Sony introduces the Xperia XZ3

While the former two are pretty standard, the Burgundy and Green colors seem fancy enough to help the Xperia XZ3 stand out. The Xperia XZ2 had near similar specs but didn't have an OLED display.

The rest of the features in the Xperia XZ3 remain unchanged.

Packed with audio and visual technology created to help "capture reality", the Xperia XZ3 features a 6.0-inch 18:9 2880 x 1440 resolution display featuring OLED technology for deeper blacks, sharper images, richer and more vibrant colours. The Gorilla Glass 5 protected display is nearly bezel-less on the sides and has a Triluminos engine along with X-Reality for mobile.

The "heart" of the Xperia XZ3 has become the flagship Snapdragon processor 845, which is paired with graphic accelerator Adreno 630 will provide a quick user interaction and the device.

All three devices are IP65/68 water and dust resistant. This makes Xperia XZ3 one of the first devices to run Android Pie out-of-the-box.

China scuppering Korea talks to avenge trade war, says US
Trump said last week that he would "most likely" meet Kim again, depending on how faithfully he implements his commitment to denuclearize.

Despite offering 4K HDR video recording and "full HD" slow-motion at 960 frames per second, it only has a single 19-megapixel camera lens on its rear. The front facing camera is a 13MP shooter with an f/1.9 aperture.

There is 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage that can be expandable up to 512GB using a MicroSD card.

The new Xperia XZ3 has a six-inch display that the tech firm says can now display "more vibrant colours" and higher quality images and video in general by using award-winning TV technology found in the firm's high-end Bravia TV line. The handset measures 158 x 73 x 9.9mm and weighs 193 grams. It will likely be sporting a combination of glass and metal at the front and back. These design languages were first introduced with the launch of Xperia XZ2 back in February this year. The display itself is said to be a pOLED panel but the size is as yet unknown. You can now add a few animations to your 3D face scans, too, like Sony's version of Animoji. The dedicated camera button remains on the right-hand edge and USB Type-C remains at the button, with the 3.5mm headphone jack still absent. This will allow users to take advantage of bokeh and beauty functions in selfie mode at the same time.

One thing we didn't enjoy was the slightly odd placement of the Xperia XZ3's fingerprint sensor and camera. The device presented in the framework of the IFA 2018. Holding the phone horizontally will automatically activate the snapper.
