In Japan today, Sony officially announced the Xperia Z4. This is exciting news, because although Sony phones haven’t been entirely popular in the United States, they make some of the best all around phones on the market, if not the best.
The Sony Xperia Z4 will use Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 810 procesor, which seems to be the trend. It will use 3 GB RAM and a 20.7 MP rear camera, just like last year’s model. The front camera gets a major upgrade, a 5.1 MP camera with image stabilization. The display is the same as last year, 5.2″ 1080p LCD, which is perfect.
The battery is 2930 mAh, which is a bit smaller than the Xperia Z3; however, if the battery life is anywhere near what it is on the Xperia Z3 Compact, users will be very pleased.
The Sony Xperia Z4 will have a metal frame and come in white, black, copper, and aqua green. It will be 6.9 mm thick and come in at 144 grams. The Sony Xperia Z4 will be available in Japan later this summer, although there is no word on if and when it will be available anywhere else.
