This morning, some photos were leaked that show off the LCD Touch Digitizer for the Sony Xperia Z4, and compare it with the same part belonging to the Sony Xperia Z3. There have been some changes made. On the top, the speaker has been moved to the edge, while the front-facing camera and proximity sensor have swapped positions. And on the bottom, the speaker has also moved to the edge.
No doubt that this will not be the last leak out of Sony's camp in reference to the Xperia Z4. Despite previous attempts by Sony to guard against such things, information about its new flagship models still seems to escape. You can check out the latest leak by clicking on the slideshow below.
Thanks for the tip!

Goddamn these 2k displays. Very unnecessary. And a great way to make money for these companies.

I'm not into qhd as well what I'm interested is how will the 4gb ram will work together with 810, recently smart phone innovation slow down. In terms of pricing in our region Sony is just right.

I'm interested with QHD, 3 to 4 GB RAM, well-optimized processor and better battery life regardless the OEM brands. I love big display screens with QHD in my opinion. Text is so dense, it has life-like effect and a compact TV in my palm. Touch digitizer screen? similar to GALAXY Note 4? I have this feeling Sony will have it's own stylus also. :3

Well people, doesn't mean that bigger is better. I dont know with their eyes, 1080p is the most optimal resolution in mobile phones, even 720p is good. What the hell do they need 2K or 4K in phones? I dont know any media that gives 4K viewing at this time.

I originally would have thought similar but after seeing a 2k video running on a galaxy note 4 in my store i can categorically say you really can see the difference between the 1080 and 2k even on a phone screen. Customers we've shown the demo to all have been amazed by the difference.

What the hell are you talking about? The Xperia Z, Z1, Z2, Z3 all used 1080p and the consumer saved nothing. If the Z4 used a 1080p screen, do you think they would pass on the savings to us? No, so if they feel its necessary to spend some of their profits on us to keep our sale by including a 2k screen, that's great. Or would you rather Android OEMs pull an Apple and charge us 10gb of ram, 4k display, 100 core prices for 1gb of ram, 750p display, and dual core just because their software is light and closed enough to run well on anything? It's unfortunate that Apple created this situation for us but that's how it is. The Z4 will be $599-$699 regardless of the tech being used. Might as well take what we can get and take the 2k display.

You are right I do have weak eyes and I need glasses to see things which are necessary to see, but I would I wear glasses to see what I hate. I am not saying that 2k disply is not any better than 1080p. I have compared Note 4 display with that of S5 and found display of Note 4 to a lot beautiful and crisp than that of S5. My point is there is no pixelation visible on display of S5 and I have no desire to see pixels.

"The Z4 will be $599-$699 regardless of the tech being used." You are an economics ignorant. Maintaining that price for a QHD device is a manufacturer suicide. It isn't like you just glue the display on the device, you have to optimize your software & battery, make R&D research on how well apps would run on such display, test every performance from zero and enumerate new software standards. More adjustments, more expenses. Try googling complains of apps not running on LG G3, Samsung S5, it will be worth it.

I like my Z3 compact but if Sony's gonna implement this stupid QHD display on Z4, they just lost a follower. They tell people to demand great? Then I demand they focus on other hardware development such as 64GB storage, battery and placing cybershot on the Xperias permanently. I am already happy with full HD and QHD will just give more battery hogging on my phone.

in the 4th pic, you can see a cut-out for the speaker on the bottom side, just like the top.

Xperia Z4 will be a quite beast i hereby tell you that Xperia Z4 will be the best 2015 phone in terms of battery life, performance and sales. But first, let's see some more galaxy S6 leaks
