Although not as well known as the iPhone and the Galaxy, Sony's Xperia devices are now the mainstay of many Android fans. With the introduction of the XZ2, the well-known company renounced the familiar, blocky design its smartphones were known for, and opted for a sleeker, curvier look. The same design element has been transferred to the XZ3 and will likely continue with the upcoming XZ4.
With the introduction of the XZ4, Sony is likely to overcome all hurdles in terms of design in hopes of somewhat deriving market share from dominant competitors such as Samsung and Google. Compared to other upcoming releases like the Galaxy S10, however, the details of the XZ4 were very small. Here's what we have so far about the upcoming Xperia flagship.
Announcement and Release
Sony was quite consistent with the revelation of its flagship devices every two years, and in the spring, the first cell phone hit the market by the second handset at fall. As a reference, we only need to look back at the predecessors of the XZ4, the Xperia XZ2 and XZ3, which were released on April 5 and October 5, respectively.
Therefore, we will consider the speculation of Digital Trends and assume that Sony will introduce the Xperia XZ4 around April 201
The Xperia XZ3 was no frills in the screen department and had a 6-inch OLED display that was equivalent to the other flagship phones like the Galaxy S9. If a recent leak turns out to be true, Sony will go one step further with the XZ4 – without actually implementing it.
Onleaks and MySmartPrice have recently released CAD-based rendering versions of the Xperia XZ4, which gives the best estimate of what the flagship will look like. One of the most obvious features of the device is the high screen that MySmartPrice mentions as 6.5 inches diagonal. And unlike a whole range of devices that copied Apple's notch, Sony decided to break the trend and abandon its use.
The Xperia XZ4 has an impressive aspect ratio of 21: 9 due to the massive, no-touch display. Nevertheless, the XZ4 is relatively compact and measures 6.57 x 2.85 inches, due in part to the thin bezel design.
