Up front it has a 5.2 inch 1080p screen, with a front-facing 5.1 megapixel camera, allowing it to take solid selfies. A 20.7 megapixel primary camera on the rear will do a better job for general photography and video capture, benefitting from a 25mm lens, which can snap wide angle images.
The Snapdragon 801 chipset is onboard the Z4, with eight physical cores and a 64-bit architecture, allowing it to offer cutting edge processing power. 32GB of built-in storage is the standard amount offered, while a memory card slot means that this is not the limit of the phone’s potential capacity.
Four different colour variants of the Xperia Z4 will go on sale later this year via Sony, with standard white and black models sitting alongside copper and aqua green alternatives, to suit different tastes.
With a body that is just 6.9 millimetres thick, Sony’s new big hitter will not take up much room in spite of its large display. And like HTC, it has stuck with 1080p for the panel, shunning the QHD resolution pursued by Samsung.
