Sony Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact make yet another early appearance

The Sony Xperia Z3 has leaked again, with the heavily rumoured handset having popped up alongside the mooted Xperia Z3 Compact.

With both handset expected to be on the receiving end of a grand unveiling during next month’s IFA 2014 press conference in Berlin, the two handsets have shown up at the Russian equivalent of the FCC.

According to latest reports, the Sony Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact have been doing the rounds under the monikers of the Sony D6633/D6603 and the D5803 respectively.

While the flagship handset has been shown to run an Xperia Z2 mimicking 5.15-inch display, the Z3 Compact has been tipped to sport a smaller, 4.6-inch form factor.

Both handsets are expected to feature waterproof bodies and a 20.7-megapixel rear mounted camera.

Teased alongside the new high-end handset, the latest leaks have seen reference made to the Sony D2403, a handset rumoured to be a water resistant take on the Xperia M2.

As well as specs and product names of the upcoming Sony phones having been teased following their trip to the testing body, a claimed image of the Z3 Compact has also emerged.

Showing the handset on its side, the leaked pic has revealed the Z3 Compact will boast a rounded-edged, brushed metal finish similar to that of its big brother.

Sony has been tipped to be planning its IFA unveiling for September 3. If accurate, this will likely see the Xperia Z3 unveiled on the same day as the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
