Sony Xperia Z4 flagship gets Snapdragon 810, slimmer and lighter design

At long last, the Sony Xperia Z4 flagship smartphone has been officially revealed and the company hasn’t given the device a major launch. For now, the phone has only been showcased in Japan where it will eventually go on sale, but there’s no word as yet about bringing it to the international market.

The Sony Xperia Z4 isn’t a huge improvement over its predecessor. In fact, the changes aren’t all that many. Design-wise, the phone looks quite similar to the Xperia Z3, but it does have a few alterations. It’s a bit slimmer now at 6.9mm and also lighter at 144 grams. The handset continues to carry a metal frame for a more robust build.

Where hardware modifications are concerned, the biggest improvement here is the addition of the Snapdragon 810 octa core processor which is a huge improvement over the Snapdragon 801. Then there’s a better front-facing shooter which is rated at 5.1MP with a wide-angle lens. Sony has also extended its digital image stabilizer support to this shooter for taking better selfies.
