Sony Xperia XZ3 vs XZ2 Premium vs XZ2: Main differences
Sony's new flagship phone, the Xperia XZ3, will be available for purchase in October and it rises the natural question: How much better is it compared to previous Sony high-end models?

Internally, the XZ3 shares most of the components of the XZ2 and XZ2 Premium version. It has the same Snapdragon 845 CPU and Adreno 630 GPU, same amount of storage: 64 GB and 4 GB of RAM, which is 2 less than the XZ2 Premium. If you scroll through the specs sheet below, you'll see most other features are the same on all three phones, so what's new?

The main new feature is the QHD+ HDR OLED display that comes with the XZ3. This is a first for Sony when it comes to OLED, a premium feature it's been missing from previous flagship phones. The OLED screen is bigger, 6-inches, and the resolution splits the difference between the two other models with 1440 x 2880 pixels. The display will provide superior viewing experience, compared to its predecessors, in terms of color reproduction and high contrast ratios, thanks to the HDR support.

Another difference is the improved front camera that has F1.9 aperture for better low-light performance and can use bokeh and beauty functions at the same time. Meanwhile, the XZ3 drops the double camera setup of the XZ2 Premium and has a single 19 MP censor. 

The speakers also receive an upgrade and are now 20% larger with wider frequency range. 

Despite the bigger display and speakers, the XZ3 has the same lenght as the XZ2 Premium, but is a bit narrower. The full specs comparison between the three phones is below, but if you want to put it against other models, you can use our phone comparison tool.
