Another day, another smartphone rumour. This time it’s the Sony Xperia Z3.
Following this year’s earlier release of the Sony Xperia Z2, the expected follow-up should be hitting shelves later on this year, and rumour has it that it’s already been spotted. Following the trends of other smartphones this year, it is likely to be with us in September at a cost of AU$1006 SIM free.
So what can we expect? Well, chances are that Sony won’t be changing its display too much as it will be using a 1080p screen. The manufacturer may also be using a shatterproof screen for the device, which if true, makes it all the more appealing.
Aesthetics-wise, there isn’t much change from its predecessor, the Xperia Z2, if leaked images are anything to go by. The pictures also suggest that the Xperia Z3 will have 20.7 megapixel camera lens, which is the same as the Xperia Z2. There will also be a 2.1 megapixel front-facing camera for the selfie lover.
Other specifications that have been leaked include a 4.5-inch 720 x 1280 pixel display, and a quad-core 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 MSM8974AC processor.
Chances are that the Xperia Z3 will be released during September’s IFA trade show in Berlin, which, as anyone who knows their smartphones will know, comes at a pivotel time for the electronics industry.
With Apple’s iPhone 6 rumoured to be released during the next month alongside the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, it’s definitely going to be an interesting time.
