Sony has unveiled its new Android smartphone – the Xperia Z4. Details of the device were quietly released on Sony’s Japanese website. The announcement details the phone’s specs and its mid-year release in Japan. No word yet on when the phone will be released internationally.
The Xperia Z4 features a 5.2” HD display with a 1920×1080 resolution. With a thickness of just 6.9mm and weight of 144 grams, it’s thinner and more lightweight than its Z3 predecessor.
The Xperia line is known for having high quality cameras and a rugged design. Like the Z3, the Z4 is both water- and dust-resistant. It also comes equipped with a 5MP front-facing camera and 20MP rear camera. The Z4 also comes with an IP6X dust rating, and is IPX8 and IPX5 certified. This means that the Z4 can be completely submerged in water for an indefinite amount of time. And the new flagship phone also comes with waterproof USB ports, so there’s no need for sealed caps.
Under the hood, the phone boasts a 2930mAh battery, 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor, Android 5.0 Lollipop, and 3GB of RAM. The Z4 offers 32GB of onboard memory, but you can expand your storage to 128GB with a microSD card.
