More pictures of the Sony Xperia Z3 surface
On Friday, we showed you some pictures of what allegedly is the Sony Xperia Z3. This model was said to be the Sony L55t, made for China Mobile. The Snapdragon 801 is on board, which confirms the speculation that the manufacturer is waiting for the Sony Xperia Z4 to bump up the processor to the Snapdragon 805 or Snapdragon 810. That is the good thing about releasing a new flagship every six months. If something new isn't included in the upcoming release, it surely will be found in the model after that.

Besides sticking with the Snapdragon 801, Sony has apparently decided to keep the 1080 x 1920 resolution on the screen, instead of opting for a 1440 x 2560 QHD display. Perhaps that also will keep until the Xperia Z4 is released early next year.

The Sony Xperia Z3 could be unveiled in September, around the time of the IFA 2014 show in Berlin. The current Sony flagship, the Sony Xperia Z2, was introduced during the MWC in February. The Sony Xperia Z3 has slightly more rounded corners, a more easily seen front microphone, and narrower bezels. You can check it out by clicking on the slideshow below.


Thanks for the tip, Stitch!

MSFT is ashamed of the fact that it is not Windows 8( or 8.1)

Why would MS be ashamed makes no sense.

Because most are still sticking to Windows 7 and few are jumping onto their new product?

"Why would MS be ashamed makes no sense." Because it's just another example of someone ignoring Windows 8/8.1 and waiting until Microsoft gets their head out of their ass and makes a non-touch OS for their non-touch PC?

People have all always been reluctant to update their Windows E.g. when Windows 7 was released most people still didn't want to update from XP Windows 8.1 in desktop with a replacement Start Menu is basically exactly the same as Windows 7 except faster and with more features

Nope. When VISTA was out, most people still didn't want to update from XP. But when 7 came out, most upgraded within a year. By most I mean companies I've visited/worked with

"Windows 8.1 in desktop with a replacement Start Menu is basically exactly the same as Windows 7 except faster and with more features" If by "more features", you mean "more spyware", then you are right. Basically Windows 8/8.1 is an invasive data stealing POS that no one who works with any sort of valuable and/or private information should ever use. Nevermind the broken by design UI. Even if you can hide some of it with Start8 or similar software, Windows 8/8.1 will still waste a lot of time tracking the mouse for "gestures" when it shouldn't be.

Actually there is no point in discussing Xperia z3. There is no change to discuss :/

rounded corners(probabely metallic) are looking good but i am bored with this glass material , plz sony make it with full metal :D

For me completely the opposite... Glass looks cooler than aluminium and it scratches less, but this rounded, untreated sausage like frame... Ewh! I was waiting for this model, but if it looks like this I'll get a Z2 on good discount once this is out. But how is this possible that the Xperia T3 comes with a classy stainless steel frame and the next flagship not?

I think this is the best manufacturer UI. I hate the so-called "flat" design employed my Samsung and LG.

It cant be Z3 as Sony claimed they will use another design language for Z3.
