There’s no shortage of imminent new Android flagships, including the Samsung Galaxy S6, the HTC Hima, the LG G4, and of course the Sony Xperia Z4.
The Japanese manufacturer’s next big release failed to turn up at CES 2015 (we had to make do with the super-expensive Walkman ZX2), but the Sony Xperia Z4 appears to have passed through a couple of regulatory bodies. Maybe.
The first story is pretty certain and sees the Sony Xperia Z4 being certified on its home turf for use on NTT Docomo, KDDI and SoftBank (GSMDome). Xperia Z4 specs seemingly include support for VoLTE and Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac.
The second story is a little more vague, and essentially sees a mysterious Sony Xperia phone hitting the FCC (Xperia Blog). It’s not clear what it is, so, hell, let’s use it as an excuse to talk Xperia Z4.
Rumoured Sony Xperia Z4 specs are rather specific. We’re told to expect two models, one 5.2in QHD, one 5.2in 1080p, and supposedly the US will get 4GB of RAM while Europe and Asia make do with 3GB.
Further Xperia Z4 specs include Sony’s 20.7MP rear camera, the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, a 5MP front “selfie” camera, 3,000-3,400mAh battery and Lollipop Android 5.0, while IP68 certification means resistance to dust and water.
Sony hasn’t said anything officially, but pretty much everyone is expecting the Xperia Z4 launch to go down at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015 in March.
