Sony's new flagship phone, the Xperia Z4, is poised to take the world by storm, but some of what we have been hearing about it is more rumor that it is actual facts about the would-be phablet.  One of the more confusing rumors comes from a site that has the URL of xperiaz4.com.  Here is a list of what this site says are the features of the Xperia Z4

The Xperia Z4 will have a 6.3 inch display with ultra 4K HD resolution, four times as rich as 1080p.  The Sony Xperia Z4 could also be highly waterproof at up to 100 meters, which is IP68 certified for scuba divers.  The battery is expected to be quite large at 5000 mAh, and the camera is packed with 27 Megapixels with a G+ sensor (the front-facing camera should be at 10 Megapixels).  It should be no surprise that it comes with a fingerprint scanner, but perhaps the biggest surprise that it could be loaded with a future version of Android OS known as Milkshake. 

Milkshake would be one step up from Lollipop, the current version of Android that still isn't on most Android phones.  In fact, even the Samsung Galaxy S5 still runs Android 4.4.4 or KitKat, with a due date for the 5.0 upgrade expected in early 2015.  A lot of sources like Android Pit conclude that the Xperia Z4 might show up sometime in April 2015, perhaps in time for Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona. 

Most of the sources seem to disagree on the screen size and camera but agree on the presence of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor inside.  Android Pit seems to say it will be 5.2 inches with a 20 Megapixel camera.  Most agree on its ability to be waterproof, or at least very water resistant.  

In comparison to the Z3, it would appear that the Z4 might have a change as far as the front speaker is concerned.  It has gone from top center to the top right, according to Android Pit.  Realty Today states that Sony could be planning to remove the MicroSD card and flap cover that is a Z series tradition.  In its place will be the possibility of Qi wireless charging.
