The same, but better - even more Sony Xperia Z4 photos show up for your viewing pleasure

The same, but better - even more Sony Xperia Z4 photos show up for your viewing pleasure
We got our hands on yet another set of leaked photos showing what appears to be the Sony Xperia Z4. Assuming this is the real deal - and we are 99% sure, because the model number in the second pic reads E6553 and corresponds to the Z4 - then this is another supremely sleek smartphone from Sony, even if its quality design feels all too familiar at this point. Then again, this is arguably the best a Xperia smartphone has ever looked, so no complaints here! 

According to the ones who passed along the photos, the Xperia Z4 will be released in 1080p and 1440p screen resolution variants, both featuring a display diagonal of 5.2 inches. It is also said that both will be outfitted with Snapdragon 810 processors and 4GB of RAM, as well as 20.7MP main cameras, 5MP front cams, and in-house made S-Master HX DACs.

From other leaked photos, it is also apparent that Sony waved goodbye to the closure flap protecting the microUSB port from water and dust hazards. This doesn't mean Sony ditched protection against the elements - that would be illogical considering the company turned it into a distinguished feature of its products. More likely, it found a more elegant way to protect the hardware.

So, there you go - enjoy these photos and brace yourselves for the Xperia Z4 launch. The smartphone has been leaking left and right recently, so a reveal before the end of summer seems quite possible. Moreover, it seems US (un)carrier T-Mobile has pulled the Sony Xperia Z3 off its online store - and if we speculate for reasons, it could only be lack of demand, an upcoming Sony flagship launch, or something inbetween..

As long as the camera issue are fixed they'll be just fine. Same battery life, SD slot, improved speakers and 32 gb minimum internal memory not to mention they've already remove the flap at the usb port while maintaining ip certification. Also make sure they advertise it and have it available globally.

it's a phenomenal design.. i wish phones would be able to use the same design language for the same line of phones for more than two years before people pick up pitch forks.. why do you need the next phone in a series to look so drastically different? if they wanted to change the style of the phone so much wouldn't they make it in another series? i always figured that the xperia z 1-4 would look pretty similar because they're all called Sony Xperia Z _... right?

i agree there needs to be more variety.. but i wouldn't want my z4 to look SO different from my z3 that i've known and loved for so many months.. although if they made an imperium (for example) named series.. then THAT could have a totally different design languange.. right?

HTC is in love with bezels. Married them since birth. It looks like they have decided to die with the Bezels. Long life HTC and Bezels.

the Xperia E is the worst one to make your point... that one is a low end device where slim bezels are not top priority.....
For your information, both the Xperia Z3 and the Z3 Compact have a better screen-to-body ratio than the Nexus 4 (70% > 68%)

omg yes!!!! +1,000,000,000 for this comment!!!! i wish it was more acceptable for OEM's to have a 'signature' design instead of everyone taking up arms becaues they refined their design three years instead of two..

and yes... i AM an HTC fan still... thank you very much. :p

Ditching the magnetic charging port is forgivable if Z4 will support waterproof USB type c port or fast charging module, otherwise it will be the same disappointment to those holding their money till this announced.

40. buccob (Posts: 2564; Member since: 19 Jun 2012)


To me it is not forgivable... I recently bought some adapters for the magnetic port, and my Car Stereo also charge my Xperia through that port...

I already got used to the idea of using an MHL adapter (recently acquired) in lue of the old trusty microHDMI that I always had... and now I have to give up another port, most probably for wireless charging, not even USB type C

I don't mind about the minor design change that Sony made in this phone, since this is coming from a Xperia Z owner. Just give me great camera, great speakers, great screen, same or better battery life (2 days or more), faster charging speed, SD card slot then you can take my money.

If it disappoints, I might go for Huawei P8 this time.

You don't mind about the minor changes from Sony, but you kept shouting on every HTC M9 article for implementing the same design.
Please, be modest

If the Design awards keep raining on them, Sony won't have much interest in moving away from Omnibalance. Surface finish on the metal frame looks beautiful though. Looks like it's using the same camera sensor (or at least there's a better ISP with phase detection autofocus hopefully)

Why Sony never consider OIS?
I never use a Xperia phone, but always wanted.
Looking forward to Z4.
Many reviews show that Z3 has poor, noisy night/ low light photo.
Their attempt is to raise ISO which in turn create noisy photo.
Why they never thought of adding OIS to slow the shutter speed?
Just my humble opinion.

USB flap is always my concern because many people claiming that Sony is using this reason to avoid warranty for water damage. It is now solved like M4 Aqua and Z4 tablet.

If Sony really have OIS on Z4. I am sure I will go for it.

Just FYI.. if the flap falls off and you lose it they will send you a new one for free.

I love how people whine and moan about the bezel on Sony phones in general, yet the Z3 has a higher screen to body ratio than the S6.

How boring. Looks just like the Z3. The top and bottom bezels are too big for my liking.
Good luck Sony.

FFS I hate when companies make good overall products but still make some horrible decisions.

I'm sick of large bezels on the top and bottom, it makes the phone unnecessarily larger and that's the last thing I want.

Also navigation buttons should never be on the screen because they take up valuable screen space.

I always blame Samsung for maintaining same design scheme.
But after the release of M9, and seeing the leaked pics of Z4, I've changed my perception.

I really don't like the plastic frame. It looks really cheap, not appropriate for a flagship. I like my Z3C's TRANSLUCENT frame being made of plastic. It looks so beautiful. But this time, the Z4 frame made of plastic ruins its design. Is that what SONY wants Z4 to be...? seriously? Z2 and Z3 look way much beautiful. I DO hope these leaked pics aren't real
