Nexus 8 Tablet Coming at end of April from Google-Asus Rumors

New rumors have started coming for Google Nexus 8 Tablet now as Google is working on it now due to low Nexus 7 2013 tablet sales world wide. Google Nexus 8 Tablet manufactured by ASUS due to launch at end of April 2014, as per latest article on DigiTimes quotes. As per sources Google is planning to ship initially 2 Million Nexus 8 Tablet units from launch.

As per reports sales of Nexus 7 2013 tablets were a bit low as 3 Million units sold till Dec 2013 due to increasing competition in 7 inch display devices. Many 5-6 inch display devices from Sony, Samsung, LG have come up recently and 6.4″ Xperia Z Ultra Tablet and Samsung’s Note devices generation are competitive devices in the same range.

To avoid price and screen size competition, Google is planning to launch Nexus 8 Tablet with 8 inch screen display, as there are not much devices in same range except Apple’s iPad Mini which has around 7.9 inch screen size.

If rumors come true we may see soon a new GoogleNexus 8 Tablet manufactured again by ASUS and hope so with calling facility this time and a higher Snapdragon SoC. Neither the existence of Nexus 8 Tablet nor its release date is confirmed for the time being, take the news with a pinch of salt.

Are you excited about Nexus 8 Tablet ? Well we are, drop your comments below.

Snapdragon SoC Wikipedia page lists Xperia Z2 Sirius under Snapdragon 805 and 800 chipsets

If you remember a few days back we saw @Evleaks reporting that a 5.2″ device named Sony Sirius with Snapdragon 800 MSM8974AB SoC processor. Well a lot speculation is going on after the Sony Sirius, it may be the Sony’ new flagship device “Xperia Z2” but is it ? Sony recently reported that Xperia Z1 will remain flagship in 2014 for sometime, but for how long ?

As per @Evleaks, Sony Sirius may debut in MWC2014 event exclusively. Just now we spotted that Snapdragon SoC Wikipedia page has listed Sony Sirius under the name Xperia Z2 in two categories of SoC i.e. Snapdragon 800 MSM8974-AB and Snapdragon 805 MSM8084.

Check below the Snapdragon SoC Wikipedia page listing of Xperia Z2 ( Sony Sirius ). [ Click to ZOOM ]

Snapdragon SoC Wikipedia page lists Xperia Z2 Sirius under Snapdragon 805 and 800 chipsets

Well if Sony Sirius or Xperia Z2 comes with Snapdragon 805 SoC, then it will be one of the the first device to get launch with it. It supports Adreno 420 GPU with 2.5 GHz quad core processor, Snapdragon’s SoC latest build.

It is still not very clear that is Sony Sirius really Xperia Z2, as information found on Snapdragon SoC Wikipedia page can’t be taken as so sure now for the time being as they have listed in under two categories which arises the doubts.

What do you think guys, is arrival of Xperia Z2 near ? Drop your comments on it.

Xperia Amami / Sony D5503 to be called as Xperia Z1S, doubt prevails ?

Just after a day when we saw Xperia Z1S photo snapped beside with Xperia Z1 from a Digi-Wo user, a new speculation has come up whether Sony D5503 will be called as Xperia Z1S or not. The moment when Xperia Z1F saw it’s release in Japan, rumors started about the existence of Xperia Z1S, international version of Xperia Z1F.

A new user on Digi-Wo has posted a fresh pic of Xperia Z1S snapped on top of Xperia Z1, comparing their size but the annotations reads “It is called Xperia Amami right, DoCoMo version Xperia Z1F as SO-02F right, but not Z1S for now“.

Rumor says Chinese version of Xperia Z1S will come as Sony M55H. Check the pic below yourself of Xperia Z1S on top of Xperia Z1. How we can say the below handset is not Xperia Z1F, well look at this another pic of Xperia Z1S with Xperia Z1, it shares some surroundings of spoon, fork and table cloth as it is.

Xperia Amami / Sony D5503 to be called as Xperia Z1S, doubt prevails ?

If it is considered to be true that Sony D5503 is not named as Xperia Z1S then what it is ? What about the recent spotting of Xperia Z1S being listed on Sony Mobile official website for a moment…

Are all these a user’s speculation ? A lot ago we saw EvLeaks leaking a pic of Xperia Z1 mini version, naming it as Xperia Z1S. Well nothing more than that has come up for the existence of Xperia Z1S yet.

We have seen that Sony D5503 do exist but is it also Xperia Z1S or not, we will keep you updated on that. Let us know what do you think…

Thanks Ben 🙂

Xperia Z1 has been officially unveiled at IFA 2013 Berlin and it was exactly same as all the leaks depicted before its official launch. Xperia Z1 is insanely powerful but what users were also expecting that “Xperia Z1 Mini” aka “Xperia Honami Mini”  will also launch at IFA 2013 but that wasn’t the case.

Not very much credible info has been posted in leaks of Xperia Z1 Mini, but this sometime something very clear has been popped up for Xperia Z1 Mini.

Note : It is not clear that how much credible above specifications of Xperia Z1 Mini are but the pic of Xperia Z1 Mini very clearly says about it’s design. Above pic can be a photoshopped material also, but something is really cooking at Sony’s camp in “Mini” version.

Xperia Z1 Mini is rumored to be launched during CES 2014 Event like in CES 2013 we saw Sony launching Xperia Z. Till now only this much we have on Xperia Z1 Mini, if anything else pops up we will let you know.

All leaked images of White Xperia Honami agian, show a clear side profile of Xperia Honami, an open 3.5 mm water proof headphone jack, longer speaker grill at bottom which is very cool as small speaker grill on side at Xperia Z isn’t sufficient for louder output.

It seems Xperia Honami sports very thick bezels even thicker than Xperia Z ( not expected this time ).

Xperia Honami aka Xperia Z1 speculations

Well it is certain that this benchmark has been taken on some initial firmware build, may be 14.1.G.1.493 firmware which was listed 5 days ago on PTCRB but today we spotted this 14.1.G.1.493 firmware has been removed from PTCRB site and now both Xperia Honami C6903/C6906 versions are missing from PTCRB listing.

It seems that as firmware improves this AnTuTu score of Xperia Z1 benchmark will improve and we expect it to atleast cross the 33K mark of Xperia Z Ultra Benchmark, as it scored 33099.

AnTuTu score has risen up to 33099 in 14.1.B.0.471 firmware update from 30233 in previous 14.1.B.0.461 firmware version

Xperia Honami aka Xperia Z1 is expected to feature 20.7 MP camera with 1/2.3″ sensor with G-Lens as seen in clear pics till now and 4k*2k UHD video capture / playback.
