Sony Unveils Xperia Z4 in Japan


Sony has just unveiled the Xperia Z4 in Japan. The phone looks very similar to the company’s 2014 flagship, the Xperia Z3. We recently brought you some leaks detailing the minor physical changes between the Z3 and upcoming Z4, it appears many of those leaks were accurate. The specifications on the Z4 include a 5.2-inch screen, metal frame, support for Hi-Resolution audio and wide-angle 25mm lens on the back camera. The frame is now thinner (at 6.9mm) and lighter, while the front camera now has the same wide-angle lens of the primary shooter and digital image stabilization to help you take better looking selfies. There is also a new timer feature in the camera options to help take group shots. The phone features 3 GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 810 processor inside. The display resolution is still 1920×1080. A 2930mAh battery should give good battery life and you can expand the 32 GB of onboard storage with up to a 128 GB micro SD card. The Z4 is IP6 certified for dust and IP5 and IP8 certified for water

The Xperia Z4 will launch in Japan first, during the summer. There is no word on if or when this exact phone will make its way stateside, but it seems likely Sony will announce the same or similar phone for the western market soon. Sony has been known to release their phones significantly later in the US, so we won’t hold out too much hope for widespread availability just yet. The phone will be offered in 4 metal shades, including a new copper and aqua green option. Sony also announced a new case that looks very similar to the S-view case Samsung offers for their phones. Stay tuned to HOA for more news on the Xperia Z4 as it comes in.

I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
