Sony Xperia XZ3 receives certification in Brazil, smaller battery revealed
As is often typical with certification listings, this latest one doesn’t provide any information that confirms the previous renders of the Xperia XZ3. However, it does reveal that at least two variants are in the works and will utilize the model numbers H-9461 and H-9463. Additionally, while basically no specification details are included, the listing does reveal that a 3,060mAh battery will be included, thus representing a reduction of 120mAh when compared to the current Xperia XZ2.
In terms of what else can be expected from the Xperia XZ3, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 will presumably be powering the smartphone alongside 6GB of RAM and possibly 128GB of internal storage. Additionally, a single rear camera will be featured on the rear and while the exact details remain unclear, Sony’s new 48-megapixel sensor is a potential candidate. Also, following yesterday’s announcement of Android 9 Pie, the new software is expected to be featured straight out of the box.
Following the expected August 30 announcement, the Xperia XZ3 is expected to go on sale sometime in September and, in certain markets such as Europe, the release looks set to coincide with that of the Xperia XZ2 Premium.
