Renders of Sony’s Android rival for iPhone SE revealed
Recently, renderings of Sony‘s Android rival for the Apple iPhone SE have been made available.
If the recently unveiled Apple iPhone SE 2022 made you think of a compact Android phone, it’s interesting to know that Sony is probably building a small Android phone called the Xperia Ace 3.
According to Von Arena, the renderings of Sony Xperia Ace 3 have been released by the famous whistleblower Onleaks.
This device will probably replace the Xperia Ace 2; The product was launched in 2021 in the Japanese market.
The new generation of this phone will still benefit from the design of the front body similar to the Ace 2.
Renders released from Sony Ace 3 show that the selfie camera of this device will be embedded in the drop-shaped cut, and we also see relatively large margins around the screen.
The iPhone SE 3 is still introduced with the old design, and there are some noticeable margins around the display, but the large bottom edge of this product hosts the Touch ID sensor. It remains to be seen Sony‘s reason for the large bottom edge of the Xperia Ace 3 display, as the device’s fingerprint sensor appears to be on the right edge.
The Xperia Ace 3 has the same dimensions as its predecessor. For comparison, the dimensions of the Sony Ace 3 are 139.7 by 9.1 by 68.6 mm, while the dimensions of the Ace 2 are 140 by 8.9 by 69 mm.
The Xperia Ace 3 will also feature a 5.5-inch display, with the back only hosting a 13-megapixel main camera, and this time it looks like this is not a dual-megapixel depth-sensing camera.
Every once in a while, Sony unveils a new Xperia Ace, a collection of unique Japanese small handsets whose original version was released in 2019. Then came the Ace II smartphone in 2021, and now a third version of the series is on its way.
This phone has a 5.5-inch screen and dimensions of 139.7 by 68.7 by 9.1 mm. For comparison, the Xperia 10 III (with a 6.0-inch display and different aspect ratios) measures 154 x 68 x 8.3 mm, while the iPhone 13 Mini 131.5 x 64.2 x 7.7 mm;
So this Sony phone is not the smallest phone available, but it is smaller than most Android phones on the market.
There’s also a 3.5mm headphone jack on the top of the phone. The SIM card slots are on the left, and we would not be surprised if a microSD card slot is included, as previous Ace models had expandable storage space.
Possible specifications of Sony’s new compact smartphone
The new Sony Xperia ACE 3 should include the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chip among its technical specifications.
This is a hypothesis that casts doubt on the fact that the previous version, ACE 2, used the MediaTek Helio P35.
This SoC update includes a real qualitative leap in terms of performance and performance for the new compact.
There should be a 5.5-inch screen and a 4500 mAh battery to complete the datasheet. Also, the possible presence of 6 GB of RAM as well as 128/256 GB of internal memory is significant.
We will have to wait for the next few weeks to further confirm the technical specifications of the smartphone.
The first European of this smartphone should be evaluated. This project can be an exclusive project for some Asian markets and especially for Japan.
More updates, of course, will be coming soon. Sony has no plans to phase out the Android smartphone segment and is preparing several new features for the coming months. We will see which of these new products enters the global market.
Will this model inherit the dual camera of previous generations?
Since other new models of Sony phones are equipped with dual cameras, it is expected that the company will continue to use dual cameras in its production devices in the future.
The Xperia ace 2 is equipped with a so-called depth camera, which is a camera that measures depth. What kind of camera is equipped with a depth camera? With this camera, it is possible to photograph blur.
What does the ability to blur mean? As mentioned, this is the so-called portrait photography capability. Portrait mode means you can blur the background when taking a photo of a person.
The Xperia ace 2 is currently equipped with a 13 million pixel camera. So it is very likely that the number of pixels in the future will exceed 13 million pixels.
If the number of pixels increases, the base potential of the phone’s camera also increases.
It’s better to have multiple cameras on the Xperia Ace 3
Dual cameras are becoming commonplace in the world of smartphones, and there are many models with better camera performance than dual cameras.
Having multiple cameras means that this model has great potential. These days it seems we have reached for the triple camera instead of the dual camera.
A triple camera is a model with three cameras in which each of the three cameras has a different role.
It seems that using a new generation smartphone, I can take very beautiful photos alone. Having multiple cameras, not just blurry performance, means there are significant benefits to it.
Release time of Xperia Ace 3
No details on the price and release date of the Xperia Ace 3 have been released yet, But the publisher of these renderings has announced that the device will be available in June with a base price of $ 327.
This means that the price of Ace 3 will be higher than the previous generation of this product. For comparison, the Xperia Ace 2 was introduced for $ 190.
It is said that Sony Xperia Ace 3, as the current generation of this product, will use a 4500 mAh battery.
In addition, it is predicted that this phone will be equipped with the Snapdragon 888 chip, but since this device is a low-cost product, the possibility of using this chip in it is very low.
The Xperia Ace 3 will most likely come with a mid-range processor. Sony used the MediaTek Helio P35 chip in the Ace 2. It remains to be seen whether the Ace 3 will be available in markets other than Japan.
