Sony Xperia XZ3: features, price, release

During the IFA 2018 in Berlin, Sony presented the Xperia XZ3: Snapdragon 845, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. 6-inch P-OLED screen

Sony presented at IFA 2018 in Berlin its new top-of-the-line smartphone, the Xperia XZ3. In terms of design, the Japanese company does not change: usual generous size and very angular shapes. Definitely more interesting is the 6-inch OLED screen and QHD+ resolution.

The display will be the real strength of this new Android smartphone. Aspect ratio 18:9 (like all top of the range released in recent months) which allows you to see the content on the screen at its best even if there is no lack of fairly thick bezels both above and below the display. The side edges are tilted and interactive thanks to the Side Sense function, as already seen for example on the Samsung Galaxy in recent years. On the other hand, the screen is equipped with Triluminos technology, for Full HD colors always realistic, and X-Reality technology that reconstructs images to make them look even better. These are tools that Sony uses on its top of the range televisions and that we will now also see on a smartphone.
