NTT docomo announces Xperia A4 alongside Xperia Z4, Z4 Tablet

Xperia A2_1Japanese operator NTT docomo has announced its Summer 2015 line-up and just as we expected, it has launched three models: the Xperia Z4 (SO-03G), Xperia Z4 Tablet (SO-05G) and a new model, the Xperia A4 (SO-04G).

The Sony Xperia A4 is basically a revamped Xperia Z3 Compact and will launch in mid-June 2015 in four colours (black, blue, pink and white). The Xperia Z4 for NTT docomo is also expected to launch at the same time, whilst the Xperia Z4 Tablet is slated for an end-of-July 2015 release.

Specs for the Xperia A4 include a 4.6-inch 720p display; 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset (MSM8974AC), 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, 20.7MP camera, 2.2MP front camera, IP65/68 certification for dust/water resistance and a 2600mAh battery. Interestingly, the promotional materials suggest the Xperia A4 has a ‘three-day battery’. This is up from the ‘two-day battery’ found on the Xperia Z3 Compact, despite sharing the same specs.

    3 day battery and blue color… im going to japan now. haha

  • Tony Lam

    3days? Seriously?

  • Kurt Kobaine

    where did u get 3 days?

  • Xadiq

    Take me with you. it feels like forever since I last saw a blue Sony phone.

  • shhh

    Why does Japan get it late? And how the hell does it get a 3-day battery life with the same specs???

  • Kiwison

    Blue one is perfect

  • BTW, NTT DoCoMo changed their name to lower?case (NTT docomo) in 2010…

  • Akash Naik

    Soooooooo Nice.Love You sony.

  • Ørjan Laxaa

    Sooo it’s a Z3 compact, then? Did it ever release in japan originally?

  • Kamil1308

    Smaller screen

  • Kurt Kobaine

    screen is still the same

  • Nodar Sixarulidze
  • Brian De Guzman

    I highly doubt it will last 3 days with my normal use – I never use stamina mode and I always have data on. My handset is a Z3 that is advertised as 2 days battery but with my type of usage it gets me through the whole day without charge (still better and crashes its competition)

    Now I wonder how long will this device advertised as 3 days with my usage, it should be enough to get me through a day and a half without charge! Awesome Sony!

  • May Czos

    It is Z Comact without translucent plastic on the sies. Japanese market is different, there are separate models just for operators, off-contract market is very limited, some operators have monopoly for some devices etc.

  • ChilliPSco

    3 day battery life, nice. Since updating to Lollipop on my Z1, the battery performance has been woeful. Lost 5% of battery life just updating 1 app last night.

  • Kunal Shukla

    the LED flash on these devices is comparatively bigger than other xperias

  • ryq24

    Like the Z4 this phone should remain in Japan.

  • bushmisfite

    A way to very Easy with xperiablog < my classmate's step-aunt makes $72 hourly on the laptop . She has been fired for 7 months but last month her payment was $17104 just working on the laptop for a few hours..

  • Franciscus Michael Panggabean

    It is. Just like the A2 last year. These were made for the condition of Japanese market, where you need to release a new phone every 6 months.

  • plekenut

    Dat blue!

  • Franciscus Michael Panggabean

    Japan got z3 compact. This is just their summer 2015 phone, where the z3 compact was their winter 2014 phone.

    With Yahoo Facebook Google and xperiablog …….. — —->Here’s A INFO< <<<<

  • Sreekanth Namboothiri

    First they announced Z3 Compact with 2 days battery life. Later found its capable of more 3 days battery life after GSMarena review :) . Now they made another model with same spec instead of changing the caption :D lol

  • Mokhtar Mouhib

    it’s exactly the Z3c , why u are wasting your money sony !! except the 3 days B.L

  • goldenblls

    3 days battery life deserves a trophy.

  • I hope the next gen Compact won’t have 720p, a 4.5 inch 1080p screen would be a killer. Granted it’ll cost some performance and battery but it’s better than seeing pixels when you look closely/use VR.

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    Throw that 3 day battery life on their next 5.2 inch, Compact and Ultra flagship and you got a winner

  • HAWX

    5″ no bezzel 1 day heavy usage battery with HR audio and good cameras would be the best. But that’s dream for now.
    Btw 1080p for 4.5 is basically overkill.

  • iia3ezu

    Not even a SD 808? In 2015?

  • HAWX

    Anything diffrent than shitty 810 it’s OK for me and most people. And A4 has 720p display so it has an another advantage for performance.

  • HAWX

    Kamil misin la ayn? XD

  • Timel

    Those are all Sony has?… No wonder why Sony is dying, Sony failures to innovate, Sony flagship smartphones are always lack of innovation and marketing

    Now it’s clear that Sony can not win Apple and Samsung or even Chinese brands like Meizu, Xiaomi, ZTE at all

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    Ah, we all missed you in the last week. Please start with your garbage, we need some nonsense to read

  • gamer324

    Is the A4 all plastic ? Frame and back? Or did Sony upgrade the frame to metal and downgrade the back to plastic?

  • bilomar

    I’m going to use my z3 for a long time, I’m not buying a smartphone every 1-2 years. I always had Sony (Ericsson) phones. So my next phone maybe will be something different. Except they bring something new till then.

  • New promo video for xperia z4 tablet …

  • Vuyo Ncube

    The unintentional court jester is back!

  • Andre Lemard

    You hate Sony phones, yet you’re on a Sony blog. The logic is unfathomable.

  • Timel

    At least the cheap chinese phone like ZTE Nubia Z9 is much cooler than the Z4

    Sony flagship phones have no wow factor

  • Timel

    Blue Topaz S6 Edge and Emerald green S6 Edge they’re so cool and super beautiful!!!!

    Sony phones are boring now

  • jayjay

    Lol get out

  • Melfes Wired

    this is just another Z3C, not even as good-looking as A2… at least A2 has a metal frame…

  • Total

    as Madonna would say, if you follow everything Sony does, ***** you’re a fan!

  • vigneshprince

    wow! my fav color blue color. hope it will come to future flagships

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    200 g weight – WOW

    No Bezels and I will be scratching the screen all the times – WOW

    Non-removable battery 2900 – WOW and a WOW

    sd810 with Top speed Quad-core 2GHz – WOW revolutionary

    No water proof – What a WOW

    Only thing I like in this is the surround sound

    Not a big fan of the finger print scanner, Hav an Ipad and it takes forever to figure out my finger.
    Happy with my pin as i use encryption for my z1

  • Goodbye Walkman
    Live on my Z2

  • H-R-K

    Sony is Always late in the party? where is international model of z4? What actually they are doing? Every brand declared their flagship device but Sony is still struggling to make their flagship.

  • Tirth Langaliya

    Hoping for Sony Xperia L series L1, L2, and so on.

  • Shubham

    No glass back? 3days better life.. amazed! blue and peach welcome to the family!

  • Mokhtar Mouhib

    Same here .. I Will upgrade to z3 i was waiting for z4 since october but i dont see anything That makes me put a 400/350 dollars more ..

  • Rikimaru Azuma

    At leat this past years Sony bring more innovation than other. Then it’s not fair to critic them, you cannot innovate every years… And latest Samsung bring no more innovation than Sony, excepted take out SD card and waterproof ?…

  • Emmanuel Guerra

  • Akand

    You’re right in some ways. But S6 doesn’t look unique to me. S6 edge has only unique feature: curved display.
    Yes, Sony seems boring now. But still it is the best and most elegant phone to me. Japan exclusive Z4 with more polished and shiny look looks awesome. If you forget Z-Z3 and compare just between Z4 and S6, I am pretty sure that more than 70% vote will go to Z4.
    Actually problem is that Sony gave you some best little earlier.
    However, I think Sony should stick with this design for this year also. Because S6 grabbed most of the buyers. But next year they should show something WOW earlier than S7 or at the same time.
    N.B: I don’t want Fingerprint sensor or Retina scanner in any Xperia as they are my unique bio-security and I am not willing to handle them just to protect a 500-600€ device.

  • Svnjay

    Lol, you’re so delusional.

  • Svnjay

    The Z3 beats your S6 in battery life.

  • gunboat_d

    ugh, that blue! my penis can only get so erect.

  • I wonder where ZTE got their design inspiration from…

  • to be fair, at least Sony doesn’t dress up their CEO to look like a certain CEO on their announcement day. What was that innovation and marketing you were talking about?

  • Timel

    Emerald green S6 Edge is really beautiful, classy and unique, I love it So much, Samsung really did the great job with their S6 Edge, Omg I want the Emerald green S6 Edge so bad!!!!! but…. Samsung UI is still fugly and because I still have hope with the Xperia Z5

    So I’ll give Sony just one more chance… Yeah I’ll wait until the Xperia Z5 , that’s the last chance of Sony Xperia for me

  • apolloa

    I think that looks a lot better than the Z3 Compact. Very nice. Looks more classy.

  • phil

    why sony can’t make skin color also applies to the front panel, only achieved for white and black. anyway how do they squeeze 3 days, from the same battery amount as z3c?

  • Andre Teo

    And dual sim?????

  • Snorky112

    z3c can last 3 days too, even more if you don’t use it so much

  • Snorky112

    sony doesnt have to announce a flagship because other do, Z3 came out at he same time as iphon 6, where is apple new flagship?

  • Snorky112

    lol z3 came out in october and you where already waiting for z4 ? :/

  • Snorky112

    801 and 808 are technically same chip, just few minor changes for marketing, so yea useless to have a 808…

  • Snorky112

    1080p for 4.5 is pointless imo

  • Snorky112

    its the same as z3 compact…

  • Andrea

    blu is fantastic!!!

  • Svnjay

    More like Samsung copied Apple and Sony with the S6 Edge. The ports on the S6 doesn’t even align

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    This is beautiful, even if it’s plastic, especially the blue one, I like that.

    But I’m still waiting for Z3 Neo, Z3+, Z4, Z3 X, Z5, Z4 Neo, Z4 International, Z4i, or whatever they call it, hope they don’t disappoint us, especially me. I’m looking forward for that to come, but what make them so long like that, just announce the damn phone and everybody (if the phone is good) will be happy!
    P.s blue topaz S6 is amazing (only in design, though), I praise samsung for what they have done this year with S6, but I still just want to give Sony one more chance now. So If the phone is bad.. I’m sorry, Sony.

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    you’re right, mate.
    the emerald green and blue topaz colours on S6/S6 edge is so beautiful and classy. I like that so much, but I still hate samsung for it’s UI and I still think the next Z will be better in some ways, and the price for S6 and especially S6 edge are disgusting.

    Me too, I will give Sony one last chance for that latest flagship

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    I think that the colour on S6 series are just one of the things that impresses me, and that curved display on S6 edge is so lame, I think. they charged 300$ more than S6 in my country for S6 edge, which was a plain bullsh*t for me.

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    did you mean “bring that 3-day battery life on….”?

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    that 3-day battery life? is that a typo or something? hahaha I don’t believe this. Good job, Sony!

  • I wish M4 Aqua came in a blue color scheme. That would really be Aquatik ! :P

    Does that blue remind anyone of vintage Sony Walkmans? Gardians of the Galaxy anyone? Sony needs to cash in on their long history of brilliant devices and get more retro feels going.

  • Mokhtar Mouhib

    Yes u dont need to be smart to understand… Cuz That time z3 was like z2 and my z2 was like new Just bought it in summer )) .. So There was no need to upgrade and i was waiting for Z4 )) Go troll somewhere else

    for the colours, I like Xperia Z4’s version of Copper and Aqua Green, especially the Copper, that is better than any colour of a phone in this world, but Aqua Green is also great, but I like Copper More..

    so my rank for best colours of a phone is
    1. Xperia Z4’s Copper
    2. Galaxy S6’s Blue Topaz
    3. Xperia Z4’s Aqua Green
    4. Galaxy S6 Edge’s Emerald Green
    5. Xperia Z3’s Copper
    6. Xperia Z3’s Silver Green
    7. iPhone 6’s Space Grey
    8. Xperia A4’s Blue
    9. iPhone 6’s Gold
    10. One M9’s Gold

    Hi, does anybody know where I can get the A4? It’s honestly the phone I want most, I’m obsessed with the blue. But alas, I can’t find anywhere to buy it. Any help is very appreciated.
