The 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.
