Fan-made renders show the upcoming Sony Xperia Z3 in a rainbow of colors

Fan-made renders show the upcoming Sony Xperia Z3 in a rainbow of colors
It feels like we've all stopped talking about the Xperia Z2, and this may be something of a side-effect of the company's new policy of releasing flagships every 6 months. Sony's inability to bring the Xperia Z2 to more regions in the West probably also has something to do with that. 

Indeed, as far as Sony is concerned, it feels like all eyes are now on the upcoming Xperia Z3. Most industry watchers expect that the company will go for an official unveiling at the beginning of September, at IFA -- the same venue it used to announced the Xperia Z1. In any case, with September now a month away, we find ourselves with quite some preliminary information about Sony's next flagship on our hands, though little can be confirmed at this point. 

One exception, however, seems to be the body of the Z3, which has been making the rounds on the web for over a month now. A fan in China took up those leaks and recreated a few unofficial renders of what the device could look like in a number of different colors. The hues the Digi-wo forum member used aren't typical of Sony, which usually sticks with white, black, and purple, though we liked them all the same. Obviously, these being fan-made renders, they aren't perfect to the last detail, but they do happen to provide a glimpse into the design of the Z3, at least if what we've seen leak out already ends up being the real deal.

Check them out.

More dumb and pointless fan-made render articles of a device that has yet to be publicly announced. What we needed.

Side bezels are great... top and bottom not so much but it is not going to matter for one handed operations... and it is going to be better for landscape orientation

Well I've been trying to sell it but no real buyers yet on cl. I mainly use it with ear buds for when I run or practice soccer.

It looks much more realistic than any bezeless iPhone 6/Galaxy Note 4 concept.
