Looks like Japanese mobile maker Sony is working on new smartphones and is getting ready to unveil three new models in the Xperia series soon. Code names of these three new smartphones have surfaced on a couple of Chinese social websites Weibo and Digi-Wo.
It’s been a while since Sony’s flagship Xperia Z2 was introduced and Sony seems to be developing three new smartphones for release in the second half of 2014. Rumor has it that the code names of these three upcoming devices are based on names of constellations. They are: Leo, Aries and Pegasus. There is no other information available but Leo is allegedly going to be the Xperia Z3, while Aries will be the Xperia Z3 Compact. It is not known which model Pegasus is going to be but it may possibly be some variant of Xperia Z3.
Since Xperia Z3 is supposed to be launching in September this year at the IFA 2014 in Berlin, Germany, it can be assumed that the other two variants will also be released around that time. Sony had launched its Xperia Z1 there last year. It is expected that Sony will use Qualcomm Snapdragon 305 processor in the new models as many companies are adopting it now.
The source websites of the leak have a good track record for leaks pertaining to Sony so we can assume that this information from them may be quite accurate. However, there is no official word from Sony about the three new smartphones Leo, Aries and Pegasus. Hopefully, more news will be out soon since IFA is just 2 months away. We will of course relay any new information we come across about them. So stay tuned for more.
