Sony Xperia Z3 Tipped To Feature Snapdragon 801 Chipset [REPORT]

Posted by:

With leaked photos of the Xperia Z3 already starting to emerge online, it seems that the next-big thing from Sony isn't too far away. Many believe that the upcoming flagship device could be game changer with respect to design.

The current generation Xperia Z2 is a brilliant handset, but Sony may bring an upgraded version soon. The Sony Xperia Z3, or whatever it'll be called, will reportedly be Sony's next flagship phone.

The  Xperia Z3 handset hasn't been officially announced, but new rumors continue to emerge on the internet. Now, today, a leaked screenshot coming from the device allegedly shows it is being powered by a Snapdragon 801 processor.

The leaked screenshot made online, courtesy of XperiaBlog, allegedly comes from a Sony-made phone that sports a model number D6653. Moreover, the screenshot clearly shows the upcoming device will come with a Full HD screen, and a quad-core Snapdragon 801 chipset. However, while the report confirmed the forthcoming handset could feature a Snapdragon 801 SoC, one should take this rumor with a pinch of salt.

Let's not forget that Sony has already launched the Xperia Z2 with a Snapdragon 801 processor, therefore, it is unlikely to see the same chipset goes inside the next-gen flagship device.

Sony Xperia Z3 Mini Alleged Specs Leaked Online

Just a day back, the mini version of the Xperia Z3 emerged online. Apparently, the upcoming mystery phone sport model number D580x and will be called either Xperia Z3 mini or Xperia Z3 Compact. Specs-wise, the mini version of the Xperia Z3 is expected to come with a 4.5-inch FHD display, a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor with Adreno 330 graphics, alongside a modest 2GB of RAM. On the imaging front, the compact handset will feature a 20.7-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing shooter.

Japan's Sony has already confirmed that it will release a new big-ticket Android-powered smartphone this fall, as it is planning the release of a monster device every six months, which also means that Xperia Z3 could be launched officially at this year's IFA Berlin tech show.
