Thanks to WikiLeaks‘ massive leak of Sony documents, we’ve got four new images of device called the “Sony Xperia Z Fourth Generation” (Sony XPERIA Z4).
One of the leaked images confirm that Sony’s next flagship will be clad in metal. It is titled “The New Metal Expression,” and reads, “Making the metal more solid and sleek, in high polished surfaces created by metal plating, all we do this with a new anodizing technology.”
Note that the grammar is a bit off, suggesting that English is not the first language of the person or team behind the renders.
The leaked document also reveals when Sony may launch the XPERIA Z Fourth Generation. According to the document, Sony is expected to release its new flagship in Q1 of its fiscal year 2015. This means that the smartphone could launch from April to June.
Word on the street is the Sony XPERIA Z Fourth Generation will sport a 5.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, a 20.7-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 32-64 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot (previous reports claimed it would not come with the feature), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 2 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, an Adreno 430 GPU, 3 GB of RAM, and a non-removable 3,400 mAh battery. It is said to be clad in metal and have a redesigned power button with a built in touch-based fingerprint sensor. It is said to be IP68-certified just like its predecessor, which means it can be submerged in a meter of water for as much as 30 minutes. It is said to measure 146.3 x 71.9 x 7.2 mm. It will run Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box.
