Sony on Monday announced its next generation of flagship smartphone, the Android 5.0 Lollipop powered Xperia Z4. Considering it debuted barely a half year after its predecessor we shouldn’t look for too many changes in the hardware. Indeed, that seems to be the case as this year’s model is a slightly evolved release.
We’ve put together a handy chart to show the key differences between the Sony Xperia Z3 and the Sony Xperia Z4.

There are a number of details that are identical between the two models including the color options, waterproof and dust rating, and NFC. There are, of course, very slight differences in the dimensions. The Xperia Z4 is a smidge thinner and, therefore, lighter.
