The Z2 compact isn't even out yet and they're already working on a Z3 compact! The one thing missing from all Sony phones are proper hardware buttons for manu, home and back. The bezels are thick enough so let's ditch the stupid on-screen soft keys and do it proper.
Samsung has the right idea here, despite everyone moving to soft keys, they have sensibly stuck with proper hardware buttons.
Based on calculations from the photo , the aspect ratio for lengt/wide = 2.056 (subtracting the backcase it seems to have) . Z1 compact has 127mm/65mm = 1,954.
1) its more than twice LONGER than its wide. Thats ugly, i guarantee you.
2) even worse if its 4,6 inch it will be at least 65 mm wide (thin bezels) , multiplied by espect ratio of 2.056 its 134 mm long. That sucks. This phone will be as wide as the z1 compact BUT IT WILL BE 7 mm LONGER! really stupid
3) so its almost as long as an galaxy S4 wich is 136 mm.
4) WHO WANTS A 'COMPACT PHONE' THAT HAS PRACTICALLY THE SAME LENGTH AS A SAMSUNG GALAXY S4??
Wow!!!! This is it!!! The real iphone 6 competitor!
September is coming, cant wait. Nice job Sony!
It will be better if Sony only reduces the bezel width while keeping the screen at 4.3" HD. 342 ppi is higher than Apple's Retina and it's more than enough.
I am happy with the screen of my Z1 Compact.
Good work Sony. Thin horizontal bezels and close to 4.7 inch screen is awesome. I'd buy this.
