Sony Pictures was a victim of a major email leak during last December. Notably, North Korea was blamed for the malicious attack. However, details and a photo of the Sony Xperia Z4, also referred as Sony Xperia Z3 Neo or Xperia Z Fourth Generation, reportedly emerged along with the leak. But now, a slew of new Xperia Z4 images from the same source have been leaked by WikiLeaks.

What Is New?

Apparently, WikiLeaks site has published a report on “analysis and search system for The Sony Archives."  Interestingly, the device in focus has been codenamed as “i1-4.” It is worth reminding that, the Xperia Z1 was apparently codenamed as “i1.” Also, the new device is reportedly tagged as a design concept, even though the images look real with all the reported external specifications intact, opines Xperia Blog.

Furthermore, the Xperia Z4 or Xperia Z3 Neo images apparently refer to an image titled “The New Metal Expression” and this image reveals information about the new sleek frame. The leak reportedly reads the following: “Making the metal more solid and sleek, in high polished surfaces created by metal plating, all we do this with a new anodizing technology.”
