The Sony Xperia Z4 is a bit of an interesting bird. Many of us expected Sony to unveil it at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona a few weeks ago. But Sony decided to get away from that 6-month release cycle. So at MWC we got the Xperia Z4 Tablet and the Xperia M4 Aqua. Sony did say that the Xperia Z4 would be here before September, which is when IFA is set to take place. So we're expecting Sony to either announce the device at Computex which takes place in Taiwan this summer, or at their own event.
We've seen a lot of leaks of the Xperia Z4, a few I feel are fake, so it's clearly getting close to the time that it's going to be unveiled. As always some cool fan renders have popped up for the upcoming device. Now this is likely to never see the light of day, but these renders and concepts are always cool to look at and drool over.
While all of these renders look really nice, the only one I could really see happening is the one with the Xperia Z3 and the Xperia Z4 Ultra. The point is that it's close to the current design, but with even slimmer bezels. Which is what Sony has been doing over the years. However, the Xperia Z4 Ultra, I don't think we'd ever see that. Don't get me wrong, it'd be really awesome, but those slim bezels are tough to accomplish, even for LG. Clearly, larger phones are popular, look at the popularity the Nexus 6 got, for it's size.
I also like the center one in the top row of the gallery below. While it does look similar to the Xperia Z3, it appears to have a larger camera as well as an extra flash. The Xperia lineup already takes some pretty amazing pictures with it's 20.7MP camera, but it could always take even better ones. Am I right?
The Xperia Z4 is likely to be announced this summer alongside the Xperia Z4 Ultra – although that might be announced at a later date – hopefully Sony has seen these renders and like one or two of them.
