Japan exclusive Sony XPERIA Z4 to be rebranded as Z3+ internationally?

Sony has lifted the lid on the XPERIA Z4 in Japan, which reports suggest is exclusive for the Japanese market. A new leak, however, reveals that the Japanese device maker may be re-branding the Z4 as the XPERIA Z3+ meant for the international market.


This is according to the official white paper (cached) ( see screenshot above) for an official Sony Xperia Z4 accessory called the “Sony SCR30 Style Cover Window case for the Xperia Z4.” It list two smartphones that are compatible with it – the XPERIA Z4 and the XPERIA Z3+. Sadly, the white paper has been taken down by Sony. Fortunately, a cached version has been saved.

The listing suggests that the Z4 will only be available in Japan, and that the Z3+ could be its international version with a few changes here and there.

To recap, the Sony XPERIA Z4 unveiled in Japan sports a 5.2-inch Triluminos screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (pixel density of 424 ppi), a 20.7-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5.1-megapixel front-facing camera, 32-64 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot (support for as much as 128 GB), 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 2,930 mAh battery. It is clad in metal. It is IP6 certified for dust and IP5 and IP8 certified for water.This means it can be submerged in 4.92 feet for as long as 30 minutes. It measure 146 x 72 x 6.9 mm and weighs in at 144 g. It runs Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box. We’re guessing the XPERIA Z3+ will sport similar specs.
