Sony announced that the Xperia Z4v smartphone is headed to Verizon, back in June. The Xperia Z4v release date specific to the U.S. was reported to be sometime in summer. So far, there is no news from both the companies. But then, a YouTube user apparently managed to get an Xperia Z4v. He used it for close to a week and in the process, made a video explaining the device. Android Police was the first to identify the video, but the user has now made the video private.
Although the Sony Xperia Z4v is a solid device, it does not stand-out among the flagships released this year, according to the video. The user apparently mentioned that the housed Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor overheats occasionally, however, it is definitely not a major problem. The handset sports a 20.7-megapixel rear-facing camera unit, which seems to have worked very well. In addition there is also a generous 5-megapixel front-facing shooter for selfies and video chats.
Speaking of other Xperia Z4v specifications, this handset comes with a 5.2-inch display with 1,440 x 2,560 pixels screen resolution. It is worth noting that the Z4v is reportedly Sony's first Quad HD smartphone, followed by the newly announced Xperia Z5 Premium. On the software end, it runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop, along with the custom Xperia UI on top of it.
The Xperia Z4v comes backed by 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage capacity. As expected, in true Sony style, there is a microSD card slot for further expansion. When it comes to design, the smartphone is reportedly thicker and heavier than the predecessor Xperia Z3.
However, the handset flaunts a premium finish, complete with a water proof exterior. Phone Arena points out that this neat device has no hump around the exterior. Apart from these features, Sony has also added a solid Li-Ion 3,000 mAh battery unit and a built-in wireless charging option.
