Sirius, the upcoming refresh to the Xperia Z1, stars in an extensive 12-minute video giving us a detailed look at hardware and software.

This isn’t the first time the Sirius (also known by its D6503 code number) leaks, but it’s certainly the best look we’ve had so far at the device. We get to see the small changes that Sony operated to the design, which include reworked port covers and slightly different dimensions. There’s also a good preview of all the new features that Sony has built into the KitKat-based UI, though there really are no surprises over the rundown offered by XperiaBlog a few weeks back. This video is from the same YouTube user who gave us the first video look at the device last week, though that was much shorter.

To recap, the presumed specs of the Sirius/Xperia Z2 include a 5.2-inch Full HD display, a MSM8974AB SoC (Snapdragon 800) processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 21MP camera. Sony will hold a press event next Monday at MWC, and we expect to see the Sirius make an appearance at that point.
