New Sony D6603 Listed at the FCC; It might be Xperia Z3
Sony D6603 is a device that first appeared on our radar at the beginning of the year, before the official unveiling of the company’s Xperia Z2. The same handset is now said handset is now listed at the FCC under the IDs PM-0800 and PM-0801 model numbers which stand for Sony D6603 and D6616. We can tell your from the start that these versions seem to be identical when it comes to their hardware specs, so we can only imagine that they are versions of the same device, most probably Sony Xperia Z3, but for different markets and carriers.
What has this FCC listing revealed?
Are you curious to find out what has this FCC listing revealed? Sony D6603 aka Xperia Z3 will be able to support LTE connectivity on bands 2, 4, 5, 7, 13, and 17, not to mention that Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, and NFC will also be included.

Sony D6603 from Sketches and Rumors
If we take in consideration the sketches of this Sony device, we can imagine that it will be resistant to dust and liquids. And previous rumors have suggested that the new Sony D6603 smartphone might have similar specs to Xperia Z2: we are referring to a 1080p display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 (8974-AB) processor coupled with 16GB of internal memory, as well as a 20.7MP rear camera.
There were though some differences in the RAM department. We have heard speculations about both the 2GB and 3GB RAM options, but neither of these one is confirmed at this point. The 2GB RAM version is not what we want to hear, especially that the leaked Sony D6503 prototype came with 3GB RAM, but we’ll soon find out the truth.
As for what the D6603 looks like, it’s impossible to tell if the handset’s design is similar to that of the company’s Z2, so these rumors are probably random ones and they should not be taken in consideration yet.
