Sony arrived at IFA 2014 with Xperia Z3


Japanese consumer electronics and smartphone giant Sony has also arrived at the IFA 2014 party in Berlin by wrapping off the covers from its much-anticipated flagship handset dubbed as the Xperia Z3.
The descendent to this latest device, the Xperia Z2, was launched just half a year ago.


The new phone bears amazing similarity to its older version besides having a new small, sleek and slimmer design.

The new Xperia Z3 brings in a quality 1080p display of 5.2-inches with a pixel density of 424ppi. It weighs around 163 grams. It has got an aluminum frame and tempered glass ear this time. Albeit, this phone also features multiple colors schemes and also the water and dust-proof capability (IP65/68 rating).

The hardware specs of Xperia Z3 sports the identical 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, Adreno 330 graphics, 3GB of RAM and a default capacity of 16GB which can be extended up to 128GB via memory chip.

The phone is equipped with a high-profile 20.7-MP main shooting sensor capable of recording videos up to 4Kand a new 25mm wide-angle Sony G Lens. Another camera with a pixel density of 2.2MP sits at the front and is limited to 1080p.

The Xperia Z3 is loaded with a massive 3100mAh long-lasting battery. Sony has said that with the provision of this robust battery, it can give 2 days battery backup; however, many users suggest that it will be drained out in a day.
