According to a Japanese report, a new Sony smartphone has just been certified by Japan’s device certification authorities. The smartphone for the time being is known as the Xperia Canopus which is very likely a preliminary name given to the smartphone. This smartphone reportedly carries the model number PM-0750-BV and is headed towards au KDDI which is the region’s second largest carrier. This information was originally broken by Blog of Mobile, which has further stated that the smartphone packs 4G LTE and WiMAX along with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and other standard connectivity features.
This smartphone is also believed to pack a 5 inch display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC and possibly the same camera sensor as used on the Xperia Z1 and the Xperia Z1s. Sony is rumored to launch two devices codenamed Sirius and Canopus. Although the Sirius was originally believed to be the Xperia Z1s, it is claimed that this is a new device entirely. With Canopus being revealed now, all we have to look forward to is the Sirius which could well be an Xperia Z1 successor as several reports have indicated. These smartphones should most likely be revealed at the MWC event next month. At this point, it’s hard to predict if the smartphones will remain exclusive to the aforementioned carrier, but knowing Sony, we can expect a massive global rollout.
