Xperia Z4 Release Date
As of yet there’s no indication of when Z4 will arrive. Since Z3 launched in September, Z4 is likely to release in coming March. Xperia Z2 was unveiled by Sony at the 2014 Mobile World Congress. Henceforth, we could expect Z4 to see the light of the day at MWC 2015.
Voice of dissent exists over Z4’s release date. One of such voices came up with the claim that Z4 will be available in USA from September 2015. September has been regarded as Z4’s month of release in several other countries such as Australia, UK, France and Germany. The same source however claimed in India and Thailand, the time of release would be October 2015.

Many expect Xperia Z4 to arrive with a QHD display. But Sony said previously it has no intention to introduce the QHD technology. Similarly, Sony indicated it would increase the battery efficiency to make up for the not-so-great pixel resolution.
Does that mean there won’t be big changes ahead, and we’ll have to be content with the small ones? Not really, Reports are coming from different corners that Sony has tried QHD in some of its prototype models. We should therefore be optimistic.
A roundup of floating rumors tell us the high priority specs (which are also in the wishlist of many) would be the ones below;
Display of Z4
It’s safe for us to expect Full HD display in Z4. The display of Z3 stands at 1920 x 1080p. This is impressive, but there are other phones with 2560 x 1440p resolution. Z4 therefore, needs robust 2K display. Some sources suggest Z4 will sport Ultra HD 4K display. UHD display will account for crisp resolution and 4 times better resolution than 1080p HD display.
The screen size is not yet known. Some journos indicated Z4 will feature a massive 6.3 inch screen. Z3 had a 5.2 inch screen. We’re not sure whether or not there will be such a sizable gap between Z3 and Z4 screen sizes. The IPS LCD along with the Triluminos effect will be retained. The screen will reportedly be made of Corning Gorilla Glass.

Improved Battery Life
Z3 has a 3100mAh battery. There’s rumor that Sony will equip Z4 with a 5000mAh battery. The immensely large capacity will make the battery a non-removable one. Currently, there’s no first-tier company to launch a phone with 5000mAh battery life. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is famous for its battery capacity, which 3220 removable Li-on battery.
Water and Dust Resistance
Two devices, launched in recent time are famous for resistance from dust and water. They are Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4. Xperia Z4 will sport an even better water and dustproofing technology. The device will reportedly have IP65 and IP68 rating in these two categories. Water splashes, scratches and dust molecules won’t trouble the device at all. Sources indicated even upto 100 meters inside the water, the device will remain unaffected. It will also be heatproof.
Better Quality Fingerprint Scanner
Data security is one of the chief concerns for users. Xperia Z4 will have outstanding secure locking and unlocking feature based on scanning user’s fingerprints. The prints of fingers will be totally unique to ensure robust security. iPhone 5S and Galaxy S5 arrived with advanced fingerprint scanner. This time it will be Z4.
Powerful Camera of Sony Z4
Xperia smartphones are famous for their camera. Z4 will live off this lineage. Z3 launched with a 20MP camera. Z4 will reportedly have G+ sensor enabled 27MP camera. The stock camera app will have integrated editing features with 4K recording facility. The rear panel will pack a dual LED flash. The 10MP front camera will ease Skype calls.
Reports are coming that Xperia Z4 may launch with thinner bezels. Z3’s bezels are haphazardly at the top and bottom of the screen and quite large. The OmniBalance design may be found in Z4. Some top devices like iPhone 6 and HTC One M8 look perfect with OmniBalance design.
Must Check About Surface Pro 5
By the time Xperia Z4 will release, Android 5.0 lollipop would become the talk of the town. Z4 will surely not arrive with Android 4.4 KitKat. Android L, previewed at this year’s Google I/O is almost all set to release in this month itself. Thus, the most favorable candidate from the Android family to run Z4 is Android 5.0 lollipop.
Connectivity Options of Xperia Z4
