Sony China confirms Xperia Z4 announcement on 26 May

by XB on 22nd May 2015

in Rumours, Xperia Z4 and Z3+ series


Sony China Xperia Z4Earlier today we reported that the Sony Xperia Z4 (E6533) had been certified by TENAA and now it appears that Sony Mobile China has officially confirmed its existence regardless. The official Sony Xperia Weibo account released the teaser below – it shows the top half of an Xperia Z4 and a date of 26 May 2015. Looks like we will see the Xperia Z4 launch outside of Japan next week after all. Other regions which could see the Xperia Z4/Z3+ launch next week include Taiwan, Hong Kong and India. There’s no guarantee we’ll see the handset in the west but we’ll keep you posted with further developments.

    FIRST!!!

  • bornatalebi

    NOOOOOOOO. Hope it’s not the REAL Z4.

  • Sergio

    Gonna get rekt by downvotes. (And you knew it)

  • Geese Howard

    Haha… Well figured I will try it once (well twice now) Happy for the phone really. Like I kept on saying this is a serious upgrade anything below the Z2. My money is going to go there.

  • Timel

    Z4:
    Boring and cheap-looking UI
    Boring Design
    No new wow factor
    Same old hardware techs
    Same old shitty camera

    Sony failures to innovate, Sony flagship smartphones are always lack of innovation… So it’s clear that Xperia Z4 has nothing to compete with flagship smartphone like the Galaxy S6 edge and an iPhone 6, and in Q4 of this year, Z4 must face with the Galaxy Note 5 and an iPhone 6s, How Sony can win this game? I don’t think people will choose Z4 over smartphone like S6 edge, Note 5 and iPhone 6s.

  • Sadman Khan

    Hope it’s called Z3+

    Japan Xperia Z4:

    Amazing Design

    Best Camera

    Best Battery

    New 64bit Octa-core CPU

    Best GPU Adreno 430

    New LPDDR4 Ram

    New Camera Soft

    Troll sense less interested (Samsung’s and APPLE’s Fanatic)

  • Siyam Hossain

    People: z4 is japan only, we will see z5 as a global release… Bla bla bla
    Sony: ha ha ha…

  • Asad Ahmed

    I’m pretty sure that people will choose Z4 as you have chosen this forum and spent so much time to write this thing. This shows your curiosity and fear as well :D

  • Reza

    Are u feeling insecurity…

  • Nabeel Raza

    Doesn’t make sense. Because the next flagship after this would be called Z5 and not Z4 because it has been released in Japan already with that name. So yes, Z3+ or Z4, doesn’t really matter.

    I would buy it if it had 4gb RAM. But it’s coming with 3gb. So I will wait untill IFA, Berlin.

    PapaSmurf also trolls at BGR.

  • Svnjay

    I’ll get the Nexus 6 if Sony doesn’t release the Z4 internationally or soon enough.

  • Nodar Sixarulidze

    Fool you cool F

  • Emil Oskarsson

    the thing is the new exyonos SOC is more powerful then s810, but touchwiz aka lagwiz do make the new galaxy s6 and s6 edge run on the same level of performance as s810 or even worse x)

  • Emil Oskarsson

    so why is the xperia z2 and z3 ranked as top 5 best camera smartphones ever?…. REMEMBER z2 and z3 was released back in 2014 therefore you can only compare them to galaxy s5 lg g3 and note 4 for example. Not g4 and galaxy s6…

  • Autobot1

    The Gs6 now runs smooth like any other phones. Nice try. TW doesn’t suck now.

  • Vuyo Ncube

    It should at least beat the Z3 Compact in battery life for customer satisfaction. Other OEMs have slowly deteriorated in the most important feature in a smartphone.

    change the black panel, it will attract more customers.

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    Nothing much to offer but i dont mind having more an option.

  • Kamil1308

    Looks like Z4 is going to be next Bond`s phone.

  • hansip

    You know what? Adreno 430 is faster than Mali’s on Exynos. Just saying. As long as Sony can find ways to control A57 block i think it will come out with a winner.

  • gamer324

    A rose by any other name.. Sony should just call it the z4, regardless of the name, Sony Mobile will catch a lot of flak for this flagship, so the least they can do is to keep the nomenclature sound.
    My guess is Sony will just announce the remaining z4 devices (Compact, Ultra, Tablet Compact) at IFA, save the number 5 flagships for early next year.

  • gamer324

    The z4 tablet seemed to handle the s810 pretty good, granted it has a bigger surface area, but it is also thinner and arguably more tightly packed than the phone.
    I just hope that Sony does still make a 1080p flagship with the s820, because I’ll appreciate the GPU boost over any squinty increase in sharpness.

  • gamer324

    Quite true, and Sony doesn’t put an unreasonably big battery either to cause excessive weight gains or thickness, Sony’s battery gains come from using properly efficient parts like screens with more brightness per milliwatt and much much better software-level battery management.

  • ryq24

    I wonder if sony knows a lot of people are disappointed with the Z4?

  • 3xChester_exe

    I also think about that, but i think he is talking about sensors :/

  • 3xChester_exe

    Depending by user based usage though.. :/ For me much likey to listening music all day long and my Z lasted for 2 days uncharged .

  • gamer324

    Most users of GS 5 and G3 usually post around 3-4 hours of screen-on time max under moderate usage before their battery dies, lowest I’ve heard with z2 is 4 hours intense usage but that was from a user who said that they got unusually poor 3g signals in his country, other people usually post 6+ hours on-screen time with mixed but heavy usage. But most users are able to get about 10 hours screen-on usage with z2 and a bit more with z3 with stamina mode configured.

  • gamer324

    That is what it is supposed to be honestly. Normally people keep their phones for 2 years, so logically most people upgrading to z4 will be coming from the z1 or more likely the original Z or some other 2013 device. Very few would be upgrading their 2014 flagship phones this year.

  • Maxx Tan

    what’s so disappointing about it?

  • gamer324

    A lot of the internet crowd, yes. But companies like sony usual focus test these products with target demographics, and you’d be surprised how different a picture those focus tests provide. Usually focus test results are fairly accurate aswell.
    So while I’m sure Sony is aware of the bad press and the lukewarm forum response, they’re also probably aware of the millions who would like a waterproof flagship with long battery life, premium design and great camera.
    On another note, the response to the z4 in Japan has been overwhelmingly positive so far, and that is Sony’s strongest market.

  • gamer324

    Pretty sure he’s just talking about the general response to the z4, which is that it isn’t a big enough leap to be considered a new flagship. Arguable as that point may be, it doesn’t change the fact that objectively, the z4 is a properly great device with the most well rounded specs of any 2015 flagship thus far.

  • gamer324

    Looks like it, it’s a bit late for Sony to launch two global flagships this year too. Certainly an interesting year to be an xperia fan.

  • gamer324

    Pretty sure sony will announce it globally in the coming week, maybe not in America, but certainly in Asia and Europe. But don’t expect any upgrades over the japanese edition, lest you be disappointed.

  • Maxx Tan

    Funny when he says a lot of people. I am certainly not disssappointed with the Z4. It would be great when people like him just comment with a backing why. Or else it just sounds like poor opinion.

  • Timel

    Whoever if didn’t lick Sony’s balls, must be troll

    This is Sony’s fanboys logic, so pity
    Sony Mobile is the worst smartphone manufacturer and its fanboys are the worst too

    Troll is much better than Xperia fanboys, at least they never afraid to speak the truth while Xperia fanboys’ve gotta defend Sony every time, are you tried Xperia fanboys?

  • CueX

    Software can be downloaded from Playstore, hardware can’t

  • Timel

    Lol stop talking bullshit and you need to update your brain as quick as possible, I hate Touchwiz, it’s fugly to me but Touchwiz is very smooth and very stable now, this is why Xperia fanboys are always too blind.

  • Timel

    Z4:

  • Saro

    It got the Snapdragon 810. A cpu that has proven time and time again that it overheats and start throttling. Google it and see the dissapointment.

  • Geese Howard

    Actually I disagree with that. Nowadays a lot of people take things for granted you see. People overvalue what they are getting and undervalue what they have. This has been the trend ever since the 21st Century. So while you and I, and I’m sure most of the dudes here will upgrade their phones 2-3 years time, most of them out there will update whenever a new model appears. It’s sad to see, but we’ve been pampered by these companies so much we’ve become spoiled brats ourselves.

  • Kamil1308

    After looking around internet it looks like they are going to be using Xperia Z3 Compact instead of the Z4. You are right its too late for them to launch two global flagships this year which sucks because I really wanted to upgrade my Z1.

  • Timel

    Great device must pack with great software and great hardware together

    Sony Z series gave you just a great hardware but shitty software while Samsung S6 and Apple iPhone 6 gave costumers all the great hardware and the great software together

    You must admit this, Sony phones ain’t the best and also worse than competitors in some ways, especially the camera

    Unfortunately today the smartphone’s camera is the big deal for many people that’s why Sony phones never look good enough for normal people and no one want Sony phones except Sony fanboys

  • penubag

    Is that a white z4? I thought the white ones had a white front panel

  • Richard Fong

    Are we certain the handset in the image is Z4? The Z4 in Japan has a white screen surround with silver rim or black surround with black rim, this is black on silver.

    Also, historically, the flagship range isn’t the colourful range (the compact is). The headline of this teaser says “add a bit of colour”. I’m sceptical that this is Z4.

  • David Onter

    Not this kind of software. You know that software doesn’t just mean apps, right? I want to see you download the DRM keys from the PS you loose while unlocking the bootloader of your Z3… -.-‘

  • HAWX

    Actually I can see Z??? ??4? in the picture :D

  • khalid

    but how about its battery life the most important thing in phone now a days
    is it better or the same as shit as iphone’s is ?

  • robertkoa

    I will be very impressed if SONY can get their own Camera to function as well as G4( G4 is also great) or S6 Camera- finally.

    I hope they do and continue the great Battery Life of Z3 and Z3C.

    The Battery Life is the Achilles Heel of both G4 and S6.

    To quote* Albert Einstein:
    “To hell with superthin Phones- we need larger Batteries.”

    *This Quote may not be exactly what he said but he may have said something similar…kind of.

  • robertkoa

    Yes but the Capacity on the Z3 Compact is 2600 Mah which is larger than Samsung S6 and equal to Edge.

    Both G4 and S6 have weak Batteries.A clever Manufacturer could make a thicker Phone with a larger Battery as a “feature”.
    All SONY needs to do is maintain or increase the long Battery Life of Z3 and Z3 Compact and upgrade the Cameras and speakers and go 64 bit .
    Can they ? Yes.
    Will they ?

  • robertkoa

    Yeah the S6 and Edge have some great features but despite all the 14 nanometer circuit boards etc etc- the Batteries are too small to just do whatever you want for 8 to 10 hours.
    I have heard LG G4 is the same- these phones are not really made for high usage…
    AND Batteries will get worse after 200 charges .

  • robertkoa

    True. I tried to download a larger Sensor and better lens- did not work lol.
