Japan’s refresh of the Xperia Z1 Compact will be called the Xperia A2 (SO-04F “Altair”) judging by these leaked pictures, presumably from a NTT DoCoMo brochure. On the face of it we can see very few design changes, apart from new colours (Gray Black, White, Lavender and Orange). The latter should appease Xperia SX fans.
All we can tell from the leaked document is that it also runs a 4.3-inch display. If there are any Japanese readers who would like to reveal any other interesting information, please let us know in the comments below. The other leak was that of the Xperia Z2 (SO-03F), which is due to land on DoCoMo during the Summer. Interestingly, this model does not include an IR blaster, which is normally the staple for most Japanese Xperia phones.
