Sony has been one of the primary names in the smartphone business all this time. With handsets such the Xperia Z3 and the Xperia Z3 Compact to show for, the company is set on the right direction. And there's no denying that fact.
With the successful release and launch of the recent Xperia Z3 now out the way, all eyes are set on the handset's successor to release. Yes, indeed, we are talking about the Xperia Z4. Sure there aren't any theories of reports to support it, but rest assured that a successor will indeed arrive.
But what do we know about the Xperia Z4 until now? Will it be a grand handset as its predecessor? We take a closer look. Stay tuned to GizBot formore updates!
A Working 4K Video Support
Although Sony has been highlighting the fact that its phones already support the new 4K display support, with handsets such as the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z3, it still is waiting to perfect the tech. However, with the arrival of Z4, such issues are expected to be gone forever. This time, there will be the 4K support that will actually work the way it's meant to.
No Real Change in Design
If taking cues from the previous Xperia handsets before it, don't expect much change in terms of the handset's designing. Sure changes can be expected in terms of thinner bezels or may be a different material in the build, but the overall shape and size of the handset should remain the same.
4GB RAM Support?
While the Xperia Z3 offered a bigger RAM offering in the form of 3GB, the Xperia Z3 Compact comes with 2GB of RAM. Going forward, however, it is expected that the new Xperia should offer more than the initial 3GB. While everything here is to be taken with a pinch of salt, a 4GB RAM support maybe on the cards.
QHD Display on the Cards?
We have looking out for Xperia handsets with a bigger ppi support as well as more in terms of vibrant displays. Hence when the Xperia Z3 launched, we were a bit downed by the fact that it supports 1080p display. However, with the Xperia Z4, we expect things to change and fast.
More Power Internally
With a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor and 3GB of RAM for the Xperia Z3, expectations are naturally high for the successor to be fitted with better specs in terms of power. There are reports claiming that with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 using a Snapdragon 805 chip and the Snapdragon 810 expected to start arriving soon, we are expecting something similar in the new phone.
Better Low-Light Performance
Sure the Xperia Z3 was a great phone, but it goes without saying that the device's low-light capabilities needed to be improved. However, taking cues from the likes of the iPhone 6 and the HTC One M8, we might see the new Xperia with better low-light capabilities.
