When we talk about smartphones from Sony, it’s always assumed that Sony unveils two flagships a year. Not so long ago, Sony revealed their ultimate flagship naming Xperia Z2. Being released few weeks ago in the CES 2014, Xperia Z2 is capable of taking on the battle of flagships with Galaxy S5, iPhone 5S, HTC One (2014) and lots of other ones. From the looks of it, Sony is planning to release two flagships every year. Just 6 months ago, Sony Xperia Z1 came out of the Sony closet with powerful specs and big camera. Xperia Z2 made its way just after half a year. So, we’re pretty sure Sony will release a new flagship smartphone within another six months. That’s mean we’re getting Xperia Z3 within August or September of this year. Mind you, that’s the foreseeable release date of iPhone 6, Galaxy Note 4 etc. So, we’re really excited about the specs fight that’s going to take place among the flagships.
Xperia Z2 came with industry-leading hardware specs to take the fights with other flagships that came out already. There are a great number of reviews on Xperia Z2, and all of them were quite positive. But, we didn’t like some flaws of this flagship. So, expecting a good recovery we assume Sony will fix all the minor flaws of Xperia Z2 and implement better hardware in Xperia Z3.
Let’s see some possible specs that we’re hearing that might come with Xperia Z3.
Xperia Z2 features a nice IPS LCD 5.2-inch display. So, Xperia Z3 might feature 5.2-5.5inch QHD IPS LCD Display. Anything larger than 5.5-inch might be considered as phablet and Sony won’t do any mistake like this on their flagship.
One of the best things about Sony is that they implement water-resistant and dust-resistant smartphones and tablets in their product chain. This is great for any user out there who requires a heavy-duty smartphone. Samsung also started producing these certified scratch and water resistant smartphones under their “Active” product lineup. Xperia Z3 will certainly come with Shatter Proof and Scratch resistant glass with more than 424 ppi pixel density (currently present in Xperia Z2). We’re hoping Sony will also come with the idea of self-healing back chassis like the one we’re seen on LG G flex.
Sony already implemented the Snapdragon 801 Chipset with 2.3GHz Quad-core processor in their Xperia Z2 along with 3GB RAM. So, Xperia Z3 will come with the updated Snapdragon chipset. It might be a matter of debate whether Sony will add 4GB RAM or not but it might be featuring 4GB RAM on Xperia Z3.
In terms of imaging system in smartphones, Sony never disappointed us. So, taking this fact, Sony will probably increase the aperture size and picture quality in their next flagship. Battery life is also a major factor since Sony’s Z1 failed in some battery tests. We don’t have much idea about the Z2 but Z3 should come with at least two days of battery life.
Sony’s CEO confirmed they are going to release another flagship this year but didn’t confirm when or what the things may be in their upcoming smartphone. So, keep tuned for more info.
