The Sony Xperia XZ2 marked a radical change for Sony, which had launched phones look a little old-fashioned and pretty designs foursquare. A little later, Sony followed this path with the Xperia XZ3 just about six months after, and now it seems that the company is preparing for an evolution of this model may be christened as Sony Xperia XZ4.
And has already begun the festival of rumors around this alleged Xperia XZ 4, which show a design much more modern and up to date never seen on the Sony. Are you interested in knowing all what is known until now of the Sony Xperia XZ4? Here you have everything you need to know.
Sony has been very tight with details about the camera of the next XZ4. What little we know is that there is a configuration of three cameras on the back, and a camera selfie super wide angle in the front.
Lately, there have been some more concrete details with regard to the lens of the camera, and if they are accurate, it is possible that the Xperia XZ4 break all the records. According to a post on Sumahoinfo, the Xperia XZ4 will be equipped with a huge lens 51 megapixels with an aperture of f / 1.6. This exceeds the record of the lens 48 megapixels of Honor View 20. In addition, like the telephone Honor, the XZ4 could reduce the size of your photos to preserve the storage space in a 13-megapixel still respectable.
Apparently, to this great lens, will be joined by a telephoto lens, 16-megapixel with an aperture of f / 1.8 and a sensor of Time-of-Flight as the third lens. However, the accuracy of these rumors is in some dispute, because the details are based on a processing CAD filtering that may be out of date.
The Sony Xperia XZ4 could be a real source of energy and having the latest processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, according to a leak published in the social network Weibo. In particular, Ice Universe says that the Snapdragon 855 you will join 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB or 256 GB of internal storage space.
Apparently, the screen will measure 6.55 inches and have an aspect ratio of 21: 9, making it long and thin, which fits with other previous rumors. In addition, it is reported that it will have a battery of 3,900 mAh which will provide the necessary energy.
Also, there is a configuration of three cameras on the rear and also a camera selfie super-wide-angle. Along with other rumors, it has also been said that there will be a fingerprint sensor in the side of the phone, which Sony has also been used in the past. Finally, a headphone jack of 3.5 mm will be part of the body of the phone.
MySmartPrice and Onleaks have leaked what could be the best render that we get in the Xperia XZ4 prior to its release. Basically, show a representation of the phone made in CAD, showing the device from all angles and based on the leaks that have accumulated up to the moment. It should be noted that in the front you can see a large screen that is not very extreme at the edges, but certainly more than the previous models from Sony. The phone seems to have an aspect ratio of 21: 9 and MySmartPrice notes that will have dimensions of 166.9 x 72.4 x 8.2 mm
Perhaps it is more interesting to the back, which shows a lens consisting of three lenses, in other words, the Xperia XZ4 could be the first phone of Sony, with a camera, three lenses, that allows you to compete in performance face-to-face with Google and Apple in regards to the quality of the camera.
The phone also seems to have a finger sensor on the back, but that MySmartPrice’s speculated that it could be integrated into the power button, although it is possible that the phone also has a fingerprint sensor on the screen (something that we will see frequently in 2019).
Unfortunately, still there have been no leaks regarding the specifications of the Sony Xperia XZ4, so all we can do is speculate. Even so, some things are clear: for example, it is likely that the new phone include the processor of the next generation of Qualcomm, given that the XZ3 included the Snapdragon 845. In addition to this, you probably have at least 4 GB of RAM, although it is possible that Sony can raise the memory up to 6GB.
Price and release date
Sony has been following a biannual release schedule for the line Xperia in the last few years, and given that the Xperia XZ3 was launched in October, we expect to see the new Xperia XZ4 in April of next year. In regards to the pricing, the Xperia XZ3 reached $900 dollars, so we expect the Xperia XZ4 have a similar price.
