Sony has introduced the XZ3, its new flagship smartphone, at IFA in Berlin. The new smartphone comes as an update to the Sony Xperia XZ2 with the additions of an OLED screen and AI functions, as well as being one of the first phones to have the new Android 9 Pie software.
The Sony Xperia XZ3 features a six-inch, OLED display with a screen ratio of 18:9. Its design is similar to its predecessor but with a more curved appearance, an IP65/IP68 certification for water resistance, 3D glass on the front and back over an aluminium frame and with colour choices like black, white silver, forest green or bordeaux red colours.
The XZ3 has a 19-megapixel Motion Eye Advanced camera with support for super slow-motion at 960 fps and 4K HDR video recording, while also having a 13-megapixel camera on the front.
Just like the XZ2, the XZ3 runs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, has a battery of 3,330 mAh, 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage, support for gigabit LTE and fast charging. It will also come with new AI features like ‘Side sense’, that will bring frequently used apps to the forefront for quicker access, and a ‘Smart launch’ option launches the camera when the phone is held in a landscape position.
The Sony Xperia XZ3 will be available from the end of September 2018.
