Could the Xperia Z4 have virtually the same dimensions as the Z3?

by XB on 16th March 2015

in Rumours, Xperia Z4 and Z3+ series

Xperia logoSerial leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer who has a credible track record of leaks over at recently supposedly revealed the dimensions of the Xperia Z4, Sony’s next flagship smartphone. What is interesting is that if the dimensions turn out to be true, they are virtually identical to that of the Xperia Z3.

According to his leak channel, @OnLeaks, the Xperia Z4 will have dimensions of 146.3 x 71.9 x 7.2mm. This compares to the Xperia Z3 that has dimensions of 146 x 72 x 7.3mm. So we are looking at a marginally thinner handset, but pretty much the same otherwise.

What this also tells us though is that expect the design to be very similar, something that has already been given away by the recent chassis leaks. Obviously there could be a weight difference between models, our sources suggest that Sony is targeting a weight of around 140 grams (the Xperia Z3 weighs 152g). We’ll bring you further info on the Xperia Z4 as soon as we have it.

Update: @OnLeaks has also confirmed a 5.2-inch display that fits within these dimensions.

Thanks xperiaDROID!

    First comment yeay!

  • Fadi Obaya

    No cookies for you

  • Armaan Komal

    But the Chassis Leak suggests 6.3mm for the width.
    Guess we will know exact thing in about a month from now when it will be announced.

  • DonRox

    I really hope they would fit a 5.4 inch screen in there

  • Clarence Alvarado

    Most likely they don’t want that popular camera bulge on IPhone and Galaxy S6 that’s why they’re keeping that 7.2mm thickness.

  • P9

    really true time for me to go from my beloved Z xD xD
    Sony all the way.
    pls don’t make us disappointed with Z4, Sony.

  • Amel_Marie

    I dont want cookies, i want lollipop for my z3 haha

  • Dan

    I hope they show something in new design. IMO All next flagship must look diffrent much diffrent (then now) and got something special in material design (for now) another clock widget or lockscreen some one nice detal ;)

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    I’m eager to know what’s the special color for this Z4. Copper or champagne gold would be nice.

  • xperiaDROID

    Can’t wait! Come on, I hope it won’t take too long for Sony to unveil the Z4.

    Btw Xperiablog, I think you thanked the wrong person lol. I sent you the Z4 leaked specs by GSMArena, not this one. You’re welcome, anyways! xD

  • xperiaDROID

    Still love my Z! But I hope Sony will unveil the Z4 quickly, or else I will get attracted by other phones.

  • xperiaDROID

    It’s possible, if the bezels are thin like the LG G3.

  • Alireza Azizzadeh

    Xperiablog, please share the news. and thank me for sharing it!

  • xperiaDROID

    You will get Gingerbread for your Z3. xD

  • xperiaDROID

    Wow, calm yo titahs. Thanks for sharing. :P

  • Vuyo Ncube

    Bigger screen, better speakers, bigger battery and OIS in the same sized body, please!!!

  • ScreenShot Please :p

  • Irfan Faiz

    I’d say a 2560×1440 screen and a Snapdragon 810 SoC would be the only differences from the Z3.

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    you forgot 5mp front camera.

  • Maxx Tan
  • Snorky112

    OIS is not important, because digital image stabilization from Sony is really good already, they can put their money on something else

  • Snorky112

    pic or it didn’t happen

  • z3firm

    what is the build number?

  • Maxx Tan


  • Indashio

    Xperia Z3 Lollipop firmware

  • Shaik Ilyas


  • Maxx Tan
  • yuskhayru

    Lollipop rollout, confirmed!

  • Abdul Ghani

    update is out for z3 and z3c for now

  • gamer324

    Yeah, that’s what’s bugging me about it too. Who knows maybe Sony is going back to using resin between the frame and the glass panels, or more likely, imo, they might use a bevelled finish for the glass panels ala z3 compact.
    I guess we should know more in the coming months or so as Sony will probably want a summer reveal to really up the ante on the james bond tie-in marketing.

  • -Simone-

    If this is Fake…..I find you.Remember that.

  • Amel_Marie

    How about Sony pc companion?

  • Keion London

    Guys it’s difficult to decide, I’m leaning towards the z5 only because I don’t believe the snapdragon 810 is a worthy upgrade compared to Samsung’s latest exynos chipset. The snapdragon 820 seems like the better option however I am faced with a little problem. Based on Sony’s erratic behavior as of late we have no idea when the z5 will be released unless xperiablog acquires a “super” leak. Can I get some opinions concerning this please?

  • Amel_Marie

    Very funny

  • -Simone-

    Baltic Z3 Compact Firmware yet!!!

  • GraphiteEdge

    Z2? Z2? Z2?! :D

  • Snorky112

    does it still use Dalivk ? or ART ?

  • Simo

  • -Simone-

    Snorky sei italiano se non dico baggianate.

  • -Simone-

    A proposito posso flashare no?Senza sbloccare bootloader?
    Speriamo non abbia problemi.Tanto ho diversi dispositivi di riserva comunque

  • Snorky112

  • -Simone-


    Sorry man.XD

    Thanks for your help

  • Snorky112

  • z3firm

  • Lorenzo

  • -Simone-

  • Lorenzo

  • -Simone-


  • -Simone-

  • -Simone-

  • Maxx Tan
  • What is it? it is Xperia Z4?

  • Ryan Kumar-jassi

    I hope for anyone who gets the z4 it fits better in the hand kuz even though my brothers one plus one has a bigger screen than my z2 it still feels like it fits better

  • Lorenzo

    Purtroppo no, è dal 2011 con l’Arc che non flasho un xperia.
    Prova a vedere se su xda c’è qualche guida per convertire il file in formato .tft

  • rvjaywaks

    Fucking Lollipop are here. :) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but my phone is Z1 :(

  • Simo

    Ovvio che puoi flashare senza sbloccare niente

  • -Simone-

    Non trovo il file tft.E non riesco a crearlo.

  • Lorenzo
  • Simo

    Non lo so,io sto a scuola mo

  • -Simone-

    Grazie del tuo aiuto.Ma ho uno Z3C e il file TFT e per lo Z3.

  • Ørjan Laxaa

    OIS is importanf for low light images. Cranking the ISO up to 12.800 isn’t such a good idea for such a small sensor.

    But what Sony need most of all is better image processing and a less cluttered camera app.

  • Lorenzo

    Ops, non lo sapevo.
    Comunque controlla xda nella sezione dello Z3c, qualcuno lo posterà sicuramente

  • -Simone-

    Ne ho trovato uno ma è per D5833.Io ho D5803.

  • Snorky112

    I just think that people can’t do anything but complain, sony camera has larger view than other phones, takes bigger pictures, that’s maybe why quality isnt that good but it’s still great and the picture itself is better than others, and don’t forget up to 20mpx

  • Dexter

    5.5 inch fit in 146.3 x 71.9 x 7.2mm would be great.

  • Vuyo Ncube

    Sony’s digital stabilisation is best in class and practically matches mechanical OIS but it crops the image and reduces video frame rate (it’s disabled at 1080p/60fps). Plus it might give some breathing room for the image processors to produce better images.

  • Gadget Lover

    But hopefully with better Camera. This time Sony must remove all the inconsistence that bug the auto mode. All I want from Sony is a great camera that can shame the competition.

  • -Simone-

    Ahh a scuola.

    Ti faccio rosicare.Tieni il link per il donwload

    Z3 COmpact FTF File HERE D5803

  • Simo


  • Lollipop update will cause 50% drop of activity here

  • Gadget Lover

    SD810 overheating rumors are overrated/blown out of proportion. The first batch of SD810 are full of bugs (and hence overheating) that’s for sure but the new batches are overheating free. Even the lg g flex2 is now overheating free said vlad from theverge (I recommend you read the review). My suggestion will be just wait for a trusted review site like Anandtech (anandtech said they’ll try to review xperia device in the near future) then decide if SD810 will your money.

  • Simo

    Di che paese è?

  • Jaissal S

    I’m eagerly anticipating the update too for my Z1. I believe that we’ll start seeing it later next month.

  • Rock Kickass

    I tweeted him and asked him for his best guess of when we’ll see the Xperia Z4 announced. His reply was: No idea, but soon I guess… ;)

    I’m expecting a mid-April/end-April announcement with a May/June release. Possibly June to tie in with the release of the Z4 Tablet. Again, take with a slight grain of salt, but I’m looking forward to the Z4.

  • Amel_Marie

    Instead of new sensor and improved algorithm,i hope z4 will have dual tone flash. Or maybe front flash as well.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Decrease the bezels and increase the thickness a bit, would be a stunning phone! Bezels like z3c would be awesome on z4:)

  • Battal Aljadei

    Of course, because i can’t believe Sony could do better anymore .

    Leaks and other rumors nourish the unofficial news Sony Xperia Z4 keep coming and the latest leaks apprenent that the design of the Xperia Z4 would be very similar to the current Z3, very little difference to the eye. However, an important difference, it y ‘will no longer a “cover” to the SIM card, but a drawer like that found on the iPhone 6 and other recent flagships.
