Leaked Sony Xperia XZ4 render gives us another look at the likely design

Recently a few images supposedly showing the Sony Xperia XZ4 have started emerging and now another one has joined them, this time showing the rear and sides of the phone.

Shared by leaker @UniverseIce (who has a solid track record), it’s not clear exactly where the image came from but as it shows the Sony Xperia XZ4 in a case it’s probably a render made by a casemaker who may or may not have inside information.

You can see in the image that the Sony Xperia XZ4 has a triple-lens rear camera and quite a tall, narrow design, which probably points to a 21:9 aspect ratio – something which has been rumored before.

You can also see that all the buttons are seemingly on the right edge, there’s a port (likely a USB-C one) on the bottom edge, and the camera sticks out slightly from the back.

It’s all lining up

There’s not much else to take from this image but it lines up with what we’ve seen before, so while we’d certainly take it with a pinch of salt with no dissenting designs there’s a good chance this is the real deal.

With the phone possibly landing at MWC 2019 in February we’d expect to keep seeing more of it in the coming weeks. Hopefully we’ll learn more about the specs too.

One source claims that it has a 6.5-inch screen, and we can take an educated guess that it will use a Snapdragon 855 chipset, but that’s about all we’ve heard specs-wise.

The accused murderer of backpacker Grace Millane has appeared in court, but it’s illegal to report who he is

Grace Millane

The man accused of murdering British backpacker Grace Millane appeared in court in New Zealand on Monday, though he cannot be named publicly.
The suspect’s lawyer argues that his name must be kept secret to grant him a fair trial.
The judge in the case is trying to overturn the ban on naming him, but it remains in force until the appeal can be heard.
Millane had been missing since December 1, and police said on Saturday that they were charging the man with her murder.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern apologized to Millane’s family. She said: “Your daughter should have been safe here and she wasn’t, and I’m sorry for that.”

A man accused of murdering 22-year-old backpacker Grace Millane in New Zealand has appeared in court, but local law means that it is illegal for him to be named in the media.

Grace Millane, from the town of Wickford in southeastern England, was last seen in a hotel in the city of Auckland on Saturday, December 1.

Police had been interviewing a 26-year-old man in connection with her disappearance and said on Saturday, December 8 that they would charge him with her murder.

The man’s name has been suppressed after a request from his lawyer, Ian Brookie, Sky News reported. Brookie argued that anonymity was needed for a fair trial.

The New Zealand Herald newspaper published this photograph of the accused, in which his face is pixelated to comply with the ban:

The judge in the case, Evangelos Thomas, rejected the request. But Brookie is appealing, and the ban on naming him remains in force until the appeal can be heard.
