It’s been about a year since Sony has started putting magnetic charging pins on their devices. Which are also known as pogo pins. They were on the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7 as well. Those pins are normally used for docks, so they are able to charge your device, while you’re watching a movie, or whatever with the device on the dock. it’s actually pretty cool. Of course the pogo pins are on the Xperia Z1s as well, but this new leak seems to point towards it supporting the Xperia Z2 or Sirius, more than the Xperia Z1s. Not that it wouldn’t support it anyways.
The newly leaked charging dock is the DK36, which is supposedly going to be launched with a new flagship device, that has not been announced yet. The dock was revealed in a leaked user guide which shows off the general usability of the accessory. There’s nothing too exciting about this dock, it is a dock after all. However, what is exciting is the smartphone it’s made to hold.
It appears that right now the DK30-33 are for the Xperia Z Ultra, Xperia Z1, and Xperia Z1 Compact, respectively. The DK34-35 seem like they are for the unannounced D6603 and D6503 smartphones, which are likely to be announced at Mobile World Congress next month. But this is where things get a little crazy. Is we’ve heard that the Xperia Z2 is codenamed Sirius, and i the DK36 is for the Xperia Z2, then what about the DK34-35? Are those two more phones that Sony is planning on announcing at Mobile World Congress? I wouldn’t put it past them, but it’s still a bit strange.
Hopefully this dock will launch alongside the phone. So those that purchase the phone can grab this as well. How many of you are looking to grab this dock with your new Xperia Z2, or whatever they name the Sirius device?
