Alleged Sony Xperia Z4 press renders leak online
A few months ago, smack in the middle of the Sony Pictures hacker attack controversy, a picture of the upcoming Sony Xperia Z4 has been leaked online. Today OnLeaks published a couple of alleged Xperia Z4 press renders, revealing the design of the smartphone from both the front and the back. Although the leaked press renders match the aforementioned Xperia Z4 photo leak, this information should be digested with a certain degree of skepticism.
If the leaked Xperia Z4 press renders turn out to be accurate, then the Japanese manufacturer is not ready to drop the Omnibalance design philosophy that it started adopting back in early 2013 with the original Xperia Z. In fact, the renders show a design that's highly similar to that of the previous four smartphones in the series. Compared to the Xperia Z3, one of the main design tweaks that we can notice from the renders are that the stereo front-facing speakers have been integrated in a narrow slit near the frame of the smartphone. Furthermore, Sony seems to have ditched the flaps covering the ports. The plastic flaps were needed in order to ensure protection against water and dust, but perhaps Sony has moved on to using water-repelling nano coatings to achieve this goal.
The Sony Xperia Z4 is expected to feature a 5.2-inch display with a resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels, a 20.7MP primary camera, and a octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor from Qualcomm. Previous rumors claim that the Xperia Z4 will be launched at some point this summer with Android 5.0 Lollipop on board.
