Another day, another Sony Xperia Z4 camera sample leak - just look at those natural colors!
Another day, another Sony Xperia Z4 leak sprouts. Whoever is the lucky person wielding it, they are surely enjoying the hot-shot Sony flagship in the great outdoors, snapping photos of the gorgeous nature. Joy like this definitely has to be shared, which is why we have two more snapshots taken with the Xperia Z4 to show you after the first one that leaked a few days ago

The Z4 seems rather promising in the camera department - it is equipped with a 20MP cam sensor which doesn't present a more impressive case than the Samsung Galaxy S6 & edge do when it comes to fine detail, but makes up for that with remarkably natural colors. That's pretty nice considering the Xperia Z4 most likely runs pre-production software.

Once again, the photos are sized an ample 5,248 x 3,936 pixels, which corresponds to 20MP resolution and makes for huge ~10MB images. So prepare your internet connection for a grueling workout and proceed to the gallery below, where the awesomeness awaits. Zoom in, scroll around, check out the details, and tell us what you think in the comments!

Is it only me or there's really purple hue in both photos?

You are correct . First thing I noticed was purple fringe going on. Can't believe this article is named "just look at those natural colours " .

Another day, another look at those purple hues on a "leaked" Z4 camera picture.

I see it as well although I see more of blue haze. Cell phones do usually do well with landscapes, but this is nothing impressive imo.

Look a bit overexposed too, just not as bad as Z1-3

slight touch of purple hopefully the final software build will fix that.

Camera samples leaks each year get boring. Waiting for a real review instead or even a fixed announce date.

Can't trust Sony's phone camera

Sony's sensors are used in almost every current top smartphone (including the Galaxy S6 and the iPhone 6).

Even in High end Nikon DSLR & Sony Mirrorless (ofc) (The 5ds & the r is rumoured to use sony sensor, but probably not.)

And yet they are making better photos than Sony's own smartphones.

You can have a great sensor but in the end that's all it is a sensor.! If the phone doesn't process what the sensor captures correctly then it doesn't matter what kind of sensor the hone has really. That's where phones that captures great looking photos come in. Iphone, S6 yes they use sony sensors but they do a much much better jb at processing what the sensor captures then sony does. They sure can make a great photo sensor, but what they lack in is in the way thier phones process that information. They make great dslr's and mirror less cameras but in the smartphone world thier just ok.

Sony didn't make them. They have sony sensors and that's about it. They process thier images much much better then any Sony phone.

Horrible ! The same and the same ... Look the foliage at 100% crop ! Please Sony improve your SW.

This is the pre-release device. So I won't bash Sony but that purple fringing suggests poor lens.

Never understood the Natural or accurate color statements. You can't tell how accurate or natural the color is without some kind of reference.

The problem is not only the color , the pictures are over-processed and unnatural. Download them and open with the paint program and see the real photo. Sony has a lot to do in SW !

I call bs, probably z3. If not, I'm kinda Dissepointed. Decent absolutely, but not great.

"..but makes up for that with remarkably natural colors." PA, have you seen the actual place to say that the photo has natural color??

I love my Z2, and I'm sure I'll like Z4, but Sony still hasn't learned to do it's noise reduction the right way. All their pictures look like a Monet painting when you zoom in. Even the small Sony point and shoot camera I have suffer from this issue. They just need to license proper noise reduction algorithms from Canon or someone else...

Its all about low light & night time photos, virtually all camera phones over the last 3 years can take good to very good strong light daylight photos.
