Sony launches new flagship Xperia XZ3 smartphone with curved glass display

The Sony Xperia XZ3 Finally Launches Hands on: Sony unveils the bigger, brighter Xperia XZ3 flagship phone
| 31 August, 2018, 19:10

The Xperia XZ3 packs top-end hardware, championed by a Snapdragon 845 chipset and comes with a new feature called Side Sense.

Typically, Sony launches multiple new phones at IFA including a Compact model for those looking for a smaller handset. There's a 3,300mAh battery with Quick Charge 3 and Stamina Mode in the Xperia XZ3.

The Xperia XZ3 will go on sale October 5 for £699 ($900), with pre-orders for the next-generation handset available from tomorrow, August 31.

Finally, Sony chose to go with a new colour for its Xperia XZ3, which comes in standard black and silver, its signature Forest Green and an all-new Bordeaux Red. The Sony Xperia XZ3 comes in four colour options Black, Silver White, Forest Green and Bordeaux Red. A power / lock key is included on the right-hand side of this phone, along with a physical camera switch, while the phone's volume up and down buttons sit on the left-hand side of the Xperia XZ3. "From a 5MP 1/5" Exmor R 23mm wide angle lens with f/2.2 aperture in the Xperia XZ2 to 13MP 1/3.06" Exmor RS 23mm wide angle lens with f/1.9 aperture in the Xperia XZ3, users will see a lot of difference. You'll probably need a little time to get used to it.

As for the battery, the Sony Xperia XZ3 has a 3,330mAh one, which is just a tiny bit bigger than the 3,180mAh battery in the Sony Xperia XZ2. The Xperia XZ3 does come with a glass back, and Sony has made a decision 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.


It also lets you take a photo without having to move your hand.

The XZ3 uses a 7000-series aluminum alloy, which Sony says will keep the phone lightweight while helping it resist stress and cracking. It will also ship with Android 9 Pie, giving it the most up-to-date version of Google's mobile OS.

What do you think about the design and specifications of the Sony Xperia XZ3?

The Sony Xperia XZ3 has a Snapdragon 845 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM, which, funnily enough, is exactly what the Sony Xperia XZ2 has, so don't expect vast upgrades in performance, though those are high-end specs. Also on offer is a microSD card slot for further storage expansion up to 512GB.
