3D Memorys, 20 Feb 2018The Z3 compact and Z5 compact are very beautiful. The XZ2 compact is a rumor.They are not. Soulless bricks. But this one looks like cheap chinese device. And it's way too fat. Volume buttons on a right side is a pretty bad idea.
Z3 Compact my favorite design, I hope new one looks like it... Glass front&back panel, silicone corners.. no need any ugly plastic cover ...
TheGoldenMellifluous, 20 Feb 2018Well, patents of either power button or side fingerprint sensor in US are the one to be blame ... moreYeah, it sucks. I like the positioning of it over the bezel fingerprint reader anyways. Not like Apple's implementing a side fingerprint reader anytime... :\

It doesn't look "Sony" though. Actually looks quite generic, hope it's a fake.
Really disappointed with the new design, not classy at all for which xperia is known for😞
Jeez. Design choices of Sony this year sucks. Feels like pre-Xperia Z era.
Except for the volume control it's hard to see how the Z5C design could be improved. The XZ1 lacks the lanyard hole and the corners are awkward. This too looks several steps backward.
Ewww no. Just no. I was so hyped for Sony at MWC and we get this... Please be fake.
Faizal Firdaus, 20 Feb 2018I don't think it's real or even prototype, because If no side fingerprint sensor, the power bu... moreL1 and L2 have this kind of power button.
All phones will have rear FPS.
A insider told me this is not the new Compact.
AnonD-735540, 20 Feb 2018the curve back design is ugly according to my eyes. Same here. I HATE round soapy phones. I love Sony for it's monolithic design. That's why I've upgraded to XZP form the original Z.
Let's hope they don't take the same approach for their high-end flagship phones.
That bloated back makes it look like the battery is swollen and about to say hello to Nuclear 7 :))
I am glad to see that they trimmed down the bezels though. Let's see what will the haters say now!
I don't think it's real or even prototype, because If no side fingerprint sensor, the power button should be round which is the signature design of the Xperia. I don't think Sony will ditch a signature style for a design change.
AnonD-418798, 20 Feb 2018It is bezelless.. Zoom in and you will find out the bezel is quite slim.. Also, the one who le... moreThe side bezels are there and equally in size, the bottom seems even a bit bigger while the upper one is smaller. But next week we'll see.
What disturb me is that brands usually ditch things like the jack in their flagships first and follow the same trend of style in their products. If they are just doing it in this model imagine the rest... I hope that this one is more an experiment than anything else because it looks ugly or strange but not nice and I hope that the fingerprint sensor on the back will be only for USA and not for the rest of the world leaving the comfortable sensor on the side.
AnonD-481725, 20 Feb 2018I wish it is not true or it is a midrange/low end budget compact smartphone, because it doesn'... moreThis is probably a low-end one, it just couldn't be if it is a high-end one. That back curve just reminds me of my still alive XPERIA SP, but with a slightly bumped out curve which can look as thick as my XPERIA SP or even thicker...
Idk but the xz1c definitely looks more premium than this one ,even the z5c looks better cmon sony
This is the reason Sony, HTC are failing. You have to follow modern trend. You can't stick with old. And the reason for emergence of Chinese brands. In next few years HTC and Sony will be dead or bought by Chinese brands. Look at Motorola Blackberry, Alcatel and Vertu. They are all Chinese now.
