The Sony Z3 hasn’t even started collecting dust on the shelves but company announces Z4 for Japan

by Shayne Rana

Sony’s Z3 flagship smartphone was doing quite well but it didn’t seem like Sony was in the mood to stop there and take a break. Launching more than a single flagship model a year is what they have on the cards and so the follow-up to the Z3 i.e. the Z4 has been announced in the company’s home base of Japan.

It will feature a 5.2-inch full HD display (odd that it’s not QHD, in keeping with today’s high-end upgrades), a 20 MP camera as is becoming quite common with high-end Sony smartphones and a 2930mAh battery that will power the handset. The engine powering the Z4 is a 2GHz 8-core 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor; that coupled, with 3GB of RAM to run Android Lollipop (5.0) should make the device quite responsive and speedy. My favourite part about Sony handsets is the fact that they’re water and dust resistant, perfect for those underwater pictures of marine life or swimming pool-antics.

The Z4 will be hitting the Japanese shelf sometime in the summer and will be available in color variants of white, black, copper, and “aqua green”. As of now there’s still no word on the pricing or when it’s due to go out to global marklets.
