The alleged Sony Xperia Z4 will be one classy smartphone

Going by the increasing number of leaks surrounding the Sony Xperia Z4, it’s pretty much set in stone that this smartphone will make an official debut at the MWC trade show this year, at Barcelona.

A new spyshot of the device was posted up on Chinese social network, Weibo (it's since been taken down), giving us a closer look at some of the features that might potentially make it on the smartphone when it gets unveiled.

In this leak, the front panel of the purported device has been captured, showing off some much-needed upgrades from its predecessor, the Sony Xperia Z3. We must say, if the rumours are real, these design tweaks will make the unit look way classier.

The most obvious difference is the change in the location of the front camera and ambient light/proximity sensors – they seem to have swapped positions. In addition, the unofficial mobile device seems to have bezels marginally thinner than the Sony Xperia Z3.

Also, the speakers look like they’ve been repositioned to sit behind the thin slits visible on the edges of the panel. These modifications sound somewhat like recent leaks reported about the HTC One (M9) aka HTC Hima.

But that’s where all rumours attached to this leak stop. There wasn’t any information about its software and innards, although other sources have speculated that it might boast a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC, with a 2.8 GHz octa-core CPU and 4GB of RAM.

It’s also said to come out of the box with 32GB internal storage, Cat.6 LTE connectivity, Bluetooth 4.1, and a dedicated amp on board the device. MWC 2015 is only a few weeks away, and we’ll bring you the official details then.
