If this 22MP Sony Xperia Z3X is real, we’ll eat our smartphones

Sony's leaked phablet has a dream spec sheet, but is it too good to be true?

Renders of a Sony Xperia Z Ultra successor have leaked online, and it’s a spec fiend’s dream. Assuming it’s real, that is.

The Xperia Z3X, as it will reportedly be called, has a gigantic 22MP sensor on its rear, at least according to the source on Chinese site digi-wo.

Other specs include a 6.14in display (smaller than the Z Ultra’s 6.5in screen), along with a 2560 x 1152 resolution, which is a little shy of the LG G3‘s 2560 x 1600 display.

The Xperia Z3X is also said to be powered by Qualcomm’s 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor, which will rest beneath the Z3X’s 7.9mm-thin shell. Considering that Snapdragon 805 chips have yet to make their way into mainstream phones, we’re more than a little skeptical however.

And our skepticism isn’t helped by the huge, outlandish camera accessories either, which appear to include a full-size external flash that wouldn’t look out of place hugging a DSLR.

It wouldn’t be the first time Sony’s thrown an imaging surprise our way (remember the wireless QX10 lens?) – but we still think that this is a little too far fetched.

Still, the renders and specs are out there, and while we’re swallowing it all with near-lethal levels of salt, we can only wait and see. Stay tuned.
