Over the past few weeks Sony's upcoming Xperia XZ4 has started leaking - we've seen it in CAD-based renders, and a couple of days ago a purported spec list was outed too. Now it's time for the phone's smaller sibling to take the stage.
So, without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, feast your eyes upon the Sony Xperia XZ4 Compact. What you see here are CAD-based renders, which have proven accurate in the past. There's also a video showcasing all the angles of the phone, embedded below.
The phone keeps the blocky looks of Sony's previous Compact flagships, and its screen's top and bottom bezels seem to be almost as big as the XZ2 Compact's, so it's a pretty retro look that the XZ4 Compact dons here.
The new device still has a single rear camera, and also one snapper up front for selfies. Dual front-facing speakers are in, and there's a 3.5mm jack on the top side. The XZ4 Compact will have a 5-inch display and its dimensions are 139.9 x 66.5 x 9.3 mm. That means it's taller and wider than its predecessor, but thinner - and that's probably because it lacks a bulge on the back.
Speaking of things that are missing - a visible fingerprint sensor on the rear. It looks like Sony is once again using side-mounted scanners after its experimentation with badly placed ones on the backs of its phones.

Not all phones have dedicated SD Card slots anymore, but remain happy enough to still have it as an option rather than being taken away completely Now I must ask myself, who's going to use 2 SIMs nowadays? One carrier is already good enough
