As with both the Z3 and Z2, the device is waterproof and dust proof and sports a 20 megapixel camera on the back. It also has a 5.1MP “selfie” camera on the front.
It comes with a 2930mA battery and 32GB of internal storage with room for a microSD card.
The Z4 will launch in Japan in four colours; white, black, copper and aqua green, although not details about a UK release were given.
