New Sony Xperia Z3+ ad showcases the phone's wide-angle 20 MP and 5 MP cameras
While the Xperia Z3+ (aka Z4) may not the be the Xperia that you've been expecting, Sony still hopes that the handset will attract various users around the world. Thus, it started promoting the device's strengths in video ads. The first ad showcased the smartphone's long-lasting battery, and the second one, released today, is all about the Z3+'s cameras.

Similar to the Xperia Z3 from last year, the Z3+ has a 20.7 MP rear camera with a 25 mm wide-angle G Lens. That's wider than most lenses that other flagships are using. For example, the Samsung Galaxy S6, LG G4 and HTC One M9 all have 28 mm lenses, while the iPhone 6 has a 29 mm lens (mind you, a lower focal length - in mm - means a wider lens). The Z3+ further offers a 5 MP front-facing camera that also has a 25 mm wide lens (an upgrade from the 2 MP front-facing camera of the Z3). These wide lenses allow the Z3+ to take photos and selfies that capture more of what's around you. Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean the photos have a higher quality - we'll have to thoroughly test the new Xperia before we can pass judgements on its photography capabilities.

Cameras aside, the Xperia Z3+ features Android Lollipop, a 5.2-inch 1080p display, octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage space, and a water-resistant, 6.9mm-thin body. Sony will start selling the Xperia Z3+ in June (in both single, and dual SIM variants), for prices similar to the launch price of the Z3. Are you planning to buy one?
