We expect Sony to announce the Sony Xperia XZ3 at the IFA 2018 press conference later today, but for the future Which images and information have a fairly clear picture of what we might see.
Shared by Leaker Roland Quandt via Winfuture.de, the images seem to be high quality press results, apparently the XZ3 shows in black, green, red and white shades.
These colors are in line with another recent leak, just like the design of the phone, which only has a one-lens reversing camera and large edges above and below the screen, but no notch.
Apply the OLED
The corresponding specifications and information are perhaps more interesting, because the Sony Xperia XZ3 apparently has an OLED screen, which would be a first for a Sony phone. It is said to be a 6-inch 1440 x 2880 display with an aspect ratio of 18: 9.
The leak also indicates that the Xperia XZ3 has "special touch areas at the edge of the screen that can activate certain actions", with the example that you can touch the edge of the screen to take a picture.
We are not sure if this would be like the squeezable sides of the Pixel 2 or the HTC U12 Plus, but it will be interesting to note if they work more effectively.
Other specifications in the leak include stereo speakers, a Snapdragon 845 chipset clocked up to 2.8 GHz, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, a 19MP rear camera, a 13 MP front and a 3,300 mAh battery.
As always, we take this leak with a pinch of salt, especially because some earlier leaks contradict this, but once it is started and comes from a reliable source, chances are that it is correct.
No they do not.August 29, 2018
That is not all the Xperia news that we have, while it is likely that we will soon have an official look at the Sony Xperia XZ3, one thing that we apparently will not see is the Sony Xperia XZ3 Compact.
That is again according to Roland Quandt, which in response to the question of whether Sony will launch the Xperia XZ3 Compact next to the XZ3, said the company would not.
It is not clear from his wording whether we would see an XZ3 compact down the line or that there would be no XZ3 compress at all, but we would certainly not count on seeing it today.
