The upcoming Sony Xperia XZ 3 smartphone has been a subject of leaks and speculations since the last few weeks. The smartphone, which is likely to become the successor to the Xperia XZ2 Premium device launched early this year was spotted on a benchmarking website a couple of days ago. The device was also touted to arrive with a similar design like the Xperia XZ 2 and the Xperia XZ2 Premium and may get unveiled at the IFA 2018 tech expo to be held in Berlin.
A Sony device carrying model number H8416 was recently spotted on the GFX benchmarking website. The listing also revealed that the smartphone will run on Android P out of the box. This indicates that the device may be launched soon after the official rollout of Android P stable version. The device is also expected to arrive with a QHD+ display screen with a resolution of 2880 X 1440 pixels and 18:9 aspect ratio.
Tech site SumahoInfo also recently got a screenshot of the GFX benchmark listing via a comment on the Xperia blog. Although it does not come from an official source it does reveal that the listing carries model number SM H8614 which is likely to be the successor of the Xperia XZ2. The device is expected to arrive with a 5.9-inch full HD+ display with a resolution of 2880 X 1440 pixels and 18:9 aspect ratio. Additionally, it may also feature 5 finger gesture support. The smartphone may be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC clocked at 2.7GHz. The other specifications include Adreno 630 GPU with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of inbuilt storage space.
As per earlier reports, the XperiaXZ3 is expected to arrive with a dual rear camera module. However, the GFX listing ruled out the possibility and hinted that it will have a single rear camera of 19-megapixels that will come equipped with 4K video recording, autofocus, LED flash and beautification mode. On the front, it may feature a 13-megapixel sensor for taking selfies and video calling.
