Based on a Geekbench benchmark test, the Sony Xperia Z4 will be another flagship model powered by the 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 CPU. On Monday, we told you about the small differences between the positioning of certain hardware keys and sensors on the Sony Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z4. We also mentioned that the rear camera will employ Sony's new IMX230 sensor which will have 192 AutoFocus points for blur-free tracking of fast moving objects. It also allows the camera to produce real-time HDR images so you can see how the melded images will turn out before you snap the shutter.
Sony had been churning out a new flagship model every six months, but decided on a slower approach for the Sony Xperia Z4. It could be the summer months before the phone is unveiled.
Thanks for the tip!

But yeah, with waterproof and stereo speakers, those bezels aren't that big imo, and i honestly don't think they are that big. Sony did manage to slim down the bezels of the Z3, and for me, as long as the side bezels are slim, i don't have any issues with the top and bottom ones.

The bezels in the pictures are exaggerated because this is just some cheap Chinese case company that threw together a picture of what they think the Z4 will look like and placed it in the case for demonstration purposes. I've seen this a dozen times too many to know that this is NOT what you can expect the final product to look like. Biggest example of what I mean: if you look closely at the Google Play Store app icon, you will see that the bag still has a rounded handle to it. In the latest Android 5.0 build, the Play store icon has a squared off handle instead. Also, Sony is replacing it's Walkman app with just a straight up "Music" application instead. Most likely what happened here was they took the Sony Z3 and enlarged the sides to make it fit the dimensions of the Z4.

Sony phones are not appealing at all.. I'm yet to see at least 1 person who owns this bs. Man, it looks like they don't try at all. Sony's design team: "It's pretty close to looking like an iPhone... Don't you think?"..."yeah... it will definitely sell".... 6 months later... News headlines: "Sony taking another lost in Q2, and looks to be heading in the same direction in Q3"

HTC have been using the same design. Samsung and Apple too. Looks like Sony's effort paid off.http://www.phonearena.com/news

What are you talking about? Samsung just underwent a major redesign with the S6 and the Note 4 is pretty damn amazingly well designed. I'm not a fan but they are changing their phones. HTC actually has arguably the best design for phones on the market, while I was disappointed that the M9 doesn't look like the initial concept renders with the slim speakers I really can't fault them with sticking to an awesome design. Finally, I'm not sure where the 12 million xperia z3s are, I've yet to see one in the wild. The only thing I keep hearing about their phones is how they can't get the camera properly working in full auto mode.

If you live in North America, of course you won't see the Z3. I don't see HTCs here in the far East. Perhaps that's why HTC stopped publishing their (embarrassing) sales figures some time back. The Z3 actually has arguably the best design for phones on the market, there's no need to change something that's alrd awesome.
