Sony's Xperia Z3 smartphone flagship will launch at IFA next week, there have been enough monumental leaks surrounding the device to know that. However, Sony has managed to just about keep the other devices it will roll out in Berlin under wraps, with only the odd scrap of information escaping. The Japanese company has today released its own teaser for IFA that shows three new devices will be launched.The company rolled out a video today that ends with the still image you can see above, clearly showing two new smartphones and a tablet. The larger of the two handsets is the Xperia Z3, Sony's new flagship that we already know so much about, including its looks and specs. The Z3 will get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset with 3GB of RAM, a 5.2-inch Full HD 1080p screen, a 20.7 megapixel rear camera, and 16GB of expandable storage. The smaller smartphone is probably the rumoured Xperia Z3 Compact, the mini version of the flagship handset. Unlike other mini phones though, the Z3 Compact will follow the Z1 version and will rock flagship baiting specs. They include 4.5-inch 720x1280 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 clocked at 2.5GHz (the same chip as the Z3 proper) with 2GB of RAM, the same 20.7 megapixel snapper found on the big Xperia Z3, and a 2.1 megapixel front facer. The third product is quite clearly a table and is likely to be Sony's first small form factor slate. Reported to be called the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, this will be a smaller version of Sony's flagship slate, but will retain its innards just like the smartphone Compacts. All of the devices will also come with IP68 waterproofing, like all Sony flagships these days. There are also rumours that Sony has a couple more devices lined up for IFA, including a 10-inch Xperia Z3 Tablet and a new SmartWatch. source: NDTV
