A 720p powerhouse? Why is it that Sony has a bad rep for falling short, on high-end model phones? I don't care if the phone only has a 4.6" screen. A phone of that price should be 1080p, with QHD video.
Back then, I was so excited to get my Xperia Z Ultra, until I found out there was no flash for the rear camera.
piku, 07 Jul 2017Did i read 720p display
Poor sony you can't even afford a 1080p display for a 600$ device.4.6" .....
Heng, 07 Jul 2017720p in snapdragon 835 device...what a joke lolIt is smaller than Galaxy A3
If this is XZ1 Compact, resolution is not the problem. And the camera will probably be higher

Photo seems official.
Does not look a prototype,but finished product..
It will be 1080p screen. They using X-Reality Pro which the 1080p only triggered when using media files (photos & videos) and other systems using 720p. For a 4.6 screen, that was amazing. Just like XZ premium only open 4k for photos and videos, rest use 1080p. About the main camera, its not 8mp, that was just ideal mp for it (standard for all flagship sony phone, just like 5mp Pureview). The full megapixel still unknown and will be higher, i bet its the same 19mp like XZ premium.
i was expecting to see xperia compact with full hd resolution..
well, 720p on 4.6" still mesmerizing me though
Mike, 07 Jul 2017Haha, Nice Sony, No need to upgrade to high MGP just keep small megapixel like 8mgp or 9mgp or... moreHeat shouldn't be a problem:
Especially if they're using the grpahite heat plate from the xz premium.
Haha, Nice Sony, No need to upgrade to high MGP just keep small megapixel like 8mgp or 9mgp or 12mgp is enough and it is also has Good Looking photo. Just trying on your system for strong well done and be careful the Heat of the phone, no need it heat up as previous flagship. And the battery life take a very good one inside. I hope the design of the big phone and compact phone is the look, no need to put sensors so far way of the top speaker, keep as big one. Try your best Sony, Love Sony.
Snapdragon 835, Adreno 540 and 720p display?
Imagine the GPU onscreen benchmark scores.
Twatonk, 07 Jul 2017Its ok, Sony is over anyway. They ruined themselves with fhe worst after sales everHave you heard dual camera set up using Sony sensors?? You know what that means? It will become ONE of Sony resources TO GET MORE PROFITS through the years seeing that even midranger like honor 6x has dual cameras and you know what? Sony still has lots of business to stand tall to slap you for saying such thing, move on!!
People are just unanderstandable at times.
They complain on the XZ Premium having a 4K display, telling it'll kill the battery, but never complained when Saltsung used QHD on a 5.1" device. Yep, I'm describing the S7.
They complained for a 720p display on literally a 4.6" screen device, but loves to have a 1080p display on a 5.5" device, namely OP5.
Sony. The only manufacturer that gets hated for being practical and smart.
Twatonk, 07 Jul 2017Its ok, Sony is over anyway. They ruined themselves with fhe worst after sales everThe XZ was reported to be the most selling flagship device of Q4 2016 right after the Note 7 fiasco.
The same year, Sony was found to make the second most profits out of their high end flagships, Apple being the number one.
So, here's my middle finger right on your face. Take it, you deserve it my dear. :)
AlienNextDoor, 07 Jul 2017That's not how it works. Nice trolling, 6/10Then mind explaining how should it be?
His words may be wrong, but his points are right
Black Russian, 07 Jul 2017So many dumb people here treating this leak like a confirmed spec list. Why would a $700+ phon... moreIt'll be the compact, so 326ppi like the 4.7" iphones, sharp enough in normal (non vr) use and helps battery life.
As for the price, this is a rumor and like most xperias wait a little for a price drop and it'll be good value.
