We posted earlier today that Sony are teasing us with the new Xperia that is set to be announced on the 4th September.
One small but important thing that seems to be appearing on the new device is a waterproof headphone jack.
If we are interpreting the image correctly there is a 3.5mm headphone jack on the top edge of the phone and it appears there is no cover over it like the current Xperia Z.
The S4 Active from Samsung has had a waterproof headphone jack and the cover over the port on the existing Z has been a frustration for many users including Charlie in our office at Clove who uses the Z.
It is understandable why Sony had previously had a cover over the socket, but it would seem now that a waterproof coating has been applied to the jack to allow it to be exposed. We will find out more and know for sure on the 4th.
