Sony asks “What could these numbers possibly mean?”

in Rumours, Xperia Z3 series

IFA 2014 TeaseSony has released another small teaser ahead of IFA 2014, which starts next week. Sony asks “What could these numbers possibly mean?” and then gives what looks like the following dimensions:
124mm x 6.4mm x ?

These numbers do not tally with the leaked dimensions we have seen for the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact, so either the rumours are wrong or the above ‘dimensions’ actually point to something else.

Rumoured dimensions for the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact

Xperia Z3: 146.46 x 72.09 x 7.3 mm
Xperia Z3 Compact: 126.98 x 64.9 x 8.8 mm

It may not even point to a smartphone, given that it was tweeted by a Sony social media account, rather than from Sony Mobile. We’d love to hear your thoughts on what these numbers could mean in the comments below.

Sony IFA Teaser

  • MarkLastiwka

    maybe the width and thickness of the Z3 Compact Tablet?

  • SopNaw

    6.44mm? Hm.. The Z3 Compact Tablet, for sure.

  • goldenblls

    124mm is the height of the Tablet Compact?

  • king-james

    The size of the Tablet Compact. Look at the band: 124 x 6.4 x 200 mm

  • i would scream of joy if all leaks of the z3 turned out to be false

  • apolloa

    Well, 124mm is about 5mm longer than my Nexus 5, so it can’t be the new Z3 handset as the Nexus 5 has a 5″ screen, unless Sony drastically reduce the bezels?
    Nah I’m going for the width of the Z3 Compact Tablet, it’s the same width as the iPad Mini, more or less.

  • XPerians

    I’ll celebrate with you

  • tor

    its 8.6 – Z3 compact

  • DBS

    It’s the Z3 Compact people. 124mm is 12.4cm. That’s obviously a Compact phone, NOT a tablet.

    12.4cm high
    0.64cm thick.

    All that’s missing if the screen size but I’m betting on something between 4.5″ and 4.7″

  • Danny

    124 mm x 6.4 mm x ?. 4.8 inch (height) x .25 inch (thick) x (Width ?)

    sounds like Sony releasing a midrange Xperia device, with M2 Aqua for Low-range and the Z3 and Z3 Compact for the High-end.

    Or is it Sony new Windows/Firefox OS phone?

  • Vuyo Ncube

    The numbers, Mason. What do they mean?!

  • Guest

    And the 124 given it is not related would be???? Xperia Z3 compact?

  • Tjaldid

    Unless it is the shorter side of the tablet.

  • DBS

    Doubt it. Not to mention it almost matches the rumours on the Z3 Compact. The difference between 12.4 and 12.7 is very small and easily miss-measured. The Z3 Tablet Compact is waterproof. That means it will always be bigger. If it’s an 8″ tablet, it will have a size of around 9″ to count for the waterproofing.

  • shanefalco

    z3 mini or e3 ipx? 4.3″ 960×540 8mpx snap400quad 1.2ghz ? it’s not z3 compact!

  • shanefalco

    tablet z3 mini 8inch: 124 (height) x 6.4 (depth) x 210 (larger)

  • Jill Valentine

    Who fucking cares? People bored with Sony, nothing new(look and feel, design or even new tech) Sony Xperia is not cool enough to win other competitors, Sony’ve already died.

    iPhone 6 is coming guys!!!

  • QBerto

    Plot Twist: Sony is making T-shirts now

  • Tech Gospel

    Z3 Compact Tablet

  • no805

    I don’t see no 805 =(

  • Anticipation

    So shall I!

  • Bitch Valantine

    Thus why he said we’d screem for joy IF the LEAKS turned out to be FALSE. ???

  • i LOOOOVE the omnibalance design if they made z3 in a unibody design not a seperate frame but the back being metal merged with the frame in a attractive color and mildly thin bezels with an oled screen i would be all over it

  • Sanyam Jain

    God please the rumoured pics we saw of z3 were of any other device this device as 6.4 mm thick flagship

  • Soj Varghese

    Another midrange Xperia of 4.4”. Size 124*6.4*64 mm size

  • Madhu PV

    An i-fan detected :P

  • blitz_arc

    i feel bored of iphone design since ages ago.

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    I think it’s going to be a great device

    As for the measurements it’s either the tablet or their smartwatch

  • Yogesh Marwaha

    Smartwatch! really?

  • ShinOrochiX

    The only number I want to see is 4.4 for the Xperia SP.

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    Ever heard of a PipBoy?

  • Toh Ler Kang

    Could the unknown number be the “length” of the smartphone?
    Such as Z3 Tablet Compact?

  • niclas

    away , with the glass panel back, and made the back as the z2 tablet rubber , glass is so freaking slippery have dropp to z2 phones in the stone ground cr´rash:/,

  • Kenni

    It’s too thin for the Z3 Compact, so it has to be the Tablet…

  • hogehoge

    Z3 tablet compact ! not Z3 compact.

  • saxva

    hey man, aren`t you bored with Samsung or iPhone desing ?? they are same for a very long time

  • saxva

    It`s name will be SONY XPERIA Z3 COMPACT TABLET. So it will be very small, as like Ipad Mini or Something like that

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    No offense but you described a high end Samsung device, where Samsung would’ve actually started using premium materials. But if that what suits you it sees Ike Samsung or LG may fit your requirements

  • igel705

    Maybe the screen size of Z3 Compact….would be great if Sony managed an nearly no beezle phone :-)

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Pfft who the fuck want an iPhone nowadays…. When android phones are way better :)

  • xperiafan324

    Width and thickness of the z3 8″ tablet probably.

  • davidroid

    Maybe the dimensions of the xperia z3 Tablet

  • davidroid

    Probably the dimensions of the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact

  • vigneshprince

    iphone hahah! never cared!

  • xPEriaFaNs

    I tried to do some measurement based on the silhouette in the teaser video:×373.png,
    this is the results:

    Can’t wait anymore! #SonyIFA

  • progadgets2

    The small 2 devices really fit the measurement for Z3 and compact but the bigger device(tablet) seems to have different dimension 116mm x 201mm x ??
    When compared to the teaser above, this is a different device.

  • apolloa

    Yay the revolutionary iPhone 6 with the killer NFC feature… [rolleyes] I’ve even read the iPhone 6 is still going to only have 1gb ram, amazing value for money, not!
    iOS is in the dark ages compared to what Android can do these days.

  • Guest

    it’s a smartwatch

  • Dan Vafidis


  • Cezary Raczy?ski

    It could be Xperia Z3 Compact Tablet ;)

  • MasterYoda

    I’m so funking bored of people like u, if you don’t like Sony and their products than please don’t visit this page and bother us wit your unless coments.

    And to be clear a big amount of people changed from iPhone to Z1c and by sure you don’t need to be a prophet to say that the amount of people changing to the Z3c will be huge.

  • Muhd Ihsan

    nothing new? what about dual-front facing speakers,4k recording and active noise cancellation,not to forget water-proof,micro sd card slot,full hd display and nfc on z2 which clearly will not be featured on iphone 6,6s,and maybe even 7.

  • Battal Aljadei

    Xperia Z Ultra: 179.4 x 92.2 x 6.5 mm (6.4 inches display)
    Xperia Z2 Tablet: 266 x 172 x 6.4 mm (10.1 inches display)
    Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact’s 8 inches display = 124mm-W and 6.4mm-T and about 220mm-H

  • blitz_arc

    agreed! i just realise that non of that features are in any iphone. but yet people still bought it although they are hell expensive. dumb people are dumb.

  • Mac

    Maybe, I mean just maybe the dimensions point 2 how much screen there is in the z3 compact body. I mean it obviously has 2 be thinner bezels since it’s almost the same overall size as z1 compact but with a pretty much bigger screen. If I’m not gettin’ my z1c back from repair I will totally consider this one, If they start the roll out soon enough.

  • misha sikmashvili

    these dimentions are of the xperia tablet z3 compact, 124 mm is width and 6.4 mm – thickness

  • samsung has an ugly frontside not melting in with the screen itself

    samsung has an ugly backside being dimpled

    both lg and samsung has round shapes with an exception for note 4 which still has those ugly capacitive buttons and huge home button

  • someone

    I guess, that’s going to be Sony Xperia Z2 Ultra or whatever they’ll call the successor of Sony Xperia Z Ultra!

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    I’m just saying, if both stepped up their game in the design and premium materials department it seems like the dream phone you just described. Especially LG, if they make a metal phone with a AMOLED screen it fits your criteria

  • Tashiro Yu
  • Kenni

    Did you account for the tablet being slightly behind the other two devices? Couldn’t it be 124 mm instead of 116.4?

  • Leé Anzüi

    hoping for a Z2 Ultra

  • Leé Anzüi

    Z2 ultra :)

  • Shubham Mutreja

    i phones got same look too bro for years

  • Mohammed Khired

    i think you said that because ZZCOOL mentioned the Oled screen…

    and the OLED screens are awesome btw

    and what he described doesn’t resemble even remotely to samsung or lg design language

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    I think LG has it in the to make a premium device, while not any time soon. While Samsung seems to be dragging their feet. And LG seems the most likely to use AMOLED because they just recently used it in their 4k TV. And HTC and Sony seems content with their screens. Sony has something to prove south their display and TV capabilities, and I’m pretty sure after samsung trolled the HTC M7, HTC wants to prove their superior.
