In June, the purported specs of the rumored Sony Xperia XZ3 leaked online giving us some hints about what to expect from Sony's next-generation flagship device. Now, a fresh leak claims to reveal for the first time the supposed image of the Xperia XZ3.
As shown in the image to the right, the upcoming smartphone may be dropping the trendy notch on the display and the dual-camera setup on the back of the device. Additionally, it shows that the Xperia XZ3 is likely to sport a full-screen display with a high resolution, punctuated by a small bezel on the top and a small chin on the bottom.
Contrary to previous rumors indicating the Xperia XZ3 will ship with a dual rear camera, the leaked image suggests the device will instead boast only a single, large camera, with an oval sensor apparently located between the lens and the LED flash. It's not clear what function that sensor will perform, but MySmartPrice speculates this could be part of Sony’s Hybrid focusing technology that blends phase-detection and laser-detection autofocus.
Additionally, there's a dedicated shutter button positioned on the lower right side of the phone and a fingerprint sensor below the rear camera module. An NFC logo is also slightly visible alongside the sensor.
In terms of the design, the Xperia XZ3 is supposed to have a metal unibody design that conceals any trace of the antenna lines. The device is also likely to include a slot for a single SIM card only despite previous rumors suggesting the phone will support 4G+4G dual-SIM.
Since the details disclosed by the leak remain unconfirmed, it's always wise to take them with a pinch of salt. Sony is expected, though, to announce its next flagship phone at the upcoming IFA 2018 event set to kick off on August 31 in Berlin.
