It?s been Sony Xperia Z4 that?s making the rounds in the recent month. After the CES 2015 event has finished and the smoke cleared, it?s Sony Xperia Z4 that managed to remain standing along with the other usual suspects?Samsung, Apple, and Microsoft. However, what does the Xperia Z4 bring to the table? Since there are new technological advancements each year in the field of smartphones, it seems only natural to expect that the Xperia Z4 will be bringing something new.

As it appears, some of those innovations will be cosmetic in nature.

The Sony Xperia Z4, spiritual successor to the Z3, will be sporting a new appearance, according to GSM Arena. Some features have been removed and/or swapped positions, while others have been added. Will it be a pleasantly surprising phone, however? Also, let?s take a look at this Design N Trend report about the Z4 and its triple threat of models?the Xperia Z4, Xperia Z4 Tablet, and the Xperia Z4 Walkman.

A New Face

The Sony Xperia Z4 will be getting a facelift reportedly.

The Sony Xperia Z4 has a lot riding on it, especially since the Z3 is still fairly fresh, having come to the market only last October. However, knowing the quickness of turnovers of smartphones in recent memories, Sony has perhaps placed some design innovations into the Z4. As per GSM Arena, the front camera and ambient light has exchanged positions. The speakers have retained the Z2?s design, it seems, while the screen area appears to be a little bit larger than the Z3?s.

Purely cosmetic changes can only entice people a little bit. Hopefully, the Sony Xperia Z4 still knows how to wow, in the same tradition as most of its other brothers did. It also appears that the Z4 has some wow factor in the fact that it comes in threes.

Triple Threat Models

This generation?s line-up also marks the return of a Walkman-exclusive model in the Sony Xperia Z4.

Aside from that, as per Design N Trend, the phone will also come with the Sony Xperia Z4 tablet and the smartphone variant. Music lovers will?however?at least love that a Walkman phone is rumored to be released along with the tablet and phone variants. The last Sony Walkman phone was the Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman, in a generation that still had keypads on them.

Since then, things have changed, as it seems. However, Sony Xperia appears to be covering all their bases. I?d reckon that the smartphone, the tablet, and the Walkman will each have very different features geared towards their respective audiences.

Sony?s Year to Take

With this, Sony seems intent on making this year theirs, as with many others who are making innovations. Sony Xperia, however, has the benefit of their name and the experience Xperia users have had with the models of their Z series. As it appears, Sony is not about to go down without a fight, and what a fight it is.
