Sony Xperia Z3 And Xperia Z3 Compact Announced

Sony recently announced its flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z3 at the IFA 2014 event in Berlin. It comes with a 5.2 inch Full HD display and 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor. Apart from that, Sony has also unveiled a mini version of this device, the Xperia Z3 Compact. Both of these smartphones packs a 20.7 megapixel camera, 4G Connectivity, Android 4.4 OS and more. Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact are the world’s first smartphones with ISO 12800 sensitivity for superior photos, even in low light.

“At Sony Mobile, ‘flagship’ now means offering a choice to consumers of enjoying a large screen Xperia Z3 for immersive entertainment or a more compact, lighter Xperia Z3 Compact that doesn’t ask you to compromise on features. Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact deliver leading innovations such as unique Sony camera experiences and, for the first time, PS4 Remote Play in two beautifully designed, fully waterproof smartphones.”
