Could this be the first image of the Sony Xperia Togari or is it a fake?

What could be the Sony Xperia Togari (or L4) has appeared in a photo posted by French blog Nokia Day (but could very well be a fake).

The picture, which the French website received from a reader, has been published to show the Nokia Lumia 1030, but the funny thing is that a device looking like a larger Sony Xperia Z also appears in it, as you can see below. As I said, this could very well be a fake, but it could also be the first picture of the Sony Xperia Togari. To get an idea, check out the image.

As you can see, the device in the image does look very much like the Xperia Z and its Omnibalance design, “focused on creating balance and symmetry in all directions”, as Sony says. However, it seems to have the camera positioned differently than the Sony Xperia Z (which is coming to a U.S. carrier soon), and looks bigger than Sony’s flagship model – you may remember that the Sony Xperia L4 “Togari” is rumored to have a 6.4 inch display, as it is meant as Samsung Galaxy Note 3 competitor.

It’s hard to tell too much else from the image (maybe you can see something we didn’t notice), but some comments on Xperia Blog say that it’s the Xperia Z, while others tend to think what we’re seeing in the image is actually the rumored Togari.

The purported specs for the device include a better CPU than the one on the Xperia Z (Snapdragon 600 or 800), 2 GB of RAM and a 13 megapixel camera using an Exymor RS sensor, as well as NFC and an IR blaster.

What do you think? Could the device in the picture above be the Sony Xperia Togari?

    Why cant we go a little wider then Note 2 ? I think that they might have blown the size limit :-/ MEhh I’m still leaning towards the 6 inch HTC one or Note 3. …

    It’s just an Xperia Z, the cameras in the same place, and it looks exactly the same. The angle makes it look larger.

      I thought so as well until I noticed the Note 2 above and used it as a visual reference.

      • Can’t be sure that’s a note. But am sure that’s a One up there and based on that makes the Sony a Z. Sorry to disappoint you all.

  • Seriously, nobody noticed the HUGE NOKIA WINDOWS PHONE PHABLET in the background?

    rumor say 1080 display. Basic geometry say that a 5 inch 1080 display held a little closer to the face is exactly the same as a bigger display with same resolution. Togari need 2560×1440 or 1600 to be interesting.

  • May or May not be its look like Sony ZL ( Look like fake)
