Pictures have surfaced online of Sony's upcoming handset, rumoured to be the Xperia Z2, which will be revealed at Mobile World Congress 2014.

While the Xperia Z1 was only announced in September 2013, images have been posted on the XDA Developers that show a handset with the model name D6503. The forum user who posted the image states that the device clocks in at 5.2-inches and features smaller bezels than some of its predecessors.

The poster also said that the device runs Android 4.3 and has a 20.7 megapixel camera. From the placement of the buttons and flaps, along with the Z moniker, this mysterious device will be water resistant.

It's worth taking everything with a pinch of salt for now. Thankfully, we don't have too long to wait if the reports that Sony will reveal this at Mobile World Congress, which takes place from Feb. 24-27.
