Sony Xperia Z4 Compact and Z4 Ultra specs leaked
A recent report claims to reveal leaked specifications of Sony’s next generation smartphone variants, the Xperia Z4 Compact and Xperia Z4 Ultra, sharing new information about the handsets that are set to be released alongside its Z4 flagship smartphone and Xperia Z4 tablet.
According to the site’s insider sources, the two variants are both said to feature the latest 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, shaping both handsets up to be true powerhouses of the smartphone space. However, speculation is that, if the sources are correct, this could mean a delay in their arrival as well, as a result of shortages of the processor.
Despite the Japanese giant’s efforts in using its ‘Compact’ line to target the smaller side of the smartphone scene with reduced form factors, they are known to still retain flagship specs and not hold back on power. The latest leaks points out that the Z4 Compact will preserve the 4.7-inch screen size as the existing Xperia Z3 Compact, whilst making a jump in resolution from 720p to a 1080p Full HD panel.
The device’s specs sheet further impresses with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage that is expandable via microSD, a 20.7MP primary camera and 5MP front-facing snapper, alongside LTE Cat 9, Bluetooth 4.1 and NFC connectivity options. The company’s well known IP68 water and dust resistant coating is of course present in the new model too, whilst wireless charging support is also said to be present.
The Z4 Ultra, on the other hand, may be the device of choice for those who prefer a larger handset. Housing a huge 6.44-inch QHD display with a stunning resolution of 1440 x 2560, the Z4 Ultra will sport similar internals to the Z4 Compact, with 3GB of RAM but a smaller 16MP camera and a larger 4,000 mAh battery instead of the Compact’s 3,000mAh example. The Ultra is also rumoured to come with a stylus, similar to the Galaxy Note series.
Even though the impressive specs appears to be somewhat in line previously rumoured about the flagship Xperia Z4, we do still suggests that readers take the above information with a pinch of salt, and approach the report with caution as these claims have not been backed up by official releases. It is fairly unlikely that Sony will make the Z4 variants more powerful than its flagship, though the new report seems to be shaping the two devices up to be this way.
Sony is expected to refresh its full smartphone line-up during MWC in early March next year with the two variants alongside the flagship Z4, so we will hopefully be hearing some official details about the smartphones in due course.
