Leaks have become a commonplace occurrence with new technology drops and anything else that industry professionals and general tech enthusiasts might find interesting, and this includes the large array of smartphones and other mobile devices that make it to market every single year. One device that has been getting its fair share of leaks in the past few months is the fourth generation of the Sony Xperia Z device, and building upon what we have already seen from past leaks, there are more new images that have surfaced today that could be of the Xperia Z3 successor.

In the very first image there is something noticeable that has been talked about as one of the rumored features of the upcoming flagship device from Sony, and that’s the use of a bottom mounted charging port. If this seems insignificant, it’s likely you may not have used or seen any Sony devices before, which tend to have the charging ports on the side of the device behind a tiny door which you can use to seal up the port. That doesn’t appear to be the case in this image. It also looks as if the charging port might be USB Type C, but that is only a guess based on the way the port looks in this image.
The new leaks also show off a small portion of the screen, as well as the emphasize parts of the frame on the device which look much more like a polished metal than what was used on the Sony Xperia Z3, although it does appear the corners are about the same roundness as before. What appears odd, is the icons in the app dock on the screen, and the navigation buttons. The navigation buttons are not from Lollipop, (as the Xperia Z4 should be running) and for that matter the icons are older versions as well. The Playstion Mobile app also appears out of place since Sony is shutting down Playstation Mobile this Fall and they will no longer offer the service. While we’re not quite sure what to make of these just yet, they could be images of an upcoming Xperia Z4, or, it’s possible these are leaked renders of the Sony Xperia Z3 Neo that has been rumored over the past week or two.
