In addition to the specifications and features that have already leaked before, the publication adds that the Xperia Z4 will have Qi wireless charging capability and no plastic flaps that cover the external ports. Sony introduced the flap covers with the Xperia Z, which essentially prevent any water from entering the phone. Rumor has it that even without the flaps, the phone will have IP68 certification, which means it will be able to withstand water for as deep as 4.9 feet for as long as 30 minutes. This is similar to what HTC has offered on the Butterfly 2, wherein the ports are open and have short circuit protection.
Sony Xperia Z4 Compact
The Xperia Z4 Compact is expected to finally embrace the 1080p screen (Xperia Z3 Compact features a 720p display). The phone is expected to have the same sized screen as on the Xperia Z3 Compact, which was 4.6-inch. As for power, it is expected to boast the same internals as the bigger Xperia Z4.
Sony Xperia Z4 Ultra
The phablet is expected to come with a 6.4-inch display, but unlike the original Xperia Z Ultra, the resolution will be bumped up to QHD (1440×2560 pixels).
Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet
As for the tablet, it is pegged to have a 10.1-inch screen with either QHD (2560×1440 pixels) resolution or 3840×2160 pixels resolution. Furthermore, the tablet is expected to embrace the same design as the Z4 smartphone, which implies thinner bezels. It is also expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 810 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.
For now this is all that has leaked. As with all such rumors we would advise you to take it with the proverbial pinch of salt.
