The stage is being set for the release of Sony Xperia Z3, the next in line Xperia. The Xperia Z3 will be tough competitor coming out with best in hardware and software experience. We have for you today, some specs and updates about the upcoming flagship.
Xperia Z3 Body
The Xperia series of smartphones went ahead with one thing, glass covered body. We have seen something similar in the Nexus 4 as well. But Sony managed to make the glass reflect the beauty of the phone. Under this thick shatterproof glass lies the all metal body of the Xperia. This won’t be any different in the case of Xperia Z3 as well. We’ll be seeing more glass from Sony for the Z3 promising better strength and scratch proof capabilities. While the glass gives it a shine, it also masks the IP certified rating of the Xperia Z3, the waterproof and dust proof capabilities ofcourse. With some news hinting that the Xperia Z3 will be shock proof and salt proof, military standard tested in some technical jargon to be honest.
Xperia Z3 Display
The Triluminos display with the X0Reality engine on the Xperia Z2 gave us some vivid multimedia experience with the perfect blend of saturation throughout. While this holds true, we are yet to see more of in the Xperia Z3. The Xperia Z3 will be out with a 5.5 inch QHD panel with a total resolution of 2560×1440 with a pixel density of 550ppi. The display speaks for itself in this case but would this be enough to match the QHD AMOLED panel on Samsung Note 4 is a question to ask. AMOLED panels tend to more saturated and vivid and test from the Galaxy S5 also proves that the AMOLED panel has improved over time with increased readability in bright sunlight too.
Xperia Z3 Camera
What a user nowadays look in a smartphone is the camera. Why can’t people go for a DSLR instead, well the answer is simple, they want a phone with a good camera. Sony’s Z series line up proves its worth in this respect offering best camera experience overall. For the Xperia Z3, Sony’s planning to add a 24 megapixel 1/2″ sensor which has its own added advantages. The first one being, more light meaning more sensitivity and you get perfect shots in daytime and in dim lighting conditions too. The Xperia Z3 will offer beautiful shots, perfectly saturated and exposed shots in any lighting condition. 24 Megapixel is enough for stills, but for video, you get 4K now offering best video experience. If you don’t have a 4K TV, there’s always a way to resample the video to 1080P.
Xperia Z3 Processor
Performance is what matters in a phone these days. No matter how you look, any phone these days offer best in line hardware a top optimized software. Xperia Z2 as an example offered a Snapdragon 801 SoC with 3GB of RAM coupled to it. But for the Xperia Z3, it’s heartbeat will come from a Snapdragon 805 SoC clocked at 2.5GHz. This will be coupled with 3GB of RAM. To say for short, Xperia Z3 will be your next powerhouse and multimedia friend. But the Note 4 with it’s rumoured Exynos 5433 may have an advantage because benchmarks of the Exynos show a margin on the scores produced by the two SoCs. But for any user out there, the difference is minute, for power users out there this will be a totally different story.
Xperia Z3 Battery
The Xperia Z2 with 3200mAh battery is enough for almost any user out there. Sony’s planning to bump it up since the Z3 is a powerhouse and it shouldn’t run out of charge in the middle of the day. So the Z3 is expected to come with a 3700mAh battery a huge bump from the Z2.
Now this is to provide a day and half of normal usage. But for the tech geeks, the power users who try benchmarking, gaming, multimedia, pulling content from the web, social update and more, the 3700mAh would last for a day or maybe 12 hours before they reach for the charger.
