Sony Mobile has formally unveiled the Xperia Z3+ (E6553) and Xperia Z3+ Dual (E6533). The Xperia Z3 Plus (E65XX) is no different to the Japanese-bound Xperia Z4, with the same design and hardware specs. The Xperia Z3+ is both slimmer (6.9mm vs 7.3mm) and lighter (144g vs 152g) than the Xperia Z3. We’re also excited to see that 32GB internal storage is now standard across all variants (21.9GB usable).
A quick reminder on the specifications, the Xperia Z3+ sports a 5.2-inch 1080p display (424 PPI pixel density and screen-to-phone ratio of 70.87%), Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 64-bit chipset, 3GB RAM, 20.7MP Exmor RS rear camera and 5.1MP Exmor R front-facing camera with 25mm wide-angle lens. The rear camera includes the same large 1/ 2.3-inch image sensor found in the Xperia Z3, including an ISO 12800 sensitivity and F 2.0 aperture.
The Xperia Z3+ has IP65/IP68 certification for dust and water resistance, but features a capless USB port which means worrying about your charging flap falling off becomes a thing of the past. Sony maintains that the Xperia Z3+ will have a two-day battery life as seen on the Xperia Z3, despite sporting a lower capacity battery (2930mAh vs 3100mAh).
The Xperia Z3+ has dimensions of 146.3 x 71.9 x 6.9mm and weighs 144 grams. The Xperia Z3+ will launch in four colours (Black, White, Copper and Aqua Green) when it is released globally in June 2015.
