Sony Xperia Z3 Compact specs promise a mini flagship

Tags: Sony, Android, Rumors

If an increasing number of leaks is any indication, the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is growing closer to reality. Four new images plus a spec overview promise that the Sony's Compact line will remain the mini king in the new generation, too.

The Xperia Z3 Compact is said to have a 4.6" 1080p screen and just look at those bezels. It seems that with the Z3 generation Sony will finally shed the thick bezels and make its flagships more compact. Also of interest on the front are the stereo speakers.

On the inside the upcoming mini king is as impressive as the Xperia Z1 Compact was when it came out (it still is, in fact). The new model will upgrade the processing facilities to a Snapdragon 801 chipset and 3GB RAM.

The Sony Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact are expected to be announced by September, perhaps at IFA.

Some have asked why 64 bit is needed. The same reason you have it on desktops, so you can have more than 4gb of ram. My Z1c has 2gb. This Z3c will have 3gb. I can imagine the Z5c will have a whopping 8gb. That would be awesome! As I use my phone for ...
