Sony Xperia 3 may have been spotted at Geekbench with S865 chipset, 12GB of RAM

09 December 2019
By the looks of it, Sony is preparing four variants of its 2020 flagship. The top-specced model should feature 5G connectivity.

Sort by:

Sony only pump hardver into their devices.. And gess what, price will be 900+ euros! Camera quallity will be lower than competition in price range lower screen quallity, device into around 160mm, what next? Mabey battery abouth 3.000mah, ugly old software UI, and UFS 2.1 storage...

Let's see...

Well i dont get it. Sony Xperia 1 is far better than Sony Xperia 5.
Sony Xperia 5 si far worse than Sony Xperia 1.
And the middle between 1 and 5 which is 3 is far better than Sony Xperia 1 and way more far better compared to Sony Xperia 5.

Good to see 12 GB of RAM will become the norm. While that happens, watch the next iPhones and Pixels still only have half that. I'm specifically looking at you, Google. Pixel 5 and 6 will probably still be stuck with 6.

Should be like that: xperia 0, xperia 1.1, xperia 3, xperia 5.1...

KebabSLO, 09 Dec 2019What overkill ? Sony never had good battery life, becase t... morehigher mah doesnt mean good battery life...
i am still enjoying a "good battery life" of z3 and z5 premium... those only have older versions of battery optimization...
i get about 1 to 2 days of normal use... up to these days... unlike some of its contemporaries having high mah but deteriorates the battery overtime...
since you are in gsmarena.com check out their battery endurance test on their comparison page, you dont need to be an xperia user to know facts like that...
here is a sample https://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=9543&idPhone2=9536&idPhone3=9840

Sony never had good battery life, becase t... moreHaving a 12h combined use (5h SOnT, 69h SOffT) while playing Ark survival evolved for more than 4 hours/day is far from a weak battery life imo. Prior my addiction to this game, I had a 23h combined use, only 3h less than my previous Huawei Mate 10 pro that cut all the background apps to death, with a 20% bigger battery.
It's not great, but as far as I see with workmates, that's still slightly better than your average samsung/iPhone that are used by most of the people here and on par with the recent one. Not a big deal when you need less than 30 minute to go from 20 to 80%.

Sony never had good battery life, becase t... moreXperia 1 with 4K OLED screen with around 3000mah Battery and has a higher average endurance rating than some recent Samsung Flagships with more battery capacity than Sony. Get this, 4K resolution flat and still lasts a bit longer than the 1080p/1440p counterparts.

Love the Community, 09 Dec 2019But 21:9 is a standard ratio just like 16:9. Many movies us... moreTbh, a chin/top-less phone would be rather tiring to have in hand, or to use for gaming. your thumbs rest at almost an inch from the side when you keep the phone in landscape mode to play a game. You need to change your way of handling the phone by opening the hands to access the side of the phone, and that can be tiring with long game session.
Also, not having to take care about your fingers in the way all the time when watching a video and having more freedom to change your handling is nice.
Well, for each their own, it would be cool to exist for people that want it, but I'm not sure I would change my xperia 1 for another without top/chin border, even for free. Would be more eye catchy, but probably a pain to play game and watch movies.

There's really no hope anymore in phones design nowadays. All of those so called designers need to be fired and just peel their eyes doing what Apple did. SMH.

i am not sure if that is necessary... even the xz2 premium is good enough for its purpose... camerawise and ramwise... those who wants sony to put a large ram may again be disappointed by this... but for xperia users, it is not really necessary.

Shui8, 09 Dec 2019Actually Xperia with the 21:9 are the best part of the phone.I'll only buy it if it's less than 150mm tall

Sony never had good battery life, becase they always put batteries with low capacity in the phones. They need to step up their game with battery life also.

chester, 09 Dec 2019Yes...we don't need phones that's look like a rulerActually Xperia with the 21:9 are the best part of the phone.

chester, 09 Dec 2019Yes...we don't need phones that's look like a ruler"We"? You mean the group of guys that think they are alone on earth and their tastes are universal? The worst thing for the consumer would be that all the manufacturers start to make the same things. We don't buy a phone for the brand, but for the features. Some do like 21/9 screen, it doesn't need to be universal to be real. If you don't like 21/9, why do you still bother coming here to read about Sony news? Looks like frustration here to me.
The funny part is that I'm pretty sure you never tried one of those 21/9 xperia.

chester, 09 Dec 2019Yes...we don't need phones that's look like a rulerBut 21:9 is a standard ratio just like 16:9. Many movies use 21:9 so it'll benefit this Sony Flagship.

Underscreen Cameras with Transparent OLEDs need to come sooner. It can almost be done with Optical Under-Display Fingerprint sensors. I said this so we can have a notchless, holeless, true Allscreen display with the chin being the same razor thin size as the top and side bezels.

And it would probably cost 1000€, no thanks.
I am waiting the day when Sony will release some good mid-range phone (nice design, above average performance and good price), not like the fails Xperia 10 or 10 plus.

It is the same dog with a different collar. Too many speculations and assumptions.
