Sony Xperia Z4 could be launched as Xperia Z3+ globally



It has been almost a week since Sony announced its latest flagship smartphone — the Xperia Z4. The smartphone was launched in Japan and there were no indications whether it would be launched outside Japan or not. However, if reports are to be believed, the Xperia Z4 could be released as Xperia Z3+ outside Japan.

Considering that the Sony Xperia Z4 has minor upgrades as compared to its predecessor, the Xperia Z3, it makes sense for Sony to not call it a major update. To us, it sounds more like what Apple does by launching an ‘S’ variant every alternate year that signifies minor updates.

When compared with flagship smartphones from Sony’s rivals — the Samsung Galaxy S6, LG G4 and HTC One M9+ — the Sony Xperia Z4 surely seems to be underwhelming considering its features and specifications.

When compared to the Xperia Z3, the only improvement seen in the Z4 is the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and a better 5.1-megapixel front-facing camera. Most of the specifications are the same as the Z3, which featured 3GB of RAM, a 20.7-megapixel camera and a 5.2-inch 1080p display.
