Sony is quickly looking to release a new flagship to their already impressive Z3 series. The last phone, the Sony Z2, was released back in March but even then, people were already anticipating the Z3 as rumors were already flying. Although most large phone companies are content with releasing a new phone about once per year, this tech giant has been averaging a new device once every 6 months or so. Right now, we are looking at some time in September as a release date and a price around SAR 3600 .
Although August is coming close to an end, there is still a slight chance the Sony Xperia Z3 Saudi Arabia release date could still be in August. There is a larger chance though that the release date will be announced at the IFA 214 in early September. This is the same show where the Xperia Z1 was announced in 2013. There are also other subtle suggestions that hint a September release date. There is a competition currently being held by the German branch of Vodafone which ends at the end of September which includes the purchase of an Xperia Z3.
Like most other specs regarding the Z3, nothing has been released that provides a hard idea of what it will cost. The only price we can provide is based on the release prices of other previous Sony Z models. Due to the previous pricing of the Z1 and Z2, anticipate the Sony Xperia Z3 Saudi Arabia price to be around SAR 3600 . The direct competitors of this device will likely be the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the iPhone 6 so their pricing may have an impact on the final price of the Xperia Z3.
One of the first rumors which emerged is that the Sony Xperia Z3 could have a curved display. This trend is just emerging in the smartphone world as the technology has just became readily available. LG and Samsung are a bit ahead of Sony, both already with one device introduced with the curved screen. This feature will raise the price of the phone so there’s a chance Sony won’t add this feature in order to appeal to a wider audience.
Some other anticipated specs in the upcoming Z3 are a 2.5 GHz processor, 4 GB RAM and a 5.5” IPS display with a 2k resolution. This will be resistant from dust and water and also have an exceptionally high camera quality of 23.7 MP with a pulse flash. The camera will obviously be the standout feature on the device as it’s also rumored to have a 16 MP front camera. This could easily replace any typical point and shoot camera, eliminating the need to carry around a bulky camera. Also expected in the camera are features such as a G lens, CMOS image sensor, optical zoon 6x and integrated screen display.
The Bottom Line
We aren’t too aware of the actual physical appearance of the device yet but what we do know is all good. The expected PVD coating will give it a mirrored and stainless steel look which is appealing to most everyone. The camera quality is something to really get excited about as it is much higher than any other smartphone!
