Sony Xperia XZ3 will be soon unveiled at IFA 2018, the most important tech-related event of the second half of 2018 which will take place in Berlin from August 31. But now, just three days before the beginning of the trade show, the upcoming flagship is starring in fresh renders which revealed the existence of four color variants. The handset will be available in the classic Black and White color variants and in two new and original colors: Purple and Green hues. The design will not be so different from the XZ2, with a glass back curved on the borders and an aluminum frame.

But there will be an important difference on the rear glass: the presence of a single rear camera instead of a dual camera setup. But this camera will still be more impressive than the one of its predecessor because it is expected to be the newly-announced Quad Bayer sensor with a 48 MP resolution, the highest resolution ever seen on a mobile device. Above the camera, there is a laser autofocus mechanism and a LED flash, while under it there is a circular fingerprint reader placed at the center of the back cover. With the Sony Xperia XZ3, the Japanese company has decided not to follow the notch bandwagon again: the device features a classic 18:9 display with thick bezels on the upper and lower sides.

According to reports, this display will have a diagonal of 5.7 inches. Sony has already confirmed that it will hold its IFA 2018 conference on August 30, so the date in which Sony Xperia XZ3 will be announced is confirmed. Among the other specs, there should be an octa-core Snapdragon 845 chipset by Qualcomm running at a max frequency of 2.8 GHz, paired with 6 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of internal storage, depending on the variant you will choose to buy.
