What to Expect from Sony Xperia Z4?

You might be wondering “it’s only been a couple of months since Sony unveiled the Xperia Z3, what’s new in its successor Xperia Z4?” So do I! Now let’s find out what to expect from Sony Xperia Z4 in the following discussion.

First of all, I have to point out that there’s only a slight tweak between Xperia Z4, Sony’s first high-end smartphone of 2015, and its last flagship, Xperia Z3. The main upgrades mainly reflect in a slimmer design, 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor, new audio processing capabilities and a 5.1-megapixel selfie camera. In addition to that, the battery capacity should have a small downgrade (see the table attached below).

It doesn’t take a genius to tell there’s no sharp improvement in Sony Xperia Z4, so I’ll probably never buy one. What’s your decision then?


Extra: It’s said that there may be 2 different editions of Xperia Z4. One with the screen detailed above and another with a QHD 2560×1440 resolution. And the recent-released one is intended for developing markets while the latter still-unpacked one is for the likes of US and UK.
