Sony still hasn’t close down or sole a mobile division, as recently rumored, though a phone events are really removing reduction glamourous. On Monday, a association announced a new flagship smartphone, a Xperia Z4, though usually in Japan.
For comparison, Sony launched a final flagship, a Xperia Z3, during an eventuality during a IFA 2014 conference, hold in Sept. 2014 in Berlin. It’s probable that Sony skeleton a separate, tellurian launch for a Z4, though spilling a beans like this will really kill many of a expectation hum about this model.
The phone [link in Japanese] won’t make too many heads turn, either. It is a approach inheritor to a Z3 — with a same 5.2-inch, 1080p screen, 20.7-megapixel camera, and a really identical metallic/glass design. The biggest ascent is a front camera, that is now a 25mm, wide-angle, 5.1-megapixel one. The phone is also a small slimmer and lighter than a final indication — 6.9mm and 144g vs. Z3′s 7.3mm and 152g.
Finally, a processor is an octa-core Snapdragon 810 64-bit processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage (further expandable to 128GB around microSD memory cards). The device is still waterproof and dustproof, only like all a phones in a Xperia Z-series.
To Sony’s credit, there’s positively zero wrong with any of these numbers. In fact, now that Samsung has given up on waterproofing a flagships, a Sony Xperia Z4 stands alone as a many absolute waterproof Android phone. Based on a looks and tech specs alone, it’s only a tad too identical to a prototype to shake a universe of Android phones.
We’ll be watchful if Sony offers something opposite with a tellurian indication — if such a thing is in a works.
The Sony Xperia Z4 will be accessible in Japan this summer in 4 colors: white, black, copper, and aqua green. There’s no word on when it’ll turn accessible globally.
