The Sony Xperia Z4 is expected to be unveiled at the upcoming Mobile World Conference 2015 (MWC 2015) to be held in Barcelona before launching a few weeks later.

Sony has now scheduled a press conference for 2 March, giving a strong hint that it would announce its flagship device on the day.
Chinese sources have revealed pictures that are believed to be front-facing panel of the Xperia Z4, according to a report by GSM Dome (via Weibo). The device sports a mounted display and looks good but it is very similar to its predecessors, and its dual-front speakers placement is like that of the Xperia Z2.

The Sony Xperia Z4 is expected to come with features like a 5.2-inch 1440 x 2560px Triluminos display, Snapdragon 810 processor, Android 5.0 Lollipop, 20.7MP camera, 3,400mAh battery and water resistance, according to GSMArena.
However, Tech Radar reported that the device might sport a 4.7-inch screen with other features like IP68 water and dust proof certification and LTE Cat 9 connectivity. Earlier reports claimed that two models of the device would be launched - one with a Quad HD display and other with Full HD resolution. It is expected to sport a 5.4-inch or 5.5-inch screen, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, run on Android 5.0 Lollipop, come packed with 32GB internal memory and 4GB RAM, house a 20.7MP main camera and 4.8MP front snapper, 3420 mAh battery, and Qi Wireless Charging.
