    Still no word on whether specs will be different compared to the Japan only one? I doubt it, but would be good to know either way.

  • Redfire 89

    Does someone know when i will get the update for my xperia z here in germany? Via OTA and PCC nothing…pls answer

  • Ben Ling

    It is E6533 not D6533 :)

  • xperiaDROID

    So, it’s most likely the same thing as the “Japan-only” Z4? If that’s true, then it makes no sense for them to launch it to Japan first then globally a month later and call it “the global flagship”.

    Z5…I’m waiting for you.

  • It’s not rolling in Germany right now. Only released in Sweden and Hongkong. You have to wait some days before it roll outs. Also depends on branded or not-branded. Think you will get in the next 1-2 weeks ;)

  • Redfire 89

  • Redfire 89

    hi nachbar ;) hast du das update einfach über das update center erhalten oder geflasht? Und ist das gerät mit einem brand vershen? bitte antworte,ich wills auch endlich haben! :D

  • Pineda R.


    das Update kam bei mir OTA. :)
    Kein Branding ist versehen

  • HAWX

    After this I doubt Z5 may arrive 1 year later after Z4’s launch. I don’t know what Sony is doing with this Z4. But the impression I get is that Sony is trying to haunt customers who don’t know about other phones and specs or just for Sony hard fans.. But that’s not a good thing If you want to be Premium brand.

  • Svnjay

    There are no other specs to use other than the Snapdragon 810.

  • Redfire 89

    okey also wird es ja hoffentlich auch bald kommen…ich wohne ja ganz im süden von baden württemberg….is ja nich weit weg ,von dem her…bitte sony gott :D

  • ChilliPSco

    May be so, but I would much prefer a better camera with OIS.

  • P9

    release it Sony
    xperia Z3 is not yet the best for now
    XZ user.

  • XperiaBlog

    Thx for the spot!

  • one

    Is this legit? Like an OTA update?

  • roeshak

    I think they’ve decided to focus on profitability as opposed to growing their market presence by scaling down on production to cater to ththeir loyal fanbase and buyers who may be partial to the Sony style.
    I think they’ve given up on competition to be honest. I never expected much from this year’s flagship after the z3’s very minor improvements if at all. The 2016 flagship will truly show what direction they’re heading in.

    That’s incredibly relevant on this article.

    llashing is also legit

  • Timel

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

    Xperia Z4 has nothing to compete with flagship smartphone like S6 edge and iPhone 6, and in Q4 of this year, Z4 must face with Galaxy Note 5 and iPhone 6s… So it’s clear that Sony can’t win at all, I dont know what is Sony thinking now

    Well, thats your opinion and I respect that.
    In my view, the update is very smooth for a device, which is two years old.

    The user interface has really improved since Timescape, but again this is my view.

    I don’t care about the camera quality, because when I go to a trip, I always take my DLSR.

  • Pineda R.

    I know right? :)

  • ryq24

    I thought Sony mobile have pulled out of China already. Anyway, this phone will fail in China.

    I’m just waiting for the promos and commercials. Sony advertisements for the win XD

  • ramuk

    Why people still reply to “Timel the shit eater” is beyond my understanding after all its been well known fact that he is just a troll. Just flag and ignore.

    Was meinst du denn wann das update bei mir hier im süden von de ankommt? Hoffentlich.morgen oder so

  • one

    yes i know but i meant sent from sony and not flashed obviously

  • My guess is that this phone should have been announced in january/february and be available in march/april, as sony has always done in the latest years with their 6 months release cycle, but the problems with the snapdragon 810 delayed the phone and so it’s coming out now. It remains to be seen what they will do with the z5… I’m sure it was planned for this fall, but they could decide to move its release to 2016… I can’t see any manufacturer launching a flagship and then making obsolete after 4 months, though Sony is perfectly capable of doing this.

  • Hopefully it’s China only model like the Japan only and not global release.

  • Melfes Wired

    So I can assume that people will get so pissed at Sony when this gets released internationally as the “Z4”. Not so if it’s the “Z3+”

    Either way, I’m waiting for the Z4/5 Ultra or the Note 5.
