  • The Sony Xperia XZ3 Finally Launches

The Xperia XZ3 measures at 158x73x9.9mm and weighs 193g, and actually has Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and back, with a rather thin aluminum frame all around.

Changes to the Selfie Cam: Sony's sticking with a single 19-MP rear shooter, though Sony says it streamlined the interface of the camera app to help users more easily switch between photo and video modes.

Let's start off with the tech-specs first, Sony fans will be happy to know that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor is on board (as expected) but however, the RAM power is not 6GB as previously rumoured, it's still stuck on 4GB of RAM. This handset is IP68 certified for water and dust resistance, while it comes with new Sony Dynamic Vibration System, and Hi-Res audio.

As for the battery, the Sony Xperia XZ3 has a 3,330mAh one, which is just a tiny bit bigger than the 3,180mAh battery in the Sony Xperia XZ2. This is not exactly a huge battery considering the phone's display size, but it's possible that it will be more than enough to get you through the day, we'll see.

What do you think about the design and specifications of the Sony Xperia XZ3?

The rest of the features in the Xperia XZ3 remain unchanged.

Finally, Sony made a decision to go with a new colour for its Xperia XZ3, which comes in standard black and silver, its signature Forest Green and an all-new Bordeaux Red.

The Latest Android: Android 9 Pie arrived earlier this month, and is rolling out to Google's devices, like the original Pixel and Pixel 2. An Australian launch will hopefully follow soon after. Regular PIN and pattern unlock features are included here as well, while Android 9 Pie comes with the latest Android security patch pre-installed. There's also 64GB of storage, which is now a bare minimum for a high-end smartphone.

RBI annual report: 99.3% of demonetised currency returned to banking system
However, this is more than double the amount of Rs. 3,421 crore that was spent in the previous year (July 2016 to June 2017). The government, while announcing demonetisation, had also cited checking counterfeit notes as one of the reasons.

Sony Xperia XZ3 is slimmer, taller and lighter compared to the Xperia XZ2. The Japanese manufacturer is known for the rapid cadence at which it launches new smartphone iterations, and we've come to expect a (slightly) revamped Xperia model at every major mobile trade show.

Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC, USB Type-C port.

The XZ2 will get upgraded to that at some point, but it doesn't have it yet and probably won't be supported with updates for as long as the XZ3 is. We're still waiting for more info regarding the device's availability in other markets.
