Here we have the official launch of the Sony Xperia Z4 in Japan, as predicted would happen. Unlike the big-budget launch of the Samsung Galaxy S6 though, Sony’s announcement is decidedly low-key. Read into that what you will. We have the specifications of the Xperia Z4 after the break.

The Sony Xperia Z4 carries most of the hardware that we would expect to see in a flagship smartphone at this time. Although, like HTC did with its One M9, Sony has also decided to stay with a Full HD display instead of upping the resolution to Quad HD like LG and Samsung have. It’s a subjective topic, some will appreciate that the Full HD display will be more energy-efficient while others will long for a higher resolution.

As you can see from the pictures, the Xperia Z4 sports Sony’s Omnibalance design language, and so is very similar in appearance to its predecessor, the Z3. It’s available in the following colours: White, Black, Copper and Aqua Green.

Specifications:

  • 5.2-Inch Triliminos Display with 1920 x 1080 resolution (Full HD)
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 Octa-Core processor 4 x cores @2.0GHz + 4 x cores @ 1.5GHz (64-bit)
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32GB Internal storage
  • 20.7MP Rear-camera, Exmor RS for mobile, Flash
  • 5.1MP Front-facing camera with wide angle lens
  • MicroSD card support (up to 128GB)
  • Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, WiFi
  • Dimensions: 146 x 72 x 6.9mm
  • Weight: 144 grams
  • Battery: 2,930mAh
  • Waterproof/Dustproof: XPX5/8, IP6X
  • Cap-less MicroUSB port

What do you think of the new Xperia Z4? Is it too similar to its predecessor? The main differences are a newer processor, smaller dimensions, a cap-less MicroUSB port and a slightly smaller battery. Has Sony done enough or have they simply thrown in the towel? Let us know in the comments below.

    No need to upgrade with little change in specs.

    Looking at the specs, its almost identical to the M9.

    They should have went with the SD808 or wait for the SD815 as the SD810 has a bad reputation but it seems those issues can be mitigated somewhat.
