Apart from the Z3 smartphone, which is yet to launch soon, Sony is also working on an entry level smartphone that will sport a 6.1 inch screen. The proof comes from the GFXBench tool that has listed the phablet with model number D2203 on its database.
The specs of the device have also been revealed. Thus, it appears that the D2203 will come with a 6.1-inch FWVGA (480 x 854) display. It would be powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 (MSM8926) chipset and Adreno 305 graphics. There would be 1GB of RAM, 4GB internal storage (microSD support is likely), 5MP rear camera and a VGA front-facing camera.
Further the site shows the device with Android 4.4.2 OS and it will apparently have Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, and Wi-Fi as connectivity options. There is no mention of the battery or a microSD slot. Also, it will not be a dual SIM phone.
However, since these specs have chances of getting changed, you might not want to be hundred percent sure about the phone. Companies tend to change the specs depending on the tests and market research, so it would be better to wait for other confirming leaks to arrive before assuming it to be a final sepcs of the phone.
Sony has also not spoken about the name of the handset at the moment nor has it formally talked about the device in the past.
Anyways, if it does come with the same specs which has been laid down in the Benchmark site, than this particular device would probably be the company's first budget phablet. Information pertaining to the pricing and availability are still mystery at the moment, but it is very likely to hit the Asian markets initially followed by global release.
