Sony is very close to releasing its next-generation handset under its Xperia lineup: the Z4. One of the more interesting parts about rumors of the device is that it would it would feature a metal body - a first for Sony on their flagship lineup.
The latest rumor claims that high-end device will indeed feature a metal chassis, alongside a fingerprint scanner, though, embedded on the power key.
It seems that Sony is the latest handset maker to implement a fingerprint sensor on their next-generation flagship device. Earlier last week, HTC unveiled the One M9+ with an embedded fingerprint scanner on the physical home button.
High-end smartphone makers like Apple and Samsung have well adopted this unique feature. In fact, Apple's fingerprint-sensing feature, Touch ID, continues to work fine for many. However, despite the security of the biometric tech, hackers have successfully proved that the Touch ID system can be hacked easily.
