Sony Xperia XZ3 360-degree render reveals updated design, one rear camera
Recently, a new set of case renders claimed to provide the first glimpse at Sony’s upcoming Xperia XZ3 flagship, although the device pictured looked suspiciously like the Xperia XZ2 Premium. And today, confirming that the images were fakes, tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer, more commonly known by his @OnLeaks Twitter handle, has provided 360º renders of Sony’s device, confirming yet another small design evolution.

Starting off with the front panel design, the smartphone makes use of a tall 5.9-inch 18:9 display. However, unlike the current Xperia XZ2 which boasts a more common rectangular display, the upcoming Xperia XZ3 makes the switch over to a panel with rounded corners. This is coupled with glass that seems to have been curved over more at the edges, creating the illusion of more depth. Also, some modifications seem to have been made to the shape of the aluminum frame, with this now blending into the glass more, something that should help improve the comfort of the device when being held. Elsewhere, though, the overall look is just as expected. This means that a glass panel is included on the rear alongside a circular fingerprint scanner in the center of the panel. Plus, contradicting every recent rumor, just one rear camera is present backed up by an LED flash and laser autofocus.

In regards to what can be expected internally from Sony’s Xperia XZ3, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 will likely be powering the device alongside 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Moreover, a 3,240mAh battery and Android 9.0 P straight out of the box have previously been rumored. Also, while it's unclear which rear sensor will be included, the selfie camera will likely boast a resolution of 13-megapixels.

Currently, although Sony is yet to confirm the existence of its upcoming flagship, the Xperia XZ3 is expected to make its official debut on August 30 at IFA, followed by a release in September. Pricing wise, recent leaks suggested a price tag of over $800 is on the cards.
