Sony Xperia XZ3 leaked press render shows off traditional display, glass-metal combo build

Sony Xperia XZ3 leaked press render shows off traditional display, glass-metal combo build
We know Sony plans to launch another flagship this year, but this is the first time when we get a clear look at the phone. The Xperia XZ3 is expected to go official this fall and judging by the recent leaked render it will not bring too many changes design-wise.

Also, the picture proves that Sony Mobile likes to keep it traditional, so don't expect to see a notched display or a dual camera, not that adding these features would be a bad thing. At the moment, the audience is split into two when it comes to the notch, so Sony doesn't want to alienate its fans just yet.

We're also seeing that there's a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone, along with a very small flash and another sensor that could represent part of Sony's Hybrid focusing technology. Also, the phone does seem to feature a full-front glass design, while the back of the phone is supposedly made of metal.

As far as the hardware inside the Xperia XZ3, we don't have too many details about the phone, except that it will be equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB RAM, and 128GB internal storage.

Last but not least, the date on the display suggests the phone might be announced on August 30, although Sony hasn't yet confirmed any events for that timeframe yet.

Bring back jack. Why started removing a good old thing. Bluetooth can't provide audio like 3.5 jack and nobody wants another device to charge every day

Hi ... About the jack I heard it was not decision from Sony Mobile. They sell more flagships than midranges. Orders came from above, sales of wireless headphones are better than wired. Mobile division had no choice..

One of the best designed phones this year tbh. Curved display, no notch, symmetrical bezels, perfect size. I love it. But off course, Sony will look for a major way to gimp it as usual.

So it is likely an XZ2 with the new 48mp sensor. It'll be interesting to see where they price it.

New 48MP does not have DRAM inside, not capable of 960fps.

The 48MP camera has a lot more use than a gimmicky 960fps for the vast majority of users.

I'm aware that most Sony fans dislike the new design. But i actually like it. One thing i hate is the fp sensor placement. Way too low for most users I feel. And the removal of headphone jack. Urgh. Why Sony??

As the time go pass and tried different ratio phones. I tend to lean towards traditiional ratio 16:9. It feels solid in hand. Only one thing needs to be done which is trim down top and bottom bezzels.

I hope SONY get back to their position, they make some amazing devices but general consumer never get to know that there is SONY in the market too.

Hmm... Comparing to my XZ2 it looks like this phone will have a small but significant design change: In the XZ2 the back is too curvy and the phone looks very asymmetrical between relatively flat front and very curvy back. Rumour has it that the XZ3 will be about 1mm thinner, and from this picture it's pretty clear that the screen is curvier and the frame is pushed towards the back, so the rear will inevitably be less curvy and less protruding. So the handset will most likely look overall flatter and more symmetrical. It will also probably be less prone to slipping off flat surfaces and spinning around itself when lying on table.

If this is true then maybe dual cameras is exclusive to the premium range only.

Not bad. But at this point, all flagship should have on screen fps. Come on now.

What? Haha, that's more than wishful thinking. First, the more promising ultrasound technology is not even out yet. All in-display fps are still optical. Second, you think that Sony with their minuscule presence on the market can make any realistic deals with suppliers for such emerging technologies? All the supply must have already been snatched by the big fish. Sony can use such technologies only once they become commonplace. Otherwise it would cost them a fortune to outbid competitors.
