Supposed Xperia Z4 Dual screenshots leak; gives a glimpse of Lollipop

by XB on 23rd February 2015

in Featured Content, Rumours, Xperia Z4 and Z3+ series

Xperia Z4 Dual screenshot_2We have previously speculated that the Sony Xperia Z4 (codename Ivy) is likely to land in a dual SIM variant – after all Sony released the Xperia Z3 Dual in select markets. A few leaked screenshots have emerged which are believed to come from the Sony Xperia Z4 Dual.

The model number is masked in the “About phone” settings, but it highlights that the Xperia Z4 will run the Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 chipset and Android 5.0.2 Lollipop. The screenshot also suggests that Sony will use a kernel version beginning with “3.10”, whilst the software build number will start with “28”.

The settings menu shows that this is the Dual SIM model, with the screenshots giving a brief glimpse as to what Lollipop may looking like in the upcoming update for older handsets.

    Damn it, Google! You’ve neutered Sony’s design language.

  • ehhh this is too colorful for sonys style and my taste :(

  • Abhishek Kumar

    Ugly :(

  • Peter

    I like it. Still think original Z UI was better – more dark and classy – but this is good too.

  • Sweggity Dude

    We are Sony and we are at loss, Let’s make the UI ugly so we gain more customers.

  • bao trung giang

    Pretty good!

  • doraemonboi

    So, there will be Z4 in MWC.

  • CopperStew

    Kinda ugly as shit….

  • Clarence Alvarado

    Why only blue?

  • I don’t care about theme. My issue if is if they’ll sell the Mobile Brand … so, I’m worry about the future more than the color. My Xperia Z will be my last Sony (ericsson soul) phone ? This is my issue actually.

  • mUSICA

    hmmm i love that setting menu style looks nice an neat

  • Winter Soldier

    it’s Beautiful..
    I love it

  • xperia

    Hmmm.. Good news sony :)

  • cp2020

    Are u blind? It is an absolute disaster…
    Just give us users the choice . Black or white i hate white, it is off putting , blue? Thats just another story. Dark theme was always the best

  • Hmphh

    I throwed up little bit in my mouth…

  • abc

    I expect more drastic changes than this..

  • SatanSoulSeparator

    Its pretty cool. It’s much more better than the stock Lollipop menu. Also, you should all remember the theme changer option, which could make this blue thing pink or even green…

  • Such a great news for sony xperia z family

  • Daddy cool

    The kernel isn’t 3.4.0 or 3.4.5. They downgraded or what? Plus i hardly believe that sony could release a UI similar to this one. I think it’s fake….

  • Tsakane

    Omg I waited so long for this ugly mess! :(

  • Red John

    Woow Sony! That`s pretty awesome, I like it very much. Stock like UI as always, it`s good. Much better than on my galaxy s4. I hope that they`ll put DNC headphones in package

  • Tsakane

    I really hope we can still use themes because it looks terrible

  • theskig

    It’s ugly.
    I stopped update notifications on my phone.

  • Patrol619

    The UI is very nice for me, finally something new and fresh ;) Only the Wi-Fi and signal indicators are like taken from Ice Cream Sandwich ;/

  • Lukáš Pávl

    So 3.10 IS less then 3.4??

  • theskig

    Like an ice cream in the butt

  • Red John

    It`s not ugly, and if you don`t like it, that means that you don`t like Lollipop, it`s exactly as it must be

  • Empoleon

    From the look of the new screenshot comparing to this, they should have kept the wifi and bluetooth switch. Other elements look pretty neat but doesn’t feel Xperia or unique very much, basically it feel more AOSP than ever, but I guess it’s still better than Touchwiz. I really hope more things will get more changes to differ more from AOSP and other companies.

    Lollipop looks like it should be the touchscreen interface for a Vw Beetle. It may as well have flowers!

  • theskig

    It’ so hard to believe that there are many people who really don’t give a f**k about useless updates?

  • Muhammad Hassan

    SONY …..I love you ..but you really disappointed me with this dialer ……. Pure android has much better dialer than SONY …..I am not gonna update to lollipop with this dialer

  • David Hvatov

    Fuck yes!

  • Lukáš Pávl

    It actually looks like somebody’s first custom ROM. But anyway i have mixed feelings About the look. I think we must get used to it.

  • Empoleon

    I also really hope new UI will have a lot more fluid and cool animations

  • fluxx

    As long as there are other colors than ugly candy blue I’m quite ok with it.

  • Vincent

    So F**king ugly..gonna switch to note 4 now..

  • Yali AA

    They haven’t modified the UI AT ALL!
    There is no skin from Xperia whatsoever here.. So this is just the new Lollipop with a hint of mod.

  • Raj

    Agree bro. It’s disgusting. LG and Sammy did a better job with their UIs. Sony kinda messed it. Kitkat is way better. I’ll probably stick with it or Root and get a CM 12 ROM with Sony Apps once a stable build comes out.

    Hope these screenshotas are fake.

    The stock theme is blue. I believe that you can change it throw Xperia themes.

  • Emma222

    It’s looking good. It’s about damn time to update their UI. Now I really want to know how the contacts app will look like. I absolutely hate the current one.

  • pjlk

    Walkman Lollipop UI was great. But this leaked UI is bad. I hope they keep the dark/gray UI but a bit lollipop.

  • name

    Its a fake . Dual is supposed to have 2 Sim, I only see 1 icon.

  • Raymond

    I hope so, still though so much looks out of place.

  • jonathan3579

    It looks better in my opinion…except that recent app icon, it definitely doesn’t line up with home and back. I’m glad they’re updating their UI though.

  • Sadman Khan

    Sony didn’t even bother to make new status bar icons. Gave the stock android ones instead -_-

  • z3owner

    If it’s a Z4, why is the settings screen only show until ‘xperia connectivity’ and ‘more’???

    these are the same ppl who wants new ui, an wen the ui is changed ,they say its ugly, an if sony doesnt change the ui these are the same ppl sayn fk sony same old sony ui, if u dnt like the ui u can always choose other brand no need to cry its just a ui u cnt get ur own if u want, dnt expect sony to make diffrnt ui for every single person just bcoz u dnt like thiers, be happy with wat u get.

  • Where did you get this

  • Snorky112

    nope, 3.10 > 3.4

  • empoleon

    I personally think they haven’t change the UI enough, need more visual changes to differ it more from AOSP and other brands: from the icons in the status bar to the navigation bar (it should have the ability to change color like status bar to make the screen feel bigger, more aligned icons, etc.) Hope it comes with neat and cool animation too. Still, it’s too early to judge but this new UI looks promising.
    They should keep the wifi and bluetooth switches though.

    The settings are fine looking to me. Compared to stock Lp, they look less boring and plain, at least colors and icons are a little vivid! Status bar icons are alright, even if they resemble the ICS style. Navbar is, in my opinion, superior to the stock one: the home button is way more intuitive and looks cool. My only complain is about the dialer, whose unfinished grid looks hideous and cheap. I am very curious about new quick toggles and lockscreen.

  • David Onter

    1. It’s not official. This could be the biggest bullshit, just like the leaked “Sense 7” ones. So don’t talk like Sony has already messed up everything.
    2. If it’s real it’s probably an unfinished Alpha-build which is still in developement. A lot of things could still change.

  • Disaster indeed. I wonder why their mobile division won’t fall badly.

  • My little advise. Sony make great hardwares, yet, horrible softwares. So:

    Buy their phone, and put cyanogen mod on it. And enjoy full blissful phone usage.

    I did that with my z2 and the only times I regretted buying the phone was the time period that I had stock. I took that away, and I’m the happiest Sony phone user ever.

    I don’t know why but these screenshots feel really disappointing: since it show lame old flat out messaging and dialer icons, boring dull color wallpaper, out of place playstation icon since it seem like album doesn’t get any update in both UI and feature except for the icon is kinda weird since the navigation rotate to landscape but the shooting icon and manual mode icon and other elements don’t

    It’s too early to judge but it really feel like all Sony offer is just some changes in the UI to look more like stock lollipop, ditch some good Xperia elements, keep some lame ones, no news possible features at all. It’s like they do not even try hard. Really hope this is only prototype and there will be more to see and awe.

  • Sadman Khan

    Definitely not in the phone -_-

  • WilliamTell13

    I think these are real, but from an older build. I’m sure the final build will be a lot cleaner. At least I hope so.

  • Timbo1

    not gonna update over a stupid dialer that can be covered up by a theme anyway? That is taking it way too far IMO.

    I agree blind fanboys are fucking annoying, just as annoying as trolls. Fanboys and trolls contribute nothing but complete, blind obedience and that makes whatever you say or do have less meaning than if you said nothing at all.

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    I have a feeling the blue is mainly there because of the theme selected. Sony already does their current UI like that, specific theme employs that specific color on the Contacts, Text Messaging and other apps

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    I get where you are coming from. But shouldn’t Sony change their UI? You may not like the more vibrant colors but when people look at Android skins/UI Sony is rarely mentioned. Samsung and LG are because their bloated but feature rich, HTC is their because it’s more mature slick.

    If lightly skinned Android skins/UI’s were what people really wanted then Motorola and Sony would be at the top, but unfortunately that’s just not how he general Android space thinks at the moment.

    The Nexus devices are great for those who want unbloated UI’s that are straight to the Android experience. So would Sony be better off ditching TimeScape and just going with pure vanilla Android?

  • Alexx

    Looks nice… But the battery icon is awful with the new 5.0 design :/

    They could release in March

    That will be quite obvious, it’s really in sony’s design style. I’d be surprised if it’ll be a static blue.

    All I hear is funds booing Sony for what they created. . . I mean come on its a leak. Let us wait and see the whole UI first and let the judging commence.

    Im also not quite sure that this is it, I mean look at the dialer, hmm they might want to change it a bit before launch. I don’t mind the color actually. Fresher than current experia ui. I’ll wait and see where this goes, afterall end of February is near :)

  • Matt

    Well at least it’s not bloated.

  • Matt

    Hope there are more people like you. Afterall it’s not the final UI just yet. Let us wait and look where this take xperia line

  • lbhgf

    i love the design but if that middle march is true (if everything goes as planned) than fuck off sony… my current one is my last sony phone i swear. L preview update was out there since june exactly for make everything smooth when the final version is out, but it looks to me that those bloatware shit like ar, ar fun, whatsnew, sociallive etc. was much more important then take a look at that, sony you can be proud for yourself, you have basically 4 fuckin device to update and you cant even do that in time which you promised,

  • JMoss

    What about these status bar icons? This screenshot comes from the Play Store (Sony Walkmate app)

  • inspire

    I hate to say this but a majority of people like those poppy colored screens with that cartoon-ish fonts and immature icons (read Sammy / LG) which are far from being subtle and classy.

    I’d say HTC and Sony are a bit on par. Diligently done. Imo Sony has scope to improve a bit. I doubt if going vanilla will help them, people may not buy it given the comparatively low priced nexus.

    Damn! Sony c’mon, do a nexus device!

  • David Onter

    You want to tell me that the Xperia UI is more lightweight than Sense? :D Maybe more lightweight than Sense 4 but not 5 and 6 ^^

    Well there’s the question. Seeing as the Z4 could very well be Sony’s last flagship, should Sony just go all out, bring a huge feature rich, customizable UI like LG and Samsung, layered on top of their current UI? Or should they follow in the Nexus footsteps and go Vanilla and Android?

    I do have to admit, minus the lame splashy noises from LG’s UI I like having the ability to choose animations, change folder colors and the other stuff they jam in their UI

    You can edit it with a simple theme and honestly I am curious to see how many time people use dialer. One time every months or less ? we all have number registered… And we all use App. So expected when you will compose a number that you extremely rarely do. You will not see the dialer. Android is full of possibilities, use it.

  • Luca

    It’s because Google recommends that every developer uses those icons in the Play Store screenshots(they are just samples); there is literally 0% chance of these icons being used in Xperia UI.

    First I have to say that Even I actually prefer a transparent glass-like UI (Because it looks very classy and deserves with Xperia flagship devices) more than a boring Google’s material design but it’s OK if Sony will integrate its boring Material Design with the Smooth and Cool animations

    The smooth and cool animations effect that I mentioned should be something like this

    Sony has always been associated with beauty and finesse.
    I’m sorry, but Sony’s Lollipop UI looks cheap. And looks like a rushed job.
    That + button covering part of the world time weather is these little details that add up.

    And for those of you who say ‘just install a theme you like over it if you don’t like it’… we saw how well that worked for Windows 8 when those Microsoft apologists told those ‘haters’ to install a third party app if they don’t like the lack of a Start menu. First impressions count.

    Unless Sony really brings something compelling e.g. Playstation related, my next phone will either be a HTC or LG, especially if either of them has a dual sim feature. I will transfer over some xperia ringtones and wallpapers just to keep some nostalgia alive.

    Nah, have you seen Lollipop with Touchwiz? It’s a lot closer to AOSP than it is to Touchwiz before and definitely unlike what Sony has done with their Xperia UI. Everyone moved from skeumorphism but Sony clung to it for so long and it’s refreshing to see manufacturers work with Google’s design language instead of against it.

    it doesn’t look good… Sony make better ui

  • 3rdflyleaf

    Oh my God, Those navigation buttons look unbalance. I don’t know but it hurts my eyes. The original Lollipop buttons are better. I’m really hoping that this is not the final design.

    I know it can be change with themes but the default theme should look and appeal to general people.

    Also the original Lollipop design looks better., This is not Sony to me, Sony is about beautiful design. right? :(

    By far htc has the best integration of lollipop ‘I love the way the animation blended’ from notifications to dailer. So far sony looks Ok
    Would be anticipating to see what it looks at the end
    As for s5 lollipop…’ewwwww’ horrible

    It appears to be fake, photoshoped. Why would they use Kitkat like wifi icon in settings and stock wifi icon on the status bar. Also different applications should have different colored status bar, in the above screenshots I see all have blue color.

    To the recent update of the Walkman app, status bar changes to purple and if the above are real then contacts, clock, dialer will have blue and walkman purple. It looks odd. Furthermore, how to access contacts, favorites from the dialer, it only has back arrow. Should I go back to see the contacts, or my favorites contacts.

    If they are using the complete stock assets, then why it is taking longer for Sony to release the update.

    Even Xperia z1 they(Sony) think as old phone. But there is no major difference. First they want to support most of their device like moto. Don’t release to much model. Do like Samsung n lg. They have good strategy. I love Xperia device than anything. They have super design.

    the sensor is not shitty, sony software and hardware implementation is shitty.

  • A.o.D

    At this moment its hard to tell if its real…but that album icon and the background wallpaper looks real sony-made

  • slkc

    The current UI looks better. Actually, my opinion is that the material design looks too ‘simple’ and is not ‘artistic’ enough. While the screen is getting better (HD, Triluminos tech…) to show more sophisicated graphics, the UI design is getting simpler. For example, there are some shades and layers of colours in the icons of the current UI. Of course, hoping that there would be some transitions, transparency stuff to make UI cool… Anyway, for those who don’t like the UI, just install a launcher.

    Sometimes I use the ‘cosmic flow’ background (Xperia S) on my Z… still looks modern nowadays

    I do like the look of this home screen. I just hope the Lollipop update doesn’t make my Z1 laggy. If that happens, I’ll be more looking forward to the Xperia Z4

  • Shehab Skull

    Mmmmm the new settings UI looks nice especially when u focus on the nice shadow under the bars .. But dialer is sucks I hope they are still editing on it :) and about the blue color I am sure it is just a theme .

    There’s a new updates for Motiongraph for Xperia. The icon seems like has changed into material design at the Play Store, but mine still the same as the old version after i updated it.

    Do you have any idea why?

  • There isn’t any SIM inserted in the phone (see SIM icon with question mark) and the screenshot is probably fake.

  • Cyber Raptor

    Looks really fake. I’m no expert in photoshop, but you can see lot of artifacts around status bar icons and stuff like that. I’m pretty sure this guy (or Girl?) copied and pasted parts from different pics and made one :/

  • Nguy?n T?n L?c

    Indeed, really hope so.

  • Kevin A. Koesoema

    I miss the elegance of the old Xperia UI already…… What the hell with that light blue status bar, my eyes hurts lol

  • Nguy?n T?n L?c

    Also now that I notice, the drop shadow effects on the title bar in various screenshots are really inconsistent (setting – too much, dialer – fairly ok, clock app – nearly none) so yeah, basically, hope they are not real ones.

  • asd

    its time to block updates i think… this flat design is terrible….

    Look on image resolution – 20.7 MP, 5248 ? 3936 pixels! And if you will read information about brand new Sony Exmor RS IMX230 sensor, it has 5344 x 4016 pixel resolution

  • Awesome, nice graphics

  • ITK

    Pretty sure that no Xperia Z-series flagship phone will show up at MWC.

  • Hopefully Sony has left its software amprent and that we’ll get the best of both worlds.

    Oh no, that’s look bad, I no longer wait for lollipop for my Z2 :(
    Sony please bring updated for 4.4.4 and omit LOL i POP… very very bad feeling about the look. In my provate opinion it is the ugliest Android verion ever.

    Which version of the theme do you use & how did you get that icon pack

  • Shaik Ilyas

    DstrikerZ1KaiROM 5.0 Custom Rom, with PureXperia v4 theme.

  • theotherone

    my sentiments exactly

  • ml

    I think the blue is selectable – that’s why every action bar is blue in the screenshots.
    I’m pretty sure you can choose a theme with different colours in lollipop or it would look weird
