Blurry photo of Sony Xperia XZ4 leaks on Japanese tech blog WEEKS before launch

SONY’S next smartphone is being kept a closely guarded secret – but an image of the handset may have been leaked.

A blurry photo of what’s claimed to be the long-rumoured Sony Xperia XZ4 has turned up online.

The image was originally posted to Weibo, a Chinese social media site roughly equivalent to Twitter.

It was then picked up by a Japanese technology blog (based in Sony’s homeland) called Sumahoinfo.

The image is extremely poor quality, so it’s hard to garner much info.

Perhaps the biggest takeaway is that the phone appears to be very long – an unusual trait for smartphones generally.

Rumour has it that the phone will feature a gargantuan 6.5-inch screen.

That’s the same size display as the one on the iPhone XS Max, although Apple’s handset appears to be shorter and wider than this Sony device.

The pictured Sony handset is also running on Google’s new Android 9.0 Pie operating system, which has the latest software features available.

Sadly, it’s impossible to verify the authenticity of this “leaked” photo, so it could be a complete hoax.

However, it’s worth considering the image, given that Sony is rumoured to include a large display on its new handset – and the image seems to support that.

In any case, take all rumours with a pinch of salt for now.

We asked Sony for comment on the image, but the Japanese tech giant declined to comment.

However, we’re likely to hear more from Sony next month.

The company is hosting a press conference at MWC 2019, an annual tech show held in Barcelona in late February.

Some of the biggest tech companies will converge on the city during the event, showing off their latest gadgets.

As well as a new Sony phone, we’re also expecting the show to feature the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the long-awaited Samsung folding phone.

Sony is also working on a brand new console, but it might not be called the PS5.

Rival Samsung is preparing its first 5G phone for launch in the near future.

Meanwhile, Apple fans are eagerly awaiting the rumoured 2019 release of the iPhone 11.

  2. Brigitte Macron received Carla Bruni and Valérie Trierweiler for lunch Thursday at the presidential palace.

    On Thursday, the First Lady Brigitte Macron invited Elysee Carla Bruni and Valérie Trierweiler for a lunch. On the occasion of this meeting, Carla Bruni and Valérie Trierweiler had to meet the staff members of the Palace they met when they were living there. In the same spirit, Brigitte Macron had already received at the Elysée Anne-Aymone Giscard d’Estaing and in September 2017, Bernadette Chirac and her daughter Claude.

    Brigitte Macron had then reserved small attentions to the former tenant of the palace. The favorite service of Bernadette Chirac was thus set on the table, reported at the time “Le Parisien”. In the same way, about twenty members of staff (lingergers, florists, cooks, ushers …) who knew the wife of Jacques Chirac and who still work at the Elysée waited for him in the library. A witness of this reunion evoked “a very moving moment”. “Madame Chirac was delighted. She had a kind word for everyone, “he continued.

    Brigitte Macron then showed her office and some pieces of the palace to Bernadette Chirac who lived there for 12 years. The latter was so pleased with this lunch that she had returned the next day at the Elysee, a bouquet of flowers in hand to thank Brigitte Macron.
