Sony Xperia Z3: Next-Gen Flagship Smartphone Tipped For September Launch

Written By:

Sony's latest flagship handset, the Xperia Z2, has been made available in many countries, including India, earlier last month. Although it is just three months since Sony first announced its most talked flagship phone at this year's Mobile World Congress, new rumors suggest the Japanese might have started preparing to release the next-gen handset in the Xperia series.

Struggling Japanese electronics company Sony is aiming to be one of the top ranked players in the handset business. Sony first launched the Xperia Z1 in September last year, and after a gap of six months, the Xperia Z2 was introduced to the world in February earlier this year. Looks like Sony would like to continue this trend in the future by coming up with the long rumored Xperia Z3 in September of this year.
