CES 2015: Is Sony showing off the Xperia Z4 in secret?

There’s been a lot of talk over whether or not Sony would be officially unveiling the Xperia Z4 at CES this year, and so far we haven’t seen any new phones from it (the overpriced Walkman doesn’t count). But there are rumours flying around that the Xperia Z4 is hiding somewhere at the show.

According to @Ricciolo1, the self proclaimed ‘Teknological Secret Agent’, claims that despite Sony not showing off any smartphones to the public it has been showing something off behind closed doors to a select group of people. There’s no evidence to support the claim, or even any to prove the Xperia Z4 is the something in question, but TechRadar points out that @Ricciolo1 does have a fairly good track record when it comes to Sony leaks.

So why keep it private? Well for one thing the phone probably isn’t ready to be officially unveiled to the public and journalists alike. But a lot of important people in the tech industry do come to CES from across the world, and that means it could be one of the few times where a select group of important people can all be put in the same room together.

Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long before it’s officially announced, and the Mobile World Congress in March seems like the ideal place for that to happen. Until then we’ll keep you updated with any new Xperia Z4 news that reveals itself.
