Sony Xperia Z3 Coming in September with New Design, but No Snapdragon 805 CPU

It’s no news that Sony plans to launch its next flagship smartphone in September. The information was confirmed back in February during Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade fair by Sony Mobile’s Creative Director, Kurozumi Yoshiro, who said that the Xperia Z2 would be his company’s flagship device only for the first half of the year.

One of the reasons that Sony Mobile plans to launch not one, but two flagship smartphones in just one year is market share. The Japanese company aims to become the number three smartphone maker in the world, which is no small feat given the rivals that Sony must compete with. Anyway, it appears that new details on the upcoming Sony Xperia Z3 have just surfaced online and there is both bad and good news regarding the upcoming device. According to DooMLoRD, the XDA forum developer specialized in Xperia leaks, the next flagship smartphone will arrive in September with an entirely different design.

The so-called Xperia Z3 will feature slim bezels and will be only 7mm thick. The bad news is that the smartphone will not pack the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset, which means that it will be based on the same Snapdragon 801 SoC that’s been integrated into the Xperia Z2 as well. DooMLoRD also claims that Sony does not plan to release an Xperia Z Ultra successor, so those preferring Sony’s high-end phablet may want to think about alternatives.
