Xperia Altair name spotted in Xperia Z1 Ringtones list with other Xperia devices – Coincidence or Nomenclature ?

Going through Xperia Z1 KitKat ringtones and notification tones list, notification sounds with name “Altair”, “Castor”, “Sirius”, “Pollux” are present out of which three are the names of present Sony Xperia devices. Sirius is codename for Xperia Z2, Castor is codename for Xperia Z2 Tablet while Pollux is codename for Xperia Tablet Z whereas Altair is rumored to be codename for Xperia Z2 Compact which was recently spotted on FCC.

Notification sound for codename of flagships for H1 year 2014 are present inside the notification tones list in Xperia Z1 KitKat update, it seems a pure coincidence to us but name “Altair” has been spotted unexpectedly.

Below you can see some notification sounds whose name corresponds to Xperia device’s naming.

Xperia Tablet Z Ringtone

Below you can also see “Canopus” written; a few days back we saw Xperia Canopus making noise as it got certification in Japan but still the device Xperia Canopus is in rumors.

Xperia Castor Ringtone

Xperia Altair is very much rumored to be Xperia Z2 Compact whose certification on FCC and its front panels have been spotted on an online retailer’s site.

It can purely be a coincidence or a nomenclature from Sony for naming its new device by making a notification sound on its codename.

Xperia Z2 Compact “Altair” passes through FCC – SO-04F NTT DoCoMo model number

Xperia Z2 takes over the legacy of Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z1 took over the legacy of Xperia Z, in similar fashion it seems Sony is now bringing over Xperia Z2 Compact “Altair”, an upgraded version of Xperia Z1 Compact which was launched at CES 2014 and its sibling Xperia Z1 F was launched on NTT DoCoMo in Japan in year end 2013. It has only been 3 months since Xperia Z1 Compact came into market,

Xperia Z2 Compact is officially spotted on FCC under code name “Altair” and SO-04F NTT DoCoMo model number. No specification of Xperia Z2 Compact Altair is out yet, though we are expecting the similar specs and features like Xperia Z2 except the screen and battery size. Though it is confirmed that Xperia Z2 Compact “Altair” will use the same 20.7 MP ear camera.

Below you can see the model layout of Xperia Z2 Compact. Front camera location is similar like Xperia Z1 Compact.

Xperia Z2 Compact Altair is spotted running 14.3.B.0.53 firmware version ( android version unknown yet ). Both LTE and HSPA versions are expected to be released.

Xperia Z2 Compact “Altair” will be a hit just like Xperia Z2 among users but what major concern here is the launching date of Xperia Z2 Compact, as Xperia Z1 Compact is just 3 months old so far.

We are expecting Xperia Z2 Compact “Altair” to either come along with H2 Xperia flagship device or after mid June. What do you think guys, excited about Xperia Z2 Compact “Altair”. Let us know. Drop your comments below.
