Xperia Z4 and Xperia Z4 Ultra may have leaked on the web, but we don’t have an exact trace or leak of the Xperia Z4 Compact model, if such a device exists. Enter Ben Ling, with a concept of the device, complete with a long list of specs, that you can check out below.
The Xperia Z4 Compact uses a 4.8 inch Full HD IPS display, with Sony Live Colour LED technology and Gorilla Glass 3 protection. At the back there’s a 21 megapixel shooter, with 1/2.4 inch sensor size, Exmor RS technology and BIONZ too. There’s 8x digital zoom available, PlayStation Certification and PS4 remote play. This unit has a Glove mode, NFC, a physical camera button, DSEE and Sony 3D Surround technology.
Basically, you get all the goodies of the previous Xperias from 2014, plus an extra or two. If one thing can be guessed about the new Xperia Z4 Compact, that’s the fact that it will have very narrow bezels and probably a new texture or material in the mix. Fancy, right?

Xperia Z4 and Xperia Z4 Ultra render is a mere concept, made by a designer. I’m very cautious with that, because the bezels of the Xperia Z4 Ultra shown here are suspiciously slim…
In spite of some websites saying these images are real, I tend to believe the following
We have seen our share of devices with uber slim edges, but this one may feel like too much. We also couple that with the leak that says the Xperia Z4 Ultra will have front stereo speakers. I wonder where they will actually fit, since we almost have no bezel at the top or bottom… Anyway, we were also lucky enough to get some specs of the Ultra as well. The device will supposedly feature a 5.95 inch display with 2880 x 1440 pixel resolution and 18:9 aspect.
The Xperia Z4 meanwhile is somehow shorter than the Xperia Z3 and its edges are more realistic. Back to the Z4 Ultra, it’s also said to come with a 20.7 MP Exmor RS camera, with 25600 ISO, 25 mm G Lens and RAW capture. The phone measures 8.51 mm in thickness and has S Force front surround sound, a feature that was also present on the Xperia Z3.

Sony Xperia Z4 concept, or better said a teaser of what’s coming. Somehow he managed to cram the cool Z4 technology into a package that’s only 5.6 mm thin, which is crazy good, even for modern standards.
Kiarash Kia has sent us a new
Once again, this is only a teaser, so we can’t exactly say what sacrifices have been made to reach that thickness. This model also enhances the screen of the Z3, making it a 5.4 inch Quad HD display this time and it also brings an anti scratch layer, as well as Triluminous tech and X Reality engine, as usual. There’s a Snapdragon 808 or 810 processor inside, 4 GB of RAM and a 20.7 megapixel back camera, improved from the Xperia Z3.
The front camera is upgraded from 2.2 MP to 5 MP and the battery is a 3500 mAh unit, with a new Stamina Mode included. Android 5.0 Lollipop is the OS here, obviously and the body looks metallic, or at least the edges do. I can’t say anything about the front or back, but Sony would certainly like to keep them glassy. Will Kiarash Kia also do that?

We’ve come across a few new Sony concept phones, created by Babak Soren and we also uncovered a smartwatch with the Sony brand on it. The watch is quite elegant and sporty and I like the way the heart monitoring is shown.
The body is circular here and the overall design is slightly tweaked from the Moto 360. The strap of the watch is interchangeable and be replaced with differently colored versions. This model has an OLED display, an all metal frame and comes with features like an altimeter, accelerometer, thermometer and even a sort of… stethoscope. As far as the other models are concerned, these are midrange Sony phones.
These models are based on one core point of view: users hate glossy plastic, so they’re made of opaque plastic and offer good grip. The midrange Sony concept phone shown here comes with a 3000 mAh battery, an 8 megapixel camera, a 4.7 inch HD display, Snapdragon 410 processor and 1.5 GB of RAM, as well as Android 5.0 Lollipop. Which one of these devices do you fancy the most?

Walkman phone on the market, so a fresh concept can’t hurt. David Quijada has rendered a series of interesting devices over the past year or so and today he’s back with a Sony Xperia Walkman concept.
It’s been a while since there was a new
This model is called Sony Xperia W80 Walkman Phone and it comes with a Snapdragon quad core 2 GHz processor, 2 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of storage. It also has IP 68 water resilience and it can also take shocks. To me, this model combines the traits of an Xperia Active and the ones of a Walkman. The new Walkman concept runs Android 4.4 KitKat, integrates a 5 inch Full HD IPS display and has a 4200 mAh battery.
There’s FM radio on board, WiFi, 4G LTE, HDTV tuner feature and a 21 megapixel back with wide angle lens. Upfront there’s a superselfie 8 MP shooter and we even get a few sports features, like pedometer, GPS, Google Fitness and Health, plus a G Sensor. This looks like a very youthful device, to be honest…

Sony Xperia Z4 concept, this time one created by Babak Soren. He envisions the phone differently than we’ve seen before and even came up with a brand new UI for the handset.
Another week, another
The Xperia Z4 has a curved back and it’s quite bulky by current standards. The front side feels a lot like the current Xperias and the camera area is very interesting, because it seems to lack a flash. It may be implemented as a ring around the cam or attached with special accessories. The UI is very simple and minimalistic, perhaps sporting too big icons, if you ask me. The Android icons have been given a new twist and most menus and widgets are transparent.
The icons seem inspired by those from the camera UI on previous Xperias, so they’re all white and thick. Even the Walkman player has changed and back to the design a bit, I’m really curious to see how this curved back would fit in the palm of the user. Is there room on the market for such a device?

David Quijada on our website, since he has a few original designs that you’ll surely like. Among them we find the Sony Xperia O concept, that was recently rendered and you can check it out below.
I recommend you look up
This Sony Xperia concept packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 2.5 GHz processor, a 4.5 inch Full HD display with OLED panel and up to 128 GB of storage. It’s unusual to see a high end phone with such a diagonal, but it doesn’t mean it’s impossible. The small details are the ones that make the Xperia O a real killer. This KitKat smartphone has a 31.2 megapixel CMOS back camera, a 12 MP front “super selfie” cam and it’s water resistant.
The device has a 4500 mAh battery and weighs 145 grams. The smalld etails include those interesting speaker holes at the top or the way the phone’s edges look. They remind me of a sandwich or a book edge and the ports covered with lids are also sexier now. From what I see, the phone adopts a look one side and another on the opposite side, with a rounded left area. Great design, don’t you think?

Sony Xperia Z4 concept is more of a phablet than a phone, which is not necessarily a bad thing. We’re dealing here with a smartphone that packs a 5.7 inch screen and a metallic body, that should be interesting.
Rendered by Giztimes, the latest
Before you get too excited, know that the metallic body is combined with glass, so yes, the general dual glass plate device has remained the same. The handset is narrow and elongated, it has minimal bezels and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop. It’s finally thin, something the Xperia flagships have never been… Sony Xperia Z4 is sleek and elegant, packs 4 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of storage and a 24 megapixel back camera, plus a 3 MP front camera.
The phone uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and to be honest Sony needs a gimmick here to separate itself from the crowd. Gimmick means one of the following: heart rate sensor, fingerprint scanner, laser autofocus, 3D camera, selfie flash… Which one would you choose?

Sony concept phone, a Walkman model rendered by Lucas Silva. This Sony Walkman unit has a quad core 64 bit processor, a Snapdragon 410 clocked at 1.4 GHz and also includes 1 GB of RAM.
Here we are with a new
It’s supposed to be a midrange affair, with 8 GB of storage, a 4 inch 720p screen and a 5 megapixel main camera. The product weighs 147 grams, measures 8.8 mm in thickness and comes in black, white or orange. The Sony Walkman concept phone is supposed to cost just $200, so it’s affordable. The design looks pretty clean and reminds me of a HTC Desire model, which is a bit of a compliment if you ask me.
Notice anything weird here? Well, the OS may be considered strange, since it’s not Android, but rather Windows Phone. The idea of a musical Sony Walkman Windows Phone sounds interesting, but seeing how the devices with this OS are getting cheaper and cheaper, $200 may actually be too much for it. Imagine that a Lumia with similar specs may even reach $100 or $150. Which would you pick?

Sony Xperia concept, a device that seems to follow in the footsteps of the Xperia C3. The newcomer is called Sony Xperia C4 and it’s only in teaser phase right now, but a full version is coming soon.
Kiarash Kia has designed a new
The designer claims it has created this device in 2 hours and relied on Adobe Photoshop for it. The creator of the render didn’t mention specs, but we can imagine they’re upgrades from the C3. From what I can see the Xperia C4 has an edge to edge display, it’s a wide device and it sports a dual LED flash at the front for improved selfies. There’s also a front 13 megapixel Exmor RS and CMOS camera, making this a solid rival for the HTC Desire Eye.
The handset also has a special thin aluminum frame and incorporates the microphone with special noise reduction in the inferior area. We’ve also got a third camera mechanism at the front and bottom, a depth lens for better selfie shots. What do you think?
