Here's how the Sony Xperia Z3 may look next to the Galaxy S5, LG G3, HTC One (M8), and other smartphones (size comparison)
We live in a world where it is hard for a secret to stay one for long. Smartphones are not an exception – new models often leak weeks, if not months, prior to their official announcement. Take the Sony Xperia Z3 for example – we are pretty sure that we know its announcement date, most of its specs, and what it will look like. All of this information has been leaked already. 

Speaking of Sony Xperia Z3 leaks, its dimensions leaked several days ago, along with a sketch of the handset. These not only confirm earlier speculations that the smartphone would be thinner than its predecessor (at 7.3 mm vs 8.2 mm respectively), but give us give us a chance to compare Sony's upcoming flagships to its rivals, at least size-wise. What you see below is a representation of what the Sony Xperia Z3 will look like next to flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S5, LG G3, and HTC One (M8). We've thrown in the Xperia Z2 as well for good measure.

The Sony Xperia Z3 is expected to be announced officially on September 3, just a couple of days before IFA 2014 kicks off in Berlin. Until then, here's our Sony Xperia Z3 rumor round-up where we've put together all the details that we know so far about Sony's upcoming flagship.

I really hope for their own sake that they have some surprises to show with the Z3.

Because if the specs are same and screen a bit smaller it would be a downgrade...

I'm hoping that this might be just a variant of Z2 or that the specs are fake.

Yeah, just like Z2 on Z1, where it incorporates Active Digital Noise Cancellation technology. Wonder what will Sony bring into the table. OLED perhaps?

thank god there will be a 'mini' version of this. let's hope they don't sacrifice much of the specs than its much larger sibling.

Those bezels at the top needs half an inch reduced

Same goes to the bottom

Then it will be a killer looks

Agree. Needs a smaller footprint.

It can't be done without sacrificing the front facing stereo speaker setup. So stop your whining sissy hands.

Hopefully it looks more beautiful. The Z2 was decently good.
