screenrant.com Sony's Making Its Own iPhone SE 3, And It Just Leaked In Full

Sony is reportedly developing a compact smartphone to rival the iPhone SE (2022). Display sizes on modern smartphones have been getting larger with every year, but compact handsets still have a niche. The iPhone SE series remains one of the most popular offerings in its segment, and Sony will be hoping that its upcoming compact smartphone will be able to offer a similar experience on the Android side of things.

The smartphone market has undergone a dramatic change since the start of the smartphone revolution more than a decade ago. With new brands like OnePlus and Xiaomi jostling for attention, old guards, like HTC, BlackBerry, LG, and Nokia have either had to shut shop or are taking the backseat in what has become a highly-competitive industry. Sony has also gone through turbulent times with its smartphone business, so catering to small niches in the Android market might be a way for the company to stay relevant.

Sony Xperia Ace 3: Specs, Price, And Release Date

Starting with the display size, the Xperia Ace 3 will reportedly measure 139.7 x 68.6 x 9.1mm and will feature a 5.5-inch display. There is, however, no word on whether it will be an AMOLED or LCD panel. On the imaging side of things, the phone will reportedly rock a single 13-megapixel camera on the back, with no indications on what the front-facing shooter will be. It is also said to have a 3.5mm headphone socket at the top and a fingerprint scanner integrated with the power button on the right side.

The report further claims that the device will support 5G connectivity, and is slated to be released in June this year at a price of Rs. 24,999 (around $325) in India. This would make it significantly more expensive than the Xperia Ace 2, which carried a price-tag of 22,000 yen (around $190). There's no further information on the rumoredSony phone, including what the all-important processor will be, but there will likely be more leaks about it in the coming weeks and months.
