First Xperia Z4 sample picture appears

by XB on 7th April 2015

in Imaging, Rumours, Xperia Z4 and Z3+ series

wpid-wp-1428369042962.jpegThe Sony Xperia Z4 leaks are coming through thick and fast now. Earlier we saw some in-the-wild pictures of the handset and now an alleged sample picture from the handset has leaked.

You can see the picture below, or the original 20.7MP 15MB file at the source link.  The EXIF data matches the Xperia Z4, highlighting the ‘Sony E6553’ model number. The picture is likely to be from an early prototype of the Xperia Z4, so further refinements ahead of launch are expected.


Via Esato.

Thanks Ben, difwwh and Kurtdean!

  • Tony Lam

    That seems fake on color, because I downloaded the photo and saw the detail, it showed it is by Photoshop

  • Thariq Mohammed

    cold tone is still there

  • it looks good when zoomed out, but if you look at it it’s pretty bad kinda over processed, even Z1’s photos has better details than this, and why is it photoshopped? :/

  • (C):stem

    Brace yourselves, a lot of expert photographers will criticize the picture quality and the camera capability

  • Timel

    It’s exactly like the past, the same joke like when Z, Z1, Z2 …. Sorry but I don’t believe this shit!

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    EXIF data can edit and I also see it was edit by photoshop. Still waiting to see the real one.

  • In as Sony keep the same sensor will not have real improvement , only makeup software

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    There’s not much to say. If I remember correctly the Z1 leaked sample images were horrible, but when the Z1 came out its camera praised for being the one of the best at the time.

    So hopefully Sony has some great software backing up the their new camera sensor and OIS.

  • Amel_Marie

    Was this produced from superior auto or manual mode?

  • Ibrahem Salah

    Use ur manual mode or root your device too get 20.7 MP superior auto pictures

  • techielover

    looks like a perfect shot with enough details isn’t!!

  • Amel_Marie

    I see.. I did that already. Thanks

  • Amimanot

    A 15 MB 20 MP jpeg? Well that’s a first… I never get past 9 MB

  • Ibrahem Salah

    I did it on my Kitkat can’t do it on my Lollipop yet if you have a link share it please

  • Amel_Marie

    I mean im using kitkat right now. I seldomly use manual but havent rooted my phone.

  • mukul verma

    Mee z1 takes 20mp manual around 7-9 mb, not more than that, how could this be possible?

  • Dakota

    How can you tell it was edited with photoshop?

  • Ibrahem Salah

    Okay NVM

  • mawhob2222

    Xperia z4 is coming with Exmor RS 230 (192 auto focus), because new CMOS image sensor will ship in April 2015

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    Download the original file and look at the properties of the picture you will found it there.

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    Wow 15mb almost reaching the size of raw format.

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    hahaha I wonder if they will really do that. I never expect SONY to give their newest technology to XPERIA line.

  • Gadget Lover

    I was going to say the same thing. Recently lots of A-hole Samsung fans (pretending to be a xperia fan) coming to Xperiablog just bash xperia and Sony. If this photo was labeled as pic taken from Note 5 they would praise like this photo was taken from God phone.

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    Hahaha that’s happen to many site.

    Samsung fan behavior almost makes me never want to buy anything at all from Samsung.

    It would be too embarrassing to be even associated with them.

    Yes 1,2 times

  • Timel

    What makes you think those ass hole guys(pretending to be a xperia fan) are Samsung fans ?

  • Metin Birincioglu

    Bi de türkçe yorum yapal?m :)

    Orjinal resme bakt?m da bence z4 ten çekilmi? bir resim de?il.

  • Timel

    Sony Fanboys, Apple Fanboys, Samsung Fanboys, Microsoft Fanboys etc I don’t see the the difference

    Fanboys really are the worst type of people… Whatever brands!

  • jakobd.

    can calm the Exmor RS IMX230 Apple and Samsung have it more necessary than Sony, it sold so many smartphones. Good night Sony

  • Niels d. G.

    That looks more like dirty lens versus clean lens…

  • Quark Gluon

    This was edited in Photoshop, probably then saved with maximum quality (low compression).

    You sure? Even my S4 takes better pics than Z1. Don’t argue, I’ve tested it. This is because of the behind the hood camera software. MegaPixels don’t matter as long as they aren’t zoomed in.

    You’re one to speak :) Of course they can be a Apple fans too! LG fanboys have some manners so they can be excluded.

  • SM

    same story bro…

  • hcm.

    There is a good track record of unethical business run likewise.

  • Geese Howard

    Wrong! Xperia fanboys protect what they believe and they won’t go bashing others, YOU on the other hand a Samsunk and Sour Apple fanboy go around bashing this site because you know Sony’s phone is THAT great and you can’t take it so you pull off shit like this! Stop trying to cover yourself, you’ve already earned a name for yourself here :)

    And you said fanboys are the worst type of people, that also depends what kind of fanboys they are and what kind of shit they pull :)

    LoL! I’m really so speechless with fanboy like you

    Please at least don’t flatter yourself so much that makes you look so stupid indeed

  • bzhzhJjsbzbz

    pretty sad sony team says “pls”, even more sad it takes another week for z1.

  • Dexter Moregan

    From my place, I am not notified to update my phone.

  • Timel

    No it’s overexposure and high ISO

  • Geese Howard

    You mean you are talking about yourself? Me and you we have a difference here – you are a Samsung Apply Fanboy and I am a Sony fanboy BIG BIG difference here :D

  • Smellslikenirvana

    We need to see better shots like those ‘shot on iphone 6’ galleries

  • Dean Weaver

    Very disappointing quality + same resolution. Thought this was all about doing something NEW & EXCITING…… This (plus all the leaks) is none of these….. Just hope the actual launch is better.

  • Imran Khan

    You My Friend are crazy, my Z1 takes btter pictures than the s5 and sometimes even the iphone 6 (i know how to use manual mode btw)…the Z could best the s4 anytime, it only loses when in low light

  • vzangel

    At this point my expectations of the Z4 are very low, it seems that it will be another awesome looking device, with good specs, some unexplainable flaws, no innovation or any outstanding features and terrible marketing, as always, the same old Sony.

  • Azar

    I’ve never seen any xperia to best a Samsung phone in the camera department. Samsung may not use as good hardware of cam as Sony but their software is so good that it outperforms xperia. Try to compare Note 4 cam vs Xperia Z3, you will see. This one is a fair test cause both have been released in late 14.

  • joseph carmine nero

    check your eyes.I have Z2 and S5.Z2 destroys it

  • Azar
  • Fadi Obaya

    Xperia Z2 worldwide firmware 5.0 rollout has started. Check Xperifirm!

  • joseph carmine nero

    I have first hand usage.why should i don’t trust it and trust samsungarena?

  • aryan1357

    yes india its available now! but not downloading via xperiafirm

  • RamaKrishna

    5.0 worldwide release for XZ3 is not happened,yet older device XZ2 got it..what a shame !

  • Thariq Mohammed

    OTA or Pc Companion

  • Azar

    It’s your own choice on whatever you want to trust, I ain’t forcing you on what to trust or not. I’m just picking out the reality – which one has a better software in terms of camera, which turns out to be Samsung. Also, for average user, superior auto is what they shoot with and it comes out only 8MP out of 21MP meanwhile Samsung has its full res @ 16MP. This is another software downside of Sony.

  • XperiaZ3

    I see no difference as compared with my Z3. Still lots of oversharpening going on. Lens still falls soft towards the sides. Seems like the exact same camera

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    Hahaha, “don’t argue”, fucking hilarious! I guess because one random guy “tests it himself then it means it must be true. It’s not like multiple tech sites have said it was better, and other sites that test camera capabilities ranked the Z1 much higher than the S4… Oh wait, dxomark did rank the Z1 higher than the S4, interesting

  • Azar

    Well, compare note 4 vs Xperia Z3 ya’ll see

    xperia. get 77$/Hourly by doing this.’-‘. < i started working online, completing some basic jobs that only requires from you a computer and internet access and I am happier than ever… It's been 6 months since i started this and i got paid so far total of 36,000 bucks… Basicly i profit close to 80 bucks/h and work for 3-4 hrs most of the days.Best part to whole this thing is that you can decide when to work yourself and for how long and you get a paycheck at the end of each week.

    Actually the leak about Z4 is annoying…NOTHING new… It’s jut like to see a Z3 with a new CPU…Those leak disappoint me. I knew Z3 will not bring new censor so I waited forward Z4 but seem nothing new… such a weird joke…
    I hope the official release will bring good surprise.

  • Blacksparrow15

    Oh Timel here you are again. Cheers! :D

  • Blacksparrow15

    Hi Timel,

    See you around :D

  • Blacksparrow15

    And even today, sammy uses Sony’s camera tech and sensor. HA HA HA

  • Blacksparrow15

    I think Sony should try this phone upgrade cycle:

    and so on. PER YEAR.

  • kawawangpinas101

    Fanboys Are just hype.

  • Timel

    Because Xperia fanboys are just chicken, they are just a small group of people, they know Xperia devices suck Xperia brand not even popular and they know that they never win when out of Sony cave

  • Timel

    Xperia fanboys are just chicken and blind whatever they’re still smart enough that don’t kill themselves becuz they are just a small group of people, they know Xperia devices suck and have many weak points to attack Xperia brand not even a popular and they know that they never win when walk out of Sony cave

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    “sigh” You’re always disgusting.

  • The Guy


  • Emil Oskarsson

    You are obviously, pretending that you own the Xperia z1and stuff. In fact you are sitting there with a budget phone from Samsung which you claim are the best phone out there ;)

  • Emil Oskarsson

    I’m not really a fan boy of Sony, I just love some of their products because they are working so well compared to others in my humble opinion….

  • kido

    No imx230 sensor????

  • Azar

    What a shame on sony that Sammy takes better pics with sony’s sensors than Sony itself. Sony has the best camera hardware but they don’t really make use of it much with their software.

  • jasonlowr

    Well, that’s not the case with the comment I’ve read recently.

  • jasonlowr

    Hahaha. Good point.

  • Shamoy Rahman

    You’re right about LG fanboys having manners. I hate Samsung and I hate Samsung fanboys. I bought the Galaxy S3, S5, a Samsung Smart 3D 40″ TV, and a Samsung printer before. Worst pieces of hyped up market gimmick trash I’ve ever bought, I thought the S5 was an improvement but nope, still garbage. UI was so ugly and performance was terrible due to touchwiz. I didn’t even sell my S5, I just burned it because that’s how shitty it was. I’m not even a fanboy of Sony but I don’t even get how people actually worship an overhyped company like Samsung. Switched over to the Xperia Z3 and I just have to say the build quality and design is elegant and everything is near perfect (though it lacks the AMOLED and the camera can be improved quite a bit). The Samsung Smart 3D TV I bought back in 2011 started forming green lines after 8 months of buying the TV, I sent it to warranty and they fixed it but after 2 months the same problem happened again. I threw the TV off the 4th floor balcony. Guess what I continued using? I continued using my Sony Trinitron TV that my parents bought 20 years ago back in 1995 for a few months before I bought a Sony W900A series 3D Smart TV back in 2013. This thing is gorgeous, and sitting in my living room for almost 2 years now. Now what happened to my printer? It was lucky enough to last 3 years. The toner cartidge inside exploded and completely ruined 500 sheets of paper and all the parts inside. Its not fanboyism, its basic trust that I can’t even hold in Samsung products but my family has been buying many Sony products for 3 decades now, not a single one has failed us. Maybe Samsung caught the quality boat now but after all these horrible experiences I’m never buying a Samsung product ever again.

    ¿ Maybe they have tattoos of all the Samsung
