Verizon-exclusive Sony Xperia Z4v is official: Quad HD display, Quick Charge 2.0, SD810 & 3GB of RAM


Last month, Sony announced the Sony Xperia Z4 in Japan, a device that is known as the Xperia Z3+ on other markets across the globe. Well, it seems that a version of this device will pop up in the USA. It will be sailing under Verizon's flags and will be known as the Sony Xperia Z4v. Does this mean that it will be the same device as the aforementioned handset? Not exactly. Bear with us as we explore what's making the Xperia Z4v different from its brethren.

First things first, it's a bit different in terms of design - the Verizon version of Sony's latest phone is a bit thicker than the Xperia Z3+/Z4 (8.6mm vs 6.9mm) and heavier (160gr vs 144gr) as well. It's also donning an ever so slightly larger battery at the back - while the regular Z3+ and Z4 are endowed with 2,930mAh ones, the Z4v has a 3,000mAh juicer at the user's disposal. There's also Qi wireless charging on board coupled with Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 tech, something that's not supported on the Z3+/Z4.

This is not where the differences end, mind you - the Xperia Z4v is the first Sony smartphone to come with a Quad HD display. Its size is 5.2 inches and the resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels means that the phone is rocking a pixel density of 564ppi. This makes it the sharpest display ever fitted onto a Sony smartphone.

Apart from differences, the Sony Xperia Z4v is otherwise similar to the Z3+ and the Z4. There's an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 inside, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of native storage and a microSD card slot (supporting microSD cards up to 128GB in size), a 20.7MP rear Exmor RS camera that shoots 4K videos at 30fps, a 5MP front-facing one for selfies. It's also noteworthy that the handset is also water- and dust-proof in accordance to the IP65 and IP68 standards.

The Sony Xperia Z4v will land sometime this summer on Big Red's shelves and will be available in black and white only. No word on the price yet.
