We’re just a few days away from the official announcement of Sony’s newest smartphone, the Xperia Z3. But people still can’t get enough of any new leaks about the upcoming flagship of the Japanese OEM. New leaked photos show a better view of the handset, including a closer look at its battery.
The new photos show the Xperia Z3 from all angles possible, showing how much slimmer and lighter it is than its predecessor, the Xperia Z2. If the leaked pictures are the actual new smartphone, then it means it will be running on a 3100mAh battery (Z2 ran on 3200mAh). A few days ago, a certification from China’s TENAA was also leaked, with the Xperia Z3 listed as L55t and L55u models, with the difference between them being the former supports TD-SCDMA, TD-LTE network while the latter has WCDMA and TD-LTE network.
Based on the details shown in the documents, there is very little difference between the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z3 in terms of specifications. The Xperia Z3 just has a faster processor using a 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Quadcore as compared to the Z2’s 2.3 GHz. The new smartphone is also thinner at 146.5×72.4×7.35mm (the Z2 is 146.8×73.3×8.2mm) and lighter at 158.4kg (Z2 weighs in at 163kg). In terms of display, they have the same size at 5.2” but the Xperia Z3 has full HD display while Xperia Z2 uses the the Triluminos display (also in full HD). Other than those mentioned, the two smartphones have the same specs, with 3GB RAM, 16GB internal memory and 20.7MP main camera.
As to whether all these leaks are reliable, we’ll all find out on September 3, during Sony’s reveal at the IFA in Berlin. In the meantime, feast your eyes on the leaked images of the Xperia Z3.
