Sony Xperia Z4 announced in Japan

by XB on 20th April 2015

in Featured Content, Xperia Z4 and Z3+ series


Xperia Z4 ThumbLooks like the ‘Xperia Z3 Neo’ rumours were wrong as Sony Japan has quietly unveiled the Xperia Z4. The handset is no different to the one that has been heavily rumoured over recent weeks and months. The design is very similar to the Xperia Z3, although it adopts the stereo speaker positioning of the Xperia Z2 towards the edge of the top and bottom. The handset will launch in four colours (black, white, copper and aqua green) later this summer. No word of an international launch so far.

Changes from the Sony Xperia Z4 include a slightly thinner chassis with a thickness of 6.9mm (146 × 72 × 6.9 mm) and a 5MP front-facing camera with 25mm wide angle. It also comes with a Snapdragon 810 chipset, 32GB internal storage and 3GB RAM. The Xperia Z4 keeps the 5.2-inch 1080p display and has a weight of 144 grams and 2930 mAh battery capacity.

Thanks to all that sent this in!

  • Dilesh Perera

    bit disappointing in terms of design doesn’t it ? :(

  • What??? No metal?? :O

  • ryq24

    Disappointed.

  • Gutt Grinder

    How sad……

    (I have nothing else to say)

  • mountain

    They have again reduced the size of the battery to accommodate the thinner body. Other than that, I see even less difference moving from Z2 to Z3. Lets see how Sony is pulling it off this time.

  • amirulJeffry

    Meh. Next?!

  • suman sil

    Where is the lollipop update for t2 ultra??? I cnt wait

  • I think you have a typo: “Changes from the Sony Xperia Z4 include a slightly thinner chassis” Supposed to be from the “Z3”

  • You know what this phone should’ve been called? Xperia Z3… S. I was kinda hoping for the previous article’s design but I guess that’s just concept. I doubt the Z5 would look any different. Also, 2K screen, smaller battery, and SD810? Battery is gonna burn fast on this device.

  • Akand

    Sorry Sony, I am out. You don’t deserve anymore chance. Go to hell. :'(

  • ????? ????????

    Ready to buy right now!

  • Nothing new?!

  • jag

    It’s not a big change from Z3 but I guess they have already perfected the Z series so there are no more things to change. It’s kinda disappointing I must say but that’s the best it can get now.

    Btw, the aqua green (looks blue to me) is really beautiful!

  • Jardany Estrada Nuñez

    The good thing is that We are gonna do some good fried fish on this phone playing some games like asphalt and GTA… jajaja xD Thanks snapdragon 810 xD

  • “This product is a product aimed at completing the form of Xperia Z series.”

    Aqua green looks like silver with a hint of green.

  • Well, if you expected big changes, then its time to wait for the Z5.

    Z4 is a good bye to biannual revisions.
    Z5 will have a year worth of development.

  • Shelta

    Although I have a Z2 it doesn’t feels like an own an old device now… I like Sony but this makes me wait for the Z5

  • xperiaDROID

    Fuck Sony Georgia, and fuck Vizileaks for saying this was the “Z3 Neo”. I won’t trust anymore of these bullshit leaksters, next time I’ll only trust @Upleaks, @Onleaks and @Evleaks.

    I’m kinda disappointed of how minor it has changed. If this has the same camera as the Z3, then sorry Sony, I’m going for Huawei or Samsung this time.

  • mountain

    I agree. Xperia Z3S, aka Xperia Z3 Selfie!

  • Carl-Johan Nilsson

    The best design choices of Z2 and Z3 combined. Hoping for a Europe announcement for early summer.

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    That aqua color wow… But to bad based on my current z3 white with silver coated frame that already wearing off i will go for black z4 this time.

  • jag

    so it’s gonna be the last?

  • any news about integrated wireless charging???

  • xperiaDROID

    Maybe the last one to have the Omnibalance design.

  • Shaktimaan

    Let’s hope, there’s an international version and it has better specs! !

  • xperiaDROID

    Most likely will, because so far there are no promo videos of the Z4 on their YouTube channel and even on their global website.

  • jag

    yup.. i’ve been searching everywhere but there are no official video or ads yet. Somehow I want to learn more about this z4.

  • suman sil

    can anyone tell something about the lollipop update for t2 ultra ????

  • jag

    Based on the concept phones that recently leaked? They do look good but I just hope they won’t announce the next iteration too soon (rumored IFA this coming september) or else they will waste z4’s life which is already dissapointing from the majority.

  • jag

    food porn got better! haha! It was just funny that it is the highlighted feature of the camera.

  • Marlish

    I switched to Samsung. Wait for a while and see how it is. then switch.
    not like you will like samsung or huawei :P

  • SopNaw

    Lol… But this is so bad… Thats the fuc**** ONLY reason for me why the Z4 is bad. The overheat of the S810 really bother me.

  • chris kwak

    No magnetic charging port! Smaller battery.. I’m glad they kept the dedicated camera button.. Still no need to upgrade my Z1.. Thank you Sony! ;P

  • Marlish

    As usual no changes.

    Might as well not release the phone.

    No wonder they released it quietly. They didn’t have much to say about the new phone.

    So much for the leaks hype.

  • Stephen Raharja

    Meanwhile, at another company…

  • Marlish

    Honestly :D

  • Marlish

    What the hell is Sony?

  • Sweggity

    It’s better to with Z2 and Z3 then upgrade to this. Wait for Z5

  • Marlish

    Well Xperia Z4 has a mode called cooking mode in order to take pictures of food. Never thought it would be able to actually cook xD xD

    Sony at it’s best.

  • kido

    April 20 = great disappointment day :( :(

  • Marinko Agic

    I think this is only for Japan,and for Europe will be Xperia Z3 Neo!

  • Timel

    Hahahahahaha I’m so pity Xperia fanboys now!
    Do you guys see? Sony Mobile is absolutely run out of idea , Sony Mobile is going bankrup LoL

    You guys should wake up and smell the coffee, Sony is dead, nowaday they can’t complete with Samsung and Apple at all

  • xperiaDROID

    When the Z3 was unveiled, I decided to wait for the Z4 because I thought it will be a major change from Z3. And now, looks like I wasted my time. Still rocking the good old Z.

  • Timel

    Yup, good luck man

    Sony sucks, there are better choices on the market such as Apple,
    Samsung, Xiaomi, Oppo and more

    Sony is the worst, worst camera in a smartphone world, no new cool innovation, no wow factor

  • Ryan

    Yes Timel they cant “complete” with Shitsung and Ishit…… U shd have spent ur money on learning language… rather than spending it on Shitsung and Maple

  • jag

    Go Timel! Go! Go home!

  • Timel

    Oh! don’t cry

  • Valerius

    This one doesn’t conjure up a big, fat WANT! in me. And that’s from somebody who had every piece of Z (including all tablets) since the original Z’s release. Fail.

    I’d like to see one of those concepts in reality.

  • John Kar

    You do know that’s a fan concept render, don’t yah?

  • jag

    same here! still rocking my Z ultra and still thinks it’s the best for me. but time to move on and i think Z4 aqua green is for me. No need to wait for z5 because it will just make you wait even more for the next iteration (z6 maybe) and so on.

  • Timel

    Wait the iPhone 6s or buy Galaxy S6 edge right now

    Goodbye Sony, you ran out of time already

  • Amel_Marie

    Wow I can’t believe they’re doing the sane thing to the 4th geberation of Z. So the Y and mono stuff are just hoax? Well im sure Sony will be left behind when people are looking for a flagship.

  • xperiaDROID

    Yeah, I would choose the aqua green too if I want the Z4.

  • Ryuga

    patiently awaiting Z5 with ma Z3

  • Timel

    that’s why Sony is going bankrup

  • Sony had better do a better job with the Z5, I won’t upgrade from my Z2 to an essentially same phone with inferior battery life.

  • Video of Z4 – https://youtu.be/bMdJQ8iuqs4
    It’s beautiful, but I’m really disappointed this time… Probably the rumors are true and we will have Z5 later this year but why Z4 now when they start a new Z3 campaign?

  • Timel

    I have no idea what’s in Sony’s head right now

  • Don’t forget that Sony is more than Sony Mobile!

  • jag

    Ooh.. 10 minutes and there still no overheating warning.. Impressive.

    https://youtu.be/i_NPG6_dFhY

  • chris kwak

    The only thing keeping me with Sony is the dedicated camera button (the ability to open camera with a button and tactile feedback when taking photos at strange angles when you can’t see the screen) it would be easy to jump ship if other manufacturers started including that on their flagships but for now Sony is (from a strictly usability aspect) the only true (android) camera phone. Being waterproof, amazing battery life and that clean style is just a bonus.

  • Similar situation here. The only thing keeping me with Sony is the DUALSHOCK 3 wireless connectivity.

  • hcm.

    Sony will never go bankrupt.. they are actually doing really good in the banking and insurance sectors.

  • Akand

    Sony could have kept us waiting without announcing this bullshit Z4. Now waiting doesn’t make sense anymore. Even if they announce any WOW device after 3-4 months, no one will buy it for sure because of this announcement. Now everyone who was waiting for Z4 will switch any other brand or something. And after 3-4 months almost everybody will have a new phone and won’t buy anything new even if it is a WOW bond phone in September. Again fail, Sony.

  • shhh

    Dude, Sony Georgia/Nodarsixar of Esato just compiles bullsh*t from the internet. Same goes with the new dude from Esato as well (xshopper and his bullsh*t blog), and the new twitter account @xperialeaks which just posted those leaks from the 2014 Sony hack.

    Only trust (still with a few ounces of salt) those you mentioned above and huiyi and XperiaJunkie from esato.

    As for the Z4 being suddenly announced in Japan without no proper hype marketing, I guess Sony themselves aren’t really looking forward to selling it as another big flagship. Most probably just a stopgap until the biggest flagship since Z1 comes in the 2nd half of the year. Hopefully.

  • Kadir

    New camera apps :D

  • Ritwij

    Yep Marie. We’re better off with our Z2 and Z3

  • A.o.D

    Those are new ‘Style Portrait’ and ‘AR Mask’ apps

  • J. Andrews

    Either Sony is joking around, or they purposely want go under, or everyone in their management team is senile or mentally retarded. I think it’s time they do with the phones what they already did with the computers and soon also will do with the TVs.. flush them.

  • xperiaDROID

    Oh great, new camera apps. Hurrayyyyyyyyyyy…no. -__-

  • Mokhtar Mouhib

    U r right .. U know i didnt want to upgrde to z3 from october cuz i was waiting for z4 .. Now its almost mai and before 2 months i switch to Nl930 .. I was still waiting for z4 and ready to buy it .. Now i think i Will Just go with z3 since There is same camera .. Same design the speed is almost the same ( who cares about 0.2 more faster ) Speakers are loud enough , and cheaper ..
    I said it before .. The end is near :)

  • Alwardy

    No need to rush in conclusion until now the announcement only in japan

  • J. Andrews

    You want a Z5? Scrape the logo of a Z1 and replace the 1 with a 5. That’s your phone!

  • xperiaDROID

    OMG, can you guys stop spamming this picture on every articles? This looks fake as shit, and nothing wrong with using the “Z” alphabet. It’s not like Sony invented the alphabet or something.

  • fluxx

    Wow, they stick to the Exmor sensor they introduced with the Z1 nearly two years ago (!). Meanwhile other companies like Huawei show innovative cameras with image stabilization and new sensors from… Sony. Does Sony still take the smartphone business seriously?

  • cacambo

    totally agree with you. Sony seems to take smartphone field grant without really upgrading your new products. sad

  • Amel_Marie

    Hahah i’ll stick with my z3 Ritwij ;-)

  • TimmY

    Meh. Guess I’ll change my Z3C next yearor the year after that.

  • jag
  • Akand

    Yes. But problem is that I am emotionally attracted by Sony. That’s why, it’s tough for me to give Sony up. But this time I shall just wait until the next announcement whether it’s Japan exclusive or worldwide. If this fucking Z4 is also international then I must give up.
    Apple: I hate.
    Samsung: S6 was gorgeous but no SD card and Touchwiz.
    Huawei: P8 is a good option but too expensive while lower brand value and UI without AppDrawer.
    Xiaomi: note available in Germany.
    HTC: don’t like the design because of huge bezel.
    LG: too big basically too wide.

    For me best option is Z2 i think. Almost same as Z4 but price is less than half. Better display.
    Here is another problem, I have started to dislike Sony.
    For the time being, angry on me because of wasting time for nothing.

  • Amel_Marie

    I think Sony is not an expert when it comes to mobile technology, maybe a collaboration will fix it. Like the old days with Erricson. They were top notch back then.

  • Sreekanth Namboothiri

    Again and Again Z2 proves he is the Best of Sony !

  • jokensy

    Well, I guess I’m gonna have to keep my Z2 for another year.

  • ?unsubscribe?

  • jag
  • David Hvatov

    Agree!

  • Akand

    Yes!! The end is near because they didn’t try to survive. Z3 is really a better option. Who cares about 64 bit processor while others are same and price is 1/2.

  • David Hvatov

    My Z2 does record 4K 15-18min.

    There is still HOPE!!

    “Sony is expected to unveil a different flagship device for the rest of the world and the official global announcement is likely to happen by the end of May, according to information from Russian tech blog Hi-Tech. ”

    http://www.phonearena.com/news/Sonys-Xperia-Z4-is-only-for-Japan-company-said-to-unveil-another-flagship-device-for-the-rest-of-the-world-at-the-end-of-May_id68433

  • jag

    oh.. i thought it only lasts about 5 minutes? hehe! sorry don’t have a z2 or z3

  • David Hvatov

    With latest firmware it handles 4K recording very well.

  • fluxx

    I have to correct myself a little bit. Following Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exmor they have switched from the IMX220 to a new version named IMX230. As this sensor offers a little bit more pixels on a little bit smaller (!) sensor I am really eager to see some real life pictures.

  • haxona

    Agreed!

  • jag

    Wow that’s good to hear that this is not a SOC limitation anymore.

  • A.o.D

    Nope they are not using IMX230 (21MP, 1/2.4), still with the IMX220 (20.7MP, 1/2.3)…wikipedia’s page is not updated

  • ZXcorr

    This is bad. They don’t need to release this. They should’ve gone with a new flagship this September. The one with fingerprint lock key.

  • 2930 mAh battery capacity?
    OEMS are crazy. Z2 had 3,200 mha..

    You move from z3 to z4 and the z4 has some 300 mha less than the z2?

    What at all is wrong with phone makers? They want us to charge our phones every 30 minutes or what?

    I just don’t get it. I’m not buying any flagship with less than 4,000 mha. Never. And I’m never buying any phone with less than that. LG, Sony, and Samsung and HTC, whoever comes with a more than 4k mha, then I’m in.

    I have my z2 now and all the big other OEMS are just annoying with their flagships, including Sony.

    It feels so stupid to me to gimme a phone with just a drop of battery juice.

    Forget about OS optimizations. Bigger battery juice NEVER harms anything or anyone. Its an added advantage, of which software optimazations can ride on.

    Big fail, +Sony Xperia?????

  • xperiaDROID

    Huawei low brand value? I don’t think so. Sony’s ranking in the smartphone vendor is way lower than Huawei.

  • TimmY

    What?

  • jag

    There is an international variant with some different specs maybe? I’m guessing the 2K screen variant.

  • Hahaha. Keep waiting, the z5 will come with same specs and design, except snapdragon 5000. Sony is so foolish I don’t know what to say

  • Akand

    No. Y and mono were designed for Bond phone, special case. And this Z4 is 4th generation. Same things are on the leaks. 4th generation picture was of this Z4 lemon green colour. But other convepts were for Bond. I may wait until bond movie release. If nothing happens, then NO MORE SONY. I am going to give Sony one more chance just only for my emotional love to them. But if they disappoint me that time again then I will sell all Sony products of my house.

  • Bloobat

    I would be surprise if this get’s a worldwide release, I think an updated version will launch with the 007 film later this year in markets other than Japan.

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    it’s just a waste of investing, they could’ve done better than this. why didn’t they make everything perfect and launch it in september or so

  • Timel

    True!

    I dont know what’s in Sony’s head right now

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    yeah, because i’ve searched everywhere on youtube finding for its official promo video, and can’t findit, even on SonyXperia channel. So there’s a hope for international version, but they’ll make it even better.

  • Team6

    I am a sony user since k700i, after that i got xperia x10, arc, s and after it I got the Z….since that I have been waiting for the REAL Xperia to come out because my old Z is living its final days.. laggy and shitty battery… now this??!!! Im waiting till the iphone 6s comes out and gotta leave sony once and for all!

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    I think that Y concept and more those are leaked for the last
    couple of days is just creations of Sony employees, I don’t think that’s
    true, but if the Y concept is really true, I’m so happy to be Sony’s
    fanboy..

  • Vuyo Ncube

    Japan-only model!!! Thank goodness. The international Z4 needs to be a big jump over the Z3. Beef up the battery, recalibrate the screen, slap on the IMX230 and throw in better speakers!

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    agreed!

  • Tangent Lin

    I bought a Z3 1 month ago

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    dont forget S820

  • Vuyo Ncube
  • Harshit Khanna

    I own a Z2 and I’m not the slightest bit jealous of or cringing for, the new phone…
    Highly disappointing, taking into consideration the critical situation Sony’s Handset division is…
    They need to up their game..

  • Kisgyerek

    When we get that official wallpaper?????? sooo awesome!

  • Sergio

    Nobody noticed the metal frame?
    “… while thoroughly draw out the texture of the metal by wrapping a metal frame that was carved from aluminum plate on the rear panel of tempered glass, it combines the strength.”
    And below says “Metal frame of again, polished metal, has been subjected to a treatment to increase the shine. The corner, by applying the two-layer process for superimposing a transparent resin on the colored resin, it is to difficult to lose brilliance and color even hurt to embezzle structure.”
    All of this translated from Japanese original article.

    Conclusion: Metal frame with resilent corners and tempered glass in the back.

  • Akand

    But you know whatever Xiaomi, Huawei, Oppo, ZTE do, they are still considered as chinese lower valued brand while each of them has fantastic devices.

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    I don’t think they will announce it globally in may, it is about 95% possiblity that ‘the next Z’ will be announced in IFA

  • inspire

    Sony Georgia/Nodarsixer is the biggest spammer in sony forums these days. (not to mention a thief as well, stealing info from other sources and tagging them with this bul***it blog). Same goes for this new xshopper (It seems they both are same).

  • Sergio

    They are already over there
    (Took from droidviews, look in Google for ‘Z4 tablet wallpapers’)

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    i thought you’re evil hahaha, but you’re not, you’re just a disappointed person that wants more from Sony and others.
    Now It is up to Sony, whatever they do, I just keep waiting patiently for what’s next, I’m disappointed with Sony right now, not just in mobile, but others too, especially in mobile, this year, they lacked some innovations, they need to work more.

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    he meant the mobile division

  • Akand

    I am going to wait until IFA, Berlin coming September.

  • jag

    I noticed them too.. It is still an upgrade of materials used from z3’s. And it does look more attractive than z3 IMHO.

  • jag

    don’t dream about it bro. this will come next year.

  • Rikimaru Azuma

    To me it’s really should be a Z3xxxx and not a Z4.
    I didn’t took Z3 because I was expecting get the curve censor on Z4.
    I want more than a new CPU…

    We need a new design, new camera,…

    But I think before get a real new phone.
    I would prefer see Sony develop a Huge update optimization for camera. To push better and longer our actual Xperia.

  • roeshak

    If you wait till then you might only get the z4 compact lol.

  • Ethan ‘blaze’ Parker

    Biggest flagship since Z1 what? Z2 was the most hyped flagship in the entire range.

  • Akand

    Sony has gone crazy. They don’t know what to do seeing Samsung S6. Maybe they wanted to take some more times to build something new but seeing S6’s popularity, they thought they’re loosing customers that’s why they just announce this shit harrily. But how fool they are!!! They didn’t announce the same shit at MWC, took time and eventually announce a shitt and finally are going to loose loyal fans as well.
    The current CEO (I can’t remember his fucking name) is a real rubbish who is completely responsible for death of Xperia and Sony Mobile division as well.

  • roeshak

    Indeed at this point if you’re going to go Sony, go with the z2. It’s very cheap now and has the best display Sony’s produced to date!

  • Doubleyoupee

    Meh.

    Why thinner, why not shorter to remove the huge bezels?
    Why no new camera?
    Why no new tech? Micro USB 3.0 type C?

    Good they stick with 1080p, though.

  • Kisgyerek

    Big thx!

  • shhh

    Z1 was the biggest leap from its predecessor. Z2 just has a better display, battery, audio, a much improved Z1/what the Z1 should had been.

  • shhh

    Why the mods there aren’t banning these guys when they are clearly using Esato to promote their own which is clearly spamming is beyond me. Then again, it seems the forum owner is not updating the website anymore and there only seems to be one active moderator. Their rumors thread is the only thing that’s keeping it alive.

  • Akand

    Yes. I will look for Z2. Z2 has only one problem, it combines the usb flap with another and made the flap too big to open everyday. I upgraded to Z2 from Z and returned it using 14 days only for this problem and bought Z1. But now this problem is considerable using magnetic cable.

  • 3rdflyleaf

    Sony just perfected the omnibalance Z. Now we wait for the new design of Z5. Haha ha ha

    Doesn’t seem like much of an upgrade but rather a refresh for potential new customers.

  • kasijof

    sony is done here,
    they recycle the same old design again again, nothing new, no idea, same technology big ol bezels, boring… i really think that someone deliberately driving sony to the bankruptcy, i cant believe that they are really that clueless, or if they are than i dont know what to say… lame

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    calm down my friend. The issue here is not whether Z4 will conquer S6 completely, although I think it does, the real issue that we are discussing is that Z4 should not be such a minor upgrade to Z3, we deserve more

  • Nodar Sixarulidze

    Yes

  • Kaz’s Ass

    I don’t see the bright future for Sony Mobile and Xperia brand at all, Maybe Sony should rethink about their smartmobile products line again. If I was Sony, I will left the Xperia brand and go for Walkman brand, because the first time when Sony walked in the mobile device and wearable device market they came with Walkman and it’s big success so now Sony should re-image the Walkman brand, Walkman should become the classy smart mobile device with the greatest sound quality

    – Walkman Z (futuristic-looking smartphone with the greatest sound quality)
    – Walkman Wrist (futuristic-looking smart watch or wrist phone with the greatest sound quality )
    – Walkman Lens (futuristic-looking smart glasses with the greatest sound quality)

  • Niels d. G.

    It’s no different for other brands though… Such as HTC, Samsung,..
    Sony actually hasn’t been using omnibalance that long, only since some time in 2013. Other brands having been holding on to the same design for much longer.

  • Mas.I

    pros:
    2x faster snapdragon 810 looks fascinating.
    still have great camera, battery and display
    cons:
    difficult to distinguish this from old gens
    adopting a new design language is needed.

  • Sridu

    After seeing so many concepts for Z4 on concept-phones.com, it is difficult to accept this phone as the Z4. I’ll wait for Z5 :). No wasting money on Samsung or Apple :).

  • Unknown

    i don’t see the reason why people complaining about this phone since this model is for japan. Wait end of may when they announce new phone globally and complain if it is the same

  • Is it Just me?

    Is it just me or does the Aqua Green looks more like a Baby blue?

  • kasijof

    yeah sony released twice as many devices bc of the half year cycle… htc and if you look up you can see that htc m9 already getting lot of flak because they have the third device in a row pretty much the same design this is sonys 5th

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    I partially agree with you here. I agree that the Walkman brand has more market potential than xperia brand, but I do not agree that sony should ditch its xperia brand entirely. If sony has the monetary power to ship out 2 premium devices each year (well it seems yes given their track record), then sony should fight the 2 lines and employ more people and deliever one Walkman phone and onw xperia phone each year. I believe they should utilize their asset, rather than put it to waste

    Ouch. Thanks for the correction, and even more disappointing :-(

  • sora77

    I think this is kind of Z3 Neo. They can give whatever name they want. The name Z3 Neo might not sell as well as Z4. They may have another one later this year. That’s why they just announced it quietly and only now in Japan as of now.

  • RoberMC

    So… you are tired of Sony because they are repeating themselves over and over again and you are going to buy an iPhone?, hahaha, yes, it makes all the sense.

  • Robson Kanyama

    Xperia Z2 was the only phone which looked different. I thought Sony would announce something better for the Z4 but it’s bullshit.

  • sora77

    P8 is even weaker than Z3.

  • Jaissal S

    The phone does look nice. I don’t understand why the battery capacity is less than my current Z1? If this is a Japan only phone…I will gladly wait for September for the real show that Sony will unveil to all. I am still yet to install Lollipop too. I wonder what the USP of the Z4 will be.

  • Prateek Bhanushali
  • marcy_ff2

    @swegger_dude:disqus,@rxperia:disqus I love sony and probably will buy the z4 tablet, but lets be honest there will most likely not be a z5. Why? because Sony has struggled to sell Z2 and Z3 which were major improvements over predecessors/competition. z5 is being downflat downrated due to lack of originality, I have read in so many tech sites people complaining about the just announced Z4 that it seems that is going to be a major flop(if it ever goes international).

    Samsung has also re-branded themselves in Japan to attract more customers, which will have an impact on sony as one of the biggest japanese handset producers.

    All in all it seems to be pointing towards the end of sony Xperia division which is actually very sad has they provided some nice new ideas into the market (Xperia Arc, Xperia Play, Z1,Z2,Z3, tablet Z2).

  • Dioq8i

    Im a Sony fan and im disappointed -_-

  • AnP

    Firstly, HATERS GONNA HATE! That said, I agree what we see here isn’t exactly mind blowing. If something works, don’t fix it, same theory applies very well to Omni balance design. They have only improvised, no matter how small over three generations of that design language. And for those who are claiming to switch to S6 or any other, please note it took literally more than 5 generations of “flagship” phones for Samsung to finally find itself remotely capable of industrial standard product design and quality, which again they openly copied the iPhone 6. Which by the way, Sony has always been at the forefront of. Anyway, currently this being Japan exclusive, let’s wait and see and how it performs with the competition and what other plans Sony has in store for the year ahead. Hope they are listening to their more loyal and reasonable fans.

  • roeshak

    Sorry but it’s pie in the sky stuff to think Sony’s going to announce something radically different from this internationally. Best case scenario, they announce this with a qhd panel.
    On the brighter side, you could say at least they can get this lane duck device out of the way early enough by June to give themselves enough time to work on a more worthwhile z5 in time for mwc next year.
    All those hoping for another flagship at ifa are dreaming! It takes many months to develop a new phone. You’ll probably get the z4 compact and z4 tablet compact at ifa.
    2015 is all about damage limitation for Sony mobile. They should have gone with the z3 neo tag instead but I suppose after having unveiled the z4 tablet, they had to go with this as the z4.
    For those of you hoping to see anything from any of the leaked concepts, the best you can hope for is mwc 2015.
    Sony better make sure this is priced at least £100 less than the s6 or it’ll flop like lame duck without wings!!!

  • Unknown

    only if you are in japan

  • phil g

    I’m a bit disappointed by similarities between The Z4 and the previous Xperia flagships. Hopefully towards the end of the year Sony will have a new flagship that will give me a reason to upgrade from the Z1c.

  • Keion London

    Nope, a no from me, hell no from me and no thanks sony. I am not a troll but I am just going to be hopeful that before the end of this year we will see something extraordinary.

  • roeshak

    Same cold pale very bluish display. Shame on Sony! Z2 still the best all round package they’ve ever produced lol!

  • Dioq8i

    Yea… And im not i just read from phone arena that there is anoter unveiling in may

  • Jaissal S

    Do people think that what ever Sony show in May will keep Omnibalance design or go for a new look?

  • Shehab Skull

    Hahaha nice joke Sony -_____________________-
    You have dfucked up my dreams!
    However I will buy the xperia z2

  • Dioq8i

    I know.. But i just read from phone arena that there is anoter unveiling in may

  • Paul Muad’Dib

    Don’t forget that 4 is a bad luck number in Japan, I think it’s related with death. That’s why the launch was so silent. There were rumours that Sony will jump over this name using 4.

    Anyway, the upgrade is poor but this means something good: Z3 prices will start to sink.

    I’m thinking about purchasing one Z3 after all.

  • Keion London

    Bro what difference do you expect with the Japanese version seriously. You’re speaking a month apart they gonna release a international phone with the same name “z4” that will be enormously better? I am like 1000% sure it’s the same shit. Reality is if you want something different wait for the z5 which should be out in time for the James Bond movie hopefully.

  • Dioq8i

    Guys i just read from phone arena that there is another unveiling in may for global release

  • Ritwij

    Every Z2/Z3 user will stick to their devices for now, I guess :D I’m happy with my Z2!

  • RealityCheck2015

    SEXY Phone :P

  • Rock Kickass

    Rumour has it that the market outside of Japan will be different and announced at the end of May. However, if this is the best Sony has to offer this year, then I’m afraid I’ll have to look for another flagship handset. I am very underwhelmed by this. So if the above is true then it better have a wow factor!

  • Keion London

    Dear sony fans, I honestly believe we are expecting too much from a company that had every intention of selling off their mobile division a few months back. We need to be open minded here and as much as i am very very upset at what they brought to the table……..again I will wait for the z5. By the way this bullshit about waiting till the end of May for the international version, trust me when I say if you don’t like the z4 you definitely would not consider the phone they plan on releasing, whatever the name. My money is on the z5.

  • T. Barlas B.

    Disappointed :/ i will be continue to use first z.

  • Billy de Fretes

    i’m gonna wait for next year :(

  • Keion London

    Wait a minute something just dawn on me, guys I’m being very naive here. We saw rumors a while back suggesting that there was a going to be a 1080p Japanese version and a QHD version for the US/International. Let’s hope these rumors were through, more for Sony’s sake than ours.

  • Brian De Guzman

    Why are people so shocked, we have had all leaks leading to this, the only thing that surprised me is it is named Z4, not Z3 Neo.

  • Keion London

    Not a matter of haters gonna hate sir. I have been following this company since the xperia neo and I can tell you the phone I was most impressed with the z4 however they have a reputation for disappointing customers when they demand something “new” to the table

  • Keion London

    Funny that we would hate on Timel time after time and maybe we should paid close attention to what he has been saying all this time……….even thought he is a annoyance to this blog and CAPTAIN TROLL. I must agree with you here Amel, the worst thing is to get accustom being disappointed.

  • jokensy

    OK, Calm down guys! According to PhoneArena, this version will ONLY be available in Japan! There is a different version which will be available globally by the end of May. Let’s cross fingers and hope for the best!

  • Dioq8i

    Im with you on that

  • Keion London

    Don’t forget xperiajunkie in esato’s forum lol

  • Kurniawan Agung

    I will wait till sony announce the xperia Z7 and we will see the difference sony makes.. Cause the Z5 is not enough to see a major different…..

  • Rock Kickass

    I hope you’re right. I hope that the Z4 or whatever name they release for the international market (outside Japan) is something similar to the renders we’ve seen in the Sony leaks.

  • Svnjay

    Looks like the S6 killer is here.

    This is bullshit. Waited with my z1 for this long… Those bezels are as huge as the Z1’s. No progress. I guess I’m gonna buy z3 compact now

    this is because, sony doesnt want to loose share in japan & want to be in competition with s6 in japan. & sony alwys do differ for japan.

  • Great Dude

    A lot of people hate iphone because of repeating a similar design.

    Samsung is hated because the same design on most of their phones (flagships or not) especially 2 years ago.

    HTC also take a lot of bad comments from users,blogs and sites because they use a similar design 3 years on a raw.

    Sony were using different designs in the old days like Xperia x10,ray,S,ion,Sola,SP and T all in which have different designs,but with the Xperia Z they stayed the same and this is the 5th installment (also remember that there is other Phones that look similar like Xperia M2,E4 in which also look similar so they become like samsung 2 years ago.

    They should changes that, I am not going to buy a Sony phone that look like my friends 2 years old smartphone.

    LG and Motorola are making phone cases in different styles, and that what it should be done.(letting smartphones more personel. as Android “together,not the same”

  • Niels d. G.

    Look at the puny little dock, they’ll probably charge $50 for the weightless little piece of plasic.

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    This is not logic at all! More powerful chipset, and lower battery capacity?!

  • Snorky112

    lower battery because it’s thinner, but the chipset is also more power efficient

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    I hope this is not an international version. I have a Z2, there’s no difference at all, by this specifications…except the chipset and thickness.

  • Great Dude

    Yeah I noticed that and also had read that before in the leaks,Still the similar design let us hate it,as others hated Samsung S4,S5 for being similar to all their other phones.
    We want an overall change of design,not just a small upgrade.

  • VictorMartino

    So Sony just made the battery smaller. This is a joke, right?

  • Great Dude

    Well,as I know The phones that are sold on Japan are the best and newest,that is why there is many phones we don’t know about and can see them only on Japan.
    However, I hope they make an SX Z4S on the international that has a better specs.

  • Yukio

    Stupid!!! What about PlayStation 4????? Sony change its name too?????

  • Snorky112

    customers dont ask for “new”, customers are stupid they just buy what they see on tv… iPhones and Samshit phones

  • Yukio

    I agree, Sony is fucking stupid

  • Hustlervanz
  • Great Dude

    I think there won’t be any lollipop update for any Xpera phone that is not in the Z-line as Sony did said that once.

  • Team6

    well its clear that you cant read!! the most thing I care about the phone is the smoothnes.. and all of these phones were laggy with shitty batterys…im talking the generations until Z … Use your brain if you have one!

  • Stephen Raharja

    Well, Tizen Z1 already in sale in India http://www.tizenphones.com/samsung-will-launch-cheap-tizen-phone-z1-in-india/

    And the Z2 will be released soon in the future (got the pic here) http://www.tizenexperts.com/2015/04/rumour-samsung-readying-z2-smartphone-and-also-global-tizen-smartphone/

    You can clearly see that Xperia’s omnibalance design is copied, and even the name z2 is used. Most people will agree that the design is a copy. Although that phone is a low budget, tizen OS based phone, so few people know about its existence

  • zuviel

    Still not seeing a reason to upgrade my Xperia Z1. The main thing I’m looking for is a substantially better camera – particularly for moving shots and low light conditions. Currently it’s looking like the iPhone 6S+ and Galaxy Note 5 are on track to use better Sony-made cameras than Sony’s own flagship.

  • charbel aoun

    And battery 3100 mAh vs 2930 mAh

  • TheImplication

    This is what I believe has happened:

    Panicked by what the other manufacturers have released (or are about to release) recently (Samsung, HTC, LG, Huawei), Sony decides to play it conservative and launch the Z4 for its domestic market Japan. It’s a ‘play it safe’ method’ to gauge the response before deciding whether to bring the device to the international market.

    This uniquely Japanese conservativeness will eventually kill off Sony Mobile division… it is only a matter of when.

    Sony can’t compete at the high end, it can’t compete at the low end and even its mid-range (M4 Aqua) isn’t doing well. All we got so far are Lollipop non-glossy icons, changing ‘Walkman’ to ‘Music’ and a couple of mid-range phones. Really Sony? It is almost May 2015.

    It’s such a shame that so much potential is going to waste.

    I think Sony is content with being a media company, a gaming company and an OEM company making hardware parts e.g. camera sensors. I really think Sony (or at least the CEO) thinks that the Xperia business line is non-essential and expendable.

  • Great Dude

    There won’t be huge changes.
    Probably only a 2k screen which is not that important upgrade nor the upgrade were most people wanted.

  • Great Dude

    unsubscribe

    as you wrote replying to other comments :P

    However it is probably not included since they didn’t announced it and didn’t read it on other sites

  • Great Dude

    There were rumors that it would be called Sony Xperia 3 neo, but nah they make it 4

  • iosvsios

    Partly a myth.

    Death = “shi” or “shin”, 4 = “shi” or “yon”

    So they’ll probably call it the “Zeddo yon” probably and not the “zeddo shi”

  • VictorMartino

    S6 is cool but has a ridiculously small battery and high price tag.

  • Great Dude

    This is an Xperiablog where most of Sony fans comes to here.
    They don’t hate Sony for particular but they hated the repeating design and they were expecting a better phone that does have an overwhelming upgrade.
    I have an Xperia phone and when I want to upgrade I want to upgrade to something new,not just seeing that I am using the same phone with different spec.
    These are disappointed fans ,they aren’t haters.
    And yeah I hope they listen to their loyal fans

  • Joel

    People on here are so quick to judge its actually funny. If this wasTHE 2015 international flagship device why would it be quietly announced and why only in Japan?? Think before you talk maybe they’ve got a different name for the actual flagship who knows but seriously all the negative comments and whining and moaning needs to stop and taken somewhere else. Period

  • Joel

    Lool good on ya mate unless its the edge version u pretty much went and got a copy

  • Great Dude

    Well, this is only a rumor ,however if it does came true ,then really shame on Samsung.
    And please don’t support nor spread rumors except if you have some link from Samsung or something officially announced.

  • Keion London

    More like fans sorry lol

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    Japanese market traditionally has a 6 month cycle on most of their products. One in Early dec and one in May.

    Hence Z4 is a need for sony to refresh the local demand.

    Lets wait for what Sony has for the international market

  • Sreekanth Namboothiri

    But the price difference between Z2 and Z3 doesn’t make any sense. Except i little bit slim profile and bit more speaker volume.

  • No crystal balls please. We don’t know anything until the phone is announced.

  • Great Dude

    I said that depending on an old rumor that said there will be 2 versions, one for Japan with FHD and the other Internationale 2K screen.
    Also how much change they could make until may
    Hope that the international does have more things to see.

  • Mahinthan So

    My ZR is working fine… May be Z5 compact. or Z7 compact…

    Still same design i cant wait more now going to get iphone 6

  • roeshak

    I can see it’s exactly the same stuff as on the z3 which I’ve tested extensively in person viewing all types of content.
    The video is more than enough. I can see exactly the same bluish hue!

  • Shaik Farooq

    I have to say those colours look really cool!

  • kevlo

    The z line is over and the Y line comes

  • roeshak

    How was the Z1 the biggest leap. It mainly was an upgraded cpu. The z2 brought with it a class leading ips lcd panel, stereo speakers, noise cancellation, 4k video, slow motion video etc etc. The z2 was the biggest jump from Sony. Everything since has been modest refinements in design and a downgrade in display quality.

  • kevlo

    For all User.. Its a Phone for Japan only and the z line is over AT the IFA starts the Y line!!

  • jag

    Well there are people who haven’t got the z2 or z3 yet (like me.. Still in Z ultra) and there are people who are still using the low to mid range phones who are thinking to buy a new flagship and there are other people who got bored with their brand and thinking to switch (to sony/ away from Sony).
    So yeah.. Z4 will still sell IMO. It’s not that ugly you know… It still is more beautiful than the z3 and much capable in terms of specs. And we still haven’t seen some (paid) reviews yet so let’s be still and wait some more time until it launches.

  • Kabuto Kouji

    ok.. but what is it with this phone that makes it so special and diffenrent from Z3 or Z2? whats the key feature????

  • Akand

    There is still a bit hope as this announcement wasn’t like a flagship announcement. It was announced only domestically. But the disappointment is the name. It has been named as Z4 which is theoretically Sony’s next flagship. However, I am still confused but hopeful as well that in the near future Sony is going to unveil another flagship which would be a bond phone. It might be limited but most likely to be happened.
    A few days ago I have read German tech site where they told Sony release Z5 on next Christmas. Today’s announcement is also indicating something like that Sony is staying on its 6 months cycle. So it may happen, Z5/Bond phone announcement in September and in December would be released.
    **A Hope of Hopeless just to keep the mind calm** ;-)

  • Kabuto Kouji

    hi dude, i own a Z and a Z2 and let me tell u, Z battery with 4.4.4 kitkat kikcs my Z2 lollipop updated battery ass man.. i dont see anything wrong with the Z. i think still rules dude!

  • The Z2 still is a good phone there isnt much difference between the Z2/Z3/Z4 spec wise. Also unless your in Japan you wouldn’t be able to get the Z4 anyway. Its not coming west. There is supposedly another Sony phone which will be announced at the end of May will be for the western territories.

  • jokensy

    Any new flagship phone is a reason to upgrade from a Z1 with its crappy display…

  • Mark

    At the end of the day, I believe Phone manufacturers should not release models unless they are substantial upgrades from the current version. It’s just us who are getting anxious and wanting to see something new; I believe this release in Japan is for the semi-annual phone release timing followed by all manufacturers to stay fresh with products. If Sony announced this version of Xperia Z4 with a bang, what would we all say? Disappointed that it was just a small upgrade? The design is too similar? So I think Sony was correct to release this relatively quietly. If anything, they could have called this the Z3s or something like that. We’re all complaining because we love Sony products and want them to succeed; and the way for Sony to succeed is to wait until a significant upgrade is available.

  • ?? ???

    I’ve got a Z3 but do think that the 810 64bit jump will be worth it.

    I’m disappointed as fuck with the camera though as I’d hoped to see the rumoured beast make it into the Z4..

  • Jaissal S

    I hope that you are right. I’ll be using my Z1 until the next gen Xperia Smartphone later this year. What if Sony show a global Xperia Y for example in May, the Japanese crowd wouldn’t be happy with not getting the new one right. So I’m guessing that we will see the Global Z4 version. It remains to be seen if it will differ to what we have seen today.

  • rubinaish

    No need to be rude. All the Z’s I’ve seen so far had good batteries, they last two days. Even though Sony didn’t augment the capacity with every new flagship, like other manufacturers do. And laggy? Sorry, but I can’t see no major lags in my original Z. Ok, here and there, it struggles a bit. But by own experience, I can tell you that an iPhone won’t change that. It may be smooth the first several months, but those handsets ain’t holy.

  • japolis

    most of the improvements are cause sony doesnt give it to z1, not cause its uncapable of. check xda for example

  • Niruz

    I totally agree with you xperiaDROID. I love Sony products and I am so disappointed after this news. If SONY come up with the same shit as Z3 which has no major improvements when compared to Z2 I will switch from SONY for any other brands.
    I am badly waiting for something good and highly improved edition of Xperia Z4.

  • Makiz

    I want this new live wallpaper!

  • Kaostheory

    The omnibalance is only 2yrs old. Comments make it sound like it was released with the PS3.

  • Team6

    look! I am a die hard Sony fan..everything in my appartment is from Sony..TV, earbuds, phones. I would change Sony for anything.
    I am a heavy phone user..and every phone I had before starting from the xperia x10, arc, S and finally the Z were great at the frist 3 months but then the old song started to play.. Battery dropped significally, laggs everyday..Camera is weired, somtimes it works like a charm, sometimes it lags and produces shitty photos.I cant say that about the newer Xperia Z1 Z2 or Z3….and regarding Iphone its the phone as an object but the OS.. android is the best but never as smooth as iOS… my brother has the Iphone 5 ..the same time I bought my xperia z.. now 2 and a half years later??? his phone is still smooth. Mine? call it a deadphone walking!

  • Snorky112

    yea and thebottom USB and the ugly magnetick charger is out, and the flap looks nicer, and everything else is surely improved, so yea it’s still better, if it comes to europe I’ll wait for heat test and if it’s ok I’ll buy it because it’s the best phone out there

  • Keion London

    Your first sentence sounds almost the same as what was mentioned by Sony’s new head of the mobile division

  • bilomar

    More like xperia z1.4

  • kevlo

    The Y line comes September
    And the z4 is globally the xperia z3neo :)

  • Jonathan Bratanata

    damn… i don’t care what anyone says, i’d buy the aqua green one if the international phone has the same color schemes.

  • Lunkz

    After the Z1 one, they suffer from innovations, the only reason why I changed from Z to Z1 is the Headphone Jack…

  • Kaostheory

    Where do people get this idea from? hTc has as many variants as Sony. The first one had the one x, the x+ and the butterfly. The M8 had the 6mo upgrade to the M8 eye and they still have the butterfly.

  • Lunkz

    Sure it has more potential, but they would shoot them self on the knee because of the Walkman Android thing…

  • spatch72

    I am due to upgrade my Z2 in May. I was waiting for the Z4 announcement, but now I think I’ll get the Z3, and be happy with my magnetic charging dock.

  • Kaostheory

    Another iPhone used I’ll get to laugh at! I get a real kick out of watching them use ziploc bags when we go riding, I can show off my remote play and my noise canceling ear buds. The noise canceling is one of the best new features. I’ll be enjoying my brighter screen while you’re looking at your dull one!

  • Kaostheory

    Spectre is set to release in November which would tie in with a September announcement of a new phone. Here’s hoping that with all the prototypes leaked that Mr Craig picked one for the movie!

  • Fynjy7771

    Of course there is no BIG difference in design with Z3, but all differences are in right direction: great and futuristic looking speakers from Z2 and no boring dot led (hopefully beautiful led strip from Z2 or something else, even more functional). Waiting for international version.

  • fried_egg

    did they miss the “normal launch window” for the z”even numbered” phones because of possible issues with the overheating 810 chipset or some other component in short supply? because the lack of “noise” on it’s release is very weird. does that mean a z(odd number) is still likely for the end of autumn in europe? and was this also why the american version of the z3 disappeared from sale… if a new z4 was going to be “launched” as soon as sony had the parts.. my z1 contract is up in august… so z4, if intl released, then or wait for a possible z5 in october.. ps really glad sony could hold back such a big “secret” and for so many “reliable sources” to be shown as utter b/s

  • Amel_Marie

    I know right? I hope the next Bond movie will drool me with new Z design.

  • Amel_Marie

    Dont be sad sir, lets hope for a better dedign, that’s all

  • Amel_Marie

    Im happy with my naked and smooth z3!

  • Epyon007

    Not really surprised by the news, maybe a bit disappointed by the name since the phone seems like a refresh of the Z3. Will wait until around September when new IPhone shows up and then make a decision based on what is coming out

  • Kaostheory

    Spectre is set to release in November which would tie in with a September announcement of a new phone. It would be weird for the Z4 to be a Bond phone since it’s not really different from the Z line.

  • jmaxim917

    Seriously, WTH is wrong with Sony? a processor and camera bump and they think people will rush out to buy the new Z4. What a way to kill a product.

  • Nguy?n T?n L?c

    That doesn’t mean battery performance will be worse, it’s all about optimization.

  • Ray Grant

    I was very excited about some of the preliminary designs posted a few days ago, and thinking “damn, I would love this phone instead of my Z3 Compact”. Now I can breathe a sigh of relief: there is absolutely no reason to upgrade. I had a Galaxy S3 before and it was THE WORST. Bricked itself a few months in, then never managed to — ooh complicated — play music without skipping or stopping for random reasons. My Z3 Compact is waterproof, has a SD card slot and simply does all I expect it to. Z4 is barely an upgrade — Apple would call it Z3s. When Z5 comes out with full metal body and fingerprint scanner, I’ll be buying.

    Unless you live in Japan, it is still the newest flagship by Sony. Not entirely sure why you didn’t wait since the rumours of impending Z4 launch have been flying around a lot lately.

  • AnP

    Yes, this particular design standard is becoming old, agreed. But I don’t see why people get so worked up as long as the design serves it right purpose unlike phones that curve and bend, have edge displays, which frankly I don’t see even an atom utility on a damn phone!!!

  • AnP

    It is not just about bringing something NEW to the table, it has to WORK! Original product design and development takes time, unless of course you decided openly copy iPhone 6 (and call it S6) or any other. Yes, it’s been 5 generations of this design but at what rate? Just been around 2 years because of their 6 month upgrade cycle, if not? So let’s not get so worked up and be unfair.

  • P9

    it’s time for my Z, such a big upgrade for me even speakers, no flap headphone, no flap usb, 8cores, 64bits, 5MP front, 20MP back, 32GB internal, camera bottom, battery….
    yes it’s may not nice move for Z2/Z3 er
    Z4 should really best upgrade for Z users actually.

    hope Sony still be with us, whatever and ever. <3

  • Ray Grant

    I can definitely recommend it. Forgot to mention in my previous post but with Lollipop upgrade (and cleaning cache) my Z3 compact had 66% battery after full day of pretty intense use (4G, wifi, etc.) This phone is crazy good.

    Why the Xperia Z4 makes perfect sense… for Japan

  • still beautiful

  • Mandal Bayar

    The Omnibalance design has to go, it looks pretty but is a pain to hold. Change it with something more ergonomical.

    Even though Sony’s skin is minimal they take ages to send out updates. They need to either sort that out or do what everyone’s been asking nearly every android manufacturer to do… release their phones with stock android. I know that skinning is a way to differentiate the phones from the rest of the pack but since no one else except Motorola and Google are releasing phones with stock android it would still be unique.

    The camera algorithm needs to be improved, I don’t understand why other OEMs using Sony sensors are delivering a better camera experience than Sony themselves, like instead of having a bunch of Swedish developers from Ericsson writing that software get your Cybershot guys in Japan to do it, One Sony.

    Displays also need to be better, Sony owns a part of JDI so maybe they can leverage that to bring OLED screens to the Xperias while at the same time resisting the urge to compete with other OEMs in the ridiculous pixel wars. Battery life trumps pixel density on phone displays.

    Another suggestion would be to get that sweet DAC from the premium Walkman into the Xperias. That would really be a way to differentiate Xperias instead of needlessly skinning the OS.

    Well it seems you can’t read what you write, which is worst haha. You said YOUR Z is laggy and has shitty battery, good for you, but this has nothing to do with Z4. Latest Z3 almost doubles battery life of the iPhone, and is just as smooth, and it is to be expected that Z4 will improve over that so… what are you trying to say?, do you think your Z = Z4?, lol

  • Yasir Fawad

    Leave your decision undecided to the end of May. This is not Z4 for the global market, A very improved Z4 is likely to be
    introduced for the international market in May, with a different
    design (not confirm), qhd screen/1080 (two versions), 4 gb ram, an improved sensor,
    slim chasis, and some UI changes.(not a complete overhaul)
    Best of luck.

    I disagree, that will make people confused.

    The Xperia division should merge into the Walkman division, the engineers of thses two divisions have to work together for create the new powerful smart mobile device

    Walkman know as mobile/wearable devices, Walkman know as quality, Walkman is Sony’s DNA but Walkman must adjust to the realities of today, Walkman must become the high tech communication mobile brand, not just a music player brand like the past

  • Geese Howard

    Dude, just let him be. Another BS motherfucker who runs his mouth because of trivial things. Every fucking company out there repeats it’s itself, just look at his favorite iPhone… it’s the same old ‘shit’ if you ask me. Why bother? Apple ever only had was Steve Job’s and now that he is gone they’re jackshit. No more breakthrough if you ask me and the Apple has already gone sour.

    The Z4 is a great upgrade from a Z (or anything older). Any user who still has the Z2-Z3 I think should keep and wait, those 2 are good phones already. I don’t think the Z4 is meant to be a a major breakthrough, just an upgrade – an option. Again we’ve been so spoiled by these high-tech gadgets we always ‘expect’ a major breakthrough. So when something doesn’t live up to the ‘Iron Man type’ quality, people run their mouth with shit. Ironic isn’t it? Welcome to the 21st Century.

    And for an upgrade, the Z4 is a good choice.

    Z4 could be the last nail in Sony Mobile’s coffin.

  • AcceptJesus

    Hope this is a late April Fools prank

  • Tangent Lin

    I live in Malaysia. Reason why I bought it 1 month ago:
    1. Not sure the announce date – May be September 2015 release and arrival time may take one to two month to reach Malaysia normally
    2. Use Snapdragon 810 – Heat issue (not sure)
    3. Previously using Xperia TX, too laggy
    4. Our country starts GST of 6% including smartphone on 1 April 2015
    5. Xperia Z3 price drop
    Even though saw the spec of Z4, still no regret. If camera sensor improve on Z4, maybe.

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    What no one here seems to talk about is that this device was released IN JAPAN, FOR JAPAN. There weren’t any invites sent out, no teaser trailers. It wasn’t on some big stage like CES or MWC, it was a small announcement.

    Why release it anyway? Simple, SAMSUNG. The S6 goes is going to be on sale soon from the Japanese phone carriers, and love Samsung or not they have certainly gained a lot of attention with their S6’s. All Sony is trying to do with the Z4 is to try and grab the attention back on themselves. Samsung has a small presence in Japan compared to Sony and the biggest OEM, Apple. It makes sense that Sony would try to grab attention from the S6 with the Z4, and then throw out a true flagship with better hardware, better software and a new design to battle against Apple’s iPhone 6S.

    Many think the Z4 is Sony’s next flagship and it isn’t that much better than the Z3, and that’s true. But let’s not forget that Sony can easily release another flagship the same year. They’ve done that with the Z to Z1, and Z2 to Z3.

  • hmmm

    how can you put 4 phones on the market with the same stupid camera????this is worst than apple.shame on you sony. I hope you vanish from mobile market,as you’re to stupid to make money and take advantage of your fans!!! F A I L

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    The Z4 isn’t a true flagship, there was no invites sent out, there was no teaser trailers. For all we know Kaz might not have even there. This is clearly a Z3 refresh and Sony treated the device and event as such

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    FINALLY! Some who realizes that the Z4 is mainly for Japan. Whole the rest of the world prefers a flagship once a year, the Japanese prefer twice a year. The Z4 is just to take some of the attention away from the S6

  • grav1ty

    It looks like Xperia Z, oh i mean Z1.. damn sorry i mean Z2.. ups sorry, of course it looks like Z3..
    eeh, wait… It’s Z4!!!!
    Damn, what a fresh design, what an upgrade…

  • Kristo

    I love the design! I don’t see why people want another one.

  • Kristo

    It’s funny because Samsung’s new phone is called S6 Edge

  • Kristo

    No, I don’t think they will go with Y. They have had V and Z, but Y doesn’t sound catchy enough

  • InspectorGadget80

    Or the Ultra Z2. But I need to upgrade my Z1

  • Epyon007

    It’s become repetitive though. Would like to see something different. It also doesn’t help that they release a new one every 6 months. That makes it look even more stale because we are in 4th Gen and it’s still the same basic design

  • RbbrDcky

    I get that a lot of you on here are disappointed in the seemingly marginal upgrade but there was no way that the Z3 could compete with the S6. The Z4, on the other hand, now we’re talking! They are now matched in power and performance but with significantly better battery life, water-resistance with no cap, stereo speakers, SD card memory expansion, and that oh-so-pretty aqua color, has it not now outclassed the S6??

  • Mark

    I wonder if Xperia Z5 will actually go with the leaked “tube” design as seen in Sony’s Playstation Vita TV… They have a similar form factor.

    It is 2 years old but it is used a lot:
    Xperia Z – Z1 -Z2 – Z3 – Z4 – Z1 Compact – Z3 compact – Z Ultra – ZL- ZR – C – T2 ULTRA – T3 – M2- M2 aqua – E3
    Although Xperia E – E1- E4 – M – L – SP -C3 Don’t look Omnibalance to me,their are similarities for sure.
    AS you can see it has been used a lot (unlike 1 time for PS3) and we hope for a new design to come as we look everyday at our phones when we use them while we don’t look to the PS3 except when we open,close and change the disk and we don’t use PS3 everyday.

  • Great Dude

    One main reason why people choose Sony over other manufactures is the authentic looks and beauty of their designs.
    that is why we don’t like to see a repeated design.
    And if the design weren’t making its functional purpose,then the dissapointment would increase a lot and will turn to hating.
    Remember how Xperia X10 – Ray – Arc – neo – walkman – Sola – Ion -S- Sp – T all look different. We have seen Sony using many designs that is why we hope they start to do similar changes again,maybe not as much as before, but more than now where all there phones are either Omnibalance or similar to it

  • Andy Roid

    LOL, looks exactly the same as my Z1 from back in the day. Sony should just give up and bow out of the mobile phone business, like they did with bravia tvs and vaio laptops

    Depends how you look at it. With the low number of sales there’s not a lot around. Definitely not as boring as an iPhone. Anyway I would agree that it would look weird for a Bond phone, Spectre is due out in November, therfore kinda expecting that Mr. Craig might have chosen one of the prototypes for a September announcement. Hate to nitpick but there’s 2 ps3s and a couple of limited edition.

  • Ed231

  • Timel

    I hopefully the international version of the Xperia Z4 will come with these things

    Hardware:

    – Improve the camera processing algorithm

    – OIS

    – Built- in the great DAC

    – Full HD JOLED Display

    – 40000 mAh battery

    – Fingerprint scanner embedded in the side-fitted power button

    Software:

    – Redesign the Xperia UI and more transparent effect (paper-like material design looks very cheap and it doesn’t deserve the classy design of Xperia flagship phones at all)

    – System and setting icons, App icons, they’re all should be ” CIRCLE ”

    – User can swipe the small apps bar out from the right edge whenever want to use, no more the small apps bar in the recent apps screen

    – Split screens feature

    – Remove search bar from the recent apps screen

    – Air gestures control

    – Support WAV, DSD

    – Support LDAC technology

  • jag

    Others here are wishing for the most futuristic thing out of sony. They’ve already seen and heard about the rumors wherein most are spot on and yet they still whine about it in the official announcement.

    Z4 is the perfected z3. It does look 100x more elegant and premium and beautiful than z3 and the specs are far better too. If you are in Z2 or Z3, then skip this year. If you are in the Z, ZR, ZL or even Z1 perhaps, then it is already a big damn upgrade.

  • jag

    iphone 4s is same with 4 and yet they adore it.
    iphone 5s is an iphone 5 with a fingerprint scanner and the whole world goes tumbling for it.
    maybe iphone 6s will be just the same also as the 6 now.
    z4 got almost the same design concept with z3 but better materials on it, thinner with less flaps but waterproof but then the people started to spread hate about it.

    I don’t get the logic.

  • Not likely as you can change to most languages on z4 demo models.

  • aseuss

    Why not just call the Xperia Z4 the Playstation Phone in the U.S.? Almost no one knows the Xperia name in the U.S., but boy do they know the Playstation brand name. So, use it, Sony. Just keep building up more Playstation gaming features in the Xperia line, and call it the Playstation Phone. Sure, it’ll be niche but Xperia is less than niche in the U.S. (and just a tiny niche elsewhere). I think this is what Sony needs to do to keep Xperia alive. There are millions of Playstation fans who would be natural PS Phone users.

  • aseuss

    I agree. I like the Playstation name too, but Walkman could be better. A great phone with premium audio: Walkman Phone. Xperia Z3 already has hi-res audio, by the way, so they could already call it the Walkman phone without having to improve it. You need to call Sony’s marketing department and tell them you have a plan for doubling sales: Introducing Walkman Phone. From Sony.

  • aseuss

    Sony, the way to revive the Xperia line is to simply rename it. Playstation Phone or Walkman phone. Personally, I’d prefer a Playstation phone that uses the same black metallic design of the PS4 console. You already have tens of millions of Playstation fans that will at least give it a look. Xperia? No one’s even heard of that name in the U.S.

    As a proud owner who is still using the Xperia T, I know well how much the phone’s design stands out of the crowd. But let’s consider the facts, the omnibalance design has been in use for around 2years where in they went with a 6month release cycle which obviously made it look repetitive. And back in those days, Sony used plastic which gave them the freedom to experiment different shapes. With omni balance we are looking at metal and glass, materials which unfortunately don’t give room for too much experimentation. HTC went with all metal body and their last three iterations haven’t really grown far apart in their looks, it’s just plain improvisation.

  • imparanoic
  • Chan Kin Cheung

    “The camera also has a “cooking mode” feature that supposedly helps make shots of food look more appealing.”
    This is really useful stuff from Z4

  • Trust me, the international version comes with the list of specs you outline above, I’ll just say this:

    Sony, welcome Home! I’m In!

  • Great Dude

    “materials which unfortunately don’t give room for too much experimentation.” a very good point, I didn’t thought of it like that.
    Also as @disqus_15OU1EAOIi:disqus said they are not gaining a lot of money from mobile devision.
    That make me feel not so angry at Sony,but still hope for new great design from them.

  • Ethan ‘blaze’ Parker

    You forgot RAM, features like tap to wake, answering machine, noise cancellation and a more mature software.

    Z2 was a bigger leap from Z1 than Z1 was from Z to be honest. There was only a chip and design upgrade from Z. And Z2 was the first device in Z series to grab a major worldwide media recognition.

  • Great Dude

    Yeah ,maybe we should see the other side a little bit before we get angry ,also as @AnP87:disqus said the premium materials aren’t plastic which can be changed to a lot of shapes easily.In the new Bond movie if he hold for the same Z4 design then people won’t know exactly which phone it is ,since they are similar and since he won’t hold the phone for too long in front of camera.Except if they want to let all owners of Z series proud of their phone :D

  • Oh was the lighting condition the same too? And the camera that was used to filmed this video?

  • kido

    International version doesnt need ois, i assure you that sony’s image software is stable enough, and no one wants a camera that sticks out like the s6… And also air gesture is a waste of time, no one uses it on a daily basis…a fingerprint sensor would be welcome. And also a new camera sensor and better software algorithms for the camera… A brighter flash would be welcome, or even a zenon flash…

  • Pingback: ???????? Sony ?????????? ??????????? Xperia Z4 ? ?????? | IT-Info()

    A lot of the rumours about what Sony is intending to do this year have stemmed from the host of emails that were made public following the hack on Sony. In January they would have been better off outlining exactly what their strategy was for their mobile phone division for the forthcoming year. By keeping silent they have simply become a hostage to fortune to the rumour mill. Tech sites thrive on leaks and rumours most of which turn out to be groundless. These rumors build up expectations though and when they are not fulfilled, Sony gets it in the neck from its customers. Some might consider this unfair but Sony needs to shoulder its share of the blame too. When pictures of the Z4 were frist released they should have made a statement that yes this was the Z4 but its only being issued in Japan (and perhaps a more limited release internatationally) and this is what we are planning to do next.

    I think whatever happens this could spell the end of the Z series, whether this means that Sony mobile will be sold off or they are planning a new high end series to replace it is anybody’s guess and its this uncertainty that is so damaging to Sony at the moment.

    Everyone knows Samsung will release the Note 5 and Apple, the Iphone 6s, in September, time for Sony to do likewise, broadcast its intentions and kill the rumour mill.

    Personally, I think my Z satisfies my needs and I don’t experience what you’re describing.
    I don’t think that the battery on iPhones is better.
    Concerning the lags… I think that’s subjective. When using other people’s phones, they always feel smoother. I don’t know how often you use your brother’s one, but my theory is: By the time you use your phone, your brain reminds how the different actions look like. You think faster, there’s nothing new/unexperienced anymore. It’s like going on holiday by car: the return seems to take longer, since you remembered parts of the way when you first went there.

  • Timel

    please stop trying to defend for Sony, how dare you said that just Sony’s image software is stable enough?? That’s absolutely bullshit. The OIS is very important than you thought.

    Air gesture control helps me a lot when my hands are full or very dirty.
    Everytime when I used this feature I feel like wow! my phone is very smart LOL

  • Slave4Sony

    It means no more Sony Mobile? Or no more Xperia brand? Or No more the Z series?

    Whatever but I don’t understand why Apple and Google can effectively run their whole company by without splitting any division as a separate unit like Sony did and One of the big problem about Sony/Kazuo Hirai was that he built a corporate structure at. Sony that didn’t allow for enough collaboration. Divisions were just that divisions and he couldn’t see the value of allowing them to work together more efficiently and creatively, that’s why OneSony plan will never truly happen or hard to happen. so Sony needs to change their old vision and their old tradition, seriously and quickly!

    I think these Sony’s subsidiaries including Sony Mobile, Sony Computer Entertainment, Sony Visual Products, Sony Creative Software, Sony Network Entertainmentand they’re all supposed to merge into Sony Corpration, become one company, a devices and services company.

    You clearly haven’t used Z2 or Z3. When recording video, the electronic image stabilizer in Z2 & Z3 is waaaaaay better than iPhone 6’s OIS.

    Here’s Z2 vs S5 stabilization test :

    https://youtu.be/lXf6moWyfFE?t=242

    And in fact, the image stabilization in Z2 and Z3 are one of the best in market, and also possibly the best digital stabilization ever made for smartphone.

    I’m not blindly defending Sony, yes, their camera somehow suck but I personally know someone who uses Z3 for video shooting because of the stabilization.

    3. New design
    4. Better notification than this ugly “dot”
    5. Biger battery than Z2, it disappoints me to switch to something “new” which is worse / less…

    If not I will wait for Z5, if they do not deliver I am done with Sony.

    Sorry… they will not get my money this time.

    There are good things : removing the magnetic charger and usb port direct access. Hopefully there is wireless charging now.
