New images of Sony Xperia Z4 are leaked

New images of Sony Xperia Z4 are leaked
Just a few days after the FCC received a visit from a phone that very well could have been the Sony Xperia Z4, pictures of Sony's upcoming flagship phone have been leaked. The E6553 model pictured is the same handset that recently ran through the GFXBench site. Considering that the benchmark test and the photos show that the E6553 is powered by the Snapdragon 810, there is a very good chance that this model is indeed the Xperia Z4.

From the pictures, we can tell that once again Sony will resort to using a 20.7MP snapper on the back of the device. And it would appear that the back will once again be made of glass.

The Sony Xperia Z4 is expected to come with a 5.1-inch screen carrying a resolution of 1080 x 1920. That combination results in a pixel density of 432ppi. The 64-bit octa-core 1.9GHz Snapdragon 810 CPU powers the handset as previously noted, and the Adreno 430 GPU will be handling graphics. 3GB of RAM is said to be on board along with 32GB of native storage (of which 23GB is available to the user).

The FCC documentation shows that there will be a microSD slot on the device. We've already covered the camera on the back of the phone and we expect a 5MP snapper on front for selfies and video chat. The Xperia Z4 is IP68 certified which means that it can be submerged to a depth of 4.9 feet for as long as 30 minutes without being damaged. The 3400mAh battery should provide long battery life for the unit, which will have Android 5.0 pre-installed.

It would seem that with each leak, we are getting closer to the unveiling of the Sony's next flagship handset.

It's funny to me that people keep giving Samsung crap because the 32GB version of the S6 has 23GB useable when the M9 & the Z4 have the same. Hypocrite on.

s6 without sd card .. z4 and m9 with sd card .. thats the diff .. come to me baby z4 ..

I won't argue with that, but the fact of the matter is that most people don't even use 16GB. The usage trends for people who frequent a tech website do not represent that of the general public.

Don't defend OEM's with their own rhetoric.

25. g2a5b0e unregistered

It's not rhetoric. It's a fact. Deal with it. Most of my friends barely use the "smart" features of their smartphones. Even I, being the lover of tech that I am, have never gone over 16GB on a phone. Your vision is skewed. 99% of people don't post on tech websites.

Maybe for you, but for me, I have already used the 17gb of the phone's internal storage and that expandable storage is definitely a big deal for me.

61. g2a5b0e unregistered

And that's perfectly fine. I wasn't trying to place my belief on anyone else. I clearly said most people, not all.

That looks like Z3 with lollipop update.

No idea what that has to do with my comment.

Haha. My music collection itself crosses 16GB. Not to forget pics and videos. Why would people even buy a camera phone.

You are using anecdotes. Most people may not care about expandable storage but those of us that care will use it.

95. g2a5b0e unregistered

I fail to understand your point. You pretty much just said the same thing I did.

Than why did you bother stating the first comment since the only people who talk about available memory are the tech community, which you just said are a low percentage of all the users? What are you complaining about than? Oh that's right you were just trying to defend the S6 on a Z4 article by blaming other people, than you got proved wrong. Feel bad for the Samsung fans, the S6 really screwed them over.

115. g2a5b0e unregistered

I didn't get proven wrong at all, but if it makes you happy to think so, please continue to. The S6 isn't screwing anyone over, but once again, if it makes you happy, believe it.

Unlike htc and Sony they have sd card slot. Samsung flagship doesn't have although the active version maybe different. I'll still wait on September to have the real spec's and design of Z4. It's gonna be a make or break for Sony. They started good with M4 aqua and the new advertisement of Z3.

For me S6 Edge with 64gb (since 128gb won't be available in my country) = problem solved. I let people argueing about their microsd slot (i was a S5 16gb + 64gb microsd user).

If you truly didn't care, then why are you here? Yep, continue to drink that Kool Aid.

Yes, but both the Z4 and the M9 have 2 things working against them: 1. No UFS 2.0, meaning their UI speed is worse than the iPhone 6. The S6 is the only phone faster than the iPhone 6 in-terms of real-world usage. 2. SD 810 will kill battery life and make the phone slower than their previous versions. Look at this video:

I won't buy s6 because there Is no micro sd and now the damn z4 has sd810 I'll it seems 2015 won't have the perfect smart phone. I'll wait for note 5 I hope that at least note will have micro sd.

There is no other equally powerful SoC on the market right now (Samsung won't sell their 7420 in the near future).

What is the capacity of your SD card? If it is 64GB, then the 128GB S6 would fulfil your needs. Current phones with expandable storage comes in either 16 or 32 GB, which means even when your SD card is inserted, your max capacity would be 80 to 96 GB.

EXCEPT that samsung and HTC have no mico SD slot :-/

29. g2a5b0e unregistered

EXCEPT that HTC actually does & 2 people have already mentioned it. In addition, I already responded. Pay attention before you post.

S6 has about 26 GB usable if you have the international version, 24.5 GB for T-mobile. IDK about 23 GB.

It's what was reported in an article in a few weeks ago. Strengthens my point I suppose.

Testing samples (unlocked phones) have about 23.5GB of usable space.

Yep...especially the camera software for xperia lines is vey bad and their boring design

63. g2a5b0e unregistered

That has nothing to do with my post, but good for you.

I actually like the Xperia camera software, augmented reality in specific. They could do a better job post rendering shots, but hopefully they will take advantage of Camera API 2 and show us what that IMX240 can do!

They won't use IMX240 in neither Z4 nor Z5..
