Sony Xperia XZ4 case compared to the size of an Xperia XZ Premium

Peter, 10 January 2019

The Sony Xperia XZ4 will have a 21:9 screen with a 6.5” diagonal, making the phone rather tall – 166.9mm. That’s almost a centimeter more than the iPhone XS Max (6.5” as well, but 19.5:9). Naturally, there’s some worry that the new Sony flagship will be too big.

Using a case for the phone a poster on Weibo compared it to the Xperia XZ Premium and it doesn’t seem that big. Sure, it’s taller, but it’s narrower too – keep in mind that the case is larger than the XZ4 itself. So, it should be fairly pocketable.

In the hand, width is more important. The Xperia XZ4 will actually be a hair narrower than the current XZ3 – 72.4mm vs. 73mm. If you can hold the XZ3, the XZ4 will pose no trouble.

The rest is as expected, including a side-mounted fingerprint reader and the bottom firing speaker. The new Xperia flagship will probably still offer stereo sound, but the thinner vertical bezels mean no room for front-firing speakers.

We’re not seeing a hole for the 3.5mm headphone jack, though (some rumors suggested that it’s making a comeback). On the plus side, the Xperia XZ4 will be Sony’s first phone with a triple camera.
