This is according to @ViziLeaks. Apart from saying that the upcoming XPERIA Z4 will be clad in metal, the Twitter account also says that the “iconic” Sony power button will be redesigned with a “built in touch fingerprint sensor.” Additionally, the Twitter account says that the smartphone will be released in September.

We’ve learned from previous reports that the Sony XPERIA Z4 will sport a 5.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, a 20.7-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 32-64 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot (previous reports claimed it would not come with the feature), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 2 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, an Adreno 430 GPU, 3 GB of RAM, and a non-removable 3,400 mAh battery. It is said to be IP68-certified just like its predecessor, which means it can be submerged in a meter of water for as much as 30 minutes. It is said to measure 146.3 x 71.9 x 7.2 mm. It will run Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box.

HTC One M9 for Windows coming?

In 2014, HTC released the HTC One (M8) for Windows (see below), a variant of the HTC One (M8) that runs Windows Phone 8.1. According to a new report, the Taiwanese phone maker is cooking up the HTC One M9 for Windows this year.

This is according to a report from Windows Central. According to the site, HTC CFO and President of Global Sales, Chialing Chan, said at the HTC One M9+ launch event in India that the Taiwanese firm is working with Microsoft, keeping track of how Windows “shapes up and where it fits in the HTC lineup.” This said, it wouldn’t surprise us if the this meant working on the HTC One M9 for Windows and launching the device in the near future.

Like the HTC One (M8) for Windows, the HTC One M9 for Windows will be no different from the Android-powered HTC One M9, apart from the software. This means that it is likely to sport the same 5-inch 1080p screen, a 20-megapixel rear-facing camera made by Toshiba, a 4-megapixel Ultrapixel front-facing camera, front-facing BoomSound speakers developed by Dolby Audio, 32/64 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot (as much as 128 GB), Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor under the hood with four cores clocked at 2 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, 3 GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 2,840 mAh battery.

Unfortunately, we can’t confirm if the HTC One M9 for Windows will make its debut this year, so take this information with a pinch of salt.

LG G4 sports a camera with six-layer lens – two times bigger than the G3’s

The upcoming LG G4’s 16-megapixel camera module is made in-house by LG Innotek. The Korean phone maker claims that this new camera module can collect 80% more light compared to the camera module of the LG G3. So how does it do it? Let’s find out.

lg-g4-leak34

BusinessKorea reports that the LG G4’s camera collects 80% more light than the G3, since LG’s next flagship comes with a much bigger lens module.

The G4’s 16-megapixel camera module sports a wide f/1.8 aperture that is two times bigger than that on the G3. It also sports a six-element lens that promises “high-precision, large-diameter module structure.” It also comes with an ultrathin 0.1mm glass blue filter, which prevents infrared emission from penetrating the lens, ruining the color presentation.

According to previous reports, other LG G4 specs include a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD) (pixel density of 534 ppi), an 8-megapixel selfie-centric front-facing camera, 32 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot (as much as 128 GB), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 64-bit hexa-core processor with four ARM Cortex-A53 and two ARM Cortex-A57 cores, an Adreno 418 GPU, 4 GB of RAM, a 3,000 mAh battery, and a fingerprint scanner found on the back of the device. It will run Android 5.0 (Lollipop). It is said to measure 149.1 × 75.3 × 8.9 mm.

The LG G4 will be officially introduced on the 28th of April.
