First leaks indicate the Sony Xperia Z4 will be a smartphone on steroids

It’s only been a few months since the Sony Xperia Z3 landed on our shores – just over a month to be exact, but tipsters have predicted that the Japanese multi-national conglomerate’s already working on its successor.

The Sony Xperia Z4 might be in the process of being crafted behind Sony’s closed factory doors, but that hasn’t stopped nuggets of rumours from reaching us. 

The phone is said to pack a 5.5in touchscreen with QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution – if you believe the source of the information that is. Word’s out that it will also boast a new curved rear camera sensor with the same 20.7MP resolution as seen on its predecessors, and a dedicated amplifier on board.

On the inside, there might be a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC, in addition to a 2.8 GHz octa-core CPU. Its RAM could possibly be boosted to 4GB, with the minimum storage space sitting at 32GB (double that of what’s currently available for the Z3’s base model).

The rumours comes from the same source as the one that accurately predicted the existence of the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, so there may be some weight to the claim, but as always, it’s better to take it with a pinch of salt than get your hopes too high.

It’s also said that the Xperia Z4 will be released sometime in early 2015, most likely at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in March. But we’re going to have to wait on more rumours before predicting anything concrete. Stay tuned.
