With the official unveil less than a month away at the IFA, Sony's Xperia Z3 has been certified by China's TENAA, the country's equivalent of the FCC. The certification authority listed two models of the device, L55t and L55u — with different network bands.
Judging by the certification, it looks like Sony hasn't altered the internal hardware on the Xperia Z3 all that much from the Xperia Z2, as the upcoming handset also features a 5.2-inch full-HD display, 3 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory, 20.7 MP camera at the back and a 2.2 MP front shooter. What has changed is the Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8974AC SoC, which comes with a 2.5 GHz quad-core CPU and an Adreno 330 GPU. The Xperia Z3 variant with the L55t codename features TD-SCDMA and TD-LTE network connectivity while the L55u comes with WCDMA and TD-LTE connectivity.
Boasting dimensions of 146.5 x 72.5 x 7.35 mm, it does look like the Xperia Z3 will be thinner than the Xperia Z2, which comes in at 146.8 x 73.3 x 8.2 mm. The overall weight has also been reduced to 158.4g. While the water and dust resistant functionality wasn't detailed in the listing, it is evident from earlier leaks of the device that the Xperia Z3 will feature a similar form of protection against the elements as its predecessor.
