The new wireless charger is quite different from the one that shipped with its predecessor
Sony will be launching the Xperia XZ3 after two months, but details about the smartphone are still scarce. Now the Japanese manufacturer is developing a new wireless charger which was passed through the Wireless Power Consortium overseas wireless charging certification body, and there is a great chance that it will be launched along with the Xperia XZ3.
The wireless charger will be implemented as part of the existing Qi standard and has adopted the Qi Specification Version 1.2.4 which has the potential for transmitters to deliver 15 Watt power and also for receivers to receive the same amount.
It bears type number CP-WP1 and has an illustration of how the final product may look. There are two circular rings of which the inner one looks a bit taller. The lower part is painted in blue indicating that the LED lights up during charging. This is just an illustration, and the final product may look different.
The design is quite different from the box type wireless charger (WCH20) that was shipped with the Xperia XZ2 series. However, the new wireless charger should also work well with not only the XZ3 but with the recently launched XZ2 Premium as well.
As for the smartphone, Xperia XZ3 will feature a display with FHD (2160 x 1080 pixels) resolution and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset. It is expected to be coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. The device will run Android 8.0 Oreo and is said to have dual cameras on both the front and the rear which means it will have four cameras. It mentions a drop to 16 MP + 12 MP configuration in the back. Another report contradicts that the smartphone will sport just a 13 MP front camera.
The Xperia XZ3 is expected to be unveiled at IFA 2018 which will take place from 31 August to 5 September. We expect Sony to release an official teaser soon.
