Sony was once criticized for the stale design it has been wearing for years. Ironically, it could be scathing to keep changing things. The Xperia XZ2, including Compact and Premium versions, is so far removed from its kin that it is barely recognizable as a Sony smartphone. The upcoming Xperia XZ3, however, could change things again to give it a more familiar face. At least familiar with Samsung Galaxy S users for two years.
Sony abandoned the old blocky design of its phones and hugged curves. In the Xperia XZ2, these curves manifest themselves in the corners and on the back. Based on these renderings presented by CompareRaja and OnLeaks new curves will appear on the Xperia XZ3 and they will appear on the sides of the screen.
Yes, it seems that Sony will take over curved screen edges Ala Samsung Edge design. You might even be fooled into the idea that this would be a Samsung phone with an infinity display, if not the thick upper and lower bezels for which Sony may be notorious. Oh, and there is still the pointless Sony branding on the lower bezel. However, considering the similarity to a Galaxy S9, this branding may actually be necessary now.
Of course, the renderers do not give us any details about the smartphone's specifications, but they do show what the Xperia XZ3 could not do . There will not be a 3.5mm headphone jack for one. Still it will have the earlier leaked double cameras. Considering that the Xperia XZ2 did not have both, it's not completely surprising. Maybe Sony reserves the dual cameras for its premium models.
If so, the expected specifications of the Xperia XZ3 will not deviate too far from its predecessor. These include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, a maximum of 6 GB of RAM and a 5.7 inch screen with 2160 × 1080 Full HD + without notch. With the exception of the upgraded 13-megapixel camera, the Xperia XZ3 is unlikely to differ much from the Xperia XZ2, except for its looks.
