The Sony Xperia Z2 was launched in February at the MWC event in Barcelona. And a source on Twitter is now claiming that the manufacturer is looking to launch the successor in approximately three months from now. It is said that Sony will launch the smartphone at this year’s IFA 2014 event held in September, much like the Xperia Z1 broke cover last year.
There’s no word on the hardware of the smartphone, but it is believed to be packing an ultra slim 7mm body like the freshly announced Xperia T3. It is further believed that the device will not feature the Snapdragon 805 chipset so we’re guessing Sony will stick to Snapdragon 801 which is currently seen on several flagships.
The same source has also confirmed that there will be no successor to the Xperia Z Ultra phablet, contrary to recent rumors. This is a logical move by the company given that the Z Ultra wasn’t as successful as they had hoped.
Given the timing of the launch, we expect the Xperia Z3 to feature a QHD display much like the LG G3. But it will have to contend with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 which breaks cover in September as well.
