Sony launches yet another timid Xperia XZ3 smartphone at IFA 2018

The Sony Xperia XZ3 Finally Launches

What's it like to use?

XZ3 features new Smart launch with AI that instantly prepares your camera when you hold your phone up in landscape mode, ensuring you never miss a moment. Corning's Gorilla Glass 5 is also applied on the display of this smartphone, while the device's back side is curved quite a bit. The device also gets IP65/68 certification for dust and water resistance. For selfies, the handset gets a 13MP front-facing shooter with AI-powered bokeh and beauty effects.

It will be available in the United Kingdom from September (exact date TBC) for £699 SIM-free in black, red, green and white.

The Sony Xperia XZ3 comes with a larger and denser display than its predecessor, it sports a 6-inch QHD+ HDR OLED display, while the Xperia XZ2 sported a 5.7-inch IPS LCD panel. The front camera only supports Full HD. As is the move to OLED - another first for the company.

Nearly 3000 deaths in Puerto Rico linked to Maria, say university researchers
He said financial instability and a fragile infrastructure made Puerto Rico especially vulnerable to such calamities. She also says the federal government "will continue to be supportive" of Gov.

Rich Shibley/Digital TrendsWe watched a short video on the Xperia XZ3 and it regarded fine. The way this works is you simply have to double-tap on either side of the phone, and you will be shown the apps that you are most likely to use next. Added to this is a 18:9 screen ratio and bezel-less design for the sides.

The device ships with Android 9.0 Pie onboard making it the first smartphone in the world to ship with the latest iteration of Android that was released earlier this year.

The rear camera is 19.2 MP and has Sony's Motion Eye camera system. So there's not much to choose between them there, at least on paper. Up front, the smartphone houses a 13-megapixel camera with Sony Exmor RS sensor and wide-angle lens. While this result might be impressive, Xperia XZ3 manages to impress us even further by scoring 8665 points in the multi-core tests. However, Xperia XZ3, like Xperia XZ2, does not include a 3.5mm headphone jack.

In this case bigger should be better, but it remains to be seen whether the extra capacity is enough to compensate for the larger, sharper screen.

England reveal the playing XI for the 4th Test
It's all very well mugging India at Lord's when it's damp and dark, but putting them in at Trent Bridge was a daft mistake. Captain Kohli continued his blistering run in the ongoing series by scoring a second-innings ton.

Like the Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Premium, the Sony Xperia XZ3 is also a flagship smartphone.

What do you think about the design, specifications and pricing of the Sony Xperia XZ3? The XZ2 has now dropped in price in many stores, but only by around $100 / £100.

Indeed, other than the new six-inch Quad HD+ HDR OLED display, which now curves over the edges, the two phones are physically similar.

And of course, the other flagship specs are there.

If you've been following the rumors, then the XZ3 is going to look instantly familiar.
