Sony Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact rumor round-up: price, release date, specs, and features

0. phoneArena 02 Sep 2014, 03:30 posted on

No, you got that one right. We're, indeed, about to discuss the upcoming Xperia Z3, and, alongside it, the Xperia Z3 Compact. And no, it's not too early, as notable information about the two has already found cracks within Sony's hopelessly insecure internal world, not to mention that, as fans of the company will know, it has officially transitioned towards a 6-month flagship release cycle...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

Sony should make a multi-carrier model that they can sell directly as well through the carriers.

Well going by what they did with the Xperia Z2 6503 then it's safe to say that it should be the same with the Z3/ Z3c. They just need to get it out there.

A good starting point....a big glass brick that looks pretty much the same as the Z2 with even less curves

I mean the first in the first slideshow. Which says "This, allegedly, is the Xperia Z3". Sorry I was a bit misleading.

Oh! Nice catch there. It is the T2 Ultra. Edited.

Chris.P please edit the size of the Z3 Compact... according to the CAD drawing is 126 mm, not 129.

Many people commented this, but the info was never updated in any of the articles

No it's not the T2 Ultra. There are small differences if you look closely.

Like what? Only weird thing is that it seems to be running the old Xperia UI, which I guess the T2 U doesn't have.

All the sensors, speakers, buttons, even the headphone jack are in the same place and have the same form.

Actually it does use the old UI. So no doubt. It's the T2 Ultra.

Bezels about the only thing I disliked on the Z2. Glad to see the're listening to reason.

Yes... either ZL2 or Z3 Compact for me

I think the ZL2 size is pretty good I hate how those versions only stay in Japan

Hope they make a curved back design, flat back may look sexy for some, but it is uncomfortable. Also the omnibalance design is starting to look stale tbh.

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


I like how the Z2 feels in the hands. But yeah as beautiful as the current design is, it would be nice to see a little difference just for some change.

18. StraightEdgeNexus (Posts: 3689; Member since: 14 Feb 2014)


Yeah but those sharp corners hurt and make it uncomfortable, atleast from the few days of experience using the Z2. Also the big bezels are spoiling its looks.
BTW Do you work or still school?

Doesn't hurt me at all.

High school. Or senior high school or I dunno what would be the same in the US.

The sharp corners are gone in the leaked Z3 and Z3 Compact, but yeah I agree, maybe throw in a curved back. Or just change up the design altogether.

I think the Z3 will have 5.5 screen while the Z3 mini will have a 4.7" screen just like the rumored upcoming iPhone 6.

I hope it looks EXACTLY like the thumbnail. That design looks great with the small bezels and centered camera!
