With just over two weeks remaining next to the big mobile event this year – MWC in Barcelona – it's high time to get reports on the smartphones that are expected to be shown there.
About Xperia XZ4 in this article
One of them is the Sony Xperia XZ4, which will appear in any way on the show. This would mean that the company is on its six-month mobile version – the Xperia XZ2 was released last year's MWC, and the Xperia XZ3 saw today's light at IFA in September.
Before the release of the Xperia XZ4, the crappy carousel is a boom, so here we summarize everything we know and believe about the upcoming Sony flagship.
When is the Sony Xperia XZ4 released?
Sony has called for a press conference in connection with the MWC Fair Monday, February 25, at 08:30 CET. Of course, we can not say for sure that what is shown is just XZ4, but it is very likely. When it comes to launching sales, we expect the phone to buy a month or more, as in the case of XZ3.
Xperia XZ3 was launched at a target price of SEK 7,990 and we do not expect any turbulent fluctuations in six months. The XZ4 is hardly descending, but it may be a bit more expensive than its predecessor, because it has more advanced technology under the hood. Sony does not usually stand out for price reasons, so about 8,000 Swedish kronor turn into our assumption here.
With the latest models, Sony made some distance from the previous, somewhat controversial, design that felt very square. For example, the rounded corners we saw in XZ2 a year ago, and a rounded back panel that made the phone handy, but hard to place on flat surfaces. The fingerprint reader on the back puts too far to be practical. Wherever XZ4 ends, it's unclear – leaked CAD rendering shows that it is empty when the back – but the built-in switch button is a reasonable option.
To return to the shape, the leakage of the picture shows that the rounded corners seem to live on the screen, but the panel itself is completely flat. The XZ4 looks like crazy elongated story and rumors that have a 21: 9 image format. Sony has patented the name Cinemawide for the screen rating. It is said that the size is 6.5 inches, and the screen is expected to be HDR supported and a resolution of 3,360 x 1,440.
The extended impression is enhanced by the fact that the phone does not seem to have a flash for the touch panel or a modern aperture to fit the camera. Instead, the pictures show a thick, thick frame at the top and bottom. So, if we believe the leaks, Sony seems to awaken feelings with its design even in the future, but how well it will actually be left to be seen.

It's no joke that Sony is building the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 top chart in the Xperia XZ4. As no phone with this chipset has been released, it remains to be seen just how fast it gets, but Early tests of reference units show really strong results. Otherwise, speculations about the specs are bad, but Sony needs at least 6 GB of frame and 128 GB of memory to cope with its competitors. So we expect something in this class.
When it comes to the battery, the size can reach a total of 4,400 mAh and also maintain adaptive fast charging signed with Qnovo. If all of these specifications are true, the Xperia XZ4 has nothing to be ashamed of, and in combination with the huge 21: 9 screen, it can become the best phone to watch movies.
Sony is not a dove when it comes to a photo, and the hot rumors are that the Xperia XZ4 increases the number of cameras on the back from one to three. This is undoubtedly a big step – an exception Xperia XZ2 Premium (which had two), Sony is very economical with the number. But considering the three or four cameras we've seen in recent competitors' phones, the footprint would also be very logical.
If we believe in leaks, the front should fit for the camera. Techradar is one of those who cited the Sumahoinfo leakage, which says the mid-range camera is equipped with full 52 megapixels and a large aperture f / 1.6. The other two cameras are said to be telephoto and deep vision.
