Read the Sony Xperia Rumors 2015 edition

Welcome to the 8th year of Esato’s long running Sony(formerly Sony Ericsson) rumors. Sony created a lot of noise on what the fans would call the real comeback year for the company on 2013, This thread continues the legacy of providing the readers with the hottest news about up and coming Sony devices from the rumor land. I will be the 7th person to manage this thread after shaliron (2007), goldenface (2008 and 2011), Muhammad-Oli (2009), se_love (2010), Ricky_D (2012), and randomuser (2013).

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to my predecessors as well as the community sources for their awesome work and contributions. Here's hoping our community sources would keep sharing tasty scoops of info with us.

XPERIA Rumor Grading system reference

XR1 = possibly fake rumors, very low chance of being real
XR2 = rumor from unknown sources
XR3 = 50% chance it is correct
XR4 = rumor from known sources
XR5 = almost certainly correct!

NOTE: the XR Grading system provides an insight as to what extent that the rumors are real, these ratings do not guarantee that every specifications and or its appearance would reflect exactly as proposed by the thread discussions, let’s keep in mind that these are RUMORs first and foremost, so take everything that you read here with a grain of salt. The sources are not liable for any inaccuracies on the details between their shared info and the final product.
