Leaked Sony Xperia Z4 chassis suggests an even thinner device without a microSD slot
FutureSupplier have compared the alleged Z4 chassis next to that of the Z3, and have found that it is about 0.04 inches (1 mm) thinner, putting its depth at something like 0.25 in (6.3 mm). That would make the Z4 thinner than both the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy S6/S6 edge.This time around, however, we can glean far more information about the Xperia Z4 design and possible features (or lack thereof). For starters, the folks at
But the reduction in thickness might come at a price – from what we're told and shown, it appears possible (but unlikely) that Sony has ditched waterproofing – a highlight feature of its product line – for the microUSB port has been moved to the bottom and is no longer protected by the customary flap the company has so far utilized. That said, do keep in mind that it is possible to waterproof a microUSB port without using a flap. Furthermore, there appears to be no slot for a microSD card, which could mean that Sony will be mirroring Samsung's approach with the S6/S6 edge. The only other spotted difference had to do with the top microphone's placement – it might no longer reside right next to the audio jack and instead occupy the opposite side of the frame on the top.
