Any version of this phone that eventually materialises will not be more than 4.6", that is almost certain. There are already the 5" X & X Perf for that market; 4.8" would compete directly against those so they'll never do it.
I'd --love-- to see a 4.5" and reduce the phone width even more - like about 60mm max. With the S8 now giving a 5.8 in only 69mm, there has to be some advantage in dropping to the smaller screen. If it stays at 65mm with a 4.8", who's gonna want that when only a tiny bit wider you can get a full extra Inch of real estate...
gygy, 01 May 2017as I've mentioned in my post before I would like to offer another solution as regard body &... more4.85" sounds right to me, side bezels from xa1, top and bottom equal x compact top bezel in x compact body.
That would give a 77.4% ratio with space for stereo speakers.
A display tech without a backlight would reduce display thickness as well.
as I've mentioned in my post before I would like to offer another solution as regard body & display dimensions:
To my opinion, the Max. size for one hand cellphone and comfortable in the pocket (without feeling a "fourth leg") , is - 129X66X8.9 mm. As a result the Max. Flat Display!!!, with all the 8 points mentioned in my earlier post, would be 4.95 inches, which is not far from the Z5 Compact. This would give more room for a Bigger Battery [Non-removable Li-Po 3100 mAh]
The Sony Xperia XZ Compact would be the best cellphone ever if:
1. the same size as Z3 Compact - 127X65X8.9 - mm. BODY - IP68 certified - dust/water
proof over 1.5 meter and 30 minutes
2. Display size of 4.8 inches minimum!.
3. Resolution - 1080X1920 pixels pref. OLED
4. CPU - Snapdragon 835
5. Internal Memory - 64 GB, 4 GB RAM. and Card Slot - microSD, up to 256 GB (dedicated
6. Camera - f/1.8 or better f/1.7 with OIS
7. Loudspeaker (stereo speakers) - 32-bit. SOUND - (Voice - 76dB / Noise 73dB / Ring
8. USB - 3.1 0r 3, Type-C 1.0 reversible connector
9. Battery - Non-removable Li-Po 2900 mAh battery
10. Document Editor & Photo/video editor
This will be the ultimate compact cellphone ever!!!
i dont think they use snap 835 on this device, maybe 820 and 720p lcd for me is enough as it will extend battery life
Kyle Belmont, 26 Apr 2017It's more than a little frustrating that this page has been up for so long with the status set... moreI can say that we still have chance to see this phone really in production someday before Oct 1st.
After this date forget about it!
It's more than a little frustrating that this page has been up for so long with the status set only as a rumor when I can't find anything online to suggest that this phone is even in the works.
siddharth , 14 Apr 2017Please realease the phone ............................. is the model am wating from 3 yea... moreAfter asking 7284 times to the Sony stores, made Sony produce a compact phone with 2 sim cards.
hope that would be thinner and be built with a better manf. quality
Best android phone, Sony Xperia XZ compact
- Body ratio > 75%
- Resolution: 1080 x 1920 pixels min
- USB: Type C 3.1
- Bluetooth: 5.0
Small size with dual SIM and extra sd card slot.
This is a config I'm waiting for.
Seriosly 2800mah battery but 720p screen?
SD 835 is overkill for 720p
Please realease the phone .............................
is the model am wating from 3 year..
I like the Xperia devices and using the z3 compact. I expect the specs said to have at least 75 % of screen to body ratio with 4.8 or 5 inches screen. If the above said specifications, display size and configuration will be the xz compact phone, will be the best android phone ever.
I like the Xperia devices and using the z3 compact. I expect the specs said to be true. And screen to body ratio to have at least 75%, And the screen size to be 4.8 or 5 inches with thickness to have below 8 mm. If these things available in xz compact will be the best android phone.
