Smile Z3X - Z Ultra successor shows up.

Looks like the Z3X is now real. Just showed up in the benchmark database with 6.2 inch 2K screen, 810 processor, 4GB RAM etc etc.

Default ;)

If this is legit, then God exists. You made my day. Thanks. But 7.9mm thickness could be shaved off a little.

I understand but maybe a slim variant without curved sensors may be done. 6.2" with 7.9 sounds massive.

I can't wait until 2015 that this phablet goes out ! I have the Xperia Z2, and i must say that i would love to have the same phone, but with a bigger screen, like Z Ultra...

I used to have the Z ultra last year in september, i was in love with this phone, except for the flash who's missing an the poor quality of the camera and the external speaker... but for everything else it's a great great phone, specially the screen ! I'm hesitating to buy it again, but as the IFA is coming in 2-3 weeks, i'm telling myself that is maybe better to wait as i was (pretty) sure that Sony will present the "Z Ultra 2"... But with this Z3X... i'm not sure anymore...

What do you think guys ?

I think the successor to the Ultra will be the rumored "Z3 Tablet Compact" - i.e. a device marketed as a tablet rather than smartphone. I am sure Sony will have more success that way.

The Z3X seems to be more of a camera centric device rather than a direct Ultra successor. Because of this, I consider the Z3 Tablet Compact to be the replacement and it would work, especially with a 7 inch screen. I don't think they will make an 8 incher considering that it would be close to the Z2 Tablet.

I would not like to go for a smaller screen on the next device and the camera part is covered through a QX10 - I would most probably opt for the tablet instead. I would be quite sure that it will have full phone functionality even if they push for the pure tablet related aspects in their marketing communication.
