Sony have finally gotten around to announcing their latest flagship device. The Xperia Z3+ offers somewhat incremental updates over the previous Xperia flagship from last year. The new specs include the latest Snapdragon 810 chipset from Qualcomm clocked at 2.0GHz and 1.5GHz with 3GB of RAM, a 5MP front facing camera, and thinner profile.
The Xperia Z3+ stems from the Xperia Z4 that was announced for release in Japan a month ago. The Name different is aimed at identifying the Z3+ similarities with the previous Z3. Something Sony aren’t worried about in Japan.
The new flagship mostly offers a bump in performance with a slightly thinner design at 6.9mm. The battery itself has also dropped from 3,100mAh to 2,900mAh.
The design on the device is mostly identical, but Sony have removed the flap cover on the MicroUSB slot and relocated it to the bottom of the device, which is great to see, as it doesn’t affect the water proofing aspects of the device and we are still IP65/68 certified.
The Xperia Z3+ arrives this June globally and will be available in single and dual sim versions.
