Sony Xperia Z3+ features various manual camera settings (no RAW support though)
Officially announced this week as a global version of the Japan-only Xperia Z4, the Sony Xperia Z3+ will be available to buy starting this summer (possibly from June). If you're curious about the new handset's rear camera, this is a 20.7 MP one with a 25mm wide-angle G lens and, fortunately, with support for multiple manual controls.

Btekt recently played a bit with the Xperia Z3+, finding that its rear camera supports manual focus, manual white balance, manual ISO, and manual shutter speed. What the camera doesn't offer is support for RAW images, though this could be added in a future software update.

Right now, we don't know if the rear camera of the Sony Xperia Z3+ is better than the one of the Xperia Z3, so we have to wait until we get the chance to review the handset to find out.

The Xperia Z3+ is 6.9 mm thin and, like its predecessors, it's dust- and water-resistant. Other features include an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a 5 MP front-facing camera, 3 GB of RAM, and a 2930 mAh battery that can provide 2 days of usage time. The smartphone runs Android Lollipop out of the box.
