The Sony Xperia Z4 was announced last month and exclusively available in Japan. Now, the company has revealed what could be a stop-gap device in its route to a major reworking of its mobile division.
Today, Sony unveiled the Xperia Z3+, which has familiar design lines to Sony’s previous Xperia Z3 flagship, along with a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core 64 bit processor, and 3GB of RAM. The rear-facing camera is the same 20.7MP sensor and wide-angle 25mm lens as in the Xperia Z3, but the front-facing camera has improved to 5MP from 2MP for better selfies. Sony promises “two-day battery life to keep you connected faster and longer than ever” with its 2900mAh battery, which is slightly less than the 3100mAh embedded into the Z3.
The Xperia Z3+ is 6.9mm thick, has an IP65/68 rating for dust and waterproofing, and will come in copper, black, white, and blue. While there is no specific Canadian date mentioned, but Sony says the Xperia Z3+ will launch globally starting next month.
