Sony XPERIA Z3 reportedly to make its debut in September

According to @DooMLoRD_XDA, the Sony XPERIA Z3, follow-up to the Z2, will make its debut in September. He also says that the smartphone will be redesigned, be a mere 7mm slim (just like the newly unveiled XPERIA T3 pictured below), and will not sport Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor.


Since the Z3 reportedly will not sport a Snapdragon 805 CPU, it is speculated that the smartphone will have the Snapdragon 801 instead. However, since the Snapdragon 810 will be available at around the same time the Z3 is said to make its debut, it might just have this more powerful processor lying under the hood.

Of course, since these are all unconfirmed, take this information with a pinch of salt.
