First live images of Sony Xperia Z3 hit the web, shows curved sides and slim bezels
Sony is rumored heavily to announce the launch of its upcoming flagship device Xperia Z3 and its miniature variant Xperia Z3 Compact. Now, the first live images of the Xperia Z3 have hit the web and the device appears to resemble the previous generation models – Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z1 expect for minor design tweaks.
The leaked picture of the handset not only reveals the possible design, but also confirms the final specifications. As seen in the images, the Xperia Z3 will have curved sides and corners, rather than flat design as seen in Xperia Z2 and Z1. Also, the speakers are now on the left side of the phone along with microSD and microSIM card slots, with microUSB port, power and volume rockers and dedicated camera button on the right side.
From the leak, the Xperia Z3 is tipped to run on Android 4.4.4 KitKat operating system and employ quad-core Snapdragon 801 chipset ticking at 2.5GHz clock speed. Like the other high-end Sony smartphones, the Xperia Z3 will also feature a 20.7MP Exmor R primary camera sensor.
Analysing the launch pattern of the Japanese vendor, Sony usually launches two flagship devices on a six month update cycle, thereby coming up with two flagship models in a year. Though there will not be much difference between the two handsets, the second one is mainly aimed to fix the flaws that have occurred in the previous model.
If these photos are authentic, the hardware shown in them could be the early prototype of the upcoming Sony flagship model. Also, there is an increased possibility for the vendor to announce the Xperia Z3 at the IFA trade show scheduled to happen in September in Berlin.
