Sony Xperia XZ3 vs Sony Xperia XZ2

The Sony Xperia XZ3 Finally Launches

You won't have to wait long for the Xperia XZ3. Nonetheless, the smartphone is now making headlines once again since it has been spotted on GeekBench where its full specs sheet was revealed. Even though the XZ3 boasts top-of-the-line hardware, at first glance it only seems like an incremental update over its predecessor but it is much more than that.

The Sony Xperia XZ2 comes with a 5.7-inch LCD display that offers a 18:9 aspect ratio, as we briefly mentioned above. The Triluminous HDR screen uses Sony's X-Reality Engine. At its core, the flagship gets the latest and greatest Qualcomm - Snapdragon 845 chipset ticking for performance. It is also Water and dust resistant with IP65/IP68 certification. The Xperia XZ3 measures 158 x 73 x 9.9mm, while it weighs 193 grams.

For the most part, the XZ2 and Xperia XZ3 look nearly identical, but from the front you can see where this new 6-inch screen curves over the sides - similar to Samsung's Galaxy S9.

Both phones have a metal frame and a curvy glass back protected by Gorilla Glass 5. It also has more curved glass in a body that looks very much like the XZ2. Meanwhile, the fingerprint scanner is on the back, so there's no in-display stuff here yet. The phone does sport bezels above and below the display, which are similar in size to those on the Xperia XZ3.

The Side Sense feature also works when when you've launched the camera. A Type-C USB port sits on the bottom of the phone, while a 3.5mm headphone jack is not included here.

Sony is offering the XZ3 in four colors, though it's unclear if all four are coming to the U.S. We certainly hope the Bordeaux Red and Forest Green colors make the grade, as they're the most striking; Black and White Silver are your other options.

The biggest camera change comes up front. It has a 19MP Motion Eye main camera and 13MP front camera. The f/1.9 aperture must easy enable it to deal with low light a chunk of upper and there's improve for bokeh portrait shots and surprise functions in selfie mode. The camera app's UI has also been redesigned and made more intuitive.

The Xperia XZ3 features a 3,300mAh battery on the inside, and that battery is not removable, in case you were wondering.

It's only six month since the Sony Xperia XZ2 launched, but we already have the Sony Xperia XZ3.

The battery underneath is a 3300 mAh unit, which supports Quick Charge 3.0, as well as Qi Wireless Charging.
