Sony Xperia Z3 Dual TD (D6683) to launch with 4G dual SIM support

by XB on 2nd May 2015

in Xperia Z3 series

Xperia Z3 DualSony Mobile will shortly launch a new Xperia Z3 Dual variant in Hong Kong with model number D6683. This particular model will support 4G LTE on both dual SIMs, so for users in Hong Kong it is likely to support both China Mobile and China Unicom 4G networks. No price or launch date has been set and don’t expect this variant to launch outside of China.

  • Shehab Skull

    I just want an z3 with non dual sim in the middle east >_< I really like this big boy , but I also hate dual sim phones ! I hope the z4 will not be like his brother -_- I DON'T WANT dual sim flagships in my country (EGYPT) .

  • theskig

    So it supports 2 LTE lines at same time? Both connected or not?

  • i like it

  • theskig

    I don’t believe you can’t find a single SIM Z3 in Egypt

  • Shehab Skull

    Trust me all is dual sim version only in Egypt,Suadia Arabia and all other countries in the middle east you can check this by yourself : (Suadia Arabia) (Egypt)

    However I can wait for the z4 still happy with my z :3

  • P9

    this is what Sony replies to us when we say Sony releases 2 flagships ayear.
    Sony be like, how about 2 years a flagship? LOL

  • theskig

    Very strange if you imagine that in many countries like here in Italy it’s quite difficult to find one! I had to order mine from Hong Kong!
    Btw many greetings to all people from Egypt, one very close friend of mine is from Faiyum. I spent some beautiful days there!

  • Makozak

    I live in Lebanon and have a Z3 Single Sim :)

  • Svnjay

    Why couldn’t they just do the Z4 Dual instead and give me the Z4 Ultra while they’re at it?

  • Shehab Skull

    Send me one :P

  • Shehab Skull

    I am happy to know that someone had enjoyed his time in our country ^^ We welcome you in any time :)

  • monx®

    does this means dual standby up to LTE on both sim cards?
    currently my D6633 can support 4G on both sim of course but if 1 sim is set to 4G, another is capped to 2G only & vice versa swappable.

  • Mokhtar Mouhib

    Still waiting for the new flagship .. I want to upgrade come oon

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Lol true that

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

  • Mads

  • Brian De Guzman

    it’s not even 1 year since z3 has been released

  • mUSICA

    Few Weeks, Few Weeks , Lolipop For Older Z Series….waitng Game

  • djsilentg

    Does anyone in the UK have a dual xperia z3 cause i’m thinking of getting one. Are they good?

  • Azar

    Dude just don’t use the 2nd sim slot then.

  • John Jay

    Both Sims maybe can use 4G signals in both sims, but the question is can both network data be use simultaneously? no, still either of the sim., its just the matter of convenience maybe that both sims need not to configure which network type as both are ready. This means it will suck the battery fast, knowing that 4G/LTE is battery hog, so as the heating issue when data is turned on. unless they also upgraded the capacity of the battery to 3500 or even 4000 but I doubt.

  • Vuyo Ncube

    Z3 isn’t even a year old and people are already whining.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Im growing sick of people who complain about that lollipop never comes for older Xperia Z series, se it like this instead: IT WILL BE UPDATE. It will get the newer android version. Even after all the new z devices launched by Sony the first Z generations were not forgotten. They did keep up with the updates, altough the newer once recieved it earlier but i dont mind that. Xperia Z have seen updates like 4.1.2, 4.2.2, 4.3, 4.4.2, 4.4.4 and soon to be 5.0.2 and even perhaps 5.1 after that. Dont you dare to complain again…. Sent from an xperia Z user!

  • Problem is that it gets updates slower but that’s fixed with 5.1 so no complaints

  • Sadman Khan

    Off topic but. Can you work on Z3 Compact please? :’D

  • mUSICA

    dude. as u say ur sick of people who complain…. well those same ppl arent free every month…just like me there are ppl who wants the update b4 we leav for our jobs abroad…while we come home after a yr… so we dnt have time to wait for the update

  • omar

    Because sony is not in the game, z3 can’t compete with m9 s6 g4.

  • japolis

    you want the update because you work?
    what the actual fuck

  • omar
  • Luis Ramirez

    to be fair the xperia z was released with a oudated 4.x.x while everyone was up xP

  • browngeek

    FYI only China Mobile (Hong Kong) supports TD-LTE in Hong Kong. China Unicom (Hong Kong) operates through an MVNO. Both China Mobile and China Unicom have separate networks in Mainland China. Obviously this phone will be great for those who travel frequently to China. One sim for their HK number on FDD LTE and one sim for their China number on TD LTE.

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    yes you are correct 4GLTE is a battery killer on its own. However, if this phone supports dual 4G standby as we were led to believe, the real problem is when one sim is using 4G, the another sim, having roaming signals, will search its 4G signals but in vain. This action is really killing battery fast

  • imparanoic

    as it’s for china market, can see that it’s uses china 3g system, not hong kong ( which is gsm like most of the world), so no-no for me

    It is not easy like this .. I will have problems in rooting and getting the official updates , and when my z3 becomes old maybe I will not find a way to unlock the bootloader , and also I’am not sure if I will find a version of cm for him .

  • Azar

    In fact you can unlock any BL no matter which model, but yeah I know what you mean. I understand your pain. My friend has exynos note 3 and I feel so sad for him, and his development &roms.

  • monx®

    so i tested the firmware, no different other than new added band frequency support. not both sim on LTE/4G standby mode. one up to 4G, another capped to 2G. Lets move on.. :p

  • Wilhelm Wei

    How are software updates normally for variants like this? My D6683 is stuck in 5.0.2

  • Andrea Zuccaro

    Wilhelm, can you confirm your sony D6683 can get 4g signal on both sim? I need this feature cause my operator, the same on my 2 sim, has frequences from 3g to 4g signal (when i’m in 2g area, goes roaming and don’t want the second sim on roaming all the time). Thanks.

    Ps: Battery?

  • Andrea Zuccaro

    You tested the firmware on different phone model? Cause this feature could be linked to hardware, not software. So, have you tried model d6683? Thanks

  • Renovatio

    So, can both sim get 3g/4g signal at same time?

  • Renovatio

    So, can both sim get 3g/4g signal at same time? Please

  • Emil Oskarsson

    I don’t know since I have the global c6603 model and not the dual sim model :p
