Xperia XZ3

Xperia XZ3

It is equipped with a 7000-series aluminum frame that increases the durability of the phone.

Another novelty is the Side Sense, and as the name suggests, this is gesture system for the curved edges of that OLED screen.

The Sony Xperia XZ3 features a 6-inch (1440 x 2880 pixels) OLED HDR display with 18:9 aspect ratio, TRILUMINOS Display and X-Reality for mobile.

The Sony Xperia XZ3 measures 158 x 73 x 9.9mm and weighs in at 193 grams, which is quite hefty for a smartphone. There is also a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on the top. That means there is no optical zoom or telephoto lens, unlike every other high-end smartphone on the market. It has a native UFS 2.1 storage of 64 GB. The devices houses a 3,300mAh battery with USB Type-C support. The Xperia XZ3 does come with a glass back, and Sony has chose to take advantage of that, as the device does support Qi wireless charging, and is compatible with pretty much any Qi-supported wireless charging pad out there. For one-handed operation, the Japanese manufacturer has include Side Sense that gives access to key apps by double-tapping on the side of XZ3.

Changes to the Selfie Cam: Sony's sticking with a single 19-MP rear shooter, though Sony says it streamlined the interface of the camera app to help users more easily switch between photo and video modes. It can record videos at 4K resolution and 1080p slow-motion videos at 1080p resolution. The handset features a dedicated hardware button to launch the camera. The front camera got updated to a 13-megapixel f/1.9 unit with autofocus, which is pretty much what we saw on the Xperia XZ1.

The Xperia XZ3's front-facing speakers feature S-Force Front Surround with even more volume in high clarity. It has a dedicated shutter button, alongside the power and volume buttons, all situated on the right edge of the smartphone.

Many leaks were claiming that the Xperia XZ3 will ship with 6GB of RAM, but that is not the case, at least for the global version of the device that Sony introduced today. The Xperia XZ3, much like its predecessor, comes with PS4 Remote Play support, in case you're an avid PlayStation 4 gamer. Share us your thoughts by posting your comments below.
