Sony Xperia XZ3 Leaked Render

Just a day before we shared the exclusive CAD renders of Sony’s upcoming Xperia XZ3 smartphone. As per the renders shared with us by popular tipster Steve Steve Hemmerstoffer aka @OnLeaks, the device is expected to feature a single rear camera instead of a dual camera set up as suggested by some of the leaks in the past. Now a H8416 device has popped up on GFXBench sporting a single camera of 47MP. The benchmark listing usually have a minor discrepancy with actual specifications, so we expect the XZ3 to sport a 48MP IMX586 sensor that Sony recently unveiled. This sort of confirms that Xperia XZ3 will sport a single camera instead of dual camera. Maybe, Sony is working on another device with dual camera set up which was leaked accidentally as Xperia XZ3.

Speculated Specifications of Xperia Xperia XZ3:

Here are some of the expected specifications of the yet-to-be launched phone based on the earlier leaks,

  • 5.7-inch Full HD+ display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC
  • 6GB of RAM
  • 64GB and 128GB internal storage options
  • 3,240mAh battery capacity
  • 13MP selfie camera
  • Android 9.0 P OS

The device is expected to be IP68 certified for water resistance and will measure 158.3 x 73.08 x 9.9/10.1 mm. It is also expected to sport a glass back and will have support for wireless charging. The rear of the device will feature circular fingerprint sensor placed at the center. The phone will lack 3.5mm headphone jack so you’ll need to carry an extra accessory in case you wish to use the headphone with 3.5mm jack.

In terms of pricing, the Xperia XZ3 is expected to arrive with a price tag EUR 849 which is roughly USD 995 and INR 68,500.

What we know for sure is that the XZ3 will be launched at IFA 2018 event which will be held from 31 August to 5 September at Berlin, Germany. We are almost a month away when all of the confusion regarding its specifications will be sorted. In the meanwhile, you can expect more information and/or renders to leak.
