There has been a lot of buzz in the smartphone industry about the Sony Xperia Z4 and its tablet counterpart. But the two flagship devices are not the only ones to grab all the attention as newly leaked specifications of the Sony Xperia Z4 Ultra and Xperia Z4 Compact have just hit the web. After exclusively reporting that Sony was working on the Compact and Ultra variants of the Z4 smartphone, Android Origin has taken a step forward in detailing the specs of the two rumoured smartphones.
Sony is clearly taking the competition to a higher level with its succeeding products. By packing high-end specs in its smartphones, the tech giant aims to take on the bigger rivals like Apple and Samsung.
Sony Z4 Compact will be the downgraded version of the flagship for those who cannot afford the high-end price tags. The handset will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and a bolstered 3GB RAM. The screen size will be slightly bigger than its predecessor at 4.7 inches and pixels will be 1080p instead of the 720p resolution in the Z3 Compact. To support higher res, Sony will likely pack a bigger 3,000mAh battery, Android Origin reports.
Other specs remain almost identical, with a 20.7 megapixel rear camera, 5MP front shooter, water and dust resistant body and wireless charging.
Sony's bigger Xperia Z4 Ultra will be more of a phablet with its 6.4-inch display like the Z3 Ultra. The screen resolution will get a boost to QHD powered by Snapdragon 810 and 3GB RAM, same like the Compact version. The camera will be of 16-megapixels and a battery measuring anywhere between 3,500mAh and 4,000mAh.
The most notable change that is expected in the Ultra will be its stylus. Like the Galaxy Note series by Samsung, Sony's integration of stylus support will likely grab some attention in the phablet-loving market.
Both Z4 variants will not accompany the Z4 and Z4 Tablet launch as their release is likely to be pushed to a later date, sometime in Q2 next year, the report adds.
