Attention will soon start to turn to Sony’s next flagship handset, now that the Xperia Z3 has been released. The Sony Xperia Z4 is expected to launch towards the end of March 2015, no surprise here given past releases in previous years. AndroidOrigin earlier today released what it says are leaked specifications of the Xperia Z4.
The Xperia Z4 is believed to include a 5.5-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440) display, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 MSM8994 64-bit chipset (octa-core processor, Adreno 430 GPU) and 4GB RAM. The Xperia Z4 will also apparently be the first Sony Xperia device to sport a curved Exmor RS CMOS imaging sensor.
Other features include 32GB internal storage, a dedicated amp for audio and the continuation of Sony’s OmniBalance design language.
As mentioned earlier, these are only rumours, so take with a pinch of salt. However, if there is any truth to these rumours, it sounds like the Xperia Z4 would be a stunning device. Some of it does sound fanciful, for example we’re not sure a dedicated amp would be possible whilst maintaining a slim form factor.
Additionally, whilst we have longed for 32GB internal storage to become a standard for Sony’s flagship devices this has not happened yet. There are also no signs of the curved imaging sensors that were announced earlier this year. Although depending on the timing of when the Xperia Z4 will launch, there is a good chance it may arrive with a curved sensor.
Anyway, what is your view? Would you see the above specs of the Xperia Z4 as a genuine upgrade over the Xperia Z2/Z3? If you think they are too good to be true, what sticks out? What else would you like to see on the Xperia Z4? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
Thanks to all that sent this in!
