Sony Xperia
The Sony Xperia Z3 is just refusing to stay under wraps, even though we’re still 2 months away from IFA where the phone is expected to be announced. There’s been two leaks recently, which shows the phone off from multiple angles and even alongside a Samsung Galaxy Note to give you a size comparison.

As you can see, the Xperia Z3 appears to be around the same height as the Galaxy Note, although it does appear to not be as wide as the 83mm wide Samsung Phablet.

The leak also shown off is the notification light on the Xperia Z3, which will be present in the top left of the screen, as well as the bottom of the phone. There’s the same design we’ve come to know (and somewhat love) from the Xperia Z1/Z2 although with some refinements such as a more curved corner to offset the sharpish edges which some users have found to be a little off putting.

There’s the same magnetic connector sits alongside the microSD card slot, microSIM card slot as well as the microUSB slot – all of which are covered by the now familiar flaps which speaks to the Z3 continuing the IP58 dust/water resistance certification of the previous models.

Just have to wait a couple more months for the Xperia Z3’s expected unveiling, we hope that it will also be announced alongside the Z3 Compact, which briefly showed up last week. Until the official announcement, we’ll just enjoy the leaky ship that is the leadup to a Sony Xperia flagship launch. Head across to the source links for a few more images.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

We are having so many issues with the Z1 and Z2 with self cracking glass. It’s just causing alot of issues so I am refusing to sell them now.

8.3mm wide? or thick?

I love my n5 and n7, but i’m over managing both my phone and tablet… I think i’m ready for a phablet, but won’t make the move until we see a nexus / google play edition variant.

Well, just make it a bit wider and be the Xperia Note.
