Sony Xperia Z3 scores 37,000 on AnTuTu benchmark site?
posted by Alan F. / Jul 06, 2014, 1:51 PM
It feels like it was just yesterday when the Sony Xperia Z2 was introduced at MWC 2014. But on August 24th, it will be six months since the device was introduced. Pictures of both the Sony Xperia Z3 and Sony Xperia Z3 Compact leaked around the end of last month, along with rumored specs for the latter. And the "About" screen for both the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact leaked last week.
The information from one of those "About" pages shows that the Sony D6653 is indeed the Sony Xperia Z3. If the leak is legitimate, that would mean that Sony's next flagship is responsible for that AnTuTu score above 37,000. The Sony D6653 features Android 4.4.4 with a quad-core Snapdragon 801 MSM8974AC processor under the hood. Unfortunately, some of the pertinent information from the About screen was redacted. As we discussed late last month, there is speculation that Sony is holding back on using the Snapdragon 805 or Snapdragon 810 until the Sony Xperia Z4 is due to hit the market.
A launch of the Sony Xperia Z3 could take place late next month, or in September.
Thanks for the tip!

Six month release cycle is a dumb move. They will piss off the buyers who paid for the previous edition. In six months, they will scale back their 6 months obsolescence program.

I bought the Z2 but why would I be pissed of beacause of the 6 months release cylce? I think it is a good thing for Sony that their flagships are at least on par with the others.

Hmm this 6 month cycle is silly imo. The upgrades aren't huge and they risk upsetting their buyers. Hell ordering any Sony phone is a job in the US and will take months after its released to get. I just ordered a z2 after picking up a z1 used on Craigslist. Not much.reason.to do.so other than the z1 I got has some scratches and even small chips in the screen which has driven me crazy and the speaker on the z1 is terrible and only gets worse in the shower due to water plugging the speaker grill. Here's to hoping the z2 is at least slightly louder

the 6 month cycle is exactly the same as Samsung and HTC + other OEMS. They just call it a different name and product lineup but essentially its the same thing. I think its good that they have a refresh every 6 months. And by that i mean a REFRESH not a completely new product. This means that they have the latest processors etc. Similar to laptops and tablets that refresh when an updated processor comes out but the product is essentially the same.

if not using 805 or 810, then why even release new version now......??? i think z2 is doing better as of now, and they should concentrate on releasing their next true flagship which can challenge note 4, and successor lumia 1520

This is supposed to be a successor, but it's using the same processor as the Z2? It was bad enough that the Z2 was a minor upgrade from the Z1 because the 801 was just an overclocked version of the 800, but now they're actually using the SAME SoC. Pathetic.

that's the problem with rapid flagship push. they expect to push new flagship every 6 months but once the hardware side take a slow turn then you come with a new flagship that is using the same hardware as the previous flagship.
