Sony Xperia Z3X rumor – a powerful phone with a powerful camera

Sony Xperia Z3X rumor – a powerful phone with a powerful camera
Sony's latest flagship – the Xperia Z3 – has only recently been released and we are already seeing rumors on yet another super-powerful Xperia device. The rumors dub it "Xperia Z3X" and it seems that it's going to be a powerful workhorse of a phablet with an equally powerful camera.

Now, we've heard about Sony's curved camera sensors before – a bleeding edge tech that's supposed to simulate the curvature of the human eye, providing much more realistic pictures. Rumors that have been floating around since July, point towards this phone as the fist device to be equipped with the new sensor.

With a 2/3" sensor with a wide F1.2 aperture, it seems Sony is making plans to seriously pull in some photo-fans' interest. But the latest rumor about the Z3X shows us that the device may actually be aiming to please a wide spectrum of power users, not just cameraphone aficionados.

Indeed, an AnTuTu listing for a phone, dubbed Xperia Z3X, has surfaced, and it shows some pretty monstrous hardware specs. Starting with a Snapdragon 810, coupled with the pretty impressive 4 GB of RAM, a 6.2" QHD display, and the powerful Adreno 430 GPU.

Now, a couple of screenshots that could easily be fabricated mean next to nothing. Still, assuming that these rumors are true, it would be interesting to see whether this new handset will be a branch of the Xperia line (a replacement of the Z Ultra phablet branch, maybe?), or will take the place of the Xperia Z4, which should refresh the Z3 in 6 months (as per Sony's 6-month flagship cycle).

At 6.2" I think you mean iPad Mini killer maybe? No-one I know would use something that large as a "phone", this isn't the early 90's any more.

I'll ask Sony's Senior Vice President in charge of Procurement - he owes me a favour, I'll see if he can get me a sample of his enormous phone... Too cheeky to ask? :\
