We've been hearing about the Xperia Z4 for quite some time now, and now that the Xperia Tablet Z4 has been released, we've been seeing more and more leaks here and there. Recently, we saw what could be a look at the device in the flesh, and all signs point to a release sooner, rather than later. Now, a camera sample that could have been taken with the Xperia Z4 has been spotted on the Esato forum, a place which often gives birth to Xperia-related rumors and can sometimes share insider information with other users.
Downloading the image and taking a look at the EXIF data tells us it was taken with an E6553, the rumored model number of the Xperia Z4. It has a resolution of 5248 x 3936, which works out neatly as 20.7-megapixels, just like previous Xperia Z devices. The image was taken with an aperture of f/2.0 and the location coordinates are where things get interesting. According to the GPS data from the image, it was taken in the UK, which is odd considering the Sony Mobile addresses are in Japan and Sweden. Either way, this could have been taken out of to prepare for the test photos that ship with devices to show off the display quality. Still, it's interesting to see that the device is being tested outside the UK.
Speaking of the image, it's a pretty generic landscape, and looks like a test image taken at 1:1 with very little, if any, post-processing. It's a pretty image, and it looks fairly well-exposed and uniform, but it's hard to make any sort of informed judgment on how good the Xperia Z4 camera could be from this. Either way, this was an interesting leak, and could very well be from the upcoming Xperia Z4. We'll have to wait and see whether or not this is true of course, but considering we keep on hearing more and more about the Xperia Z4, a release might not be as far away as we first thought.
