Isn’t Sony the most active brand when it comes to making successors for high-end devices? After the Xperia Z3 got launched recently, the company is working on the successor for its phablet Sony Xperia Z Ultra, and the successor is going to be called Sony Xperia Z3X. The details about this phablet have been around since July 2014, but some actual leaks are now seen in the wild.
The large phablet is going to have a 6.2-inch display, and the resolution will be 2560 x 1440 pixels (yes, a QHD display), and the main point of interest is the 4GB of RAM because the device will be running the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset, along with Adreno 430 GPU. The Snapdragon 810 chipset is not already available, and the production of this is expected to start in the first half of 2015. It will be an Octa-core CPU, with four Cortex-A57 cores and Cortex A-53 cores.
All these specs that got revealed, are via the specifications page on AnTuTu benchmark app, as the benchmark app was used by someone on one of the early trial devices. While the device is going to be running Android 4.4.2 KitKat, there is a new camera sensor that is shown on the leaked picture, and some details about it are out already. Sony’s curved photo sensor that was unveiled recently, is what is going to be a part of the camera module in the Xperia Z3X. The dimensions of the device: 69.5mm × 150.1mm × 7.9mm.
This curved photo sensor is said to be of 2/3-inch with 22.1-megapixel resolution and f/1.2 aperture for higher quality images, and reducing the noise when light passes through the edge of the lens. Having said all this, we have seen several fake benchmark results and fake leaks earlier too, thus we won’t vouch with the source.
