Sony Xperia Z4 is Japan only, new global flagship launching in May: Report

Sony launched the Xperia Z4 in Japan yesterday. Reports are emerging online that the flagship smartphone announced is only made for the Japanese market. New global variant coming in May.


According to a Russian blog Hi-tech mail, the newly launched Sony Xperia Z4 is a Japan only variant and a new model will be launched by the end of May for the International markets. Sony will bring out a new flagship smartphone with different specifications.

However, we do not have any information on the difference between the global variant and the Japanese variant, the blog thinks it might look the same. If we go by earlier leaks, it was named Xperia Z fourth-generation and not Xperia Z4. So the naming might be different.
