Sony blocking benchmark apps on its prototype phones?

Sony is trying to do its best to stop leaks of its upcoming devices; we’ve been aware of this since last year when basically almost everything about the Xperia Z1 got leaked. Similarly, we are starting to see more and more Xperia Z2 (Z1 follow-up) leaks surface, but Sony has come up with a neat way to at least try to protect the information, contents, and internals of its prototype devices.

As you can see in the screenshot above, the installation of a benchmark application, namely AnTuTu, is being blocked with a nasty message on this particular device. Now, if the picture is accurate and no Photoshop hocus-pocus is involved, it might shed some light on Sony’s efforts to keep things under wraps, or, in this particular case, applications off of prototype phones. This way, details about hardware and software on pre-production units, are less likely to get leaked.

Do you think more manufacturers should adopt such an approach or are you feeding on early leaks to build up the anticipation for upcoming devices?
