Z3 or possibly another Sony Xperia phone smiles for the camera

Xperia-Z3_5bSimilar to the Z3 Compact receiving photography treatment, the supposed Z3 is receiving similar treatment. A user of the Chinese web site Baidu has posted some photos of the alleged Z3 despite the fact that the design differs just a bit than previous design leaks. Of course design elements can change over time but it could be that we’re looking at a different phone entirely.

Sony is no longer supporting PlayStation Mobile for Android

PlayStation_Mobile_01

Sony is ending its attempt to bring its wildly successful console gaming brand to Android devices. PlayStation Mobile, which launched in 2012, was a hub that allowed high quality games to be accessible for PlayStation Certified devices. That certification will no longer be handed out to any future devices. Sony is keeping the service running smoothly on such devices running Android 4.4.2 and below; however, anything with Android 4.4.3 and up are being left in the dark. With future versions of Android, there are no guarantees that PlayStation Mobile will continue to operate correctly with software updates.

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact gets photographed again

Sony_Xperia-Z3-Compact_Leak_01

About a month ago, we had a chance to see the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact when it posed alongside the Xperia Z3. Today, more images have leaked, but this time they are solo shots from Mr. Blurrycam.

It’s also possible that the previous leak isn’t the same phone as this one since the front-facing camera is in a different spot. However, we know manufacturers have various prototypes. The source indicates it will feature a 4.6-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 801, 3 GB of RAM, 20.7 MP Exmor RS rear camera, and stereo speakers.

Owners of the Sony Xperia Z2 may notice a new application available in their Update Centre, the Sony Movie Creator app. The app is similar to some features that Google+ offers for automatically generating movies. Movie Creator auto-creates short films of about 30 seconds in length using photos and videos taken with the phone. The films that are produced are called “Highlight Movies” and Sony’s system will notify you when a new one is generated.

It is only a matter of time before Sony unveils its upcoming flagship handset. The Xperia Z3 has leaked in pictures and we have already learned about the specifications. So Sony would be doing the right thing by announcing it sooner rather than later to prevent any further leaks. Today, though, we have some more images that allegedly show the handset’s side and back panel.

Updated version of Sony Xperia Z3 pays a visit to the FCC

sony_d6653_fcc_filing

Last week a Sony device carrying model number D6603 was spotted in an FCC filing. A new device going by model number D6653, which has been identified as the Sony Xperia Z3 has surfaced in a new filing with a new FCC ID number, PY7PM-0806. It is suspected this is the international version of the Xperia Z3 which will surface in Asian markets, notably in Japan with NTT DoCoMo. Like the filing for the D6603, this latest update does not provide much in the way of useful information other than serving as an indicator that the device is very close to being released to the market. Sources suspect Sony is shooting for a September release date.

New specs leak for Sony Xperia Z3

alleged_sony_xperia_z3_leak_071214_1

We have already seen a few images of the Sony Xperia Z3 surface, including some that contrast it with a Samsung Galaxy Note, but details about the hardware have been scant. Tipster @evleaks has supposedly unearthed some details about the hardware. According to a new post, the Xperia Z3 will feature a Snapdragon 801 running at 2.4GHz and mated with an Adreno 330 GPU. This is not a major step up from the Xperia Z2 and if accurate would be a disappointment for those who were hoping to see the Snapdragon 805 used. Other specs are more in line with what has been suspected for the device, including 3GB of RAM, a 20.7MP camera, and a 5.15-inch screen running at a full 1080p. The Xperia Z3 appears to be slated to come with Android 4.4.4 preloaded.
