  • The Sony Xperia XZ3 Finally Launches

There's a whisper on the wind that Sony's event at IFA 2018 - that's the one happening later today - will see the firm unveiling a new flagship dubbed the Sony Xperia XZ3.

Sony Xperia XZ3 specifications, availability and more Sony hasn't revealed the launch price of the Xperia XZ3 but the Xperia XZ2 had a slightly over-the-top pricing. The Triluminous HDR screen uses Sony's X-Reality Engine. In terms of memory, it features 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Which can be expanded via micro SD, provided you decide to forgo the second SIM slot.

Sony still hasn't gone down the dual camera route though, with the main camera on the smartphone featuring a single 19MP Motion Eye sensor. The similarity is especially noticeable from the back side where the same is located only one camera, led flash, laser auto focus and a fingerprint scanner. The front camera got updated to a 13-megapixel f/1.9 unit with autofocus, which is pretty much what we saw on the Xperia XZ1. And now, a day before IFA 2018 kicks-off in Germany, Sony has further expanded its portfolio of XZ series smartphones by announcing Sony Xperia XZ3.

Other features include: 3,330mAh battery, Android 9.0 (Pie), Gorilla Glass 5, USB-Type C, Bluetooth 5.0, IP65/68 dust/water proof. There is a 3300mAh battery with support for Quick charge.

McConnell forms 'gang' to talk honoring McCain, doesn't mention renaming Russell

The Sony Xperia XZ3 will actually ship with Android 9 Pie out of the box, the very latest version of Android.

Moving on to the design, Sony is still sticking to the Ambient Flow design but it seems that they are introducing two new colour models which are called Bordeaux Red and Forest Green. The camera app's UI has also been redesigned and made more intuitive. But a new report by Winfuture.de gives us our clearest look at what the Xperia XZ3 will look like as well as the hardware it is going to bring.

Sony phones have always been expensive, but when you can get a great device like the OnePlus 6 for $529, it's no wonder Sony is still struggling to compete. Holding the phone horizontally will automatically activate the snapper. Sony will hopefully release more info soon. It still has a refreshed design compared to last year's Sony devices, and it still offers a good display, waterproofing, plenty of power and the same camera as the XZ3.

Customers who pre-order the handset from Amazon will also get an Xperia Ear Duo headset.
