More Sony Xperia Z3 photos show up, non-removable battery confirmed
In case you haven’t seen enough leaked photos showing the unannounced Xperia Z3, we now have a new set of images that reveal, once more, Sony’s upcoming handset. This time, some of the photos show the Z3 disassembled - this confirming that the smartphone has a non-removable battery (apparently a 3100 mAh unit).

It seems that the Xperia Z3 that’s being pictured here is a dual SIM variant that’s most likely made for China.

While the Z3 appears to be significantly thinner than the Xperia Z2 (allegedly measuring only 7mm), its specs aren’t too different from those of the current flagship. Reportedly, the new Xperia features a 5.2-inch 1080p display, quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz, 3 GB of RAM, and a 20.7 MP rear camera. Needless to say, the Z3 will be water-resistant, just like the Z2 and Z1.

Sony will host a press conference next week at IFA 2014, and we expect to see the Xperia Z3 then, alongside the Xperia Z3 Compact, and a new Xperia tablet. We’ll be there to bring you all the news as they happen.

if you have ever opened up any xperia z devices you would have noticed that instead of earpiece they have loud speaker.... so yea its stereo speaker for sure. it has 2 loud speakers.
the bottom loud speaker is hidden so cant tell if its still the old technology or something has changed.

Wireless charging is very slow and unreliable right now. I would rather have the pins that this phone has on the side.

Wall hugger? I ran my Z2 for 3 days straight with light usage. And 1 and a half day with heavy usage. I think I can live with that kind of battery life.

Thing is, SONY has committed to waterproofing and a removable battery and waterproofing do not co-exist very well. I've had military pieces that have had waterproofing and removable batteries and to do it right, it would add some thickness and weight that SONY does not feel is worth it.

Every time my battery drains out I change the battery

So its easy for me to carry 1 extra battery as its more lighter than charger so I dont have use it while charging which results some heating

Also we can have accessories for making the phone waterproof like apple and other flagship have waterproof cases n covers

Well everyone has different priorities so this thing is not arguable.

Yes I do agree that

But what happens if the battery goes bad or the usb connections goes whacky like it does in the GS3? A removable battery and seperate batt charger saved me with that phone. Not worth spending $100 for repair when my contract is up in OCT and I'll be getting anew phone. $14 for 3 batteries and a charger seems like a reasonable fix and they last just as long as the stock Samsung battery. I have 3 fully charged batteries ready to go at all times. CAn't do that with a non-removable battery. MAny of these newer phones are VERY appealing EXCEPT for the battery issue. THAts when I say it's either Samsung or LG. Until batteries charge super fast and jump significantly in reliability I'll stick with phones with removable batteries.

That's where YOU have to decide your priorities and if the Battery issue is more important than the other features, you will need to pick a phone with removable batteries. You can always have an external battery ready. The only issue for me is if the battery actually goes bad before I am ready for a new phone. That's what was nice about ONE year contracts. Most phone Batts would last for one year easy but some have a problem stretching it to two.

Have you heard about the explode in the phones which are having removable batteries because of the third party batteries. If you need to use spare battery please use the genuine One.

Well then it's not really heavy usage, is it. My note 3 has Exellent battery life, yet some days when I tether, download and use the phone I have to charge it two times. So it's not really heavy when you get more then one day out of it, unless you have a screenshot that shows 36h display on time.

I was using removable battery phone but I gave up to use second battery because I did not want to spend the wasting time for charge the second battery.

Sony does that for their 2nd flagship of the year. So the 1st flagship is more worth upgrading to when the 2nd flagship comes out IMO

That was usually the case but the z1 was more worth upgrading than the z2 as the only improvement was the speaker and display the difference between s800 and s801 isn't really big.
The z1 had a better screen/camera/sound/ip rating/ s800 compared to s4 pro is a big improvement and a much better battery life. With the z i struggled ti get past 1 day with the z1/z ultra its very easy even with heavy usage.
Hoping they will release another ultra worth upgrading for me

I think the Z3 Compact is the one with more wow factor...

Admitedly this one is not much different from Z2... but Z3 Compact is a different beast.

I wouldn't call it piece of crap :P I would get this phone before I get a lot of other phones that's out right now. But Z2 FTW!!!!!!!!!!!

Well yea of course it's a good phone. But definitely seems to be the worst upgrade in the Z series history. I still have some hopes towards it though :)

Boringgg. It's time for them to change the design, I am not saying going through an overhaul, but they have used the exact same design for the 4th time now, it needs a little bit of refreshing, and Sony showed us before that they are able in producing sexy phones.
And what's up with the specs? They are almost identical to the Z2!!
