Sony Xperia Z3+ to be launched in June, price not decided




Sony has announced its premium version, Xperia Z3 smartphone, known as the Xperia Z3+, which is thinner and lighter than the original, and features an upgraded processor.

The Xperia Z3+ has the same height and width dimensions as the Xperia Z3, but is thinner than its predecessor, at 6.9mm as opposed to 7.3mm. As a result, it is also lighter in weight at 144 grams.

Sony goes further by pretty much reissuing the Z3+ with refreshed internal specs and one rather nice external upgrade. The new handset is still waterproof and dustproof, but its USB port no longer requires a flap to protect it from water ingress.

The processor has been upgraded from a quad-core to an octa-core, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, which Sony claims “lets you browse faster than ever and get the optimal graphics experience”.

The Z3+ has the same 5.2-inch full HD 1080p ‘triluminous’ display as the Z3, and the same 20.7MP front-facing camera with all Sony’s bells and whistles such as Superior Auto, which analyses the photographic environment and adjusts settings to make photos looks their best.

The Z3+’s battery is smaller than the Z3’s (2,900mAh rather than 3,100mAh), but Sony claims this equates to two days of battery life.

The Xperia Z3+ will launch globally in June 2015, and will be available in a range of colours such as black, white, copper (exclusive to Vodafone) and ice green (exclusive to Carphone Warhouse). Pricing is yet to be announced.
