Sony Xperia XZ3 receives certification in Brazil, smaller battery revealed

Sony Xperia XZ3 receives certification in Brazil, smaller battery revealed
Sony’s current flagship smartphone may have only been announced back in February but that hasn’t stopped the brand from developing a new one. In fact, if recent information is accurate, the Xperia XZ3 may become official on August 30 at IFA. And now, helping to back these claims up, the upcoming device has just been certified in Brazil.

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.

All these years still batteries around 3000mAh. When we will have 30000mAh or 300000mAh. Technology doesn't seem to improve at all.

Well, that's ok. The XZ2 will be cheaper and I can get it unless the camera on the XZ3 smokes it and the battery life is similar. Either way, I'm in a good position.

This may be the XZ3 Compact.

That may be true. Even so, the XZ3 is supposed to be a mm thinner and have an updated design, so it is to be expected. Hope they don't go crazy on the price. I may just have to get the XZ2 after all if they do.

I guess battery is smaller because of the POLED. Then it would last same of XZ2.

We, consumers, the idiots that are buying your devices, we want bigger batteries and not razor thin phones that can't last more than 12 hours a day. Thanks and f**k you.

Sounds like a $600 phone that will be priced around $900.
