At this point pretty much everything about Sony's next flagship phone has been spoiled except for the name. The Xperia D6503 "Sirius," which will almost certainly be getting a much less interesting title when it's officially revealed, has had multiple large leaks. A new 12-minute video shows off pretty much everything about the included software.

The video comes from the same YouTube user who posted the last big leak, and it looks like it's the same phone running the same software. This time he's kindly shown us the outer casing, which uses Sony's standard industrial design adapted into a slightly more rounded shell. The color is blue-gray, though given the recording quality it's hard to tell what it will look like in person. Sony's typical waterproof port layout is on display, including a dedicated dock port (switched to the left edge) and a physical shutter button. A previous leak detailed unconfirmed specs that are slightly better than the Xperia Z1: Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, 5.2-inch 1080P screen, and Sony's 20.7MP rear camera.

If you're too impatient to comb through the video, here's a hit list of some of the more interesting features on display:

  • Android 4.4.2
  • Refreshed Sony UI
  • New music widgets on homescreen and lockscreen
  • Xperia Connect - screen mirroring between the phone and Sony tablets
  • Dual Shock 3 controller compatibility
  • Auto-answer calls by raising the phone to your head
  • Simplified alternate homescreen
  • Glove mode
  • Tap to wake
  • 4K, timeshift, background defocus, and other various video recording options

Given the apparent completeness of this software build and Sony's upcoming press conference, I would definitely expect an announcement at Mobile World Congress. The phone in the video used UK English, so an initial launch in the UK and Europe (at least) seems likely.
