  • The Sony Xperia XZ3 Finally Launches

Sony unveiled the Sony Xperia XZ3 at the IFA in Berlin with the motto "See more". When we look at its display area, though, things are starting to click in this day and age where a sub-$800 flagship is considered a bargain. However, this year it's simply the XZ3 on its lonesome. Here is how the Xperia XZ3 compares to the XZ2 and XZ2 Premium.

Pictured is the Sony Xperia XZ3 - the latest flagship smartphone from the Japanese company.

Sony Xperia smartphones stand out for their camera capabilities, and the Xperia XZ3 is no less. The main highlight of the Xperia XZ3 is the 6-inch display up front with a QHD+ resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio which comes with Sony's BRAVIA HDR tech and is an OLED panel. Sony continues to do a bang up job of keeping up with the latest Android versions, whether by releasing devices with new software or updating existing ones, and we wish more manufacturers would learn from it. This compares to the all-screen devices now being released by Apple, Samsung, Huawei, LG and a host of other big phone manufacturers.

The screen now has curved edges a bit like the Galaxy S9 and a feature similar to HTC's Edge Sense.

The phone uses AI to power the Side Sense function, which intelligently predicts frequently used applications and makes it easier to reach. Some of the leaks we saw seem to have been right on the money as far as aesthetics ate concerned, with the XZ3 sporting a borderless design and a display that spans pretty much the entire width of the phone.

Greater Grace's Bishop Charles Ellis III says he wants all - even the famous - to leave with a "spiritual awakening". That's a nod to her funky '80s tune of the same name that prominently featured the auto in the lyrics and video.

Under the hood is what is expected of a 2018 top range phone with a Snapdragon 845 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM, and 64GB internal memory.

According to the image posted by the website, it looks like the Sony XZ3 will be available in total of four colors, which includes Black, White, Burgundy, and Green.

The new Xperia XZ3 features Gorilla Glass 5 on the back, as well as the front.

"While on the front, there's a 13 MP 1/3.09" Sony Exmor RS snapper attached to a f/2.0 22mm wide-angle lens. The handset also offers up to 512GB of expandable storage via microSD.

We're enthusiastic to exhaust some more time with the Sony Xperia XZ3, and the OLED appears correct, however must you take into accounts about that it could maybe perhaps price higher than the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, it's laborious to flee the conclusion that it's too dear. You will have to splash out $899.99 in order to get the Xperia XZ3, though.
