After taking a closer look to any of the revealed photos, we must admit that we are a little disappointed. All previous rumors have mentioned a completely new design, but to be honest, there are no impressive changes to be noticed. Sony’s classic aesthetics that we are used too is here, just as always, but this is a prototype unit, so maybe the final Xperia Z3 will be a little different.
As for those of you still having a few doubts that this model that we have here is indeed Xperia Z3, we can only tell you that Sony Xperia Z2 is labeled as the L50t, while the Chinese version revealed by Vodafone Germany has the model number L55t, which makes perfect sense.
