Verizon Xperia Z4v set to launch on August 13 [Update]

by XB on 8th July 2015

in Xperia Z4 and Z3+ series

Sony Xperia Z4v for VerizonThe reveal announcement for the Sony Xperia Z4v (E6508) last month contained scant launch details – no information on price or release date were given. Well Sony has now confirmed that the Verizon-bound Xperia Z4v will launch on Thursday 13 August 2015. This is perhaps a little later than some hoped, but at least we now have a date in the diary. We would expect pricing details closer to launch.

The Xperia Z4v is broadly similar to the Xperia Z3+ but offers a higher WQHD resolution (1440 x 2560), wireless charging and higher battery capacity (3000mAh). Other specs match the Xperia Z3+ including 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. The Xperia Z4v will be released in black and white colours.

Update: The date has now been removed from the Xperia Z4v promotional website. Sony Mobile got in touch to say that the date is “not accurate”, so we’ll bring you official launch details when we have them.

Sony Xperia Z4v for Verizon

  • Nikola Maruni?

    By the time Z4v launches we will see the Z5. Also Z3+ and Z4 will be much cheaper.

  • best

    That resolution is gonna kill that battery within hours.

  • GigaSPX

    And damn I’m still waiting for lollipop along with all the other Z3v users. No simultaneous voice and data. :/

  • Diogo Simões

    Probably it will be released with Android 5.1

  • The battery life probably won’t be quite as good as the Z3, but it’ll still be pretty good. QHD really doesn’t make too much of a difference when it comes down to it. As long as it’s a good panel.

  • marcyff2

    3+ has a worse battery life than z3. Z4v is going to have an even worse

  • Wolf0491

    It’s my understanding that Verizon Is awful at updates

    Sony should learn from Verizon how business is done… Firm date announcement, marketing in advance, firm feature requirements…. Much more relaiable than sony announcing a release date.

    Ironically, it took Sony another company to make a better phone…. Admit it this much better than the z3+

    Does the addition of QHD and wireless charging alone account for the almost 2mm increase in thickness over the Z3+? I don’t know much about smartphone engineering but maybe something has been added in the design of the Z4v to help manage the SD810 issues?

  • 21187

    Z4v launches in August. Z5 announced in September, available in November.

  • 21187

    Sony claims “up to 2 days” battery for Z3+ and only “up to 27 hours” for Z4v

  • Timel

    The fugliest smartphone Sony’s ever made

  • Is Z5 really going to launch this year .. ? What ever happened to switching to a yearly only upgrade basis ?

  • Pingback: Sony site says Verizon Xperia Z4v launches August 13th | Smartphone Tips n Tricks()

  • Nikola Maruni?

    They blew that already by releasing Z4/Z3+/Z4v. Also many rumors are circulating about Z5 so I wouldn’t be surprised!

  • Nikola Maruni?

    Still to small of a window for an average buyer!

  • But the Z4 Z3+ was supposed to be the final phones ! After this we were supposed to see a yearly cycle. God dammit Sony.

  • Really you hate S6 Design ? wow ur the first person i’ve met that hates it

  • Andre Lemard

    There’s a lot of people that hate the S6’s design because they think that “it looks too similar to the design of the iPhone 6”.

    Well it looks like the release date August 13 has been removed from that website.. Who knows when this will be released now

  • Timel

    At least the VERIZON S6 edge is much beautiful than this fugly Z4v

  • Timel

    Oh c’mon only Sony fanboy that think like this

  • Timel

    Ugly phone like this?
    Z4v specs is also too normal

  • lovebmw

    Ugly yes, what other sony has wireless charging? Compare screen resolutions shall we? How about a robust release date?

  • Jessie Schueler
  • Timel

    Deceptive marketing..the phone looks smaller in the larger hands..probably to give an effective of better holding ability

  • Svnjay

    “After this we were supposed to see a yearly cycle. ”

    Sony did not say that.

  • Svnjay

    Smaller bezels than the iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6.

  • Svnjay

    At least the Z4v has smaller bezels and had glass before Samsung copied it.

  • Svnjay

    Z3+ has better battery life than the S6, M9 and G4 according to GSM Arena.

  • Timel

    Butthurt so much, right? Hahahaha
    You’re so funny and so pity in the time

    I bet If you say bullshit like this outside Sony cave (the place that you’ve lived in), people will laugh at you so hard Svnjay

    You must leave Sony cave.. . How dare you said that Samsung copied Sony, just because their smartphone had glass material? LOL

    Sony is not even the first manufacturer that make glass body phone so don’t flatter you Sony too much

  • Svnjay

    Such a coincidence that Samdung used glass and aluminum. Such a coincidence that the bottom of the S6 looks so much like the iPhone 6? Remember that Samdung is known for copying Apple?

  • Timel

    Yeah I’ll agree if you would say “Samsung has always copied Apple” that’s truth, Can’t help, everyone wanna be Apple

  • Svnjay

    ” Can’t help, everyone wanna be Apple”

    Haha, that’s why Apple did nothing but copy Google and other companies at WWDC.

  • Timel

    While No one cares your Sony?

  • Svnjay

    I think we both know that the iPhone 4 is a Sony rip-off.

  • Timel

    No, except You just wanna believe what you wanna believe.

  • Svnjay

    Hey, even Samsung knows it. Also, Apple did an aluminum unibody phone right after Sony did the aluminum unibody Xperia P.

  • Timel

    Oh gosh Svnjay, my friend, he believes Samsung , R.I.P Svnjay’s brain

    Oh actually, I gotta say that… no wonder at all if the bullshit people like Svnjay will believe sucksung

  • It was a rumor and I wish it were true :(

  • Utsav Shah

    I hate every designs that are copied.

    Apparently a Verizon webpage showed the Z4v might be released this month at $549

  • Someone investigated the rumor behind the Snapdragon 810 over heating issues and its false. Sony Z3+ and Z4 do have over heating problems but the 810 isnt causing it.

  • kami

    Hopefully they will fix the issue with the loss of LTE signal when wifi is on. I lose most if not all cellular signal on ATT in Miami on my dualchip 6633 Z3…

  • bladenr1

    Sonys game is big this year let everybody see who is the boss. Sony is growing. I hope it goes well for them.

  • 21187

    THIS JUST IN – Z4v will be released by Verizon on September 3

  • richardar6

    So does this phone really exist? I can’t get any recent info on it. It really shows no one is at the helm of either Sony or Verizon. . . The Xperia Z5 gets released before the Z4v? Nice. Seriously, these idiots have no idea why Sony is losing so much money? Hire me. I don’t have experience, but apparently that doesn’t matter!
