Sony today announced the Xperia Z4, a modest update to is 2014 flagship, the Z3. The Z4 features a glass and metal design that is water and dust proof. The phone is slimmer than its predecessor and measures 6.9mm thick. The Z4 features a 5.2-inch full HD Triluminos display and runs an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor with 3 GB of memory, 32 GB of storage, and support for memory cards up to 128 GB. The main camera uses Sony's 20.7-megapixel Exmor RS sensor, while the front camera is improved to a 5.1-megapixel Exmor sensor with shake correction. The main camera can record video up to 4K, while the front camera can record 1080p HD. The Z4 offers a range of connectivity options, including dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, and support for select LTE 4G networks. The device runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and will feature Sony's apps and user interface overlay. Sony said it will begin to sell the Xperia Z4 in Japan around the middle of the year, but didn't say for how much nor if the phone's availability will be expanded to other markets. Sony's Z3 saw limited release in the U.S. last year, as Sony has struggled to gain any share of the U.S. market.

Can't wait for a metal Compact model

So are they going to make a Z4 Compact, or do the Compact models skip every other year? Would be awesome to have a metal frame on my Z3 Compact, which is still the best phone out there imo since everything else is too big!

Hey its the Sony Optimus G...

You know your style was classic when someone else releases it 5 years later.

Almost There.

Ok, Sony has designed a smartphone that has a METAL body yet retains an SD card and waterproofing? But,but,but,I thought according to some of today's tech enthusiasts, this wasn't possible. Well, as I've always contended, it is possible.

Now I dare any manufacturer step up and do the same while adding removable battery.
