It’s been a long wait for Sony Xperia fans, but their joy will soon be complete as Sony has officially announced its newest flagship, the Sony Xperia Z4, which will be launching “later this summer”. There are official pics that go with the official press release, so we can all get to ogle at the newest Xperia before it hits the market.

The Sony Xperia Z4 spec list is official – it will feature a 5.2-inch full HD (1080p) display, powered by the 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810, as expected. That will be supported by 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage space. The Xperia Z4 will have a microSD slot that can add as much as 128GB for your storage needs. The Xperia Z4 will feature a 20.7MP camera as the main shooter and a wide angle 5.1MP selfie shooter up front. All of this will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop, powered by a 2,930mAh battery. Oh and did we tell you? The Xperia Z4 will feature a metal frame around it.

As for personalization choices, the official colors for the Xperia Z4 will be White, Black, Copper and Aqua Green. As per usual now with the Xperia line, this announcement now quells rumors of the Z4 not being water resistant – the handset is IP6X certified for dust resistance, and IPX8 certified for water resistance. In consumer terms, this means that the Xperia Z4 will survive water projected to it from any direction. It also means that the phone can be submerged to up to 4.92 feet for 30 minutes.
