It’s been a while since we heard any rumor from Sony’s camp. We have one now. It is said that Sony’s Compact series of flagship will return with the debut of Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact.
Sony has been the only maker in the market which made perfect mini sized flagships with the same engines at their heart. The last phone in the Compact series was Xperia Z5 Compact. That was in 2015. The upcoming Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact will share some of its specsheet with the current XZ Premium. So you can expect Snapdragon 835 processor and 4GB RAM. Like its predecessor, the Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact is expected with a smaller 4.6-inch screen albeit with FullHD (1080p) screen. There will be a similar 19MP camera as well.
As per the rumor, Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact is expected to debut at IFA, Berlin which is happening on August 31st. It is expected to be available for purchase from September 10. There are a couple of more phones expected too alongside XZ1 Compact. We will find out soon.
