Sony Xperia Z4 concepts, it’s time to hear a name I haven’t heard in ages: Satio. Hass. T has designed the Sony Satio X2 concept, a successor of the famous Sony Ericsson Satio. That’s what I call going back to the drawing board.
After a long series of
Anyhow, this model was started in 2013 by the designer, but it was left unfinished, so he decided to go back and redo it. It feels like a teaser and not a finalized model, so your feedback may help the creator of the device with his work. Back in the day, Sony stood for excellent music and video playback, as well as great picture taking. The Satio X2 aims at that purpose and comes with a 24.3 megapixel back camera borrowed from the Sony A99 mount camera.
It offers a very clear and crisp 4K display, Bosse speakers and a design that strays a bit from the classic Omnibalance approach. We get rounded edges, a metal frame, a bottom part that feels like a cross between the older Xperia S and a HTC One, while the back features a gigantic camera. That one would even make a Lumia jealous. Seen from the profile, this Sony Xperia concept feels very much like an iPhone 6.

Sony Xperia Z4 renders, but this one is created by Jermaine Smit and it’s very, very slim. There are actually 3 phone versions, with the main one featuring a5.2 inch 2K display, which is very likely to be featured on the real Z4 model.
I have seen my share of
The Sony Xperia Z4+ concept packs a 21.09 megapixel camera, a microSD card slot with support for up to 128 GB, 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage and 4 GB of RAM. It also has a 2880 mAh battery. There are actually 3 versions that Jermaine Smit rendered, including a 5.2 inch Full HD Z4 unit, with a 21.9 MP camera, 4 GB of RAM and a 2880 mAh battery.
Finally, there’s the Xperia Z4 Mini with a 4.7 inch Full HD display, the same 21.9 MP camera, microSD card slot and 16, 32 or 64 GB of storage, 3 GB of RAM and a 2500 mAh battery. The smartphone is ultraslim in all its 3 versions, it has elegant and slim physical buttons on the sides and rounded top and bottom. It manages to stray a bit from the usual Omnibalance design and includes edge to edge screens, as well as a very big back camera lens.

Sony Sports. This model looks like a plastic flask of alcohol, but it’s geared towards the active man, being a fitness phone.
Paulo Corceiro has designed a Sony concept phone that he called
With so many fitness bracelets out there, why not have a fitness phone as well? The handset is curved from the back to the front and features rounded edges that are a bit too big for modern requirements. It comes in bright, Tweety yellow and I’m sensing there are solid music features and GPS features on board, to get the best out of your workout. Subscriptions to fitness magazines and services are included and the camera looks… strange.
It feels like there’s a Bluetooth headset ready to be removed there, not a camera. Anyway, the curvature of the phone makes me imagine holding it during long runs and it probably faces sweat, rain and dust easily. Social networking and maybe a pedometer and pulse sensing would be useful here.

Sony Xperia Curve. It’s like he took the best out of the Microsoft Lumia devices from the past years and also added some of the latest Samsung DNA in the mix, with the side curves and all.
Jermaine Smit has a very cool new concept phone ready, one that he calls the
Part of the Sony DNA is kept here, but those curved edges sure look swell. The smartphone features a 5.2 inch curved AMOLED display, 3 GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 810 processor. All of these sound like realistic specs for the Sony Xperia Z4, by the way. We’ve got 32 or 64 GB of storage, and a 21.9 megapixel back camera, plus a 4.9 MP selfie shooter. The handset has IP67 protection, being waterproof and dustproof at the same time.
It has no flaps and its USB connection will be cut when water is detected, which sounds like a pretty smart solution to the waterproofing problem. The main camera has a dual LED flash and there are also JBL front speakers included in the mix here. I have a feeling this Xperia Curve render is better than what Sony has to offer with the real Xperia Z4. Also, nice color choices for the device’s case, including blue, gray, beige and silver.
The Xperia Curve shows a smarter way to include curved screen edges and more discrete than the LG prototype at CES 2015 or the Galaxy Note Edge.

Sony Xperia Z4 concepts, most of them clearly anchored in 2014. The one shown below was created by Ashraf Amer, with 2015 in mind. This handset is supposed to be the top of the latest technology unveiled in the coming months.
We have seen quite a few
Sony Xperia Z4 runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and also get sa golden version. We’re dealing with a handset that sports a 5.4 inch IPS LCD display with a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, shatter proof glass and Triluminous technology. There’s also an octa core Snapdragon 810 64 bit processor inside and a 24 megapixel back camera with dual LED flash.
There’s a 1/2.3 inch sensor in the mix and we’ve got a 12 megapixel front camera for selfies. There’s 32 GB of storage inside, 4 GB of RAM, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and a 4500 mAh battery with Quick Charge 2.0. This model comes in4 premium colors and it feels like a wide slab of modernity, in a very thin packaging. The Xperia Z4 shown here is clearly slimmer than other similar concepts and feels very fragile, at 5 mm in thickness.

Sony Xperia Micro concept is meant to be a phone for people who want raw handset power in a smaller package. This model offers the smallest, thinnest package possible with the thinnest bezel possible, according to the creator of the device.
Designed by Dwight Looi, the
It packs a 4 inch 720p display, a Snapdragon 808 processor and a 20.7 megapixel back camera with 4K video recording. There’s also a through-the-LCD selfie cam, that operates via the hole in the backlight diffuser and DSP for LCD shadow. The ergonomics are tailored for as good a grip as possible for this small and slim device. The product is said to retail for the same price as the Xperia Z4, which means $629 without contract.
I find it interesting that the designer placed the Home button at the bottom and the charging contacts in the same area. The device’s edges feature a a small concave side, where these buttons are integrated. This makes the Xperia Micro look like an ice cream sandwich of sorts and just like its predecessors, the main metal part is sandwiched between two glass parts.
The glass is enhanced and allows the antenna RF pass-through. The frame of the device involves machined titanium aluminum alloy, so this sturdy model is quite a piece of work.

David Quijada’s name in this sentence, you’ll see a series of bold designs he has created and in 2015 he continues the same trend. Today he unveils the Sony Xperia Q phablet, in two versions: Xperia QA and Xperia QT.
If you click
Sony Xperia QA packs a 5.5 inch HD TFT Triluminos screen, as well as a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 1.7 GHz quad core processor and 4G LTE connectivity. We’ve got inductive charging on board, 3 GB of RAM, a 3200 mAh battery and a 20.1 megapixel shooter. There’s a superselfie camera upfront and a micro HDMI output. This unit has a special case around the main body, sort of like a bumper case. The design claims it the Q phablet uses an aluminum thermal bezel and an assembly technology based on two screws alone.
Sony Xperia QT is a 5.5 inch Full HD display device and inside it we find a surprise: the freshly announced Nvidia Tegra X1 octa core processor, the one announced at CES 2015. This unit has a crazy 6 GB of RAM and it’s basically a monster phone. It also comes with a 30.2 MP camera, a 12 MP superselfie shooter and a micro HDMI out. The battery is also huge at 5000 mAh.

Sony Xperia Z4 concept that Kiarash Kia imagined? Well the multi lens device has been finalized by the designer and today we get a full list of specs and more views of the device, from a variety of angles.
This model uses an Exmor RS image sensor, CMOS image sensor, as well as BIONZ X image processing and Sony G Lens. As far as the sound goes, there’s S Master Digital Amplifier, S Force Surround, ClearAudio+, a magnetic fluor speaker and stereo speakers. The screen technology is Triluminous, as usual, plus there’s X Reality for mobile Sony Bravia Engine 3 and protections against scratch and shattering.
A smart idea is the inclusion of corners that light up discretely and also work as notification lights. The device has very slim bezels around the display, which is not exactly strange, if you consider the latest leak of the Xperia Z4 Ultra. All of the above mentioned technology is crammed within 5.7 mm of thickness, associated to the case, quite an evolution from the 7.3 mm of the Xperia Z3.
The frame is made of metal, just like the predecessor, only a bit less rounded this time.

Sony Xperia Z4 and also created a comparison image of it and the Xperia Z3. This handset involves a feature called X-Ploid, a Sony speaker technology that increases bass and we also get optical image stabilization for the back camera.
Sanjaya Kanishka has rendered a new version of the
The device runs Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box and the upgrades over the Xperia Z3 include the CPU (from Snapdragon 805 to Snapdragon 810) and RAM (from 3 GB to 4 GB). There’s 32 GB of ROM included, a 4000 mAh battery and a 5.3 inch Quad HD screen. The display has its bezels reduced from the predecessor, in order to keep the same horizontal width as the predecessor.
The new camera has a curved sensor, 240 FPS slow motion recording and back to the screen, it features Gorilla Glass 4 protection. The acoustics are totally upgraded, with stereo dual speakers included, the X Ploid system and S Master HX Walkman support. The camera has a 22.1 MP sensor, dual LED flash and as you can see, the Xperia Z4 is less long than the Xperia Z3, so it’s more compact. The general format hasn’t changed much, though…

Sony Xperia Z4 is basically a week or so away from being unveiled, if it does come at CES 2015. Today we get got a new render of the device, sent to us by an user called Warp Flame. The device looks pretty basic from the front, but at the back there’s a pretty powerful camera.
Notice the Cyber-shot branding and all the goodies included, such as the Sony Lens G, 10x optical zoom and a Xenon flash. The facade is also interesting, but rather odd, since apparently it features capacitive buttons (Back and Recents), but no Home button. Obviously, that’s a mistake, but maybe the Xperia logo is the Home button. Anyway, the two front stereo speakers feel a bit crowded, so that’s not exactly my favourite design for the front of the device.
At least the bezels are slim and as far as the back camera is concerned, I expect it to be around 22 or 24 megapixels this time. Since the Xperia Z1, Z2 and Z3 used pretty much the same sensor, it’s time for an upgrade. The CPU may also jump to Snapdragon 810 and the display to Quad HD.
