With the Xperia Z3 set to be announced next week, all the leaks are coming in. Xperia Blog has gotten their hands on some of the clearest pics we’ve seen thus far, of the device in all different angles and even disassembled. Looking at the picture, we can now see the the device will come with a hefty 3100maH battery. You can check out all of the photos of the device via the source link.
Sony’s Xperia Z3 Compact is expected to be a mini version of the Z3 flagship, and the phone recently passed through the FCC in two separate variants for different carriers: FCC ID PY7PM-0810 and PY7PM-0812.
According to the FCC documents, the device will have a 4.57-inch screen, and overall dimensions of 127 x 64.9 mm. That comes out to be the third highest screen to phone size ratio of any Sony Xperia device — 69.85 percent. The original Xperia Z was 69.83 percent, the ZL was 74.97 percent and the T2 Ultra was 71.69 percent.
Sony’s press invite for its IFA 2014 press conference and product unveiling has leaked online, and it teases some new devices as well.
The event will occur on Wednesday, September 3, from 16:15 to 17:00 CEST and, according to the photo above, will include new Xperia unveilings, which was already expected. We have less than a month until IFA, so expect more of these leaks to come out before then!

Sony has been unveiling a number of new Xperia models, and their latest was unveiled today – the Sony Xperia T3. This new device shares a number of internal features with the T2 Ultra, but on the outside is quite different.
The T3 has been hailed by Sony as the worlds thinnest 5.5-inch smartphone, coming in at just 7mm thin. For comparison, this is 1mm thinner than the new Samsung Galaxy S5. Unfortunately, the internal components aren’t as impressive. The Xperia T3 features a quad core 1.4GHz Qualcomm processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, though that is expandable. The screen is 1,280 x 720 pixels and the device ships with Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box.
When a carrier like Verizon decides to expand its device selection, everyone wins. Today, we hear that Big Red will be adding the new Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. When? We do not know. There is a very good chance, though, that it arrives alongside the Xperia Z2. Both Sony devices have been said to be heading that way for quite a few months.
If both Sony devices landed on Verizon, would you be interested in either one?

A GFX benchmark for a new Sony device has shown up in the wild. The device has a model number of D2403 and looks like it’ll be a pretty solid mid-range offering in Sony’s Xperia lineup. We’re seeing a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel rear camera, and a 4.4 inch qHD screen. Best of all, it looks like the phone will have 16 GB of internal storage, which is a rarity for budget devices.
This one won’t knock off Sony’s high end flagships, but for people looking to save a few bucks, keep an eye out for this one to become official.
