Sony’s line of waterproof, dustproof, and lifeproof smartphones isn’t showing any signs of stopping. The brand recently announced the upcoming next entry in the line, the Sony Xperia Z4, now slated only to come out in Japan but with information on a wider release probably coming soon.
The wheel isn’t being reinvented in the Sony Xperia Z4, with the smartphone coming equipped with the same 5.2-inch display as previous entries in the Xperia Z series. It does have a thinner 6.9mm body and several technical upgrades, though, so it might be a worthwhile replacement for your old Xperia phone.
As I mentioned up at the top, the announcement of the Sony Xperia Z4 smartphone is restricted to Japan, so to read the press release at the official Sony site here you’ll need to be brushed up on your Japanese. But hopefully some more info on the phone’s release in additional markets will arrive soon.
