Samsung recently announced their much-awaited flagship smartphone Galaxy Note 9. Now all eyes are on the next flagship smartphones from other big OEMs including Sony, LG, Apple, and others. Today we have another exclusive leak of Sony's XZ3 shared by MySmartPrice which not only reveals the design but also the color variants. The new leak suggests the Sony's upcoming flagship Xperia XZ3 will be available in four striking color variants including Green, White, Burgundy, and Black.
Most likely all the colors won't be available in all regions instead the company could offer selected colors for selected markets. Unlike most of the latest smartphones, the XZ3 doesn't have a notch at the top of the display instead it has complete bezels design. However, the bezels are thin as opposed to earlier Sony branded smartphones.
The Sony XZ3 features a unibody metal design whereas the predecessor has glass and metal sandwich design. Despite having trimmed bezels, the XZ3 doesn't have as thin bezels as the latest smartphones from other OEMs. The rear side is adorned with single camera sensor with LED flashlight. The circular fingerprint scanner is in the center below the camera setup.
All physical buttons including volume controllers, power button, and the shutter button are on the right edge. As far as specs are a concern the Xperia XZ3 is rumored to have a 5.7-inches IPS LCD display with Full HD+ screen resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels. The Qualcomm's Octa-core Snapdragon 845 SoC will be powering the device with 6GB RAM and built-in native storage is 64GB. Like its predecessor, it will support hybrid dual SIM slots.
Initially, we heard rumors the XZ3 could have dual rear cameras but the exclusive image confirms single rear snapper. As per recent benchmark listing the primary rear snapper will be a 47MP sensor with PDAF and laser autofocus. However, it is not confirmed yet that's why we will recommend to take it with a grain of salt. Up front, the selfie camera will be a 13MP sensor. It will be an IP68 certified smartphone to be on par with the latest premium smartphones. For connectivity, the device has a USB-C port and a 3,240mAh battery cell will keep its lights on.
