Sony to Launch its new Phone Xperia Z4v Banded to Work on Verizon

Sony Corp today announced that it would soon launch its new Phone Xperia Z4v, which would work on the Verizon Wireless network. The new offering is expected to put Sony back on track to take on its rivals, Samsung and HTC.

The new offering by Sony is an improvement over the international Z3+ and Z4, both of which have mere 1,920-by-1,080 screens. The Xperia Z4v has a resolution of 2,560-by-1,600, 5.2-inch screen and a 20.7-megapixel camera. It measures 5.7 by 2.8 by 0.33 inches and is not a super-slim phone.

The new phone comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, faster LTE, better low-light performance and a wide-angle front-facing camera. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor enables quick charging and 4K video recording. With respect to the refurbished front camera, Sony has improved low-light performance and made it wider angle for group shots. The operating system that this model sports is Android’s Lollipop OS.

The phone would run on Verizon, which is the largest wireless telecommunications provider in the United States. The phone might not work optimally on AT&T and T-Mobile, however, international roaming would be available, with LTE bands 2/3/4/5/7/13/20.

As for the music, which has always been of prime concern to Sony, Xperia Z4v has been paired with a new hi-res Bluetooth codec called LDAC, which can only be supported with one set of headphones, the new Sony MDR-1ABT headphones. However, to ease consumer experience, other headphones through the ‘automatic headphone compensation’, would be able to equalize sound according to the kind of headphones.

The phone is expected next summer, at a probable price of $199.
