Meet the all-new Xperia XZ3 – the latest, beautiful addition to the Xperia flagship family. Packed with Sony’s cutting-edge audio and visual technologies, the XZ3 allows you to see, hear and feel your music, movies and games in the highest quality. All in a stunning, standout design.
The XZ3 allows you to enjoy content, just as the creators intended, for a truly immersive experience in the palm of your hand.
Let’s break down the new features on the XZ3 to show just how special this device is.
See more, hear more, feel more
The XZ3 is the first device in the Xperia family to feature an OLED display. Powered by Sony’s award-winning BRAVIA® TV technologies, the 6-inch QHD+ HDR OLED display is capable of delivering deeper blacks, higher contrast and sharper clarity.
Paired with Sony’s X-reality technology which up-converts content to near High Dynamic Range (HDR), you can enjoy all your favourite movies and content in the highest possible quality, even when streaming videos via YouTube and Netflix for example.
You can find out more about OLED technology in our explainer: What is OLED?
The content immersion continues with Sony’s legacy of audio expertise. We have upgraded our S-Force Front Surround speakers to be 20% louder than before, and with DSEE HX technology which up-scales compressed music to near Hi-Res Audio quality, you can be sure to hear songs exactly as the artist intended.
Add to that, LDAC audio technology from Sony that allows you to enjoy high quality wireless audio via Bluetooth, for a truly amazing audio experience.
But with Xperia XZ3 you don’t just see more and hear more, you feel more too.
Whether you’re watching films or playing games on your device, our Dynamic Vibration System (DVS) analyses audio data and lets you feel the action in your hand. DVS adds an extra dimension to your viewing experience, vibrating in sync with what’s happening on screen, ensuring you feel part of the action.
Borderless beauty with an intuitive interface
When you pick up the XZ3, you’ll notice the gorgeous curved 3D glass on the front and back, which blends seamlessly into the body. The sleek shape ensures it sits comfortably in your hand while still boasting an extended 18:9 screen. Not only is it the perfect hand fit, but the slim 3mm aluminium frame and Corning Gorilla® Glass® 5 ensures it’s as durable as it is beautiful.
It is truly glorious to look at and comes in a choice of four beautiful colours to match your own style: Black, White Silver, Forest Green and Bordeaux Red. You can find out more about the inspiration behind the design in our latest Meet the Makers, including how the colours were chosen and the consumer feedback that influenced the final outcome. A range of accessory covers, Style Cover Touch and Style Cover Stand, are also available in matching colours stylishly protecting your XZ3.
The design innovation doesn’t stop there either, with a whole new intelligent feature for the XZ3 in the form of Side sense. We have incorporated Artificial Intelligence (AI) to provide convenient access to your favourite apps in an intuitive new way. By double-tapping anywhere on either side of your device, it will predict your next move based on learnings from frequency, time and location habits, displaying the apps you want to use the moment you want to use them.
An even smarter camera, thanks to some pretty nifty AI
The Sony-quality camera experience you know and love has just become even more intelligent, thanks to AI in Xperia.
Featuring a 19MP Motion Eye main camera with Smart launch, your XZ3 will instantly open your camera when you hold your phone in landscape mode, ensuring you never miss a moment.
XZ3 also allows you to capture reality in extraordinary detail with 4K HDR Movie recording, as well as dramatic clips in Full HD 960fps Super slow motion thanks to the Xperia’s advanced Motion Eye camera. And that’s just on one side of your device!
Complementing this is a best-in-class 13MP front camera with beauty and bokeh effects for capturing stunning portrait selfies.
Under the hood
The XZ3 can comfortably run these powerful features all day thanks to the cutting-edge Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform, offering the world’s fastest maximum download speed of 1.2Gbps. And the integrated battery features such as Smart Stamina, STAMINA mode, Battery Care and Qnovo Adaptive Charging technology ensure your immersive experience keeps you going for longer.
Xperia XZ3 is available in selected markets globally from October 5th 2018 and is among the first devices to ship with the latest Android 9 Pie.
XZ3 is water resistant and protected against dust, so don’t worry if you get caught in the rain or want to wash off dirt under a tap water, but remember all ports and attached covers should be firmly closed. You should not put the device completely underwater; or expose it to seawater, salt water, chlorinated water or liquids such as drinks. Abuse and improper use of device will invalidate warranty. The device has been tested under Ingress Protection rating IP65/68. For more info, see sonymobile.com/waterresistant. Note the XZ3 has a capless USB port to connect and charge.
