Sony Xperia Z3's alleged specifications unveiled

Sony’s next flagship, Xperia Z3 is definitely one of the most anticipated devices of 2014. We’ve seen it leak recently in a photo sized up next to the original Samsung Galaxy Note. It’s time to take a look at some alleged specs of this device.

@evleaks usually has some pretty solid information when it comes to leaks. According to the leaker Xperia Z3’s specs will look like this:

  • Snapdragon 801 2.4GHz quad-core chip
  • 3GB of RAM
  • Adreno 330 GPU
  • 5.15″ 1080p display
  • 16GB of internal storage (with probable microSD expansion although the leak doesn’t mention that)
  • 20.7MP main camera
  • 2.1MP front-facing shooter
  • Android 4.4.4 KitKat OS out of the box

To be quote honest this looks a lot like the current-gen Xperia flagship, the Z2 model. The only exceptions are the screen size, 5.15″ compared to the Z2’s 5.2″, clock speed of the processor which should be negligibly higher on the Z2 and the front-facing shooter which should be 2.1MP on the Z3 compared to the Z2’s 2.2MP.

@evleaks is usually extremely accurate with its leaks, so we’re taking this one rather seriously, although these specs look rather weird. We understand there’s no need to go higher with the specs at this point considering this device will work like a beast. We did however expect from Sony to bump them up a bit, considering everyone else is doing it. I guess we can applaud them for taking the high road considering there’s no need for any considerable spec bumps at this point.

It’s going to be interesting to see how will the Z3 sell if these specs are in fact accurate. At a first glance there’s really no need to trade in your Z2 for a Z3, but who knows what Sony has up its sleeve when it comes to this device. We’ll just have to wait and see, and I say it again, all this presuming these specifications are accurate.

What do you think?
