Recently, the case renders of the upcoming Sony flagship Xperia XZ3 surfaced online which showed the phone’s new design. However, as suspected, the images were fake. Now, tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer (@OnLeaks) shared new 360-degree renders of Sony Xperia XZ3, revealing the new updated design.
The new renders of the smartphone revealed that the front will come with a tall full-screen display with 18:9 aspect ratio. While the phone has a taller display and thin bezels on the sides, the top and the bottom bezels are pretty big. On the bottom bezel, there’s Sony branding.
From the images, it seems that the phone will come with a single camera sensor on the back, along with an LED flash. Just below the camera module, there’s a circular fingerprint sensor for added security. On the right side, there’s a volume rocker and power button. There’s a USB port on the bottom and it seems that Sony has ditched the 3.5mm headphone jack.
The glass bodied smartphone has rounded corners, which seems like a welcome design change compared to the usual rectangular slab type design. The phone, which measures 158.3 x 73.08 x 9.9/10.1 mm, is expected to come with wireless charging support.
Previous leaks related to the smartphone revealed that the Sony Xperia XZ3 will come with a 5.7-inch Full HD+ display with 2160 x 1080 pixels screen resolution, just like its predecessor. Under the hood, it’ll be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor coupled with 6GB RAM.
The phone will be offered in two storage options — 64GB and 128GB and there’ll be a microSD card slot which will enable users to further expand the phone’s storage capacity. Contrary to the new information, the previous report suggested dual camera setup on the back, consisting of a 19MP primary sensor and a 12MP secondary sensor.
On the front side, the upcoming flagship smartphone from Sony will come equipped with a 13MP snapper with f/2.0 aperture for taking selfies and video calling. The device will be running Android 9.0 P operating system out-of-the-box and will be powered by 3,240mAh battery with Quick Charge fast charging support.
Sony has already confirmed a launch event at the upcoming IFA 2018 in Berlin and has already sent out media invites. While it has not confirmed the Xperia XZ3 launch at IFA, reports indicate that the XZ3 and XZ3 Compact will get unveiled at IFA 2018. The Sony Xperia XZ3 is speculated to carry a price tag of EUR 849, which is roughly $995.
