Despite having a rough ride sharing market shares with bigwigs like Huawei, Samsung and the rest, Sony appears not to be relenting, as it is heavily hoping on the 5G evolution to boost its dying smartphone lineup. While previous information regarding the unannounced device from Sony – the Xperia XZ4 got us what the device might look like in terms of design, the internal makeups, as well as possible release date, both remained a mystery.
Now, a fresh leak from out of the tech community has emerged, giving us a brief insight into what to expect from the Sony Xperia XZ4 when it finally arrives. The leaked specs suggest the device is all set to stand tall against flagship devices that we will be seeing in the coming year.
First off, the Xperia XZ4 is tipped to come powered by the flagship Qualcomm SD 855 SoC which will be powering the majority of the flagship offering from the coming year. The SoC was only officially unveiled a few hours ago as the world’s first multi-gigabit 5G chip which comes with an industry-leading Artificial Intelligence (AI) and an immersive extended reality (XR). Qualcomm believes that the Snapdragon 855 will open a new era of mobile terminals for the next decade. More on that here.
The SoC will be fused to a 6GB RAM, 64GB or 256GB of expandable storage. We are not sure what the camera configuration will look like, but the XZ4 is tipped to boot Android Pie out of the box, with a 3,900mAh battery.
And finally, it is expected to come fitted with a 6.5-inch gigantic notchless display, with a taller 21:9 flat panel in place of the Xperia XZ3’s 18:9 5.8-inch curved edge AMOLED display.
Other specs, as well as release date, are, unfortunately missing at the moment, but it is probably safe to believe it will follow the path of other flagship Sony devices which make their debut in late February at MWC.
