Sony has announced the Xperia Z4, its latest flagship smartphone, in its home country of Japan. Like the Z4 Tablet announced at Mobile World Congress last month, the Z4 isn’t a dramatic departure from earlier Xperia devices like last fall’s Z3.
The Z4’s 6.9-mm-thick, 144g metal-and-glass body is very much in line with the company’s prior design language, and houses a 5.2-inch 1080p LCD screen, a 20.7-megapixel camera, a 2930mAh battery, a 2GHz 8-core 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor, and 3GB of RAM. The phone runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and is water- and dust-resistant. Unlike the Z3, no smaller “Compact” edition has been announced.
