Xperia Z4 SOV31_6A second Japanese carrier has announced plans to launch the Sony Xperia Z4. au by KDDI confirmed that it will be stocking the Xperia Z4 (SOV31) and Xperia Z4 Tablet (SOT31). This follows NTT docomo who announced earlier in the week that it will carry three new handsets this summer: the Xperia A4 (SO-04G), Xperia Z4 (SO-03G) and Xperia Z4 Tablet (SO-05G).

au by KDDI will launch the Xperia Z4 in four colours in mid-June (Aqua Green, Black, Copper and White) and the Xperia Z4 Tablet in mid-July in two colours (Black and White). So that is two Japanese carriers who have announced the Xperia Z4 series. SoftBank could potentially also announce the handset, it will hold a press conference on 19 May 2015. However, we know most readers want to know when it hits western markets, Sony remains tight-lipped on that front but we would hope further information is coming soon.

    Really beautiful device, Sony is an artist!
    But, S810… No thanks.

    I can’t wait a Xperia Z5 with a other (and good please) processor to replace my Xperia SP!

  • Andre Lemard

    The S810 was the one with the overheating issues right? I suppose Sony probably underclocked it to prevent it.

  • Drakomord

    Yes it’s him. But with the Z4 Tablet, in the tests of my country (France), the S810 has been really nice managed by Sony. But I don’t take the risk. ^^

    Hope Sony will try something new with the Xperia Z5 like Samsung which really did great with their S6 Edge.

    Many people love Blue Topaz and Emerald Green colours of S6 edge so much, these two colours are very classy, outstanding and unique, Sony should do the same with the Xperia Z5.

  • inspire

    Sony may be weak in marketing but they certainly know how to make product promotional videos and do product still shots! Always so subtle, clean yet pleasingly beautiful!

  • ramuk

    Could you,Please, provide the link of the test. I’m interested in knowing how SD810 is performing in Z4 tablet. Thanks in advance.

  • David Hvatov

    Boring design. It’s nothing, comprared to Z2.

  • Drakomord
  • HAWX

    Timel I absolutely agree with you on this one :D

  • gmfady

    .. just look on that Beauty ? Sony

  • Akand

    If I forget previous Z models, Z4 is more beautiful and sexier than S6. But the problem is that Sony introduced S6 leveled premium design two years before and we’re used to with it. That’s why we feel Sony is falling behind. But actually Samsung is coming to Sony level. Only problem of Sony is the Marketing.
    In term of design Samsung could reach Sony level but UI……Sony is far away from Samsung. Sony UI is the most well organised, simple, user friendly and hassle free. I just feel one lacking and it is same app icon templates. I mean all icons should have same shaped frame like iphone or nokia symbian ana or meego. Fully transparent UI like What’s New app would be more better.That’s it.
    However design change with more better look and feel is always welcomed.

  • daviddang

    if only the screen and camera were up to the galaxy s6’s quality

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    I will get the copper !!

  • brian007

    Xperia Z4 is a failure, waiting for next flagship

  • Svnjay

    The Snapdragon 810 in the Z4 Tablet beat the S6 in some benchmarks.

  • Svnjay

    Why is it a failure?

  • Svnjay

    I just want to buy the Z4 but Sony keeps teasing me :(

  • brian007

    It is a Z3 with s810, it is not a new phone, just a Z3 upgrade

  • Mokhtar Mouhib

    Totally agree… A good design but This should be the z3 ..

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    I’ve always liked their ads, every product they release has a great ad. If only there were more here in the US…


    What defines a new phone?

    If my computer goes for a new motherboard, a new CPU, a new GPU, a new HDD and a new case… I consider that as having a new computer..

    The Z4 has… Snapdragon 810 which brings a new CPU and GPU… it comes with 32GB of internal memory… a new HDD… and has a different external design.. a new case…

    I myself am looking forward to the Z4. Here’s to hoping it comes in a 64GB variant for me to throw even more money at Sony.

  • brian007

    For example, if you want to upgrade your computer, you buy a new HDD, new cpu and new GPU.

    But if you want to buy a new computer, you buy a new computer.

    This is not new to Z3 users, and if you have any other Z phone, and want to buy a new phone, this should be a Z3.

    Because S810 has some heat and clock speed problems, cases are nearly the same, camera and display are nearly the same.

  • xperiaDROID

    It’s not about the benchmarks, it’s all about the real life performance. The numbers don’t mean anything, it’s just like “Hey look, I have the highest score in here!”, but seriously what’s the point? You’ll get lower scores if you try to benchmark it few times anyways, that’s speed throttle of Snapdragon 810 for you.

  • Reza

    But the internal memory is different and capless on the USB port that’s a big moved. One more thing this is only for Japanese market.

  • Reza

    Yeah, so do I… I wonder why they don’t give the ad to the local TV commercial..

  • mike

    the usb port need some work, so ugly

  • just boring same omnibalance design about 4 generation -__-

  • P9

    release it international, pls. and then start do everything for Z5.
    I’m XZ user, Z3 is not yet the best for now, I need the goodness of this Z4.

  • i don’t care if people think it’s the same i need this phone even though i have a z3 this may be the final omnibalance design and the most perfect one only thing missing for the most perfected design would be the black metal frame of the z ultra

  • angle

    ??love?? ???wperia???.-. Continue Reading



    I am a Z3 user, and I find this brings about enough changes for me to want to get it, especially the larger internal memory. I also prefer the Z2 style speaker designs better.

  • hmmm

    same camera for 3 years,same screen quality,same ram (worst ram ),same design.smaller battery…..nothing new,same phone,over and over again!NO RAW SUPPORT YET!

  • Timbo

    Just announce the damn thing for the rest of the world already !

    Agreed with all what you said, but with the icon part. It’s not Sony’s fault or say, it’s just that Android doesn’t impose restrictions on icon shape (unlike iOS) and hence Sony can’t do anything here. Although, these Chinese companies (xioami, meizu, etc.) do impose their icon shape restrictions but they end up cropping the icons in square/circle which looks so pathetically bad in the end :/
    So, I’m happy that Sony doesn’t do anything stupid like that and still tries to stick to round design for their own ecosystem’s apps’ icons (unlike rubbish and incoherent icon design by LG/Samsung).

  • roeshak

    Shows no software info in about phone so we can’t be sure this is from the z. I’m doubtful. I had the Z and its display was never that colourful!

  • roeshak

    You certainly are a hardcore Sony fan!

  • Ryan Kumar Jassi

    Wow can’t believe your still going strong on jellybean sp thought you’d be annoyed it didn’t get lollipop like it can run that’s great

  • Ryan Kumar Jassi

    It would be nice to see an xperia with curved display and still be water resistant Sony keep making 20.7 mp camera which is only good for resolution I noticed that when I recorded timeshift video on z2 it was very dark and changing the exposure did nothing like Sony make the lenses for iPhone and Samsung so why do their phones not have the better sensor?

  • Ryan Kumar Jassi

    You mean a z2, z2 and z3 are the ones that are exactly the same

  • Ali

    I think sony should start using Windows OS on tablets…

  • Ryan Kumar Jassi

    I had z wanted to upgrade to z4 but it would be like £600 in UK if it came here so I got z2 for £220 new

  • Maurice Phoenix

    Gonna Get Tablet Z4 When I Come To SGP This July…Hope It Already Released On June ^^

  • Drakomord

    I have Lollipop on my XSP with CM12.1, XDA community is here and better than Sony. :D

  • Ravi

    This is amazing with open USB port and proud looking. But I think this design may be changed in Z5

  • Ryan Kumar Jassi

    Ah OK makes sense I’m patiently waiting for the next existenz ROM for z2

  • iia3ezu

    Let’s wait for the Xperia Z5 with Snapdragon 820 and USB-C.

    I doubt the Xperia Z4 is going to be for countries outside of Japan.

    Sony may be waiting for Qualcomm to get its act together, and I doubt Sony will want to use an Exynos or Mediatek chip for its own flagship phone (for obvious reasons).

    So many tech advances, it is a great time to be alive.

  • ryq24

    They can put the picture of Z3 in their ads and say it is the new Z4 and no one will notice. Sony will be stupid to release this phone in the international market. It will not only be a big failure but will anger a lot of Sony loyal fans who might decide to switch to other brand. The only way Sony can sell this phone successfully is if the price is the same as xiaomi or huawei premium phone.

  • Tomas Urban

    Is camera in z4 improved?

  • Ole Petter Hvesser

    Does anyone know if the Z4 supports Qi wireless charging?

  • CassandraWWard

    ????????$89 /hour on the internet@me15//



  • ruba

    Please sony include in the next flagship the forgotten IR Blaster like xperia ZL and the new IMX230 sensor at least!
    Other aspects, 32/64 GB internal storage, 4 GB RAM, snapdragon 820, gorilla glass 4, 25mm angular front camera and the classic water and dust certified……… and please reduce the bezels!
