Sony’s IFA press event may still be about a day away, that doesn’t mean we can’t feast our eyes on some new stuff that they’ll likely be showing off at the event tomorrow. Thought to be there are a few highly anticipated devices from the Japanese company, like the new Xperia Z3, Z3 compact, Tablet Z3 compact and the new smartwatch 3 as well as a new smartband. There have already been a number of leaks of both the new Xperia Z3 and the Z3 compact(we saw some Z3 compact images leak out just yesterday)and today we seem to have stumbled upon some new leaks of both the Sony Xperia Z3 and the new smartband which they should be unveiling tomorrow.
The Smartband is what we’ll talk about first here as it’s probably the least obvious due to its small size compared to the giant Z3 right next to it, although it still easy to see. The smartband is black, and it seems to have a curved e-ink display on it which appears to be showing off the time as well as a possible step counter depicted by the image of a person walking. Sony’s last smartband had no display at all so this is quite an interesting change, perhaps they want an easier way for their users to interact with it, or at least see relative stats without having to pull out there phone that it’s connected to.
The other part of the image which is impossible to ignore, is the copper colored Xperia Z3 being used by the model that’s wearing the smartband. On the one side we can see the same pogo pin connectors that we pointed out on yesterday’s image leaks of the Z3 compact, likely meant for use with a charging dock. In all honesty there really isn’t anything new here to learn as we’ve seen leaked images that pointed out specific details like the camera and the phones open ports, design etc. before. The point of this image is just to advertise the Z3 in a copper color being made available and perhaps to tease the smartband before the event tomorrow. The phone looks rather nice, even it only has a few minor tweaks to the design, most notably the slightly more rounded edges of the device frame.
