Sony revealed just its latest flagship offer at IFA 2018, Xperia XZ3 and while we expect many things from it, the phone's specifications on the phone suggest that it's not really that much of an upgrade from last year's XZ2.
There are a few changes though, and the most remarkable of them all is the screen. The Xperia XZ3 offers a larger 6-inch (up to 5.7-inch) OLED display with a QHD + resolution (2880 x 1440) and an 18: 9 ratio. The battery has also been bumped, from 3.180 mAh to 3.330 mAh on XZ3, and the phone also comes with Android Pie out of the box.
Inside, we have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. I'm not quite sure why Sony is still stuck on offering just 4GB of RAM when even budget smartphones offer more this day, but unfortunately it's what you're stuck with. But the storage is fortunately expandable, up to 512 GB.
Sony has also tweaked the front camera on the XZ3, which is now a 13 MP f / 1.9 sensor that has a few sleek tricks on the sleeves of 3D face scanning. All this for a price of $ 900 sounds pretty good to pay, but considering that Sony still looks like a Samsung competitor, it tries to match the power of Galaxy Note 9 although it  To bring things to a better perspective, we also introduce Huawei P20 Pro which still offers great cameras and also cheaper, but equally LG G7 + ThinQ

When it comes to performance, all four phones pack the latest and best hardware – while Xperia XZ3 and G7 + ThinQ will be eligible for Snapdragon 845, runs the P20 Pro Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 970 chipset, and note 9 runs the Samsung-made Exynos 9810 SoC.
While you can not go wrong with any of the offers, P20 Pro goes out here, given that it's hardware from last year. At the same time, the Exynos chip runs at the neck and neck of the Snapdragon 845 in most scenarios, but is a bit behind when it comes to games.
However, the Xperia XZ3 has the least RAM, which is likely to limit your ability to juggle between programs and games.
On paper, the Xperia XZ3 is the only phone in the mix with a single lens camera module. Note 9 has two with one that has a variable aperture. The Huawei P20 Pro has as many as three lenses on the back.
Although the number of lenses in no way determines the quality of the pictures, the Pixel 2 camera's single camera is still amazing – it goes on to two shows that manufacturers try a lot on the hardware front to make the setup more convincing for users.
On the video front, XZ3 and Note 9 are the only smartphones that can shoot 960 fps slow motion video, even though Xperia manages to do it at FHD resolution while Not 9 is capable of only 720p recording. Galaxy Note 9 hits right back with stabilized 4K images at 60 fps, which only a handful of smartphones can.
Samsung and Sony make the best TV screens in the world, and possibly in extension, they end up making some of the best smartphone displays as well.
In this mix, G7 + ThinQ packs in an LCD while the rest uses AMOLED panels. AMOLED is great for deep black and fancy features as always on monitors, and Samsung makes the best AMOLEDs.
Hopefully, the Sony AMOLED is just as good and that's something to keep an eye on.
The G7 ThinQ uses a very nice IPS LCD, and given LG's inability to produce a good OLED panel (the horrible Pixel 2 XL screen is going to think), this is great. After all, LG makes the amazing, colorful LCDs on Apple's iPhones.
All monitors are incredibly sharp and pack in pixel densities far higher than the iPhone's.
With regard to battery life, Xperia again tends to lose to Not 9 and P20 Pro, which packs into 4000 mAh devices. However, you get QuickCharge 3.0 support, which will ensure you get enough juice in about an hour's cost.
The software experience on all four phones is different. While none of them are running Android, Xperia XZ3 comes closest to comparison, perhaps why Sony could announce the phone with Android P. Galaxy Note 9 and the Huawei P20 Pro run heavily shine versions of Android Oreo, while G7 + ThinQ also runs a custom skin layer by LG.
Xperia XZ3 is not yet announced in India and goes to the $ 900 price tag that comes with the US, it will certainly not be cheap in India. We hope it will be priced at around Rs 60,000 that sets it right next to Note 9 and also the cheaper Galaxy S9. And even then it remains to see if the device can be competitive.
