Sony Xperia Z3 leaks again, shows off matte back and rounded side profile


Sony Xperia Z3 back leak

We got more than a few good looks at what could be the still unannounced Sony Xperia Z3 last week. The leaks left little to the imagination, but one area of the phone not shown was its back. Some were hoping that for the Sony Xperia Z2 sequel, Sony would finally do away with the all-glass back cover, something we’ve never been a fan of since our Nexus 4 met an early demise a few years back. While today’s leak could show a deviation from a glass back, we’re still unsure…

Sony Xperia Z3 side leak

The few of you who purchased the Sony Xperia Z2 will no doubt remember the back of the device was outfitted with a plastic matte clear film to protect for added freshness. Because of that, we’re not entirely sure if what we’re looking at in this new leaked image is simply a plastic film over glass, or if Sony could actually be opting for an all aluminum device, a la the HTC One M8.

As more leaks continue to seep out from the woodwork, we’ll take this as another sign of the device’s impending release. Let’s hope that recent FCC filing means we can expect the Z3 to launch relatively soon here in the states, although we wont be holding our breath.

  1. Good looking device

  2. Nice looking, but I hope they make a curved back like moto X and htc One.

    1. I wouldn’t want all flagship phones to look alike. Diversity in design in good for consumers.

  3. Love the shape of that phone.

    1. personally, i actually dont like it. I really wanted a z2 for the specs and water proofing, but when i held the z1s at tmobile, it felt really uncomfortable. Maybe this one feels better.

  4. waiting for Xperia Z3 eagerly. But what about Note 4? Is Note 4 going to impress this time or will be beaten by Xperia Z3? http://www.note4o.com

  5. what do the z1, z2, and z3 all have in common? they all look the same! the z2 and this z3 leak looks the same. Im waiting for them to improve the camera even more to what it currently is. Less bezel, wireless charging and improved camera and ill buy the phone. today. throwing money at screen once it happens

    1. better camera? i thought that the camera on these was virtually the best aside from the nokia one. if i can get the z3 in the states soon after release, i may just get it instead of the note 4 which i doubt will be that great
