Sony Xperia Z3 Huge Battery Makes Revolution Against Other Top Range Phones
Those waiting for news about the upcoming Sony Xperia Z3 can now check out the new leaked images and information regarding the device.
Next week, the IFA 2014 event will takes place, and among the top sellers in the smartphone business, the one among many which will be presenting new devices and products is Sony. For the IFA 2014, Sony is preparing a device that has been the subject of quite a few rumor roundups. Until now, we managed to scrape up a few details about the handset, such as the fact that it will feature support for dual SIM, and also that the Chinese equivalent of the FCC has approved the device. Fresh leaks and images bring us new information about the Sony smartphone, such as the battery capacity. The Sony Xperia Z3 version captured in the leaked photos is the one intended for the Chinese market, with dual SIM capabilities. It is a known fact that the Chinese smartphone market is one of the biggest dual SIM consumers. The leaks confirm a battery unit with a total capacity of 3100 mAh. As big as it is, it is smaller actually than the one featured in the Xperia Z2, which had 3200 mAh. The reasons behind Sony opting to reduce the battery for the Z2’s successor are currently a mystery for the average consumer, as the device still awaits official confirmation itself. The Z3 hasn’t been officially announced just yet, but we’re hoping it won’t find a reason to miss the IFA 2014 in Berlin.
One of the possible reasons for reducing the battery size could be the fact that the phone’s thickness has also been reduced considerably, as the new Z3 will have a 7mm thickness, whereas the previous Z2 model featured a thicker, 8.2 mm body. Other features remain similar between the two Xperia Z models.
Despite rumors of a Snapdragon 805 processor, it seems the Xperia Z3 will be going with a slightly weaker Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processing unit, featuring four cores and clocked at 2.5 GHz. For the device’s display, we have a pretty large 5.2 inch screen, operating at a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080. Further digging for specifications, we find the more than acceptable 3 GB of RAM which are a nice finishing touch on top of a high-end specifications configuration.
The camera that will be features on the rear of the Xperia Z3 is a 20.7 MP shooter, while a secondary, 2 MP lens will be placed on the device’s front. This is a characteristic shared with its Z2 predecessor. Another common feature, shared between Xperia Z generations, is the waterproof casing that all these high-end specifications will be packaged in. The new device will break away from the standard color options and offer an Amber variant.
Alongside the Xperia Z3, Sony has plans of unveiling a few other cool devices that are bound to make an impression on those attending, such as the Compact variant of the Z3, as well as the Z3 tablet. Also, via a commercial ad posted on Sony’s official Facebook page, in which a user was captured holding a Z3 Tablet, Sony kind of unveiled its plans of putting out a smartwatch, similar to those offered by Samsung, and soon, even Apple. The watch was spotted in the ad, on the wrist of the users who is also holding the tablet device.
