Possible Sony Xperia Z4 specs revealed by benchmark results

We don’t know when the Sony Xperia Z4 will launch, but we might now know its entire spec sheet.

That’s thanks to a benchmark test result that appears to detail nearly every aspect of the upcoming smartphone.

The GFXBench report (via Phone Arena) details a handset code-named Sony E6553, which seems to be running Google’s Android 5.0.2 operating system.

The device also carries a 1920 x 1080 display measuring 5-inches, which is exactly the same spec as the Xperia Z3.

The chip is an 1.9GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, powered by Adreno 430 graphics with 3GB of RAM on board.

Storage is 23GB – that means the device will actually carry 32GB of storage, with 9GB portioned off to carry the operating system and base software.

The rear camera will use a 19-megapixel image sensor capable of shooting full HD video (and probably 4K too, if the Z3 is anything to go by).

The front-facing camera, meanwhile, will use a 4.8-megapixel sensor, also capable of shooting 1920 x 1080p footage.

Additional features include an accelerometer, barometer, Bluetooth, compass, GPS, gyroscope, light sensor, NFC, pedometer, proximity sensor, one SIM card slot, and a Wi-Fi modem.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem as though there’s been a big step up from the Xperia Z3’s spec sheet.

The main difference is that this new device will use the newer Snapdragon 810, instead of the Z3’s Snapdragon 801.

That might not impress some however, as the Snapdragon 810 has been slammed with rumours of overheating over the past few months.

We’re expecting a September launch for the Xperia Z4, so we worry that this spec sheet might not be enough to impress against the Christmas period handsets of 2015.
