Verizon will be the first US wireless carrier to offer a version of the Sony Xperia Z4 smartphone this summer.
The Sony Xperia Z4v for Verizon has the same basic specs as the Xperia Z4 Sony unveiled in April, including a 5.2 inch display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, and a waterproof design. But the Verizon model has a higher-resolution display, a slightly thicker case, and a bigger battery.
The Sony Xperia Z4 has a 2560 x 1440 pixel IPS display, a 20.7MP rear camera, a 5MP front camera, 32GB of built-in storage, and a microSDXC card slot for removable storage. It has a water and dust-resistant case and can safely be submerged in up to 1.5 meters of water for 30 minutes.
The phone measures 8.6mm thick, which is 1.7mm thicker than the original Xperia Z4 and it weighs 160 grams, compared with 144 grams for the original.
On the bright side, not only does the Verizon model have a 3,000 mAh battery instead of a 2930 mAh battery and a higher-resolution display. It also supports Qi wireless charging.
