Sony Unveils Xperia XZ3 With Butt Notch, OLED Display, Android Pie

Sony-Xperia-XZ3

But Sony's gotten into the habit of releasing new devices every few months, and it's getting tougher and tougher to tell them apart.

Unveiled at Germany's IFA consumer electronics festival in Berlin, the XZ3 is £300 cheaper than Apple's iPhone X at £699.

With the Xperia XZ3, Sony is also introducing the new Side Sense feature that works similar to Edge Sense on HTC and Pixel devices. As is the case with most Sony smartphones, the Xperia XZ3 is also IP65/68 certified for water and dust resistance.

In all that means the Xperia XZ3 has a bigger, sharper screen that's more vibrant than the XZ2's. Sony says pre-orders for the $899 phone start September 24.

The Xperia XZ3 looks handsome and the new OLED display is lovely, but this year alone we've already seen the XZ2 and XZ2 Premium, and with so little separating the three devices, Sony's smartphones are getting increasingly iterative. But here's what we know so far about the new device after some hands-on time with the device. Sony also says a mobile image processing engine will reduce noise and improve contrast.

We're easy attempting at a tumbler sandwich here with an aluminum frame, however the bent back appears correct and makes it more chuffed to take.

Apple set to launch its new iPhones on September 12
It's now unclear if Apple will save this announcement for later in the year or reveal all alongside its new range of phones. But now the wait is over as Apple has officially sent out the invites for its most important event of the year.

The XZ2 has a singular camera but an 18:9 aspect display, while the XZ2 Premium has a dual rear camera and a 16:9 aspect display.

If there's one thing Sony thinks will sell you on the Xperia XZ3 above all else, it's the new 6-inch, Quad HD+ HDR OLED display.

How much does the Xperia XZ3 cost? It comes with Sony's Triluminos and X-Reality technologies, as well as HDR support, all behind a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 glass.

There don't look like any right surprises at some level of the Xperia XZ3. Sony Xperia XZ3 comes in four colour options of black, white silver, forest green and bordeaux red. The streamlined interface also provides better access to Google Lens. A 13-megapixel camera (f/1.9 aperture) is included on the phone's front side, while the device sports larger S-Force front surround speakers. The successor to XZ2 retains the most of the internals but gets substantial upgrades to the aesthetics. In addition, your immersive experience is set to last all day, thanks to several useful battery features such as Smart Stamina, STAMINA mode, plus Battery Care and Qnovo Adaptive Charging technology to help the battery stay healthy to give you a longer battery lifespan. Smart Launch figures to save only a few seconds from swiping your camera awake, but those seconds can make the difference when you're trying to capture the ideal shot. It's like Samsung's Edge Sense, but with a double tap instead of a swipe. The Xperia XZ3 has DSEE-HX support, and Android 9 Pie comes pre-installed on the device. It will power by the Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor under the hood.

Sony's Xperia XZ3 features 4GB of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage and it supports a microSD card up to 512GB.

In regards to battery, we have heard it's 3,330mAh.
