The Sony Xperia XZ3 is an Android smartphone manufactured and marketed by Sony. Part of the Xperia X series, the device was announced to the public at a press conference held at the annual 2018 IFA Berlin event on August 30, 2018.[2] It is the first Xperia device with an OLED display and it features the same Dynamic Vibration System as seen on the Xperia XZ2.[3]

Hardware[edit]

Design[edit]

The Xperia XZ3 uses Sony's new "Ambient Flow" design, similar to that on the XZ2, however it comes with a 6 inches (150 mm) curved OLED display, which is wrapped around a new 7000 series aluminium frame. The front and back glass on the device are both made of Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The fingerprint scanner is also rear-mounted as seen on the Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Premium. The phone features two front-facing speakers, supposedly the same units used on the XZ2.

The Xperia XZ3's dimensions are 158 mm (6.2 in) in height, with a width of 73 mm (2.9 in) and a depth of 9.9 mm (0.39 in) and weighs approximately 193 g (6.8 oz).[3]

Display and performance[edit]

Sony had not used OLED panels in their smartphones previously, however the XZ3 is the first Sony smartphone to come with an OLED panel. It is a 6 inches (150 mm) QHD+ (2880x1440) display, with a 2:1 aspect ratio (marketed as 18:9). Being a Sony device, it features their TRILUMINOS and X-Reality technology and supports 10-bit colour, which means it is certified for the BT.2020 standard and HDR10 playback.

The XZ3 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, coupled with either 4 or 6 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and the Adreno 630 GPU. The device only comes with one internal storage option of 64 GB with 4 GB of RAM in most markets, however it is sold with 64 GB of storage and 6 GB of RAM in Taiwan.[4]

Camera[edit]

Sony is using the familiar IMX400 sensor in the XZ3. This sensor was first featured in the XZs and XZ Premium. It has a RAM chip sandwiched between the sensor and on control circuitry layers which serves as a large and fast buffer to where the sensor can temporarily offload a significant amount of captured data before transferring it to the phone's internal memory for processing.

The same MotionEye camera setup from the XZ2 is used in this device. It consists of a 19 MP 1/2.3” Exmor RS for mobile sensor with a 1.22 μm pitch, f/2.0 aperture and 25mm wide G lens. It uses Sony's BIONZ image processing engine. Furthermore, it is also capable of shooting 960 fps Super Slow Motion video.[3]

Battery[edit]

The Xperia XZ3 comes with a non-removable 3300 mAh battery. With the XZ3, Sony has abandoned QuickCharge 3.0 in favour of USB Power Delivery (USB-PD), but it still includes Qnovo Adaptive Charging. This allows the device to monitor the cell's electrochemical processes in real time and adjust charging parameters accordingly to minimize cell damage and extend the battery unit's lifespan.

Software[edit]

The Xperia XZ3 is the first Android device to be launched with Android 9.0 Pie. It includes a new feature from Sony called "Side Sense". Side Sense is a custom drawer-like interface that is built-in to the stock Xperia launcher, it can be triggered by tapping twice anywhere along the curved display edge of the XZ3.
