For mobile fans there’s a fine line when it comes to sizes. Many people prefer a smaller, less obtrusive device and Sony has been on the cutting edge with their Xperia Compact handsets. Sony is apparently sticking with the Compacts when they launch the new Xperia XZ4 next year and now we can check it out thanks to some 360-degree CAD renders.
As usual these CAD renders have been mocked up by Steve Hemmerstoffer through his @onleaks account and shared through (they paid him) CompareRaja. The Xperia XZ4 Compact will be significantly smaller than the Xperia XZ4 which we saw renders of last week, with the Compact expected to sport a 5″ display and measure in at 139.9 x 66.5 x 9.3 mm. For comparison here’s the sizing:
|Xperia XZ4 Compact||Xperia XZ4|
|139.9 x 66.5 x 9.3 mm, with a 5″ Display||166.9 x 72.4 x 8.2mm, with a 6.5″ Display|
There’s always been differences between specs on the full size Xperia handset and the Compact, and with the XZ4 it’s no different with the XZ4 Compact looking to use a single rear camera (the XZ4 seems to have a triple rear camera). The XZ4 Compact will also use a side-mounted fingerprint scanner built-in to the power button like the full-sized XZ4, and also include dual front speakers and a USB-C port. Sony will also continue to supply a 3.5mm headphone jack as well.
There’s loads more pictures on CompareRaja if you’re wanting to check it out. We’re expecting to see the Xperia XZ4 Compact announced alongside the Xperia XZ4 at Mobile World Congress in February next year. Until then, you can check out the renders in this video:
