The Sony Xperia Z4v (E6508) will be exclusively heading to Verizon in the United States the carrier has just announced. The Xperia Z4v is basically the same phone as the Xperia Z3+/Z4 but comes armed with some important differences.
First of all, the Xperia Z4v has a higher WQHD resolution (1440 x 2560) display versus the FHD (1080p) display found on the Xperia Z3+/Z4. The Xperia Z4v also has a slightly higher battery capacity of 3000mAh versus 2930mAh in the Xperia Z3+/Z4, but importantly the Xperia Z4v also includes wireless charging with the latest inductive ‘Qi’ and PMA technology.
The inclusion of wireless charging means that the Xperia Z4v is chunkier with dimensions of 144.4 x 72.3 x 8.6mm, whereas the Xperia Z3+/Z4 has dimensions of 146.3 x 71.9 x 6.9 mm. So you are looking at 1.7mm of extra thickness in the Xperia Z4v. It is also heavier at 160 grams versus 144 grams for the Xperia Z3+/Z4.
The rest of the specifications match the Xperia Z3+/Z4 and include a 5.2-inch IPS display, 20.7MP Exmor RS rear camera, 5MP Exmor R front camera with 25mm wide angle lens, Snapdragon 810 chipset, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage with microSD memory card support, IP65/IP68 dust and water certification and capless USB charging.
