Sony Xperia Z3 leaks in copper alongside new E Ink SmartBand



Earlier today we saw a few images of the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact leak out onto the interwebs ahead of Sony’s IFA event scheduled for tomorrow. While the Z3 Compact showed a wide range of colors — black, white, orange, and green — it seems Sony could have a color reserved solely for its bigger brother, the Sony Xperia Z3.

Shown in a leaked promo image for the device, the Sony Xperia Z3 is pictured with an interesting copper paint job, different from the usual gold/white color trend we’ve seen in recent months. What’s more is you’ll notice a still unannounced wearable featuring an E Ink display, rumored to launch as the “SmartBand Talk.”

Sony SmartBand Talk E Ink

No word on what kind of functionality Sony’s SmartBand will offer (looks more like a fitness band than full fledged smartwatch), but with an E Ink display, you can bet the selling feature will be on its battery life. We wont have to wait much longer before we learn more. Sony’s IFA keynote is tomorrow at 10AM PT, so stay tuned for more.

  1. That looks exactly like the Z2… Although the Z2 is not ugly, I don’t think it’ll win much design awards.
    It’ll come down to the improvement of the specs, camera. and how small the bezels for most people here.

    1. I still have this thought in the back of my mind that this won’t actually be a z3, but a Z2s

      1. I don’t get how…maybe they will pull a Google at the last day and say haha its z2s

  2. I want Z3 on Verizon in Copper… please.. thank you

  3. Android Wear + Color eInk = winner!!

  4. That copper is hawt.

  5. Cooper looks so beautiful and sexy than the ugly gold phone.

  6. It’s … beautiful! And I don’t mean that woman.

  7. I like the Smartband. E-Ink is the way to go. I travel and spend a lot of time outdoors. It’s bad enough having to charge my phone ever day, let alone another device. Th elack of heart rate/sleep monitors have prevented me from getting a pebble, so this Sony device could be just what I need.

  8. Phandroid please get rid of the share buttons below esp. On mobile. I have all this on my browser to share with. Plus it take up to much room on screen real annoying
