The Xperia XZ3 is tipped to sport a 5.7-inches display with 18:9 aspect ratio, and a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels. It is likely to come with Corning Gorillas Glass 5/6 protection. The flagship device is said to be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor along with Adreno 540 GPU along with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage (expandable up to 400GB).

In terms of optics, the Sony Xperia XZ3 is tipped to a 48MP camera on the back. The Sony IMX 586 is the largest resolution camera sensor to be packed in a smartphone. It will allow users to capture high-quality images with a lot of details. The low-light performance is expected to receive a huge boost. Previously, the Huawei P20 Pro came with a 40MP sensor. The Lumia 1020 also featured a 41MP camera.

The upcoming Xperia smartphone is expected to run Android Oreo operating system out of the box. The 3240mAh battery is tipped to come with Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0 fast charging support and wireless charging.


Sony IMX586 Camera Sensor

The new Sony IMX586 sensor brings 48MP to future smartphones. Sony claims that the increased pixel count allows you to capture high-quality photos even when the devices are using digital zoom. The greater photo resolution also brings better photo clarity. Users will be able to zoom in on photos with less of a quality drop. This, in turn, makes the digital zoom a more viable option. Other features include 4K video recording capability at 90fps and support for full frame recording at 30fps.

The new sensor uses the Quad Bayer 2×2 pixel array. The 48 megapixels on the latest CMOS image sensor are only 0.8 μm in size, stacked onto a 1/2-type unit. For low-light situations or shooting at night, it can bin four pixels together to produce the equivalent of a 12MP sensor with large 1.6 μm pixels. This produces bright low-noise photos and videos. During the well-lit situations, the grid returns to its usual signal processing and offers 48MP photos in real time.



Since Sony is yet to confirm any details about the upcoming smartphone, the above-mentioned details must be taken with a pinch of salt. What do you think about the huge 48MP camera sensor? Will you purchase the upcoming Sony smartphone? Let us know in the comments section below.
