Sony unveiled their latest flagship phone today, reports say. The new Xperia Z4 comes out without much of a fuss which is very strange. Sony is probably the only company to gives its new smartphone such a low key launch.
This new Z4 model will now replace the Z3 as the company’s flagship. Though there isn’t significant design change or hardware improvement, it still is better than the old one.
The Z4 comes with a 5.2 inch 1080p screen which is sharp enough if not QHD. The phone is slightly thinner at 6.4mm and weighs around 144 grams. The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 810 processor. This is a 64-bit octo core processor which was expected to be in flagship models this year.
The rear camera comes with a 20.7MP shooter and the front camera comes with wide angle lens. Your selfies will get better this year. Multi tasking should be a breeze as it boasts a 3GB RAM which better than last year. The in-built storage is capped at 32GB but you can use the expandable memory slot to extend your storage up to 128 gigs.
Battery is a nice improvement at 2,930mAh. This number alone can’t guarantee us great battery life but it is something to be seen in the future. The device will also run Android 5.0 lollipop out of the box.
It will also be water and dust-resistant just like the previous models.
Price and launch
There is no news about the price but the device is expected to launch this summer. Z3 gathered positive reviews from all over the globe. It’ll be interesting to see how people receive this new device from Sony.
With tough competition from the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the HTC One M9, this year will be a tough year for Sony’s new smartphone if it doesn’t stands up to people’s expectations. We’ll know that in the coming weeks, won’t we?
