Sony Xperia Z4 is available starting today (in Japan) alongside an update solving speaker issues
Officially announced in April, the Sony Xperia Z4 is, starting today, available to buy in Japan. NTT docomo is the first carrier to offer the new smartphone, asking about $745 for it. NTT docomo is already pushing a software update to the Z4, which seemingly fixes a speaker volume issue.

As you may know, the Z4 won't be released outside of Japan under this name. Sony renamed the global version of its new water-resistant flagship to Xperia Z3+ - a logical move, since the device isn't too different from last year's Xperia Z3.

While the Z4 can now be bought in Japan, we don't have an exact release date for the Xperia Z3+. However, Sony said that the Z3+ should be launched around the world starting the next few months, probably for around $600.

The Xperia Z4 / Z3+ is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, and is a bit thinner than the Z3, measuring 146.3 x 71.9 x 6.9 mm. Other features include Android Lollipop, a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a 5 MP front-facing camera, 20.7 MP rear camera, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2930 mAh battery.

Do you plan to buy the Xperia Z4 / Z3+? Or do you think it's better to wait for Sony's next flagship smartphone (which might be called Xperia Z5)?
