The likes of Samsung, Huawei, and Apple all choose to upgrade their flagship smartphones once per year. But when it comes to Sony, a new flagship model appears every six months. And today, after its design was revealed last week, the spec sheet of the upcoming Sony Xperia XZ4 has leaked out online.

As expected from most 2019 flagships, the Xperia XZ4 will arrive powered by Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 855. This chip won’t be unveiled until later on today but a premature posting revealed that it will be manufactured on the 7nm processor. It can also be combined with the Snapdragon X50 modem for 5G network support.

In regards to other details, the smartphone will reportedly come equipped with 6GB of RAM. This will then be combined with either 64GB or 256GB of internal storage depending on the model purchased. Furthermore, much like the Xperia XZ3 the upcoming Xperia XZ4 will arrive with Android 9 Pie straight out of the box. The flagship is also said to include a respectable 3,900mAh battery.

On the external side of things, Sony looks set to swap out the Xperia XZ3's 18:9 5.8-inch curved edge AMOLED display for a significantly taller 21:9 flat panel that sits at 6.55-inches in size. According to the information, this will be manufactured by LG.

Although Sony hasn’t yet confirmed the existence of the Xperia XZ4, the smartphone will most likely make its debut in late February at MWC, just like previous-generation Sony flagships.

Lies! Almost all OEMs update their flagship line twice a year: - Samsung - H1 with S series, H2 - Note, - Huawei - H1 - Pro, H2 - Mate (not counting Honor devices), - LG - G and V. And Sony didn't do it in 2017 - we had XZ1, smaller XZ1 Compac and bigger XZ Premium, but it was one family, not two... Learn to count!

Those are different flagship lines that target different consumers. There is one Galaxy S update per year, and one Galaxy Note update per year. Sony updates the same series twice per year. Which is what I was referring to. Secondly, regarding Sony, the Xperia XZ launched in September 2016, it was then followed by the Xperia XZs in early 2017 and the Xperia XZ1 in September 2017. So yes, Sony did do it in 2017.

There used to be a clear distinction between spring and autumn flagships from other companies but now, apart from the Note series which it somehow distinguishes itself with the stylus and productivity, all other flagships are really just the spring and autumn model, just with different marketing names. At least Sony is a bit honest about it and doesn't invent different series to just cover up the "two releases per year" pattern.

Then Sony does it four times going by your skewed logic, they have the XZ2, XZ2 Premium, XZ3, and we will definitely get the XZ3 Premium soon.

Not true. The premium line comes once a year. Z5p, xzp, xz2p

XZ1 was announced in August 2017 XZ2 January 2018 XZ2 Premium April 2018 XZ3 August 2018 That's still 4 flagships in one year. Now go correct someone else.

Better read the comments before you react. "we will definitely get the XZ3 Premium soon" So when will the xz3 premium come out? The premium version comes out ones a year so it should be the xz4 premium My comment still stands. Next time try to be a smartass when you've double checked

You will get 256 GB too! :D

256GB internal storage is so 2017! Right now. 512GB internal storage is a must for 2018-2019 smartphones!

All manufacturers should stop putting 64 GB storage to their flahsgips, even in the 2019...

Disagree. 64GB is more than enough for me, so if it keeps the price down, I'm all for it. You still have the option to buy a higher capacity, so why do you even care?

Why do we care? You seriously asking? Because other manufacturers for the same price (or less) of xz4 in 64gb storage will offer their flag in base 256gb or more base storage in 2019, Sherlock.

hi fortune teller, its great to know you exactly know the prices and storage options of upcoming 2019 devices and can jump straight into conclusions like a professional skydiver we dont need more expensive phones, yikes dude. just because they would cut the 64gb version out wouldnt mean 256gb would suddenly and magically be less expensive. what kind of thinking is this? ?? ?? yeah we're complaining about skyrocketing prices on phones nowadays, lets just give these guys a greenlight to make the prices go up into the orbit and straight up in my ass.

Basically, what you're saying is "you should pay more money for an option you don't need even though the option I want is already available" & then on top of that, you're an *ssh*le about it. Good job.

"More than enough for me, so more than enough for everybody".

That's the logic of Sony's fanboys. Whatever Sony tells them, they'll agree with zero arguments. Kinda like when they were told 2gb of rams is more than enough, or 1080 screens is just fine while also telling them 4k screens makes sense on a smartphone, or one camera is more than enough as well, and now 64gb of storage. They don't get it why Sony is losing it's market share year in year out, it's simply because of this, act arrogant and refuse to match what your competition is offering. What sucks is that when Sony finally catches up with their competition, they usually comes on top with that. Their first 2k OLED screen is as gorgeous as Samsung's screens. Their 1st dual camera setup on the XZ2P is highly underrated and imo the best lowlight camera smartphone. Them jumping to 4gb of ram gave us one of the smoothest and most stable smartphones. Their battery life is already very good, but I can bet my money on this, that Sony will be the 1st to give us a 3 day smartphone if they dropped a 4000 mah in the XZ3P. Sony fans just need to stop being delusional and accept the fact that Sony is always late in adopting the new trends all major OEMs are going with, especially when they price their phones at the same bracket as Samsung and Apple does.

If you're trying call me a Sony fanboy, you posted for nothing because I've never owned a Sony device in my life. Slow your roll. I'm not accepting what anyone tells me. I know what my needs are. Simple as that.

Owning or not owning a device has nothing to do with fanboyism. It's your behaviour related to the company.

22. AngelicusMaximus

Right, so me wanting to a 64GB phone so I'm not overpaying for storage I don't need makes me a fanboy. Got it.

Firstly, I didn't call u a fanboy. So don't put the blame on me. Secondly, are ypu stupid or something? Behaviour doesn't only mean that you buy something. It also means how you behave when someone brings up sony or any company for that matter. You act in ur comment no.8 as if you definitely want sony to not put more than 64GB base storage in their 900+$ flagship....just because 'you' think it's enough! That's stupidity. Stop leveraging brands to provide less.

It's funny how people on the internet love to be rude under the guise of anonymity. You wouldn't talk to me or anybody like that in person. Keep your keyboard warrior bulls**t up though. I'm sure it makes you feel great about yourself.

Wait, so you don't have a proper reply to me rather than being a crybaby snowflake?? That means you accepted I am right! Nice.

19. AngelicusMaximus

That's not at all what I'm saying so don't put words in my mouth. It's not like there aren't higher capacity versions available for you to buy.
