    Sony “Sirius” Could Be Launched As The Xperia Z2

    Sony Sirius Could Be Launched As The Xperia Z2Earlier at CES 2014, we saw a couple of new Sony handsets like the Xperia Z1s and the Xperia Z1 Compact, and while both phones were pretty interesting in their own way, neither were the company’s flagship device of 2014. Nope, that honor would be going to a certain rumored Sony “Sirius” handset which is rumored to make its debut at MWC 2014 instead, an event dedicated to mobile devices. Now according to the rumors, word has it that Sony could be launching the device as the Xperia Z2 which we guess would make sense given that the Xperia Z1 moniker has been taken, and the Z2 would signify that it is an upgrade over its predecessor.

    While Sony has yet to officially confirm any of this, word on the street has it that the Sony Xperia Z2 could pack some pretty impressive hardware. This includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor which is pretty standard these days in high-end smartphones, a 5.2” 2,560×1,440 QHD display which would allow it to compete with the likes of Samsung’s rumored 2K display as well for the Galaxy S5, 3GB of RAM, a whopping 20.7MP camera, and a sizeable 3,700mAh battery which would trump the Galaxy S5’s rumored 2,900mAh battery. It is also expected to feature the same water and dust protection that the original Xperia Z had. In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but hopefully Sony will have more information to share at MWC 2014, if not before.

    Four Samsung Tablets Expected In Q1, 2014

    Over the past couple of months it has been rumored multiple times that Samsung is going to focus a lot more on the tablet market next year. Apparently the company has toned down its smartphone sales expectations for the coming year, and hopes to increase its footing in the global tablet market. According to latest rumors, Samsung is likely to launch as many as four new tablets in the first quarter of 2014. With both CES and MWC falling in this timeframe, its not entirely impossible once you think about it.

    One of the four tablets expected early next year is the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite which has already been rumored a few times. It is said to be Samsung’s cheapest Android tablet to date, but still a concrete release date is not known. There not much known about the other three tablets expected in the coming year’s first quarter, but if we were to go by recent speculation, perhaps Samsung might also unveil its rumored 12.2 inch and 13.3 inch tablets which have reportedly entered production earlier this month. We have also heard speculation that a tablet with an AMOLED display is also on the cards, so this makes the fourth tablet that Samsung might unveil in Q1, 2014. Which one are you most looking forward to?
