Sony D6603 smartphone, possibly the Xperia Z3, seen at the FCC
posted by Nick T. / Jul 16, 2014, 3:27 AM
The Sony D6603 is an Xperia smartphone model that we've been hearing rumors about for months, and while we are still unsure as to what exactly we are dealing with, we now have another piece of the puzzle to throw on the table.
The said handset is now listed at the FCC under the IDs PM-0800 and PM-0801, which stand for model names D6603 and D6616 respectively, according to this certification report from last month. These two models appear to be identical hardware-wise and could be variants of the same phone, but tailored for different markets or carriers.
No other hardware details about the Sony D6603 are listed at the FCC. According to leaks, however, it is going to offer a 1920 by 1080 pixel display, a 20.7MP camera, a quad-core Snapdragon 801 SoC, 16GB of storage, and 2GB of RAM. Speculation has it that the Sony D6603 could be the Sony Xperia Z3 and that the actual RAM inside the phone could be more, but we have little evidence in support of that claim. Guess we'll have to wait and see.
That's all for now, folks. If we come across any new details about what the Sony D6603 could be, we'll pass it along. In the meantime, feel free to check out our Sony Xperia Z3 rumor round-up.

Has to be 3GB of RAM. Can't go back. I'm glad they kept the 1920 x 1080 resolution. Longer battery life should be a priority than anything else.

We need a Z3 compact with a 1080p 4.5" screen but the bezels should be reduced so that it can fit in the same body of Z1 compact. Other specs such as Snap 801 and 2GB should also be included.

That's what I'm hoping for, although I won't be too disappointed if it's "only" a 720p screen.

4.5" 1080p displays barely exist (only one phone from Sharp) and are too expensive to manufacture. If Sony put a 1080p display on the Z3 Compact you will all complain about the price again. People are not realistic. They want flagship level specs priced at

If it has other specs to match the "big" Z3... I would definitely take a 720p display at 4.5"... or 4.3" or 4"! shrink. that. freaking. screen. already! Extra thickness... no problem... not interested in having a thin, brittle device.

Well I want a Z Ultra 2 upgrade to my current Z Ultra. But it does not look like Sony will do that. I think it will be hard to go back to just a 5.5 inch screen. The only real benefit would be a better camera.
