It s quite likely that the company will announce the XZ3 and XA3 line-ups at IFA 2018. A purported image of the upcoming Xperia XZ3 leaked recently, highlighting a design that s nearly identical to the current Xperia XZ2. It s good then, that we won t have to wait much before Sony makes the devices official.

An unknown Sony smartphone, most likely to be the Xperia XA3, was recently spotted on Geekbench, complete with specifications. If the listing is to be believed, the yet-to-be-announced Sony Xperia XA3 will be powered by Qualcomm s Snapdragon 660 SoC. It ll also pack 6GB of RAM and runs Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box, with an update to Android 9.0 Pie expected to arrive sometime later.
