Xperia Z4 details spill: Evolution, not Revolution

Sony's next smartphone may well be the first to leak its parts this season as we prepare for the whole 2015 batch. What we're seeing here is said to be the Sony Xperia Z4, the next in a line of devices that look so extremely similar, you'd be forgiven for mistaking one for any one of the others. This device is tipped to be working with a front panel here so similar to its predecessor that it's even more difficult to tell them apart than the last two.

Sony Xperia Z3 arrives at T-Mobile

Earlier this month T-Mobile revealed that the Sony Xperia Z3 smartphone would be arriving on its shelves October 29, and as promised the handset went live on the carrier's site yesterday. As with most phones, subscribers have the option to buy it outright from the carrier or shell out in piecemeal fashion via monthly payments (for those who qualify). In case you missed it, we got our hands on Sony's sleek smartphone back in September, detailing all it has to offer alongside a large gallery of the device.

Sony Xperia Z3v Review

Sony Xperia Z3v Review

Over the past week we've had a look at the third in a line of Sony's "Z" devices in so many years, this one called the "Z3" when it's not carried by Verizon. This version of the Xperia Z3 goes by the name "Z3v", appropriately, as it runs on Verizon's 4G LTE network. The only differences between this "v" model and the standard "Z3" is the added thickness (negligible) and the reason for the difference in size: the addition of wireless charging capabilities. This device is massive, sleek, and quite clearly meant to compete with the finest smartphones ever released.

Fans of Sony's Xperia line of devices have something to look forward to starting today.

Strangely, only the white color option seems to be available if you buy the tablet directly from Sony, with no sign of the black variant we put through our hands-on test.

Sony: Android Lollipop will be on all Xperia Z devices

Sony: Android Lollipop will be on all Xperia Z devices

Though not easy to come by stateside, the Sony Xperia Z lineup makes a strong showing elsewhere in the world. Since re-dedicating themselves to mobile, Sony has made strides in improving the overall experience on their handsets. An impressive 20.7MP camera adorns the newest Xperia Z flagships, and their Android overlay is slight and appealing. Updates are sometimes the foil of an Android OEM and user, though, as the company struggles to decide how to support legacy handsets. Sony isn’t struggling with that decision at all, and will update their entire Xperia Z lineup.

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact released in USA without carriers

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact released in USA without carriers

This week the folks at Sony have decided to go big with the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact - but not quite so big as to released the device with a carrier in the USA. This machine is very, very similar to its larger brother, the Z3, but here comes with a smaller display and off-contract pricing.
