If Sony released a Xperia SP successor, how would you want it to be?

Imagine that Sony asks you, Xperia SP user, to give them ideas for the Xperia SP successor. Which features, design elements and name would you propose? Remember, Xperia SP is a mid range phone (or high-mid range), so don't lose control with your suggestions!

I would suggest: Xperia ZP.

Spec-wise, it would have:

-Snapdragon 600 with Adreno 320 GPU.
-2GBs of RAM (1.5GBs sounds more logical though)
-13mpx camera with flash, 1Mpx front camera (or 8mpx rear camera as long as it's as high quality as the one on Xperia P)
-4.6" HD IPS screen

For the design, I would like something between Xperia P (which I love) and Z1 compact, so it would be a minimalistic phone made mostly out of aluminum, but with the shape of the Z1 compact. Also, why not make it water-proof? As it seems to be the trend nowadays.


Anyways, share your thoughts. Remember, keep it real! (That means no 4K displays, 3GBs of RAM or Snapdragon 805 >_> ).

1)It would have the same SoC just to lower the price
2)8mp camera with a better lens
3)1.2mp front camera and not that crappy vga camera we have
4)2500mAh battery
5)1.5GB ram
6)8GB internal with a sd card slot
5)5" True HD IPS screen with better viewing angles
6)A led illumination strip all around the phone(party )
And the best...

This sounds like something that can be done (minus the software ).

I personally would like them to kill the illumination bar...or at least make it smaller, it takes too much space from the phone and makes it bigger than what it should be.

This sounds great too, minus the 5" 1080p. In my opinion, this resolution will be a thing for mid rangers next year, when Quad HD become more common on high end phones. And maybe it's just me, but 5" is way too big for me...unless they make as compact as an ZL.

Also, I don't know about you guys, but despite how well it runs, don't you feel S4 Krait is getting outdated? There are 2 or 3 games that are no longer compatible with my SP.
