As per Sony’s launch cycle, we should be nearing the time we get to see a new flagship smartphone. As in on cue, we have been coming across leaks around what is expected to be the Sony Xperia XZ3. Adding to the growing list is a bunch of alleged real-life photos of the upcoming smartphone.
The photos leaked by sumahoinfo clearly show the front and back sides of the Sony Xperia XZ3. Looking at them, it is clear that this upcoming device will be more of an iterative upgrade over the Xperia XZ2 Premium. The design, for one, feels quite familiar.
The front does remind you quite a bit of the Xperia XZ2 Premium. While the upcoming smartphone will flaunt a tall 18:9 aspect ratio, there are thick bezels at the top and bottom. At the back, Sony is retaining the dual-camera setup, but it looks different. Instead of one camera module, Sony seems to have simply put in two camera lens with the LED flash and possibly laser auto-focus above them.
Right below the camera lenses you can also just about make out the fingerprint sensor. Also seen are the power button, and volume rocker placed on the right edge.
