The Sony Xperia Z4, the follow up to the flagship Xperia Z3, was announced by Sony around April of this year but it turned out the name Z4 was exclusive to the Japanese market. In other parts of the world, including the Philippines, the new Android phone is going to be called the Xperia Z3+. The Xperia Z3+ is exactly the same as the Xperia Z4 so there is nothing new in the announcement from Sony, just the name. That goes without saying that the design and the specs are the same.
The main specs of the Xperia Z3+ include a 5.2-inch, 1080p display, a 2.0GHz Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 20.7-megapixels rear camera, a 5.1 megapixel front shooter with 22mm wide-angle lens and 2,930mAh battery. The size is slim at 6.9mm thickness and light at only 144 grams. The Xperia Z3+ is IPX5/IPX8 rated which means it is resistant to water and dust. The phone will run Android 5.0.
For storage, the Sony Xperia Z3+ offers 32GB of internal storage with a MicroSD card which can accommodate up to 128GB of additional storage. The Sony Xperia Z3+ will be available in black, white, copper, and aqua green.
The Sony Xperia Z3+ will be available globally, hopefully including the Philippines, in June. We can expect single-SIM and dual-SIM configurations. As to pricing, nothing is known at this point but expect it to be quite hefty considering it’s a flagship phone we’re talking about.
