Some Sony Xperia Z3 specs apparently confirmed by @evleaks
Lately, we’ve heard a lot about Sony’s next-generation high-end Xperia smartphone: the Xperia Z3. While Sony obviously doesn’t want to confirm the existence of the Z3 yet, reliable leakster @evleaks allegedly knows some of the specs the handset will offer.

Reportedly, the Xperia Z3 will sport a 5.15-inch display with 1,080 x 1,920 pixels - so it’s not going to be larger than the 5.2-inch 1080p screen of the Xperia Z2. The new smartphone should be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.4GHz, helped by an Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB of RAM. There’s 16GB of memory inside, while the rear hosts a 20.7MP camera, and the front includes a 2.1MP camera. Android 4.4.4 KitKat should be on board. All in all, the Z3 doesn’t appear to be too different from the Z2, although it’s said that its body is a bit thinner (only 7mm).

Rumor has it that Sony intends to announce the Xperia Z3 in September. That’s also when the company might unveil a smaller version of the new device, possibly called Xperia Z3 Compact. Until we hear more on this, you can see some photos that allegedly show the Xperia Z3 below:

I doubt it... Sony will make other changes I am SURE of it.

But if this is why Verizon hasn't dropped the Sony Xperia Z2, then I will definitely get this for my wife.

I am going to wait to see what happens. If the Sony Xperia Z3 comes to Verizon then I will definitely buy it, if not then the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be the phone for my wife.

I know, she has been waiting for a long time, she right now is using my rooted HTC Droid DNA...

She is all good. She wants to get a new phone when the Sony Xperia Z3 comes out. If not she will be happy with the Samsung Galaxy S5.

I had hope upon hope that they would pair the Z2 withe the Z2 tablet at Verizon. We got evidence of it when we started carrying some of there accessories way early. But, just the tab.

I want the Z3. But as of right now I don't see anything else on the Z2 remotely hinted at any where.

No reason for me to jump on the z3 with specs like my z2. I'm still holding on to something new with the z3

No. They can't put 20mp sensor in ZL body. It's impossible. That 20mp camera takes a lot of space that's why big bezels

Yeah because that camera expands into all the bezels... Don't be a jerk please. Plus the module itself is not that much bigger than something else.

How the f... did the camera become responsible for the bezel? Everybody knows it's because of the micro-sim.

40. ArtSim98 (Posts: 3535; Member since: 21 Dec 2012)


Yeah sure. Because adding that nano sim they would immediately cut down all the bezels. There is no single reason for them.

Or were you just sarcastic? That may I never know. Unless you tell me of course. :)

If they don't increase the bezels the thickness will increase jerk

Now what does this have to do with your original comment?

I think he means that the sensor is placed in the corner of the bezel and almost take the depth of the phone the bottom bezel is the same cause of the omni balance design. You should check ta teardown of the z2 you'll see that the screen won't fit with that thickness on top of the sensor

evleaks has been on a bit of a cold streak lately. If anything this just looks like a Z2 variant.

I wouldn't worry, Sony will probably be releasing a smapdragon 805 phone soon enough.

Wow that dude is owning a Lenovo laptop? Lenovo laptops are waaay underrated. One of the best lappys out there.

Back to topic, its like Z2 in a Lumia body.

Exactly like Lumia body and less attractive than Z2. Disappointed by Sony. No spec upgrade, only design downgrade. And why is it uglier than the much cheaper Xperia T3?
Only good news, it will push the price of the Z2 down, which will become an amazingly good value for money flagship.

Hey its just still a prototype, maybe it'll get better design. Maybe Sony is dipping in WP waters as we speak.

If its gonna use that body, maybe it will be lighter. Glass are heavy compared to plastic ya know and its still got that unibalance or whatever they call it design. Lets see what the final design will look.

But compared to Z2, that prototype is ugly.

Other than a nice rear camera it seems disappointing.
