If the alleged Xperia Z3 goes head on with HTC One M8 smartphone, it surpasses by at least 3645 points based on the scores from BGR. HTC One M8 scores 33524 on AnTuTu while 33632 on AnTuTu X benchmark which are both lower than the 37169 of Xperia Z3.

Sony Xperia Z3 is expected to be announced sometime in August and September in UK with possible pricing of at least £600 per unit.
