    The battery icon was much better in Android 4.3….:(

  • Alfie De Castro

    one more week to go!!! i want to see this new flagship

  • karamelakimo

    but where’s the name of the song!!! must make it big tab to see it?? i don’t like that i wish it like 4.3 but include the progress bar also up or down

    the battery icon is unique and i like also the camera icon i think it will be like i phone by swipe up

  • Kamil1308

    Im sure you will be able to change the icon using Xposed

  • Mohammed Khired

    damn ! i always needed to skip through the track without unlock the device….now i want 4.4 asap!!!

  • Bryan Ng

    I agree to font customisation, i don’t think there’s any android phone that has that feature. Simplicity is good but with more fun features is the better.

  • John Sr Bond Jarro

    Very elegant, i want That 4.4 for My xperia Z :-)

  • lightninglion

    I really hope Sony brings this phone to the US not months after it launches worldwide but on the same day! Jst bring to AT&T pls

  • WhyWai

    I like the full screen album art. I hope sony will adapt that soon.

  • Utsav Shah

    Yes, this Sony UI is neat and clean. But i would not say that it’s an innovative UI design.
    It’s pretty much stock androidish or simple design.

    And I am a Sony (Ericsson) Fan for last 7 years!

  • Rene Pedroso

    I wonder if it will change to red and show a negative sign when it dips below a certain %

  • jake

    Just like ugly comic san fotn on galaxy ?

  • bimmersonygasm

    I think the + is for the new stamina mode on notification.. Great looking UI.. Want ASAP for my XZ

  • abbey yruma

    i started loving sony since 2005 when i first bought k700i been a sony lover since then now im using xperia Z1..:)

  • Luna Lim

    How to remove “Swipe up or down to unlock” ?
    Somehow I felt that it’s annoying…

  • mustafa

    The icon looks different on the final version

  • Adrian M

    I have a Xperia p with custom rom 4.4.2 with the newest sony album app and it looks like the new xperia smartphone, so all xperia that getting kitkat has this function because it is in the app :-P
    Sorry for my bad english

  • pain six path

    I think the opposite,battery icon became much more classy.

  • Serdar Aytamaner

    I knew exactly this was coming :)
    There are prettier & more classy fonts of course. It’s up to personal taste, anyway.

  • Tech Gospel

    Hey Adrian, how does the P run on 4.4? Faster? Slower? About the same?

    Hello, it runs a little bit faster. But without bugs or lags :-)

    It does it’s job well, without the unnecessary fireworks

  • Xperia Z ultra

    may be google doesn’t allow much changes to be incorporated in the original KITKAT user interface by other OEMs: i also own note 3, which is running 4.4.2, and with respect to UI, it is very similar to the samsung’s kit kat lockscreen Ui.

  • dooz

    go buy a samsung, thats how you’ll get rid of it

  • Utsav Shah

    yes it does.
    So does the Porsche and Volkswagen !

  • Charles dela Cruz

    Umm my galaxy s3 has that feature… though im not necessarily so in love with it. I assume most Galaxy phones can change fonts. (i could be wrong)

  • j_ee

    What is the ROM that you’re using?
    Does everything work? Bluetooth, Wifi, data, etc…

  • Adrian M

    Hello i use: cyanogenmod 11-2014
    Everything works fine but sometimes blutooth crash
    Nfc not tested

  • Kris

    In Jelly Bean 4.1.2 on my Xperia S it disappeared after three or four times of unlocking. However on my Z1 Compact with Android 4.3 it stays there all the time. I guess there is no possibility to “remove” it. I guess you need to hope that Sony will add this possibility in Kitkat again…

  • Makiz

    I still prefer Toyota :-P

  • Makiz

    It will have a full HD super amoled LCD TFT display with CRT cathode light and plasma cells. LoL :-P

  • Guest

    Yes, exactly!…;)

  • Serdar Altunok

    Yes, exactly!…

  • SonyFan

  • Libyan Guy

    Sony’s UI is the lightest one ever specially with SD 800 , sweevvvvvvvv like wind !

  • Opinion

    I quite dissapointed if they does not implement fullscreen album art since it is one of android 4.4 features, just like they done before by not including quick-tiles setting on 4.2 & 4.3

    Actually, it’s TN or IPS…

  • Mehrdad Ashkani

    I have just updated my Z1 to KitKat but the problem is that the walkman controls disappear from the lockscreen!!!

  • Haitham Shalaby

    After I made update the Walkman does not shows any more on the locked screen

    Any Idea how to fix this?

  • Divya Bharathi

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