We've already seen leaks detailing hardware and design of Sony's alleged upcoming flagship device, the Xperia Z3. A recent FCC certification of a Sony handset by model number D6603 lends further evidence that an Xperia Z3 launch is imminent.

The D6603 model number ties in with Sony's naming convention for the Xperia Z series — the Xperia Z1 was C6903, while the Xperia Z2 featured a model number D6503. The FCC filing divulged two model numbers, D6603, which is believed to be the standard version of the Xperia Z3, along with D6616, which may turn out to be a carrier variant, considering that both model numbers seemingly feature identical hardware.

The FCC filing also revealed that the device has LTE connectivity on 2, 4, 5, 7, 13, and 17 bands, along with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC and an IR blaster. While other specs aren't mentioned, the Xperia Z3 may feature a Snapdragon 801, 3 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory, 20.7 MP G Lens camera and a microSD card slot.

The recent spate of leaks surrounding the Xperia Z3 followed by Sony's commitment to a six month launch cycle means that we may see an official unveiling sometime in the month of September, possibly at the IFA in Berlin.
