The Sony Xperia XZ3 tweaks the Xperia XZ2 design with a focus on AI features and improved photography.

Sony's very much forged its own path in the Android world, eschewing the trend for dual-lens cameras or notably flashy gimmicks for the most part and instead delivering a range of solid, if not always exciting phones under its Xperia brand. Its latest announced handset in the premium space is the Sony Xperia XZ3.

Design

  • New smoother design style.
  • Wide range of colours, although we might not see all of them.

Camera

  • Super slow motion at 1080p.
  • No dual lenses yet.

Performance

  • Should perform identically to other Snapdragon 845 phones.
  • Dynamic vibration is still a gimmick.
  • AI-assisted Side Sense makes apps easier to access.

Battery life

  • 3,330mAh battery onboard.

Early Verdict

  • Sony delivers another great looking handset.
  • Tough to stand out in the 2018 premium pack.

Pricing and availability

  • The Sony Xperia XZ3 doesn't have announced Australian pricing just yet.
  • In the UK it will cost £699, which would equate to around $1,299.

Can't wait for the Sony Xperia XZ3? The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact is easily our favourite smaller form factor premium phone for 2018.
