Among other changes, Sony is ditching the IMX220 camera sensor from the phone in favor of a better sensor, the name of which hasn’t been identified yet. This is a good news for a lot of OEMs – including Apple, Samsung, LG and Motorola that use Sony’s camera sensors on their phones. Also Read - God of War Ragnarok delayed until 2022: Here's why
With the Xperia Z4, Sony is moving to an even bigger screen, lacing the phone with a 5.5-inch screen with a QHD screen resolution. The bigger screen size shouldn’t worry people who prefer smaller screens though, as Sony usually produces a compact version of its flagship device. On the connectivity front, the phone is tipped to support LTE Cat. 6 (300 Mbps) and Bluetooth 4.1. The phone will almost certainly come with Android 5.0 Lollipop, if not any newer version.
The report also squashes the rumors of the existence of Sony Xperia Z3X. The device which was benchmarked earlier this month, was probably some kind of prototype and won’t ever see the light of the day.
