Sony’s Gorgeous Xperia Z4 Leaked In New Renders, Sports Lollipop And Snapdragon 810 SoC

A handful of renders showing Sony's forthcoming Xperia Z4 handset have leaked to the web. If the final design holds true to those renders, the Xperia Z4 is going to be a stunning device on par with some of the better looking smartphones currently available. It's also going to be plenty fast, according to the rumored specs.

Let's talk about the handset's features for a moment. From what the web thinks it knows at this point, the Xperia Z4 will measure 146.3mm (L) by 71.9mm (W) by 7.2mm (D). It will have a 5.2-inch display with either a 1920x1080 or more likely a 2560x1440 resolution powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, Andreno 430 graphics, and 3GB or 4GB of RAM. A 21-megapixel rear-camera will be in the mix, and of course the handset will rock Android 5.0 Lollipop.

From the 3D renders, it looks as though Sony moved the SIM slot to the left side of the device. You can also see a microUSB port, 3.5mm audio port on top, front-facing speaker, and a volume rocker.

Curiously missing is a microSD card slot. That either means the Xperia Z4 won't offer users expandable storage, or that it was simply left out of the renders, which Twitter user "OnLeaks" (Steve Hemmersoffer) says were made for internal use only and aren't actual press photos.

It's also interesting to see the exposed microUSB port. It raises the question of whether or not the Xperia Z4 will be waterproof or water resistant, something that's been a bragging right for Xperia handset owners. One thing worth pointing out in that regard is that Sony's Xperia Z4 Tablet also leaves the miniUSB charging port exposed, yet it's still advertised as being dust-proof (IP65) and waterproof (IP68).
