Sony has officially announced its new flagship Sony Xperia Z4 phone in Japan. This is almost on heels of Sony’s MWC 2015 announcement for the Xperia Z4 Tab. The giant has not revealed anything on a global scale yet but this summer you can get hands on the Z4 in copper, white, green and black variants at Japanese stores.
The flagship phone comes at a time when Sony failed to woo the consumers at the smartphone front. Interestingly, this time Sony has chosen to slash the battery to 2930 mAh instead of 3000 mAh which we saw in Xperia Z3. However, before getting your hopes high we need to inform you that the Z4 might not be much different from the Xperia Z3. The sleek look, metal and glass fringed build and light 144 gram weight gives us nothing unique on this front though.
While the 5.2-inch screen will come in 1080p LCD and the smartphone will house a 20.7 MP main clicker. The 2GHz 8-core 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor clubbed with 3 GB RAM could speed operations on Z4 up and as expected, it will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Expected to be announced either at IFA Berlin 2013 or CES 2014, the device will be rolled out with a bigger and better display.
Apparently, the Sony Xperia L4 Togari will be designed on the same lines as Sony’s 2013 flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z. Whether the device will be waterproof or not is still unknown.
The Xperia L4 will come packed in a powerful Snapdragon 600 or 800 processor, same as Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3.
Boasting RAM of 2GB, the phablet will sport a 13-megapixel primary camera with Exmor RS sensor.
Earlier speculations claimed the tab to hold a 6.44-inch 1920 x1080 IPS screen for the Sony phablet. The Togari was also rumoured to have 3GB of RAM and a MSM8974 krait 800 processor clocked at 2.3GHz. The NFC-enabled phablet is also believed to pack in 32GB of on-board memory, a 13-megapixel primary camera, a 2-megapixel secondary camera, a 3500mAh battery and a stylus.… Read the rest
