Up to this point, despite launching new phones in 2018, Sony has yet to really jump on board the minimized bezels bandwagon. But that looks to be changing soon.
Back in late July we got a pretty good look at what’s believed to be called the Xperia XZ3 in black, rocking some minimized bezels on the top, bottom, and sides. And now MySmartPrice has another image to stare at of the upcoming handset, showing that Sony is clearly leaning towards a handset that will offer a bigger screen as it shrinks the size of the bezels.
This time around we get to see the handset in white, too, rather than the black model we saw almost a month ago. There is a fingerprint reader on the back of the XZ3, positioned below the single camera setup and the flash. Meanwhile, back around front, it certainly looks like Sony won’t be launching a smartphone with a notch anytime soon, so that’s probably good news for quite a few people out there.
Another notable takeaway here is the extra physical key that’s there on the bottom right of the right edge. While it’s possible that’s a dedicated button for Google Assistant, the positioning tells us it’s probably a physical shutter button for the camera.
As far as the rumor mill is concerned, the Xperia XZ3 is going to boast a 5.7-inch display with a resolution of 2160×1080. It’ll be hosting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM, and two variants that will offer either 64GB or 128GB of built-in storage. Sony may offer a 3240mAh battery under the hood as well.
So, what do you think of the rumored specs and design of the Xperia XZ3 from Sony?
