Sony doesn’t seem to be able to catch a break, and has been unable to stem the leak of confidential data. Now alleged details of the company’s forthcoming flagship device Xperia Z4 has leaked in an email sent by Sony Pictures’ CEO Michael Lynton as part of a product-placement proposal for the next James Bond movie SpectreGizmodo reports.

The email mentions the fact that Sony Mobile has provided the company “with the needed visuals of the new Z4 Phones.” It further reveals the possible unveiling date of the Xperia Z4, “these phones are the planned phones for MAY/NOVEMBER of 2015.” The email further mentions the product placement plans as well as the fee for showing the smartphone in the movie scenes.

The email also contains alleged photos of the Xperia Z4’s design. While it looks similar to the Xperia Z3, there are quite a few tweaks that seem to make the device more aesthetic.

From what we have heard so far, the Xperia Z4 is likely to feature a 5.5-inch QHD display, and could be powered by a 64-bit Snapdragon 805 paired with 4GB of RAM as well. Additionally, the forthcoming flagship device is also likely to feature a 20.7-megapixel rear camera, 4.8-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 3,420mAh battery among others. On the software front, not surprisingly it will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.

The leaked email also mentions a new wearable device, something that looks like a bulkier Samsung Gear Fit. It could very well be the next-generation Sony SmartBand.

The leaked email is as follows:

Sony Electronics is now combing the production request list and will shortly tell us what they can provide. Sony MOBILE has now provided us with the needed visuals of the new Z4 Phones. These phones are the planned phones for MAY/NOVEMBER of 2015. I’m attaching the visual for you to see.

Barbara has it and will be meeting with SAM/DANIEL shortly to discuss and to come back with their design for the phone. Mobile is fine and is waiting to hear from us.

Barbara wants to get a PLACEMENT FEE for putting the phone in. She understands that Sony is willing to commit to a marketing/advertising campaign of 18MM, but she wants an additional placement fee. In the past, Sony Electronics/Mobile has not paid a fee…but has paid the following:

• $18MM Above-the-Line Advertising commitment

• $ 5MM Production Budget/Cost including TV, Print, Digital, etc.

• $ 5MM Daniel Craig FEE

• $ 1MM License Fee to EON for a limited edition Bone phone (which by the way…

Sony Mobile never recouped, but paid)

Today…Sony Electronics has so far budgeted the following:

• $18MM ATL Advertising commitment

• $ 5MM Daniel Craig FEE

• $ 5MM Production Budget

What if we take the Daniel Craig fee and convince Sony just to pay Barbara directly 4MM for a placement fee. NO Daniel this time. We walk from him. The remaining 1MM (or LESS!) of this budget can be used to hire “Q” instead? Her fee would have to include the right for Sony to use the 007 marks including the barrel, but no Daniel.
