The successor to the Sony Xperia XZ2 has been in the news for a couple of months now. We have seen leaks, hands-on photos of the device, and heard a lot about it. The Sony Xperia XZ3 will be yet another flagship smartphone from the company.
A new leak has surfaced online, which shows all the specifications of the upcoming smartphone. Although we have seen leaked spec sheets before, it is always nice to see if all the different leaks match up. The more it matches, the better the chances of it being true.
Sony Xperia XZ3: Leaked Specifications
The latest leaked specifications tell a slightly different story when compared to previous leaks. So far, we have heard that the Xperia XZ3 might come with a 48MP rear camera, but that may not be the case.
According to the new leak, the phone will have a dual-camera setup similar to the one found on the XZ2 Premium. To be honest, there seems to be not much difference between the XZ3 and the XZ2 Premium. Or, it is possible that all the leaks are false, and we will get a totally different phone from Sony.
As you can see from the leaked image, the alleged Sony smartphone will have a 5.7-inch Full HD+ display, unlike the QHD display on the XZ2 Premium. So, that begs the question, is this new phone really a flagship, or just a slight improvement over the XZ2.
Nevertheless, let us talk about the leaked specifications. Most of it matches with the previous leaks. Such as, the phone is said to come with the Snapdragon 845 chipset, and pack up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. A microSD slot will also be available to expand storage up to 400GB.
Sony Xperia XZ3: Camera and other features
The camera information detailed in the new leak is dfferent, like we said earlier. Here, it says that the Xperia XZ3 will come with a dual camera setup, with a main 19MP unit, and another 12MP sensor. None of them seem to be a zoom lens. At the front, you can expect a 13MP camera for selfies.
Yes, the alleged Xperia XZ3 has better hardware than the XZ2, but not that much better. We can only see improvements in the camera department for the most part. The battery is only slight bigger at 3240mAh, and this phone seems to have a headphone jack. The rest of the features are pretty much the same, even the design looks identical. And it has to be, since the leaks say that the phone will get a 5.7-inch display, just like the XZ2.
Now, we are not sure what to believe, and we do not even know when Sony will launch the new smartphone. Rumors had pointed to an August 30th release date, but so far, Sony hasn’t revealed any information. That might change though, and we could have a new Sony flagship device in the next few weeks.
Sony has been in the gutter the last few years, and it isn’t doing much better now. Its smartphone business isn’t doing well at all, and that’s because there hasn’t been any new innovation. Even the latest Sony Xperia phones have thick bezels, and single camera units, and so on. The company has to innovate, and they could do that with the Xperia XZ3. Let’s hope that we see a phone with super thin bezels and all the features mentioned above, that would be great.
