The IFA event in Berlin was very exciting for the smartphone fans as a plethora of devices were unveiled at this event. Sony unveiled two of their smartphones at this event – Sony Xperia Z3 and Sony Xperia Z3 Compact.
Sony Xperia Z3:
Sony Xperia Z3 is another flagship device of Sony and it releases only after 6 months of the launch of the Xperia Z2. This device can be considered as a minor upgrade since not many changes are seen in the device. Xperia Z3 comes with a better IP65/68 dust and water resistance.
Xperia Z3 comes with a 5.2in screen with a 1920 x 1080 resolution (pixel density of 423 pixels per inch). It is powered by Snapdragon 801 processor running at 2.5GHz in the Xperia Z3 along with a huge 3GB of RAM. As with the Z2, the phone comes with just 16GB of internal storage, but features a microSD card slot which allows up to 128GB of extra storage.
The camera is the same 20.7 megapixel sensor as seen on the Xperia Z2, but Sony has made a number of changes elsewhere to improve low light performance. The Z3 is the first smartphone to have an ISO level of 12,800 which is what you would expect to find in one of Sony’s mid-to-high range of Cybershot cameras.
One of the big claims Sony is making about the Z3 is that its battery will be able to last for a full two days of typical use. Users will be able to play PS4 games on this device which is a big plus offered by Sony.
The phone will be launched in October.
Sony Xperia Z3 Compact:
Xperia Z3 Compact is basically a smaller version of the Z3 but offers same specs like the processor, RAM, the battery saving capabilities and much more.
The display is much smaller at 4.6-inches, with a 720p resolution. While the Z3 Compact’s design isn’t much different from its predecessor, there are a few new color choices such as teak and orange.
There is not much update from Sony regarding the Xperia Z3 Compact yet.
