Sony is clearly doing a lot to make its Xperia brand relevant, at least outside the United States. The Xperia Z1 was barely out for six months when the company decided to step-it-up a notch with the Xperia Z2 at MWC 2014. You’d assume that Sony would give the Xperia Z2 some time to marinate some success, as people had a hard time deciding over the Xperia Z1 mainly because of the Xperia Z2, and it seems that won’t be the case one again.
We get the first leaked photos of what should be the metal frame of the Sony Xperia Z3. Sadly at the moment the only specs we get from this new component of the chassis is that it will include PVD coating, which should provide better impact resistance, resilience to scratches and also corrosion-resistance.
The source also claims that the Xperia Z3 will continue with the current 1080p display that we find on Sony smartphones since the Xperia Z, but will improve specs with a Snapdragon 805 CPU clocked at 2.7GHz, even though other specs like the 3GB of RAM, and a 20.7MP main camera will remain. Let’s seen if this announcement happens in time for IFA, as the Xperia Z1 was launched during that timeframe.
