Rumored Sony Xperia Z4 specs

Now that the Xperia Z3 has been released in the market. The Sony Xperia Z4 is expected to launch towards the end of March 2015, no surprise here given past releases in previous years. AndroidOrigin earlier today released what it says are leaked specifications of the Xperia Z4.
The Xperia Z4 is believed to include a 5.5-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440) display, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 MSM8994 64-bit chipset (octa-core processor, Adreno 430 GPU) and 4GB RAM. The Xperia Z4 will also apparently be the first Sony Xperia device to sport a curved Exmor RS CMOS imaging sensor.
Other features include 32GB internal storage, a dedicated amp for audio and the continuation of Sony’s OmniBalance design language.
As mentioned earlier, these are only rumors, so take with a pinch of salt. However, if there is any truth to these rumors, it sounds like the Xperia Z4 would be a stunning device. Some of it does sound fanciful, for example we’re not sure a dedicated amp would be possible whilst maintaining a slim form factor.
Additionally, whilst we have longed for 32GB internal storage to become a standard for Sony’s flagship devices this has not happened yet. There are also no signs of the curved imaging sensors that were announced earlier this year. Although depending on the timing of when the Xperia Z4 will launch, there is a good chance it may arrive with a curved sensor.

Nexus Player passes through FCC

Google announced Nexus Player just few days ago along with Nexus 6 and Nexus 9. Google’s Nexus Player is the first product to run Android TV. It went on preorder, but was put down in few hours.
The Nexus Player was a surprise announcement, but the bigger surprise might have been that the device was up for preorder for less than a day before being pulled, because the device hadn't yet passed through FCC certification. It is illegal for retailers to sell any Wi-Fi enabled device without FCC approval, even if it is a preorder. Luckily, it looks like Google can get back on track, because the FCC posted the Nexus Player approval.
If we talk about its technical specifications, it comes with 1.8GHz Quad Core processor, Intel® Atom™ Imagination PowerVR Series 6 Graphics 2D/3D Engine, 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of storage, and yeah, also a remote. Google Nexus Player will cost $99 and will be available only in US and Canada at the start.

Apple wants to cut the price of Beats Music subscriptions

Apple has reportedly pitched music labels a new lower pricing structure for its Beats Music service, arguing that subscriptions could grow considerably if the price could be lowered to just $5 per month.
The tech titan realized that the average iTunes customer spends a maximum of $60 a year to download music. That works out to $5 per month. Even if cutting the price in half doesn't bring in enough new blood to make up for the price cut, Apple claims that its dedicated subscribers will help keep revenue constant.
Meanwhile, Spotify has announced today a 50% discount for accounts opened by family members. If you are paying the usual $10 per month for Spotify's premium account, your wife, brother, sister or husband need only pay $5. The reason why these music streamers are so eager to wield an ax on pricing, is that sales of downloaded music are not only dropping, but the pace of the decline is accelerating. No doubt that the other streamers are egging Apple on, since any new deal reached with the recording industry will become the industry standard.
