Purported Sony Xperia Z4/ Xperia Z3+ spotted at the FCC – U.S. launch imminent?
Sony's latest flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z4, may soon be headed to the U.S. if a new FCC listing is anything to go by.
The Xperia Z4 launch was quite curious and raised lots of questions among fans, especially since Sony unveiled the smartphone so quietly and only for Japan. Moreover, the Xperia Z4 doesn't boast great changes over its predecessor, as many expected. The new iteration does improve on some aspects, but it still shares many specifications with the Xperia Z3.
Sony has made no mention yet regarding a global debut for its new Xperia Z4, but a U.S. release may be just around the corner. A new device with FCCID number PY7-PM0791 was recently spotted at the FCC, submitted on May 9 and approved on May 11. It is believed to be the Xperia Z4, which is rumored to launch worldwide as the Xperia Z3+.
The handset seems to have passed a number of tests so far, according to the FCC listing, including the wireless LAN (which can reach up to 5.xGHz), the standard Bluetooth connectivity, RFID frequency, and NFC support.
The listing makes no mention of other specifications, so it's difficult to tell at this point just what this handset will have to bring to the table. It also remains unclear when this purported Xperia Z4, or Xperia Z3+, will officially make its debut in the U.S., or which other markets it will reach afterward. Nevertheless, the FCC listing suggests an imminent launch, as the FCC is usually among the last stops before a device hits the market.
The Sony Xperia Z4 unveiled in Japan, meanwhile, features the same 5.2-inch full HD display as its predecessor, packs a 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor paired with 3GB of RAM, has 32GB of internal storage capacity expandable up to 128GB via microSD, and a 2,930 mAh battery. Other specs of the Xperia Z4 include a 20.7-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel wide-angle front shooter, IPX and IPX5/IPX8 certification (the highest dust and waterproof ratings) and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.
The U.S. variant may come with the same specifications, or they may also be slightly altered. With no official word from Sony so far, however, it's best to take everything with a grain of salt for now.
