For months we've been hearing rumours about the impending launch of the Sony Xperia Z4 Compact smartphone, and this week the details are finally starting to take shape.
The smaller version of the Xperia Z4 - likely to be called the Z4 Compact - will reportedly be unveiled on May 13, according to a report from Russian website MobilTelefon.
Over the past month or so rumours have continued to emerge suggesting Sony has two new devices in the works. One being the successor to the Xperia Z3, and the other is reportedly the sequel to the Xperia Z3 Compact.
A few days back, Sony quietly launched the Xperia Z4 in its native market. But the company did not unravel the Xperia Z4 Compact.
Now, if reports are to be believed, Sony is indeed preparing to launch the compact version of the Xperia Z4 in Japan. As per the leaked report, the Xperia Z4 Compact, which was spotted as part of NTT DOCOMO's summer line-up, will have a model number of SO-04G.
At this point it's extremely hard to say what to expect from Sony. This is the first leak of the Xperia Z4 Compact, a device which could mimic its predecessor in terms of design and form factor.
As a reminder, the latest rumours suggest the Xperia Z4 Compact will have a 4.5-inch Full HD display, Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of internal memory, microSD card support, an improved 20MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing shooter, and finally a bigger battery.
