Just bought a Sony Xperia XZ2? There’s now leaks about the XZ3 including specs and photos

By Daniel Tyson

Sony has only just released the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact in Australia, but already the leaks are starting for the next generation of the phone with specs and in the wild shots of the XZ3 leaking out.

The specs for the Xperia XZ3 leaked last week when a picture of a spec sheet showed up at sumahoinfo. The specs are iterative to the already released Xperia XZ2, with a 5.7″ Full HD+ (2160×1080) resolution IPS display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM and options for either 64GB or 128GB of storage and microSD card support up to 400GB available.

The phone will also have a slightly larger 3,240mAh battery, with support for Quick Charge 3.0 which will be via a USB-C port.

The phone will move from a single rear 19MP sensor to a dual sensor array with a 19MP RGB sensor behind an f/1.8 aperture – an improvement on the f/2.0 of the XZ2, as well as a 13MP monochrome unit.

If specs aren’t juicy enough for you a leak of picture of a prototype of the phone, also from Sumahoinfo show that Sony will continue with their new design language launched with the Xperia XZ2 including the 18:9 aspect ratio screen and curved rear. The major change on the rear is of course the dual camera sensor setup with a fingerprint sensor shown just below.

Sony has been quite constant about announcing new Xperia phones at IFA in September, so it’s possible we’ll see the Xperia XZ3 officially unveiled then.

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.

  • I wish Sony would be Abit less vague about their devices once they are officially released.
    Just wondering when we will hear some more about the XZ 2 Premium .

    • According to the Sony Mobile Australia team on Facebook, it isn't launching in Australia.

      And with that, I shall upgrade my XZ Premium to another manufacturers device.

      • XZ Premium was the last of the real Sony phones... after that they became HTC clones.

        Pity they could not just keep the XZ Premium styling ( perhaps add real metal to the frame rather than plastic ) and simply move to 18:9 screen with reduced bezels...

        Oh and actually just use their own very good sensors but leave the image processing to the SD845 ... photos would be WAY better then! Still astounds me that a company with such good image processing in their digital cameras and such great mobile sensors can still get it so wrong in their mobile phones year after year after year... the XZ2 is a vast improvement from all accounts but still a bit behind the leaders....

        That is the ONLY reason I shelved my XZ Premium and went for a Pixel...the camera.

  • I'm a bit of a Sony fan but their phones haven't been appealing in years.
    This new style is terrible, just like the last.

  • What about the XZ1 apparently not available in Australia ?? I was told by Sony when I was buying mine in Singapore at the Sony store in the airport
