[deleted post]I am excited about this new compact. But I an wondering when sony with spice up their design. As far as bezels, they should reduce it enough for the screen size to bump to 4.8
But not too much because I don't want those stereo speakers to go away. And if they can fit the new camera, even better. I just hope the battery doesn't get drained fast regardless of the chipset, because I wanna be able to have fun with the camera and stuff and still have enough juice till I get home at the end of the day.
Shrink the bezels so that they're less than the X compact, give it an all metal waterproof body, these specs and some cool colors. I'd buy it.
I think the Sony can using 4.7 inch fhd.Because 4.6 inch hd is outdated.
Now this is what im talking about...i knew it xz compact
Will come out...:-D Lucky i didn't buy the x compact knowing the xz will someday appear...
I doubt the phone will have the snapdragon 835. If Sony has been doing away with the Sony Xperia x compact, the most they can do is the snapdragon 820 from the XZs
Maybe this xz compact will launch at ifa ,because ,x compact is still fresh,and maybe it will available after one year of x compact in a market,

Too much bezel (top, bottom) and design is too bland.
What is the source of this rumor? I have not read anything about an XZ Compact being released soon.
(I have the X Compact at the moment)
narubi, 06 Mar 2017Yes, the screen would be sharper and brighter a bit, but with 1080p you would only get like 5h... moreI agree, 720p on an LCD at this size is fine and it will be cheaper.
AMOLEDs are noticeably less sharp at 720p though with the pentile arrangement.
Surprises me how my x compact is noticeably sharper than my old moto x but I can see the difference.
iphone has lower resolution compared to 1080p phones and they(iphones) are beast. so this phone can be real iphone killer imagine you get 60 fps+ on modern games (asphalt 6, modern combat 6 etc) and 2800 mah battery is great (only 4.6 inch screen and lower resolution) i can give an example for this galaxy s4 2600 mah 5.0" screen and it has great battery life
narubi, 06 Mar 2017Yes, the screen would be sharper and brighter a bit, but with 1080p you would only get like 5h... moreIf this was using SD821 I wld agree with u. But if the rumor is true and it has a SD 835 then 1080p wld have made more sense considering the efficiency gained from the 10nm process.
1080p on SD 835 shld not be taxing at all for gaming considering how pretty much every flagship this year will come with a 2K screen.
Also don't forget that Z5 compact, it's true predecessor had a smaller battery with a much worse of processor in terms of efficiency but still managed good battery life.
Imagine a 720p screen with SD835.
Such thing is like the most powerful car. Ariel Atom V8 500 which its weight to power ratio is 1.
Athull, 06 Mar 2017Should be 4.8" with slimmer bezels and a 1080p resolution considering the processor.Yes, the screen would be sharper and brighter a bit, but with 1080p you would only get like 5h SoT, with 720p you will get 7h+. Not to mention this would be a gaming beast. I think the lower resolution is worth the battery life and better performance.
Athull, 06 Mar 2017Should be 4.8" with slimmer bezels and a 1080p resolution considering the processor.The screen width covers the flat portion of the glass, so a 4.8" would need to be slightly curved to fit in the same size.
But if sony wants to make that device I'll test it for them.
