The Xperia Z2 was just released back in April, but that hasn’t stopped Sony from already announcing its sequel. Just moments after they unveiled the SmartWatch 3 with Android Wear they officially showed off the Sony Xperia Z3. The Z3 doesn’t offer a whole lot of differences from the Z2, but it has changes where it counts.

The Xperia Z3 still has a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a 20.7MP camera, and waterproofing. The biggest aesthetic change is a more rounded aluminum frame, which should make it much more comfortable to hold. Sony has also added a new wide-angle 25mm lens, extra-high ISO 12,800 light sensitivity, and a slightly more powerful 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor. Audiophiles will be happy to hear new DSEE HX audio upscaling and digital noise cancellation.

The Xperai Z3 will come out some time this fall in four colors. Sony did not mention any carriers specifically, but there will be at least one version with LTE data for North America. We would love to see this device come to the States. Would you be interested in the Sony Xperia Z3?
