    Do you folks remember the massive Sony leak which occurred late last year? Hackers release over 30,000 internal documents from Sony's primary corporate database. It turns out some tenacious internet bloggers with a great deal of time on their hands poured through those documents and found some juicy intel, which wasn't yet revealed. What they found may confirm yesterday's rumor that Sony plans to release an all-metal design case and fingerprint power button sensor on their Xperia Z4.

    As you can see from the image above (and several in the source link below)an unnamed Sony smartphone has an all-metal body and a conspicuously large power button. What do you think? Does this make you want to hold out for a Sony device later this year?

    I'm still waiting for the phone that ditches physical buttons altogether.

    That phone looks very nice, but imagine if that physical button were replaced with a touchscreen scanner.

    I really like the way this looks. Less top and bottom bezel compared to the Z3.

    Doesn't matter how good it looks. Vzw will mess it up.
