Sony Xperia Z3 gets network license in China, alongside an amber and dual SIM versions

Sony Xperia Z3 gets network license in China, alongside a dual SIM version
The Sony L55t, aka Xperia Z3, has passed the tests of the Chinese FCC equivalent - TENAA - and has been approved for carrier network connection there, alongside the dual SIM version of this phone - L55u. The dial SIM one is a new twist, but largely expected, as most phones in China either support two SIM card connections from the box, or have versions that do it.

We've already seen the handset in the pictures below, but can only guess what improvements will Sony bring to it, besides the thinner, more compact frame, as the listed specs on TENAA's website seem to be largely similar to what we have now with the Z2 already - 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 or 805 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 5.2" 1080p display, and a 20 MP camera on the back. 

Interestingly enough, the certification authority also lists an amber version of the phone, apart from the usual black or white models. So far, we've seen the Z line in purple as the unorthodox color, but the trendy golden hue might be taking its well-deserved place now, at least in China. In any case, Sony will be unveiling its new flagship at the IFA expo in a two weeks, and we'll have boots on the ground to share the unveiling with you on the spot.
