The same, but better - even more Sony Xperia Z4 photos show up for your viewing pleasure

The same, but better - even more Sony Xperia Z4 photos show up for your viewing pleasure
We got our hands on yet another set of leaked photos showing what appears to be the Sony Xperia Z4. Assuming this is the real deal - and we are 99% sure, because the model number in the second pic reads E6553 and corresponds to the Z4 - then this is another supremely sleek smartphone from Sony, even if its quality design feels all too familiar at this point. Then again, this is arguably the best a Xperia smartphone has ever looked, so no complaints here! 

According to the ones who passed along the photos, the Xperia Z4 will be released in 1080p and 1440p screen resolution variants, both featuring a display diagonal of 5.2 inches. It is also said that both will be outfitted with Snapdragon 810 processors and 4GB of RAM, as well as 20.7MP main cameras, 5MP front cams, and in-house made S-Master HX DACs.

From other leaked photos, it is also apparent that Sony waved goodbye to the closure flap protecting the microUSB port from water and dust hazards. This doesn't mean Sony ditched protection against the elements - that would be illogical considering the company turned it into a distinguished feature of its products. More likely, it found a more elegant way to protect the hardware.

So, there you go - enjoy these photos and brace yourselves for the Xperia Z4 launch. The smartphone has been leaking left and right recently, so a reveal before the end of summer seems quite possible. Moreover, it seems US (un)carrier T-Mobile has pulled the Sony Xperia Z3 off its online store - and if we speculate for reasons, it could only be lack of demand, an upcoming Sony flagship launch, or something inbetween..

As long as the camera issue are fixed they'll be just fine. Same battery life, SD slot, improved speakers and 32 gb minimum internal memory not to mention they've already remove the flap at the usb port while maintaining ip certification. Also make sure they advertise it and have it available globally.

it's a phenomenal design.. i wish phones would be able to use the same design language for the same line of phones for more than two years before people pick up pitch forks.. why do you need the next phone in a series to look so drastically different? if they wanted to change the style of the phone so much wouldn't they make it in another series? i always figured that the xperia z 1-4 would look pretty similar because they're all called Sony Xperia Z _... right? i agree there needs to be more variety.. but i wouldn't want my z4 to look SO different from my z3 that i've known and loved for so many months.. although if they made an imperium (for example) named series.. then THAT could have a totally different design languange.. right?

It's not boring, but it's old. So, this makes it "less interesting".

Only sony can make a 5inch phone feel like a 5.5inch one (bezels).

HTC is in love with bezels. Married them since birth. It looks like they have decided to die with the Bezels. Long life HTC and Bezels.

How do u even know that for a phone which hasnt even been announced yet? Also I own a Xperia E and a Nexus 4, so I don't know how I am a troll.

the Xperia E is the worst one to make your point... that one is a low end device where slim bezels are not top priority..... For your information, both the Xperia Z3 and the Z3 Compact have a better screen-to-body ratio than the Nexus 4 (70% > 68%)

I just wish Sony could produce a new design already...

omg yes!!!! +1,000,000,000 for this comment!!!! i wish it was more acceptable for OEM's to have a 'signature' design instead of everyone taking up arms becaues they refined their design three years instead of two.. and yes... i AM an HTC fan still... thank you very much. :p
