The handset sports a 5-7-inch Full HD+ display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. Thereby sporting an 18:9 aspect ratio much like the Xperia XZ2.

The Xperia XZ3 comes fitted with a 3250mAh battery that comes with support for Quick Charge 3.0 which is Sony’s name for its fast charging feature.

There will be a 19MP primary camera alongside a 12MP secondary camera sporting an aperture value of f/1.6. As far as the front-facing camera goes, it will come with a 13MP shooter with a f/2.0 aperture.
