If no fm radio then no compact sony. Same reason i dislike oneplus and iphone. I also prefer microusb than type C
Vincent Jang, 31 May 2017I love the radio too!I have the Z1 Compact and I have --never-- used the radio. ;)
would be very glad if sony mobile only divide their product to 3 categories (low, mid, and high), with each category have big version and compact version.
When is Sony bringing out the XPERIA XZ Compact? If they can only consider about making this phone, why not at least make an IP68-certified version of the smallish XA1?
I have waiting a long time for a high-end android smartphone with a 4.0" or at least with no 5.0" screen display, with a powerful soc and great specs. Sony never disappointing their fans.
I hope that :)
I hope RAM capacity is 6 GB not 4 GB.
As well as the battery wish to be 3000 mAh.
Why was the radio canceled?
Looks like more sites are reporting on this rumored xz1 compact (and xz1 )
Never heard of the site referenced with anonymous tipster, so I am chalking it up to fanboi fantasy for now. 720p and SD835? I'll believe it when I see it. Even Adreno 530 is way overkill for 720p.
I am not expecting anything more than a 660 if it still has with a 720p screen. Given that XA1 has negligibly wider body with a 5" screen, XZ Compact better be really tiny (
It seems this phone is real. It may be announced at IFA.
Name would be XZ1 Compact.
XZ1 and XZ1 Compact in September 2017. Both Qualcomm 835, 4gb ram , Imx400 Motion Eye.
XZ1 Premium at MWC 2018. Stronger CPU, 4K HDR Oled
It seems that these phone fits on my life style, a small with an octacore cpu and a 4GB RAM wow... Hope it well not heat faster.
Surficial, 03 May 2017S8 is as wide as a 5.2" 16:9 including the curved edges, so flat 4.8" won't be much smaller. ... moreA couple of my colleagues now have the S8 and honestly the height of that thing bothers me as much as the wide phones do. XZ Compact would be the phone the Z5c shoulda been, and it just kills me that there's no concrete indicator that it will even ever exist. If I end up buying something else (potentially G6) and then they end up releasing this at IFA I am ---not--- gonna be happy... :/

4.5" 60mm sounds good, but wouldn't count on anything that size being remotely high end (damn market trends).
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]
