Sony is tightlipped about its flagship Xperia Z4 release but the handset has been leaked at several instances giving us an idea of what it may look like at the launch. The latest official-looking renders of the Xperia Z4 leaked by tipster @OnLeaks offer the best look at the handset, Xperia Blog reports. This adds to the pile of leaked images we've seen in the past but cannot be confirmed as the final design as it lacks authenticity.
Sony was widely expected to launch the Xperia Z4 at the MWC 2015 trade show, but the company has decided to stick to annual upgrade cycle. This means Sony fans will have to wait until September for an official look at the handset, at the IFA show in Germany. Since the wait is stretched, leaked images should keep the anticipated crowd calm.
The newly-leaked images show the device from different angles. It clearly shows Sony is preserving the signature design language for the Xperia Z4 too, which offers great look along with dust and water resistance. The dedicated camera icon is intact, for those who wish to snap special moments without having to launch the app.
According to a report from HDBlog, sources previously revealed that the Xperia Z4 will lack microSD card support. The new images show a single port flap, but it remains to be known whether it will house nano SIM as well as micro SD ports. Surprisingly, there is no Sony or Xperia logo on the back of the phone, suggesting this could be just a test build and a final version will bring more changes aboard. Also, there's a hole at the bottom of the device, next to the USB port, but the function of that remains a mystery.
There are reports suggesting this is possibly a third speaker, microphone or for lanyard. But rest of the hardware seems intact, such as the headphone jack is placed at the top corner and stereo speakers take both edges
