First images of the Sony Xperia Z3 leak – are they real?

July 11, 2014

    Sony Xperia T2 Ultra-31

    Rumors of the Sony Xperia Z3 have been spreading, with the latest coming from Vodafone Germany. The device’s appearance has not been unveiled until today, though, making this leak a little special. Today we bring you a set of images said to have the Xperia Z3 as the subject.

    While previous rumors made us expect the design to be different, we don’t see many changes in the design language here. Sony is known for its classic aesthetics, which is something their fans often praise. Aside from its looks, the prototype unit does seem to be quite a capable device so far.

    This would be the Chinese version with model number L55t, which makes sense knowing the Xperia Z2 is labeled as the L50t. Check out the gallery below to see the device in more detail. The pictures are not half bad, but we could always use better quality.

    Most specs continue to be a mystery, but from the photos we can tell it is running Android 4.4.4 on firmware build 23.0.G.0.98. It also seems like the device will have a 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, Adreno 330 graphics and probably the same 20.7MP Exmor RS lens we have seen from both predecessors.

    It’s also important to note this is still a prototype, so design, specs and other aspects could still be subject to change. Of course, it may a bit early to be losing sleep over the Xperia Z3. After all, the Sony Xperia Z2 is an amazing smartphone and has yet to reach many markets.

    Not to mention, this are still rumors and we wouldn’t hold our breath on them just yet. We will definitely give you the details as soon as they become available, so stay tuned!

            Too bad your uncle didn’t work hard enough, otherwise he could’ve gotten a brand new red GMC Canyon.

        This reads like a spec sheet for a 2015 flagship. Z4 or Z5 it is for you then…

        • Clarence Alvarado

          Just in time for a Z1 replacement. How I wish.

        One can dream. :)

      • anon

        Why don’t I just wordvomit some specs and keep wishing too

      • Tjaldid

        All seems feasible but they will try to save money where they can so you might not see RGBW or 32GB unless it gets really cheap to put in the phone, the curved sensor only when they feel it is ready as it is about to enter mass manufacturing and the initial units might not be up to par.

      If the single-LED flash is real, then happiness is not real.
      LG G3 is real. HTC One (M8) is real. iPhone 5S is real. Nokia Lumia is real.
      Sony is not real(ly doing dual-LED flash. F*uck you, Sony. F*ck you).

      • Jayfeather787

        Are you really upset by only one LED flash? Wow. Pretty dumb, man. Flash is one of the things you should be least concerned about. Then you don’t need and say fuck sony.

      It will definitely rock 805
      More slimmer but only concern is camera… The processing is not great, it’s just good

      I really love Sony but I will buy the first phone with SD 810 since is 20mm 64 bit and 8 core. Although I will love to see bigger screen with smaller bezels, better sound and camera quality. If I will give my money I want something worth it so I think I will wait.

    • MavDKM

      Android OEMs seem to have lost patience and gone crazy.

    • indio7777

      …:( Where’s the Sony Xperia Z Ultra 2? heh

    • wtd2009

      is there any way they could have trimmed down those top and bottom bezels by now, it seems like they’ve been coasting on this design for a while.

      • Tjaldid

        It has to do with the camera, the only way they can trim the bezel is by making The phone thicker or by using a smaller camera
