Jumbo, 07 Mar 2017Honestly I think the only reason this "rumour mill" entry is here is because a few/some/a lot ... moreThat's the way it is with high end small phones even when they end up on gfxbench and stuff. Seem to be tested by oems then rever released nowadays.
Honestly I think the only reason this "rumour mill" entry is here is because a few/some/a lot of people have been saying they would like to see one like this.. which is why there's no actual rumour article on the front page. It's not a leak, it's just a hopes-&-dreams. Mine included...
I would love this idea to be real.
But I'm suspicious. If it's really in the works.. a) why not announce it at MWC..? Unless it's scheduled for IFA; b) why [Sony] claim (as seen here) that an XZ Compact is unlikely...? And if they changed their mind, why not announce it straight away? Because if people believe (because you told them) that they won't make an XZ Compact, they're more likely to buy an iPhone, or a G6, or S8, instead of waiting. If you're Sony, you would surely be scrapping and fighting for every last customer.
Unless, and this [seemingly crazy] theory seems to get just that much more plausible each time we hear something from Sony, there actually is someone in a powerful role at Sony who is actively, but subtly, trying to take them down/rot them from the inside out. Ridiculous, and yet.. fits the evidence.
Looks f...ing great. Sony please release asap with fulll metal body, water proof, SD835 and that new 19 MP camera. Go Sony. Kill Iphone...
The corners should be rounder, the frames should be thinner, the screen should be 1080p, fm radio, the dual sim, usb 3.1 type-c, infrared remote control must be. These are my expectations.
Twatonk, 07 Mar 2017sony only put quantity, not quality. Don't they dare to up the battery 4100 mAh, no one sony p... moreThis is rumored for 2800mah for 4.6".
The s8 has 3000 for a 5.8".
Xzp has 3230 for a 5.5
sony only put quantity, not quality. Don't they dare to up the battery 4100 mAh, no one sony phone has more than 3500 mAh battery which is standard for android phone nowadays
The price of the phone will be sky high if the specs are true if not price will always be high...its sony when its new its high price but it will cut the price after few months... comon people are you new in this world?...what phone are you using 3210 or 5110? Jezz people...
GO GO GO Sony!!!
just please add radio too. The chip will be there. So just activate in and place some radio app
If Sony launched this phone, they are really weird. Because if they announce this phone, it is weird to see Xperia X Compact the only Sony compact phone to have a mid range chip instead of having the same chip as the bigger version
Ugh, sure. Sony seems to be the only ones actually willing to put good hardware into a small phone and run Android on it. So sure, I can overlook that it'll be the fourth time I buy a phone that looks exactly the same. I just hope they don't sacrifice the IP68 again, X Compact was inferior to Z5 Compact because of that.

This could be that 5th Sony compact device that was rumored for WMC, just not announced.
I believe it could well be available in Spring too, along with Premium....
anonymous7, 06 Mar 2017no gorilla glass 5?It's just a rumor, so the specs are pretty much invented. Until thet actually release the phone, don't believe what the specs are. I just hope it will have a Snapdragon inside, not a lousy MediaTek..
Dream specs and waste of space if the render is close to the real device. Unfortunately price will be more than 600 Euro, which is absolutely far away of my upper budget barrier.
The only hope I have is for Xiaomi with such specs since there are rummors for an year about small dimension flagship, but recently I saw a poll on en.miui.com where people are voting for 6 inch devices.
If the frame are metal like z1c then this is the best Sony compact device ever made. Review ASAP GSMA. waiting for final release and review.
