Samsung might be getting ready to announce the Z3 at the Tizen Developer Summit which is scheduled to take place in India on July 30th and 31st. A new import listing shows that the handset has been imported to India last week for testing purposes.
The international variant of the Sony XPERIA Z4 is known as the Z3+ and now the device is available for purchase on American shores via Amazon.
Sony has apparently shipped four new smartphone prototypes into India for the purpose of testing and debugging. The shipment was brought into India last Friday from China into Bangalore.
If you thought that the Z4 and Z3+ names were confusing, then now things just got even more confusing thanks to the latest product announcement from Sony. The Z4v is essentially a Z3+/Z4 but that is built exclusively for Verizon and also has a QHD screen that sets it apart from the former two models.
Sony introduced the Xperia Z3 and the Z3 compact recently, at the IFA event in Berlin. The obvious upgrades to the Z2 and the Z1 compact featured a slightly newer design and subtle changes to the hardware. One of the clear USPs of the Z3 is, of course, the camera. Since the Z1, Sony’s hardware for the camera has almost been consistent, but a lot of changes in software have not only added features, but made the experience much better. Another great USP of the Z3 and other Xperia devices is the ability to protect itself from water and dust. Couple these two and you get something that other flagships are not capable of.
