Sony’s latest flagship smartphone Xperia Z4, launched last month in Japan, quietly went global as Xperia Z3 Plus this week.
Like HTC, Sony has stuck with most of its old specifications for its new smartphone. The Xperia Z3 Plus is simply a revamped version of the previous Z3, with only a single, granted major, external upgrade.
Coined the evolution to the Z3 family by Sony, Xperia Z3 Plus has a waterproof flapless microUSB port unlike the previous one which required a flap to protect it from water ingress.
