Sony Xperia Z4 press render leaks, how long can it be before Sony announces its flagship?

Sony Xperia Z4 press render leaks, how long can it be before Sony announces its flagship?
The Sony Xperia Z4 is still unannounced, but it barely leaves anything to the imagination at this point, as all the renders, photos, and camera samples you need have leaked already. Today, we have another item to add to the collection - a fine Xperia Z4 press render that looks as official as press renders get!

Sourced from the Sony Georgia Facebook page, the image shows the upcoming flagship running Android Lollipop topped off with the Sony Xperia UI. The smartphone's design matches that from previous leaked imagery, making it rather obvious that Sony isn't pulling off any surprises in this direction with its fourth-generation Android flagship.

Then again, the Xperia Z4 is a total looker, and with a Snapdragon 810 SoC roaring inside, paired with an ample amount of RAM, a 20.7MP main camera, and a 5.2-inch screen that may or may not climb to 1440p resolution, this phone is the bomb!

With so many leaks sprouting from tech blogs all over the world, it doesn't look like Sony will be holding off the Xperia Z4 launch much longer. While you are waiting in anticipation, feel free to power through our Xperia Z4 rumor round-up where you can check out the rest of the renders, photos, and camera samples.

They already tweaked the UI. New icons New style with material design Smooth animations What else do you want? I'd rather see they change the UI slowly and not rush like LG's UX 4.0 that will be used on the LG G4, LG made it look like Alcatel.

Running for three days now Lollipop on my Z2. I'm so impressed. It's nearly stock Android and completely devoid of any bugs whatsoever. Even the two annoying bugs from the previous Kit Kat build (low speaker volume and lack of double-tap-to-wake sensitivity) are now no more!!! I'm very proud of Sony. They delayed the release but the offered a Lollipop update, completely devoid of any bugs and fresh like stock Lollipop. I feel like I'm having a brand new, perfectly functioning smartphone. My faith in Sony is restored.

Deja vu everywhere...Now, I know "if it ain't broken, don't fix it", but I seriously hope the Z4 will offer something unique.

How do we know it ain't broken? Didn't Sony have terrible sales figures? But to be fair its sales problems are more because of a management and marketing issues The Z3's design does look great And its design is only about 6 months old For design, I'd just like Sony to to slim down the top/bottom bezels and add a fingerprint reader somewhere

I agree with you mostly so +1 for that except for finger print scanner and the fact that although Z3 didn't see sales as spectacular as SS and apple, it still did much better than Z1 & Z2. But I totally agree with your point regarding marketing. However, its easier said than done. Take these reviewers for example they make anything else than SS and Apple look like crap with nothing special to offer which is obviously by far not true specially if you take into account the price factor. Any way facts are facts & Sony really needs to up their game in terms of marketing and market presence. They have improved but they really really need to push harder and that is possible if they make it a point that "quitting is not an option" (Contrary to what we've been hearing from Sony's top management earlier).

It seems only Samsung releases new flagship in 2015.

They have no choice, their designs had been criticized badly, S5 looks like an ugly piece of plastic band-aid. I give them credit for changing the design this time, but sadly they still made some sacrifices for the new design.

Every phone has design sacrifices. It seems like no phone has removable battery now. Sony and HTC have microSD but they lack fingerprint scanners of Samsung and Apple. Always remember, you can't have unibody and removable battery.

You're right, but they shouldn't have ditched the micro SD card slot and put in a smaller battery. Btw, the battery in the S6 is still removable, but it's more troublesome.

microSD ignored because it's a choice, not a sacrifice. Ss can make dual-sim S6, means there is space for a microsSD card. Ditching microSD card gives better performance and better average price for higher memory versions also.

Wow, I never expected that this image would spread so fast. This image actually came from me, I posted this it in the xda forums, where I got it though, is a big secret :)

I have a question. I'm a nice guy in college. I keep my journals, notes up to date. The problem is, others don't complete them and thus ask me to send them photos of the journals/notes at the eleventh hour (via whatsapp etc.), which is very distracting, and wastes a lot of my time. What do i do?

You came to the wrong place to ask this kind of question. But don't be such a "nice" guy, or else they will rely on you more in the future. It's not worth it.

Throttled Snapdragon 810 + Mediocre camera + Feature less UI + Huge ass bezels = Xperia Z4.

So much lies in one sentence, you even make politicians blush.

Sony needed Exynos this time to get more sales.

Just give me better better audio, better image quality (faster ISP for full resolution superior auto/HDR and mature processing FOR ONCE) and faster autofocus, a better (calibrated) display. Gimp the SD810 (disable two A57 cores for most situations or something). Or fix it if possible!

That's what everyone says, but look at what happens to the HTC One M9

Well if they want to have any success in the US they need to make the phone available to more carriers and market the heck out of the thing. The Z3 is a really nice device and I'm a little sad that T-mobile has discontinued it already. I really don't have much to complain about even the camera shortcomings aren't as bad as comparisons show. But I would not buy anything from Sony again unless they proved a little more serious about really contending for the attention and sales they deserve. Still waiting for Lollipop on my Z3. Who knows how long they'll support it after.

Phone looks great. I don't want to wait 6 months though.... Trying to hold off on the S6 to see this.
