Sony has announced the long waited Xpera Z4 today in Japan. The device has been in the rumor mill for a long time, and we even saw it leak out many times, and now it’s finally here.
The Sony Xperia Z4 will feature a 5.2-inch Full HD Screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. It will be powered by a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of Built in storage. There is also a Micro SD Card Slot that can hold up to 128GB.
The Sony Xperia Z4 is 6.9mm thin and it features a new metal frame. It adds some extra class to the device. The device will be available in White, Black, Copper and Aqua Green. The handset is IP6 certified for dust and IP5 and IP8 certified for water. This means that the Xperia Z4 is protected against “Water projected by a nozzle (6.3 mm) against enclosure from any direction.”
The Xperia Z4 has a 20.7MP camera at the back and a wide angle 5.1MP snapper on front for selfies. The device is powered by a 2930mAh battery.
The device is running on Android 5.0 Lollipop with Sony’s Custom Xperia Skin on top. The UI looks to have got a slight revamp in the icons and the other elements.
Some accessories for the phone were also revealed, including a waterproof Cover Window that lets you view important information on the screen while still protecting the handset; which is sorta like Samsung’s S-View Cover. This will be available in the same four colors as the Xperia Z4, priced at the equivalent of $59 USD. A desktop holder will also be offered, which will dock the phone and recharge it.
The Sony Xperia Z4 will be available in Japan later this summer. There is no word on pricing or availability outside Japan.
