This could be that 5th Sony compact device that was rumored for WMC, just not announced.
I believe it could well be available in Spring too, along with Premium....
anonymous7, 06 Mar 2017no gorilla glass 5?It's just a rumor, so the specs are pretty much invented. Until thet actually release the phone, don't believe what the specs are. I just hope it will have a Snapdragon inside, not a lousy MediaTek..
Dream specs and waste of space if the render is close to the real device. Unfortunately price will be more than 600 Euro, which is absolutely far away of my upper budget barrier.
The only hope I have is for Xiaomi with such specs since there are rummors for an year about small dimension flagship, but recently I saw a poll on en.miui.com where people are voting for 6 inch devices.
If the frame are metal like z1c then this is the best Sony compact device ever made. Review ASAP GSMA. waiting for final release and review.
Trenton , 06 Mar 2017Looks like the Xz premium and Xzs has a badass brotherYup, so XZ premium is the big brother, XZs middle brother, and XZ compact little brother.
[deleted post]I am excited about this new compact. But I an wondering when sony with spice up their design. As far as bezels, they should reduce it enough for the screen size to bump to 4.8
But not too much because I don't want those stereo speakers to go away. And if they can fit the new camera, even better. I just hope the battery doesn't get drained fast regardless of the chipset, because I wanna be able to have fun with the camera and stuff and still have enough juice till I get home at the end of the day.
Shrink the bezels so that they're less than the X compact, give it an all metal waterproof body, these specs and some cool colors. I'd buy it.
I think the Sony can using 4.7 inch fhd.Because 4.6 inch hd is outdated.
Now this is what im talking about...i knew it xz compact
Will come out...:-D Lucky i didn't buy the x compact knowing the xz will someday appear...
I doubt the phone will have the snapdragon 835. If Sony has been doing away with the Sony Xperia x compact, the most they can do is the snapdragon 820 from the XZs
Maybe this xz compact will launch at ifa ,because ,x compact is still fresh,and maybe it will available after one year of x compact in a market,
Anonymous, 06 Mar 2017Sony mfgs BeaSt compacts in Market place!! yes sony rocks!!!
Too much bezel (top, bottom) and design is too bland.
What is the source of this rumor? I have not read anything about an XZ Compact being released soon.
(I have the X Compact at the moment)
narubi, 06 Mar 2017Yes, the screen would be sharper and brighter a bit, but with 1080p you would only get like 5h... moreI agree, 720p on an LCD at this size is fine and it will be cheaper.
AMOLEDs are noticeably less sharp at 720p though with the pentile arrangement.
Surprises me how my x compact is noticeably sharper than my old moto x but I can see the difference.
iphone has lower resolution compared to 1080p phones and they(iphones) are beast. so this phone can be real iphone killer imagine you get 60 fps+ on modern games (asphalt 6, modern combat 6 etc) and 2800 mah battery is great (only 4.6 inch screen and lower resolution) i can give an example for this galaxy s4 2600 mah 5.0" screen and it has great battery life
