When rumors about Sony's Xperia XZ3 came up, many of us wondered why . With the Xperia XZ2 being released in April of this year, why is Sony already releasing its successor? But now that it's officially announced, it makes a little more sense, because Sony actually calls the XZ3 more like the XZ2S.
The Sony Xperia XZ3 should have been the XZ2 this year. This is a cell phone with fewer defects than its predecessor, which would compete better with Samsung Galaxy S9. While the XZ3 shares many of its predecessor's components, there are four main enhancements: media usage, front camera, OS, and AI.
- OS: Android 9.0 Pie [1
- GPU: Adreno 630
- RAM: 4 GB
- Display : 6.0 "Quad HD + OLED display (no display notch)  Memory: 64 GB (expandable via microSD)
- Rear view camera: 19 MP f / 2.0
- Front camera 13 MP Wide Angle
- Audio: Dual front-facing stereo speakers, no headphone jack
- Water Resistance: IP65 / 68
- Battery: 3,300 mAh
- Biometrics Fingerprint Scanner (Back)
- Charge: Qi Wireless Charge, Quick Charge 3.0
What Has Not Changed  With 2018, the flagship SoC is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, the Sony of He also wanted to keep XZ2 Sony has also decided to bring back the 4 GB of RAM, a sum that Sony true should have been supposed to increase. The rear camera is the same as its predecessor, a 19 MP shooter that can record 4K HDR. Despite the hopes of some, it is still a single lens, but a more than capable shooter.
After all, the battery is more or less the same as the XZ2. Sony gave the XZ3 a slight upgrade from 3,180 mAh to 3,300 mAh. Battery life should be comparable to its predecessor. While the Sony Xperia XZ2 was not a bad phone for battery life, with 3,500 mAh (and more) phones in similar display sizes, it would have been nice for Sony to accommodate a larger capacity.
The next four sections are all you really need to know about the XZ3 – these are the areas where Sony has actually improved the XZ2.
The first big difference you'll notice is the new OLED display. This is the first time that Sony uses OLED in a mobile phone, so its recording is a very big deal. With the same technology from Sony BRAVIA TVs, the new display is a feast for the eyes. Both the resolution and screen size have been increased to 1440p and 6.0 inches, respectively. It supports HDR and should have no problem with content. Based on Sony's track record, the XZ3 should support HDR on Prime Video, Netflix, and YouTube.
Sony also brings the XZ2 feature, X-Reality, back upscale SD content to HDR. This improves the quality of the videos and allows them to take advantage of the clearer contrast of the colors available with HDR. Dynamic vibration is also returned, causing the phone to vibrate based on the audio, even for video. It's a nice little touch to make movies more immersive. And the screen's protection is Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
As for audio, Sony returns the S-Force front surround speakers, the name of the stereo front-front speakers. These speakers are now 20% louder than their predecessors. Unfortunately, there is still no headphone jack so you get stuck with a dongle or wireless options.
The front camera has received a significant improvement in resolution from 5 MP to 13 MP. The extra pixels should translate into much better selfies, even in low-light situations. Sony also has a display flash for taking pictures at night, so you can shoot your subject with the light you need. A bokeh effect is available despite its single lens, as well as beauty effects to enhance your look.
Sony has beaten all other OEMs and released the first smartphone with Android 9.0 Pie. With Android Pie, the XZ3 will be one of just three phones in the US with the latest version of Android.
Android Pie brought some new changes to the operating system, starting with the new gesture controls that replace the traditional three buttons. There are also some security changes to make your phone more secure. Check the following link for any new changes in Android Pie.
. 4 AI Enhancement & Gestures
AI is the name of the game in 2018, and Sony uses the technology to enhance the overall phone experience. Smart Launch is a new feature that launches the Camera app automatically when you can take a picture (keeping the phone horizontal).
Similar to the HTC Edge Launcher, Side Sense lets you use machine learning to create a set of apps that you're most likely to use. Side Sense changes depending on the location, time of day and day of the week and learns your habits. Side Sense starts by tapping the side of the phone twice.
Sony also contained a series of gestures, such as z as slipped down the side of the phone to go back , In the Camera app, double-tapping the page also takes a photo so your fingers can not cover the viewfinder.
Price & Availability
Sony will launch the Xperia XZ3 in October for $ 900. I am surprised that Sony rated the smartphone so high. It's $ 200 more expensive than its predecessor and $ 99 cheaper than XZ2 Premium with its 4K display, larger battery and two rear view cameras. It's a strangely high price, but hopefully it goes on sale quickly.
