Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact dimension drawings leak, show thinner handsets

0. phoneArena 08 Aug 2014, 03:06 posted on

If you had any doubts that an Xperia Z3 is coming fast and furious about six months after the Z2 was released, this latest leak of the phone's CAD drawings should quickly disperse those. Not only that, but we also have the CAD schemes of one Xperia Z3 Compact, that is long rumored to make a cameo alongside its larger flagship sibling...

If they improve the camera performance and battery life of z2, then this phone will be a king.

So...you're saying that battery life on Z2 is poor?

That would explain thinness

That Z3 Compact size is amazing! Exactly what I have been waiting

z3 and especially z3c have a potential to sell like breads. they just need good marketing, carrier support and fast worldwide availability. GO SONY!

Yeah the Z3 compact does seem a bit interesting. Unlike the Z3.

apparently z3c is only 2mm taller and 0.7mm slimmer than z1c. so this is basically have same size as z1c with bigger screen

pa, the height is 126.98 not 129

so the z3c and z1c have same height.

IMO Sony should make a Z3 Medium
A ~135 x 70 mm phone with a ~5" screen (like the Xperia ZL)

For me if this phone doesn't pack snapdragon 805 and OIS stabillized camera it's not worth buying over the Z2.I mean whats the point,specs matter otherwise it's the same phone.

Is it just me or the Z2 just looks more eye-catching, elegant & stylish than this?...just asking;)

it's just you. z3 and z3c look to have the best omnibalance design yet and best ergonomics. no comparison. pretty amazing dimensions also. good job sony!

i hope those 4 "SEPARATE CORNERS" on the phone are not the final design. it doesn't gives a complete finished chasis look to the phone unlike z2. and top and bottom bezels... :'(

those cuts have purpose. either for antenna or absorption of impact in case the phone drops. sony is not stupid.

what about screen size ?

31. buccob (Posts: 2578; Member since: 19 Jun 2012)


Doing simple maths, assuming the screen aspect ratio is 16:9 as usual...

Z3 Compact
the width according to drawings is 54.16mm... so height will be 101.61mm. the diagonal would then be 116.59mm and that would make them:

diagonal (inches) = 4.59! amazing for such size.

Z3 does not show any screen dimensions...

If Compact has 4.6 it will be total killer, look at its size, it's shorter than Z1C, but wider also which is not so good. Can't wait to see this phone!

20. sukampret (Posts: 36; Member since: 06 Aug 2014)


the size is about the same.
z3c : 126.98 x 64.9 x 8.8 mm
z1c : 127 x 64.9 x 9.5 mm

when you hold the phone in your hand it makes a difference.
