Alleged Xperia Z4 screens peg the phone with a 5.2" display diagonal, upgraded chipset

phone is shown to have a 5.2" 1080p display, apparently in response to the wild rumors about a 5.4" Quad HD Triluminos display, or the 5.5" one we heard about before. The presentation had the word "battery" misspelled a bit, though, so we dismissed it, despite the fact that these internal docs are often riddled with typos, especially if English is not the native language of their creators.First, a fairly aggravated Sony insider sent us a screenshot from what they claim is an internal presentation about the Z4, where the
Now, however, from the source that leaked some iPhone 6 schematics before, and a few other tips, comes a leak about the Xperia Z4 that claims the same screen diagonal. These are allegedly screenshots from computers in a Sony lab, and the handset is apparently shaping up to have a 5.2" display, just like the Z3. The jury is still out on the resolution, though, as the new leak pegs it at Quad HD again, but it will definitely up the ante in the processing department, it seems. Our first source, however, said that the handset will be laden with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 chipset, while here it is listed with 805, like the one in the Note 4. We find 810 harder to believe, given that the Xperia Z4 will likely be making a cameo in less than a month, at the CES expo in Las Vegas. In any case, we'll be there, and will let you know firsthand how it all pans out.
What we are more curious about, though, is the alleged new 21 MP Exmor IMX230 camera sensor, as so far Sony's flagships have failed to occupy the top of our camera comparisons. If Sony manages to pull an excellent camera performance in all situations this time, and when we add the company's renowned record battery life for the category, the Z4 might be one of the best Androids to get early next year.
Thanks for the tips!

a 1080p screen coupled with snapdragon 805 chipset---- then this phone will be blazing fast, not to mention outstanding battery life.

I hope that HTV and Sony won't jump to the 2k wagon, because I was convinced that 1080 was enough and got even convinced about it when i got my Note 4. I honestly don't see any difference between my panel and the one found on my wife's m8. Imagine how superior the battery life would've been on the Note 4 if Samsung went with 1080 instead of 2k!! Not that it's not great already, but going 3-4 days without charging it would've been nice. My only grip on HTC and Sony is that they could give us a true 5.2" and 5" screen by getting rid of the on screen buttons and going back to the old good capacitive buttons. That's my opinion though.

Based on horizontal resolution, FHD 1920x1080 is just short of 2K and 3840x2160 is just shy of 4K. I think they should just forget the confusing K ratings and call it HD, Full HD, and Ultra HD. Which would make Quad HD 2560x1440 neither 2K nor 4K.

the first photo looks weird :s the white "Z4" is shorter than the 2 black ones behind it and the bezel of the black one on the left is smaller than the right's? don't tell me it's because of the perspective because we are obviously looking at them head-on btw 2 difference info in one article it's making me dizzy I hope Sony stick with the 5,2 inch fullHD and Snapdragon 810 because quadHD on a 5-6 inch LCD IPS panel is just a waste

1. Samsung, HTC release phones every 3-4months but don't call them 'flagships', is that better? 2. Where is there a Z3 for $1000? I want that super premium phone, Sony only sells me standard $700 stuff.

I think there will be 2 versions of Z4. 1. S810 + 4gb ram + 5.5" QHD 2. S805 + 3gb ram + 5.2" FHD

Between HTC and Sony, I'm really hoping for restraint on the screen resolution front. Because both companies had great battery life this year, and I would rather see further advances in battery life than barely perceivable pixel density. And 5.2" is plenty big for a phone (not a phablet). Quad HD has its place, don't get me wrong, but not below 5.5".
