The Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset is well known for its overheating issues. This has been observed on the HTC One M9 as well as the recently launched Sony Xperia Z3+. While HTC has been relatively quiet about its flagship, Sony gave out an explanation recently where it mildly acknowledged the issues.
But this hasn’t changed the company’s mind, as the Xperia Z3+ has now started shipping out globally to the customers. The smartphone is a slightly upgraded variant of the Xperia Z3 with only the CPU different on board. This means users will still find the 5.2 inch 1080p display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage (expandable), a 20.7-megapixel camera on the back, a 5.1-megapixel front camera, Android 5.0.2 Lollipop and a 2,930 mAh battery.
The only solace for potential buyers of the smartphone is that the company is expected to issue an update soon, which will seemingly fix the thermal issues on the device. But since the company has failed to provide clarity on the timeframe, we don’t know when to expect it.
