Rumor: Sony to release the Xperia Z4 in September, still has SD card support after all?
Fret not, at least we have a couple of leaked renders to gawk at – it seems the Z4 will be very similar to the Xperia Z3, but with thinner bezels and slightly slimmer body. Additionally, HDBlog's sources say that the Xperia Z4 will not be losing its SD card support, contrary to earlier rumors, sparked by an alleged leak of the Z4's chassis.
So, we are guessing that Sony came to the conclusion that refreshing a flagship line twice per year is both a bit too costly, and possibly discouraging to new customers (why buy the 3-month old flagship, when there's one coming in another 3 months?). Either that, or it was pleased with the Xperia Z3's reception and sales, and decided to run with it for a bit longer.
