Sony Xperia Z4 range makes it through Japanese certification

Xperia Z3

If there was ever any reasonable doubt, reports on Friday seemed to confirm Sony will launch its next generation Xperia Z4 smartphone at MWC 2015.

The yet-to-be-announced device has taken a trip through the certification body in its home country of Japan.

GSMArena reports the handset has been approved in three versions, for Japan’s NTT DoCoMo, KDDI and SoftBank mobile networks.

Apparently the devices will all support voice over LTE and boast support for the Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac standards. While that’s not exactly groundbreaking news, there’s little else to glean from the certification other than the certification itself.

Recent speculation has suggested Sony’s Xperia Z4 will boast a 5.2-inch QHD screen, a 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor and 4GB of RAM.

It is thought it’ll come with Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, a 20.7 megapixel camera and, just like most recent Xperia launches, will boast great waterproofing tech.

The launch is also expected to be accompanied by two other Xperia Z4 devices - one larger and one smaller.

The Xperia Z4 Compact could also arrive at MWC in March, with a 4.7-inch screen, while recent reports have also suggested an Xperia Z4 Ultra with a hulking 6.44-inch display may also be on the way.

The releases may be among the last handsets ever to come out of Sony, given reports this week suggesting the company may choose to sell off its mobile business.

Earlier this week, TrustedReviews writer Jon Mundy opined on why this would be a great idea.
