Sony Xperia Z
New Z3 expected to echo its predecessor

Sony will not be following LG down the QHD smartphone route just yet; with latest leaks suggesting the Sony Xperia Z3 specs sheet will include a 5.15-inch, Full HD display.

With the Z3 having been the subject of multiple leaks and rumours in recent weeks, serial tech tipster @evleaks has now outed a raft of claimed Xperia Z3 specs, highlighting a device near identical to its predecessor, the Xperia Z2.

According to the latest reports, the Z3’s screen will feature the exact same resolution as its predecessor, albeit on a panel 0.5-inches smaller and be powered by a near identical processor, a 2.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 chipset as opposed to a 2.3GHz 801.

Further similarities include the same Adreno 330 GPU, 16GB of internal storage and a 20.7-megapixel rear and 2.1-megapixel forward-facing camera partnership which echo the snappers on the Z2.

While we must stress these leaks are far from official and should be taken with a considerable pinch of salt, if accurate we would home the Z3 has an amazing new software or design party piece to stem the disappointing lack of hardware improvements.

Recent Xperia Z3 leaks have claimed to show a handset with a near identical design to that of the Z2, with the new device expected to make its first formal appearance this September.

With Sony pushing out two flagship phone updates per year to the annual refreshes of the rival HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S and Apple iPhone lines, we have to ask why bother if only marginal improvements are offered.

"we would home the Z3 has an amazing new software or design party piece to stem the disappointing lack of hardware improvements."

I really hope so. If not, this should at least push Z2's price down somewhat...

It seems that Sony are following Apple by offering minuscule and pointless updates to make a new model - it's bound to succeed ...!!!

If they hadn't gone for the Z2 then this would be a worthy upgrade - and as they are doing a Z3 compact (I believe?) then it really does show that the Z2 was a stop gap improvement (especially as the Z2 Compact didn't exist).

Don't see the issue with them releasing updates this frequently, no matter how small the changes. Nothing;s forcing you to upgrade if you own a Z1 or Z2, but if you're looking at buying a new phones from something completely different (iPhone, for example) the fact the newest model is only a few months old means it's more appealing and will likely feature very modern parts. Future-proofing/marketing of new models doesn't affect your device negatively.
