Why every popup flash doesn't utilize this method as Sony?

I Was a Canon APS-C user who went on Fuji. Recently I got to shoot with a Sony a6000 camera without external flash for a friendly indoor function.

I found that a600 flash has a trick in it's sleeve. You can bounce it! Although the power is not great it's make the pop up flash very useful with increased ISO. I would never use popup flash directly as it was on my fuji or previous Canon entry level cameras.

When i checked their latest APS-C cameras. It seem they have incorporated this amazing thing in them as well.

I think this Sony's amazing trick should be incorporated in every other popup flash.

A6000 was released in 2014 now 7 years passed. I'm shocked why no other cameras adopted this amazing feat?

May be this design might be not robust yet it's actually make popup flash useful by making it robust.
