I know it’s a little early but there’s already info leaked on the upcoming Xperia Z4, which will most likely make it’s debut in 2 months during CES in January. So far we know the following :
Perhaps you’ve already consumed breakfast, and it is too early for lunch. Still, it is time for you to head toward the spice rack and pull out the salt, because we suggest that you take this story with a least a grain of the stuff. A report published on Saturday lists the rumored specs for both the Sony Xperia Z4 Compact and the Sony Xperia Z4 Ultra. You could say that when it comes to Sony’s first half smartphone releases for 2015, this will be the long and short of it.
The Sony Xperia Z4 Compact is expected to maintain the tradition of previous Xperia Compact models by offering flagship type specs in a, well, compact package. For the Xperia Z4 Compact, that means a 4.7-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. That combination should provide a high pixel density. Under the hood will be the Snapdragon 810 CPU and there will be 3GB of RAM on board. The device will feature 32GB of native storage and will be equipped with stereo speakers. Back and front-facing cameras will weigh in at 20.7MP and 5MP, respectively. The Xperia Z4 Compact will have IP68 certification and come with LTE Cat.9, Bluetooth 4.1 and NFC connectivity. While a precise battery capacity wasn’t leaked, the phone should offer wireless charging. Sony Xperia Z4 Fact or Myth ?
The Sony Xperia Z4 Ultra will be equipped with a 6.44-inch screen, with a resolution of 1440 x 2560. It also will employ the Snapdragon 810 CPU and have 3GB of RAM inside. A 16MP camera adorns the back of the unit, and the phablet is said to resemble an overgrown Sony Xperia Z3. While the Sony Xperia Z Ultra supported the use of a pencil as an input tool, the Xperia Z4 Ultra will come with its own stylus. The battery capacity for the handset needs to be large to support the huge screen, and the talk is that the cell will weigh in between 3500 and 4000mAh. This is quite a bit different than previous rumors of a Xperia Z4 Ultra with a 5.9-inch glass, powered by a Snapdragon 805 chipset.
Due to the shortages of the Snapdragon 810 chipset, both of these models are now expected to be delayed with a possible launch during the second quarter of the year. On the other hand, the Sony Xperia Z4 and Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet are both expected to be introduced on January 5th, just before the start of the 2015 CES show.
