Not saying there would be pentile display thou.

Now we had it at HD retina. Now if pentile then it will be at Full HD 1080P Retina at around 440ppi. Gues what. It will look damn good and very clear and sharp. Plust pentile still lasts longer

And all the upcommers!,like the HTC M7,LG OPTIMUS G PRO,iPhone 5s or 6,MOTOROLA X PHONE,and so on!.so Samsung take all the time you need!.but to finally produce the greatest smartphone ever!!!!!.and so to beat all the other's!!!!

note: i am not biased towards a particular brand or phone model but i will speak the truth what i realized from past 3 yrs which was rising phase for smartphones...

1. xperia z is sure unbeatable in design but if u take on its perfirmance then dont forget that same specs r in lg optimus G with 720p screen while 1080p screen of z will slow it down a little...

2. lg optimus plus/pro is clocked at higher mhz compared to z thus it will easily beat z in benchmarks...

3. S4 will have exynos octa chip, not the octa core cpu... there z a huge diff. b/w octa core n thz octa chip coz thz chip has 2 quad core cpu, not a single octa core cpu thus it will work like a quad core cpu only n samsung never claimed it as an octa core cpu... they say its exynos octa chip... and since its benchmarks are not yet revealed so its hard to comment qhether it will stand fair against S4 pro chip or not...

4. looking at last 3 yrs performance, samaung sure has upper hand but many people like going for designs n fancy features like watwr n dust resistant, so xperia z may give a hard time...

5. samsung releases its phone on every market while xperia z will look less of the market n also the market which is getting zl will not get z so the share is divided in these two while S4 is alone so considering it S4 has 99% chance of beating Z...

6. availability of samsung phones all over the world makes it dominant over all other brands while same is not true for sony n its a fact, thus Z is again out for this competition if we consider what is fact...

7. again samsung does a lot of marketing for its flagship phone so it has higher advantage of outselling sony...

8. htc will also reveal its flagship which may cause a little push off to both these devices but looking at the job done by sony i dont think they will give any competition to xperia Z while S4 has no threat to htc's flagship...

conclusion: S4 n Z both will be the top 2 android phones of this year n lets see who beats whom... n above points r my own opinion so its not that it is 100% correct as any thing can happenin this world...
n ofcourse i was commenting on competition amongs android based phones so iphone/apple lovers, dont bash me that i havent included ur device in this competition n neglected it, coz i know apple's new flagship will sure beat both these devices in terms of sales...

Love it or hate it...It will be a killer. Believe it or not. It will also be high quality just as all previous version were regardless of what high strung Sony fans want to believe.

Samsung is really a threat to companies. there must be always a war between any newly released model(by other companies) and the current s series phone
from Samsung.

It says all winners come in late may, so probably S4 will be launched Mid may, more in tune with S3 Launch.

LOL at all these desperate xperia knights in here. Not even the Japanese people like sony anymore. If you go to japan, everybody either uses apple or samsung. xperia z is just going to be another fail phone just like every other xperia XD sony should just stick to making playstations

Didn't a Samsung agent long ago stated in twitter that SIV won't be released before April? March-April really is the release for Galaxy Flagship anyway. No need for leaks like this.

That is different from the Xperia Z's scratch resistant glass since its a dragontrail glass. The Go might have scratched easily because there's a coating on it. The one that get's removed from the screen is the coating. Hope Sammy still uses the Gorilla for their S4 so that it will break easily like my S3's upper face part! Haha! I sold my S3 to get the One X+ and I'm going to change it to Xperia Z! ;)
