Nonetheless, the smartphone is now making headlines once again since it has been spotted on GeekBench where its full specs sheet was revealed.

With the Xperia XZ3, Sony is also introducing the new Side Sense feature that works similar to Edge Sense on HTC and Pixel devices.

Inside the Xperia XZ3 has not undergone significant changes.

Sony Xperia XZ3 got extended 6-inch display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and a resolution of 2880 x 1440 pixels. The 2,880 x 1,440 display was developed with the help of Sony's Bravia TV engineers.

An IP65/68 rating means the XZ3 is certified water resistant and it is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip. The display also gets Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

The 19 megapixel camera is capable of recording 4K HDR videos and 960 frames per second slow motion. Battery capacity has increased to 3 330 mAh.

Sony has worked to reduce the size of the Xperia XZ3's bezels. The phone weighs 193 gms and is 9.9 mm thick.

Telling stats behind United's humiliating defeat to Spurs
Yes, the first-half display was full of objective , energy and intensity in a way that the 3-2 loss to Brighton had not been. Luke Shaw has apologised to the Manchester United fans after Monday's 3-0 defeat to Tottenham at Old Trafford .

The Xperia XZ3 also brings back Sony's well-regarded front-facing X-Force speakers and the Dyanmic Vibration feature that the company first debuted in the previous XZ2 model. It will likely be sporting a combination of glass and metal at the front and back.

The curved 3D glass in front and back blends seamlessly into the device body to create a sleek and elegant borderless design, generating lovely reflections and ambient colours from all angles. The camera also includes 3D scan functionality. A Type-C USB port sits on the bottom of the phone, while a 3.5mm headphone jack is not included here.

It will be available in the United Kingdom from September (exact date TBC) for £699 SIM-free in black, red, green and white. The company has also improved its camera interface, to make it cleaner, easier to use.

The Sony Xperia XZ3 will be available in selected markets globally from end of September 2018 and will be among the first devices to ship with the latest Android 9 Pie. All three devices support Quick Charge 3.0, Qi wireless charging and they all have various software features such as Smart Stamina and Stamina Mode for prolonged battery life.

Aside from the pretty OLED screen, 13MP selfie cam and thumb-activated app menu, this is the same phone as the XZ2. Some of you were probably expecting Android Oreo to come pre-installed on the device, but that will not be the case.

If you can't keep up with Sony's releases, you're not alone.
