The Sony Xperia Z4 is set to complete this year’s flagship team when it launches sometime in the summer. It will come bearing few surprises though, as the device was already leaked in press images, as well as spotted live, multiple times.
In another round of revealing photos, we now get to see a set of bumper cases for Sony’s upcoming high-end device. Case manufacturers are by necessity a step or two ahead of the general public and often provide valuable intel on future devices.
This time the cases bring yet another confirmation on the omission of the magnetic charging connector, as you certainly wouldn’t want to remove your case for each charging session. Apparently it was deemed unnecessary, now that the microUSB port has gone flapless and delivers the hassle-free charging, that the magnetic solution was there for.

Other than that, the controls placement is also as previously expected, with a central cutout for the power button on the right side. Next to it is volume rocker, and the dedicated camera shutter button is further down, towards the end.
None of this has much bearing on the actual launch of the handset, though. If anything, we can hope that the quantity of leaks suggests a nearing announcement.
