Xperia A2 June releaseJapanese carrier NTT docomo has announced it will launch the Sony Xperia A4 (SO-04G) on 18 June 2015. The Sony Xperia A4 is almost identical to the global Xperia Z3 Compact, although it comes with a plastic rear rather than glass. It will launch for 77,760 yen (£406, €561, $630).

NTT docomo’s strategy here is to offer near-flagship specs for a relatively cheaper price, a similar strategy that brought it success with the Xperia A2. Specifications include a 4.6-inch 720p display, Snapdragon 801 chipset with 2.5GHz quad-core, 16GB internal storage, 2GB RAM, 20.7MP rear camera, 2.2MP front camera and a 2600mAh battery.

    So z3 compact?

  • Vuyo Ncube

    I think Sony’s new global design language should run closer to that of their Japanese phones. The Z5 should have some ZL2 or A4 blood in it. Ergonomic. Slim top and bottom bezels. Bulky and reasonably thick but not fat.

    If the real ‘Z4 Compact’ is going to come later, hopefully they can sort out some of the issues that are already affecting the Z4…

  • Sachin Gautam

    What Kind Of UI is shown in the phone looks like of HTC kind????

    What is the point of a redone Z3c? Surely the Z3c would be cheaper to get with an arguably better design? I’m so confused Sony, with this decision.

  • Niels d. G.

    Exactly the same hardware, easily scratchable plastic back, and it’ll be more expensive than the Z3C when it was just released. How are they calling this a cheaper option for anything?
    You’re weird, Sony.

  • Great Dude

    In my guess, There won’t be Xperia Z4c instead there will be in the next flagship.
    You remember how there wasn’t Xperia Z2c. and The Z4 is already not having great applaud like the older devices.

  • Rene Pedroso

    I paid $625 USD for the XZ3+

  • Brian De Guzman

    I’m pretty sure this will never be released outside japan

  • Samuel

    Looks weird because it has the DoCoMo launcher and a ton of bloatware

  • omar

    How do you see the photos taken with the phone?

  • Ryan Kumar-jassi

    Its basically a z3 compact

  • Svnjay

    The Xperia Z1 Compact was announced a few weeks before the Z2.

  • Eduardo Otero

    Actually A series are Japan exclusive, we won’t see any A outside Japan

  • Eduardo Otero

    Remember there won’t be Xperia Z4 globally and I don’t believe there can be an Xperia Z3+ Compact.

  • Eduardo Otero

    A plastic Z3 Compact

  • Eduardo Otero

    So plastic Z3 Compact

  • Ryan Kumar-jassi

    Yep this is how Sony are wasting money making things they already have

  • Timel

    Japanese phones are always fugly

    fugly design, fugly UI, fugly users

  • Great Dude

    You mean that they may announce Z3+c just before the next flagship.
    I doubt that since they aren’t making a big deal of it and the name would be very long to say Sony Xperia Z three plus compact
    Xperia Z1c was late because the idea was late and Xperia Z was a successful device.
    That didn’t happened with the Xperia Z3c that is why I believe that they won’t make a Z3+c but will wait tell the next flagship

  • Svnjay

    That it not what I meant. The fact that the Z1 Compact was announced a few weeks before the Z2 may be the reason that there was no Z2 Compact.

  • Great Dude

    Sorry for misunderstanding, but okay I got now what do you mean.
    You are right on that, however I still think that there won’t be an Xperia Z4/3+ compact because Xperia Z3 & Z3compact where announced together and because Z3+ is an upgrade to Z3 ,so people will be somehow skeptical to buy it.
