Sony provides separate magnetic charging docks for the Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra, so it’s no surprise that Sony will launch the Magnetic Charging Dock DK32 for the Xperia Z1 Compact shortly after the handset launches in February.
Apart from size, the dock is no different to the DK30/DK31 docks for the Z Ultra and Z1 respectively. It has a magnetic connector, which steers the phone’s charging connector to the dock to enable charging. The dock includes interchangeable adapters so that it can be used both with and without a cover.
We would expect that the magnetic connector to be the same size as found on the Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra. Therefore, if you were one of those that already own a DK30 or DK31 dock and have stripped the magnetic cable from it, you should be able to use this directly with the Xperia Z1 Compact.
Expect pricing of the DK32 dock to be similar to the DK30/DK31 docks i.e. around the £25/€30 mark when it launches in late February.
