Sony has announced the Xperia XZ3. It is the first Xperia smartphone with OLED screen. The 6 “panel has a resolution of 2880×1440 pixels and a ratio of 18: 9. The phone also has pressure sensors.

Sony is not the first manufacturer with pressure sensors on the side. HTC was the first with the U11 smartphone last year and also the Pixel 2 phones from Google have such sensors. These are sensors on the inside of the housing that detect minute changes. This allows the phone to check whether users are holding the phone and pressing it.

Sony calls the Side Sense function and uses it for multiple applications. This allows users to start the camera by picking up the phone and rotating it horizontally. Double tap on the side gives users a menu with last-used apps. Side Sense also needs to make it possible to zoom in when using the phone with one hand. The device is 158x73x9,9mm and weighs 193 grams.

The Xperia XZ3 is also the first phone that has been announced with Android 9.0 Pie. Other new smartphones so far run on Android 8.0 or 8.1, even since Google released Android Pie more than three weeks ago. The smartphone has a single 19-megapixel camera on the back and a single 13-megapixel camera on the front with LED flash. The front camera has a 1 / 3.06 “large sensor / supports the rear camera, just like the one in the XZ2, including the recording of slow motion video at 960fps and 3D scanning for 3D printing . The camera has a 1 / 2.3 “sensor with 1.22 micron pixels. The lens has an aperture of f / 2.0.

The phone has a 3330mAh battery and supports wireless charging. The device runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. Sony provides the XZ3 with 4GB memory and 64GB with ufs storage. The phone will be released in the Benelux in early October for a suggested retail price of 799 euros. Sony has not announced any other models. As a result, the XZ2 Compact of this spring remains the latest Compact version, while the newly released XZ2 Premium remains the most recent 4k model.
