Most smartphone makers release new devices about once a year. Most, but not all. Sony is one of the manufacturers who believe that waiting a whole year for a new phone is way too long. The Sony Xperia Z3 was launched just last month and it seems that the company is already working on a successor which will be called Xperia Z4. The phone is rumored to feature a 5.5-inch QHD display and 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor.
Sony’s Flagship Phone for 2015 – Rumors
If there is truth in the news, then the new Sony Xperia Z4 will be just 0.3 inches bigger than the Xperia Z3 but upping the resolution from Full HD to QHD is a significant improvement. The Snapdragon 801 processor used in the Z3 is still more than capable of delivering excellent performance, but compared to the upcoming octa-core Snapdragon 810, it’s like a baby’s toy. Moreover, the new chip will have 64-bit architecture optimized for the latest version of Android, the 5.0 Lollipop iteration. The phone is also said to come with 4GB of RAM which would make it a real powerhouse.
The Xperia Z4 allegedly will offer 32GB of internal memory; however, unfortunately we don’t know whether it will be expandable or fixed. According to the source, Sony might use a new curved Exmor camera sensor in the Z4, though the resolution probably will remain unchanged, that is 20 megapixels. Finally, the Z3 successor is believed to support LTE Cat. 6 download speeds of up to 300 Mbps, and pack Bluetooth 4.1 and amplifiers to deliver audio experience similar to the HTC BoomSound. Sony’s phones are famous for having waterproof construction and powerful battery but sadly we don’t know whether it will be the case with the Xperia X4 as these details were not mentioned.
All these rumored specs sure sound exciting; however, you probably shouldn’t cut down on your expenses to save money for the new Sony Xperia Z4 just yet. Even though the report comes from a source that proved pretty accurate in the past, the news is still nothing more than a rumor. And you know how it is with rumors – it’s better to keep a pinch of salt nearby in order to avoid disappointment.
