As CES 2015 is drawing near, frequency of rumors and leaks is increasing. Latest in the line of leaks are the specifications for new members to be added to the Sony Xperia family – Xperia Z4 Compact and Xperia Z4 Ultra, which seem to be quite impressive. Some of the specs for both the Sony devices had already leaked last month but now we have the full deal.
Let’s check out the rumored specs for both:
Xperia Z4 Compact
The upcoming Xperia Z4 Compact is a follow-up on its predecessor, the Xperia Z3 Compact and like it, this one also has flagship-like specs but offered in a more compact form.
The leak suggests that the handset will have a 4.7-inch 1920 x 1080p resolution display and 3GB RAM. It will feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 like others in the Xperia Z4 family. Other specs are also supposed to be similar, such as the 32GB internal storage, 20.7MP primary rear camera and 5MP selfie camera with capability for recording 1080p videos. The Xperia Z4 will be outfitted with S-Master HX digital amplifier, superior stereo speakers, LTE Cat.9, NFC and Bluetooth 4.1. The handset will have wireless charging support and IP68 certification for water and dust resistance. There is no info about the battery size but it might be around 3,000mAh.
Xperia Z4 Ultra
Sony’s Xperia Z4 Ultra is a phablet with a 6.44-inch display like the Xperia Z Ultra, its predecessor, but with a Quad HD resolution. In appearance, the handset looks like a bigger version of Xperia Z3 but will have its own stylus, unlike the Xperia Z Ultra that supported only a pencil input. Xperia Z4 Ultra will also sport Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, 16Mp rear camera and a bigger battery somewhere between 3500mAh and 4000mAh capacity to support the larger display. Other specs are rumored to be similar to the Xperia Z4 and the Z4 Compact.
It seems that there will be a delay in release of these two handsets as there is a shortage of Snapdragon 810 processors. So they will probably not be launched along with Xperia Z4 and Xperia Z4 Tablet on January 5th as expected earlier. Sources say that the Xperia Z4 Compact and Xperia Z4 Ultra will now launch in the second quarter of 2015.
