The volume, power and shutter buttons as well as the fingerprint scanner are always stored on the right side of the phone. However, the card slot has moved to the left instead of the tray mounted on the top of the Xperia 3 In particular, the LED has been moved to the upper left corner of the device, such as the camera module, color detection (RGBC-IR sensor), and the previous Xperia phone. Top orpis / speakers, front camera, notification LED and various sensors have been placed in the top bezel. The lower end has the main microphone and the USB-C port firing speakers at the bottom.
