Sony Xperia Z4 gets April 20 announcement date?
According to an informed source, Sony is planning to announce "a new Xperia smartphone" (possibly in Japan), no later than April 20, 2015. With the barrage of Sony Xperia Z4-related leaks we're witnessing on an almost daily basis, we're thinking that Sony won't contain its 2015 flagship much longer. The specs, press renders, and live photos are already here, which hints at a smartphone that clearly can't take much longer to come.

Even though Sony has little to surprise us with at this point, we're keeping our fingers crossed for an Xperia Z4 announcement eight days before the LG G4 (which has been fully revealed, too) drops. There's a lot to love about Xperia smartphones, and the Z4 is shaping up to be the best one so far with its 5.2-inch high-resolution display, Snapdragon 810 chipset, 3 to 4GB of RAM, 20.7MP main camera, and of course, the signature Sony metal and glass build.

While details surrounding the upcoming smartphone are pretty much set in stone at this point, the date of reveal remains highly speculative until further notice, so don't go circling calendars or anything until we've got some more reliable information to report.

Nothing disappointing if this turns out to be the Z3 Neo, at least we still can hope for a different design on the Z4. But anyways, I'm still excited and fingers crossed for the Z4. Bring it on!

YES He is indeed right!
have you noticed from z, z1, z2, z3, and now the z4 all look very very the same FLAT BOXY "TOO MUCH RECTANGLE '' SLIPPERY phone. plus the FAT BEZELS!

so it boring!

Sony should learn from LG from The Optimus G ,to LG G2, LG G3, and to LG G4 all these flagship phones have differences. there is always changes on it design.

Learn from LG? I'm sorry to say, but LG's design are more often ugly than not. But that's just my opinion, of course.

Looking at the design of the LG phones, I'd want them to change their designs too! I think they are ugly! Like the previous Samsung Galaxies.

With regards to the Xperia Z line up, I wouldn't mind if they change the design and make it better, but again, as they say, "why fix it if it's not broken".

"why fix it if it's not broken".
exactly that's why i saw thousands of people( some are sony phone's users) complaining about the Sony's same old boring design...
and everybody know that sony is almost bankrupt most especially in the smartphone department.

boring design =less buyers =less sold phones=less profits.

LG mobile sold morethan doubled than of sony's

Sony xperia Z and ZL were actually copied from the Optimus G!

atleast every year LG provides good and different design and people love it that's why LG's customers is increasing...

top 2 Major Smartphone maker with Android OS.
1 SAMSUNG

Yeah of course plastic is more flexible to different designs compared to glass and aluminum (+ water proof).

The Z3's bezels are smaller than the S6...so much for fat.

Also, why would Samsung "catch up" to Sony's design if they were boring?

There is a saying..."if you can't do it properly, don't do it at all"

Sony should heed this advice and scrap this design. They should take their time, go back to the drawing board and bring us a phone worth upgrading to in September. Have they even seen the S6 / S6 Edge, or leaked pics of the LG G4?

Specs are specs nowadays. Most devices have acceptable specs, even mid rangers, so Sony's focus has to be on design. Samsung have brought the heat, LG will follow suit and Sony should sit up and take notice, otherwise their next device will be a complete fail.

What heat? Samsung just copied Sony's design.

The G4 looks nearly identical to the G3 and G2.

What Heat has Samsung brought????? With the S6 they have changed the materials, but the design remained the same and the phone still looks cheap and terrible with the sparkiling rim around it.

This is the Z3 Neo, a refreshed version of last year's Z3 (which apparently no one liked). The Z4 will come later this year probably in september at IFA Berlin.

if they sucess to handle the heat of S810 without underclock, this is going to be my next phone, if not i will pass 2015 lineup and go for the moto maxx(droid turbo) or Desire Eye

If they dont fix the camera software then this phone will fail just as hard as the Z3 did. There is no reason why the Note4/S6 with Sony sensors no less and 4 less MP should be destroying the Z3 in photography.

If it has a great camera AND a MicroSD, I will probably purchase this.

Glad I waited and didn't get the Samsung S6 yet.

I'm pretty confused right now. Sony is going to introduce Z3 NEO and Z4? Z3 NEO next Monday and Z4 probably in May?

The leaked pics are revamped Z3. No wonder the design is identical to the original Z3. I have to wait for Z4 PATIENTLLY. I hope it's worth the wait
