Sony Xperia Z4v is officially cancelled
If you were counting on getting yourself a brand new Xperia Z4v smartphone, forget it — it’s over. The Sony Xperia Z4v was exclusively announced for Verizon back in June but following a number of delayed and shifted launch dates, it appears that the device has been cancelled as the listing no longer seen on the Verizon website.
The Sony mobile phone has appeared in a number of hands on videos after the official announcement but doesn’t seem to have what it takes in terms of demand to hit the shelves proper. Sony has since launched the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Premium models and these new flagships have already started retailing a few places.
For the records, the Sony Xperia Z4v was the first Sony smartphone to offer 2K resolution. Since the Xperia Z5 Premium offers a 4K display and is available on sale, Verizon and Sony apparently agreed not to bother themselves with the Z4v.
The Xperia Z4v was announced with a 5.2″ display with 565 PPI, 3GB of RAM, a 64 bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset, 20.7-megapixel main camera, 5-megapixel front-facing selfie camera, expandable storage and a 3,000mAh battery. Running on Android 5.0 Lollipop OS, the handset features NFC, Bluetooth 4.1, AGPS, and packs support for Verizon’s 4G and CDMA network frequencies.
