Sony has officially unveiled the Xperia Z3+, but it’s not a phablet as the name might imply. Instead, it’s the same handset that was released in Japan under the Xperia Z4 name.
The Sony Xperia Z3+ features the same 5.2-inch full HD display as the Xperia Z3. Internally, it has a Snapdragon 810 chip, backed up by 3GB RAM. The Xperia Z3+ also features a 20.7 megapixel rear-facing camera, while the front-facing camera is bumped up to 5 megapixels.
Sony has managed to refine the handset’s body a little more. The Xperia Z3+ is just 6.9mm thick compared to the 7.3mm Z3, while weight has been reduced from 152g to 144g.
As you’d expect, water and dust proofing remain. This time around, the USB socket is not covered, so you won’t have to mess around with flaps to charge or take the handset underwater.
Sony claims that the Xperia Z3+ will last for up to two days thanks to its 2900mAh power pack. There’s also a quick charging accessory that will apparently give you a day of use after just 45 minutes of charging.
The Sony Xperia Z3+ will be released globally in June. It will be available in black, white, copper, and ice green.
