Android167, 13 May 2015It's called "Compact" for a reason. If you want 5.2' phone, go buy Z3 or Z4 when it comesThe Z3 Compact was almost as powerful as the Z4 (albeit with a little less RAM). It's the only compact phone that I'm aware of with specs comparable to it's larger sibling. The Z3C didn't need quite as much power as the Z3 as it had a lower resolution screen so the performance differences are apparently pretty small (in fact I believe the Z3 compact outperformed the Z3 in some cases), I expect that to be the same for the Z4 and Z4 compact.
Look at the number of people who obviously didn't read the article. It's for JAPAN ONLY.
luvmysp, 13 May 2015make a 5.2 screen size version and I will buy it ..You know the meaning of "compact" right?
Adiyel, 13 May 2015and it'll have less battery life than the Krait containing SD800 series phones. This first bat... more'801 or higher' Krait is 820. But when is krait coming out? Next year? If u have z1 compact or z3 compact, u can wait, but for the rest of us looking to buy a compact phone right, one with a 808 would be awesome.
Blue Gum, 13 May 2015Z3C uses 805, so this is a downgrade, therefore not the Z4C.I afraid you are way off there. Z3 compact has 801.
"A former Xperia A2 SO-04F was launched for the world as Xperia Z3 Compact, so it's not entirely out of the question."
Wrong fact. Xperia A2 is the refreshed version of Z1 compact or Z1f SO-02F for NTT docomo. SO-02G is the exact copy of Xperia Z3 Compact.

The 5.2" version is the Xperia Z4. The compact series is around 4.6-4.7". If only they were in America...
inSyt, 13 May 2015801? I want this phone but with an 808 or higher.and it'll have less battery life than the Krait containing SD800 series phones. This first batch of stock ARM 64-bit SoC are garbage. Stop asking for them!
zamroni, 13 May 2015Z3 Compact looks better than this A4. I doubt it will be Z4 Compact.I have a Z3 compact. It looks more like a mid ranger not like a high-end phone. I hope that the Z4 compact will look better.

I can now assume that z4 compact global version will announce later after z4 global version will announce in may or it might will announce with z4 global version altogether among lg g4 mini as a competitor in junior version of flagship.
