Sony is expected to unveil three smartphones at this year's IFA Berlin. The Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact is one of them. With just a few days away from the launch, official renders of the smartphone have surfaced online.
Reliable tipster Roland Quandt has posted the images on his Twitter account. This is the same person who leaked the Sony Xperia XZ1 images a couple of days ago. Well, as you can see, the Xperia XZ1 Compact and Xperia XZ1 look quite similar in terms of design. However, the former has a thicker body. The handset seems to have a polycarbonate body with a matte finish.
If you remember, the Xperia XA1 Ultra also had a same kind of design. So we would not be surprised if the Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact comes with a NFC chip at the center of its rear panel. Up front, the smartphone is shown to be featuring thick top and bottom bezel. The side bezels are thin though.
While the images show the phone in Pink color. The tipster says the Xperia XZ1 Compact will be launched in three more color variants; Black, Silver and Blue. He has even revealed the pricing of the smartphone. It is said to carry a price tag of 499 GBP (approximately Rs. 41,000).
Well, talking about specifications, the Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact is said to arrive with a rather small 4.6-inch display with the resolution density of 720p. Under its hood, the smartphone is likely to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor clubbed with 4GB of RAM.
It is speculated, the device will run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS right out of the box and will be backed by a 2,600mAH battery.
