Another Sony Xperia Z4 render shows up, larger front-facing speakers visible

Another Sony Xperia Z4 render shows up, larger front-facing speakers visible
Later this year, when Sony will officially announce the Xperia Z4 (the smartphone, not the tablet, which was announced in March), there might be little to no secrets left for the company to reveal. That's because we've already seen live photos of the Z4, while also hearing quite a lot about its alleged features. On top of it all, we can now take a look at a new Xperia Z4 render, which shows a device that isn't different from the one that was previously unveiled (thus being relatively similar to its predecessor, the Xperia Z3).

Compared to the Z3, the Xperia Z4 has larger front-facing speakers, but that's the only meaningful change (at least on the front side). The new Z4 render can be seen in the slideshow below, alongside some previously leaked photos. It's said that Sony will release 1080p and Quad HD versions of the Z4, both likely sporting 5.2-inch displays. Other features are expected to include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, a 20.7 MP rear camera (early sample images can be seen here and here), a 5 MP front-facing camera, and 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM.

An Xperia Z4 Compact and an Xperia Z4 Ultra may also be in the making, but it's not clear if Sony is planning to announce them at the same time with the regular Z4. Whatever happens, we'll be here to let you know.

I really hope so... It really sucks for Sony bc the exchange rate is what kills them when they try to sell phones internationally. They make great phones but their marketing is never the best. They need to stop making ad that seems like gears toward the 1%. Anyway, Z4 looks like Z2 and Z3 hybrid. It'll be a great phone nonetheless.

Sony is going the same way as HTC. Will never learn nor innovate from what they already have. They already have a good design, camera and all. But they are not evolving much from it. Just a minor update here and there and they release a flagship based on these small updates. There is nothing unique in these phones anymore. Both htc and sony should start from scratch like samsung's "PROJECT ZERO". I really want sony and htc to bounce back with all their might.

Yes it is, however it could pass for the Xperia Z from a quick glance :)

Sony..Use your big minds from the Alpha or PRO team to fix your smartphone camera software...SERIOUSLY! -_-

I don't care if the design is the same, just ad better hardware and software, and optimize the battery and camera and i am happy.

Quick vote. ...who will win the "Battle Of The Bezels" ? Apple, HTC or Sony?

Or Samsung who have joined the big bezel party with the S6. Unlike you guys, companies don't seem to put any longer value on thin bezels.

sony should learn how to make another phone with a bit curved and friendly to hold just like xperia ARC S.

Company's put big bezels because with thin bezels there is a higher chance of cracking the screen as when the phone drops sideways the thin bezels won't be able to protect the screen much.

I mean, Sony has thinner bezels than HTC, Samsung, and Apple, but that's none of my business. I forgot numbers lied.

Love the z2 style speaker slits, very stylish. Don't like glossy finish metal frame. Looks plastic.

Same here, the Z2's grills were much prettier than the Z3's. I also wish the Z4 would go back to the frame design of the Z1. The aluminum on the slightly rounded part and the flat part in the middle made a nice contrast.

The bezel isn't that bad. It is smaller than the S6.

That's the thing, Z4 will be almost the same size as the S6 except have .1" larger screen. But zealots, will be happy to move the goal posts and use the note4 to compare, even though the note4 is in all practicality not even in the same class of body.

Look at screen to size ratios of Z3 and other phones like iPhone 6, S5, etc. You will realize how ignorant you are.

And even S6.Z3 has better screen to body ratio than trolls beloved S6

It's not huge if you see the actual Xperia devices. And you won't notice it the time you're too busy with what your doing to your phone.

Samsung king of bezel. Much more worse than sony. Samsung doesn't have waterproof, stereo speakers, smaller camera sensor but still have huge-ass bezelsssss

36. mixedfish

Nah king of bezels is HTC: fat and heavy body, 5" screen when they could fit 5.2", small camera sensor and no water resistance. However Samsung has been getting free kicks from zealots lately, so they're not too far off.

not learning. really why are 'bezels' the main (sometimes ONLY) thing people have against any phone announced in 2015?? when did this even start? there IS functionality behind those.. it's just just extra wasted space..
