Sony Xperia Z4 : Does it Bring Us Something to Cheer About?

April 23, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It wouldn’t have been the same had it been a few years back. But now with all the charm surrounding the Sony smartphones dying down, the Japanese company seems to be looking towards rejuvenation with the recently launched Xperia Z4. But the actual question is whether it would succeed in its endeavor.

The Sony Xperia Z4 is undoubtedly a premium smartphone that has made its debut, and going by its looks and features, we think Sony almost treads the beaten track.


Resembling the Z3 smartphone that came in earlier, Sony’s latest flagship has almost borrowed the exterior design from its predecessors, except for the reduction in thickness, which now measures only 6.9mm.

The 5.2-inch screen remains the same as used in Z3, which packs a Full HD resolution at a pixel density of 424ppi. The 64 bit SoC is one of the very few changes Sony has tried to bring in with Z4.

The Snapdragon 810 features octa-core technology, but with a reduced speed of 2.0GHz. The chipset will be accompanied by 3GB RAM, which also remains untouched from the previous iteration in the series.

With the new smartphone from Sony, users will get a storage space of 32 GB, which can also be expanded to up to 128 GB by means of micro SDs. The 20.7 rear primary camera also remains the same, while the front cam comes with a wide-angle lens. The battery used is a non-removable 2,930 mAh set, which is also quite hard to believe considering the 3100 mAh battery used in Z3.

Sony would push the device to the Japanese markets initially.

Dates for an international launch have not been mentioned, thus igniting concerns of whether Sony would want to release the smartphone globally.

Recent rumors had suggested that the Japanese company would be looking for a shift in strategies so as to shut down its smartphone and TV department, in lieu of a hefty stake from its PS and entertainment department. We need to wait to hear more on that.
