Sony Xperia Z3 benchmarked, boasting Z2 specs

Sony Xperia Z3 benchmarked, boasting Z2 specs
We can put to rest the ruminations about the Xperia Z3 vs Z2 specs difference, as yesterday the upcoming Sony flagship appeared in the GFXBench database, guised as the D6603. The answer is - seemingly the only differences between the Z3 and the Z2 will be the more compact design, and whatever software and camera-centric improvements Sony has mustered, since the listed specs for the D6603 handset seem to mimic what the Z2 already has.

A 5.1" 1080p display, quad-core Snapdragon 801 chipset, 3 GB of RAM, and a 20 MP camera - that's all in store for the Z3, as it is now on the Z2. Some recently leaked dimensions, however, show that Sony's next flagship will be thinner, and overall more compact than the largish Z2, which is a welcome change. We are also expecting some of the new Sony curved camera sensor inventory to make its way in the Z3, improving further on the photographic aspects of an already excellent in this regard handset. The Xperia Z3 should be announced at the IFA expo in Berlin at the beginning of September, alongside an eventual Z3 Compact handset.
