Xperia XZ1 Compact official pics leaked

in Rumours, Xperia XZ series

A couple of days ago we saw the first official press pictures of Sony’s upcoming Xperia XZ1 flagship, and today we are following that up with leaked press pics of the Xperia XZ1 Compact. We had only seen CAD-based renders of the Xperia XZ1 Compact previously, apart from a blurry live photo. So this is your best look at the device so far. The image below shows the pink version of the Xperia XZ1 Compact, but it is also expected to land in black, silver and blue colours.

You shouldn’t be surprised to see a design that doesn’t depart from the OmniBalance design language used in many of Sony’s phones, including the upcoming Xperia XZ1. Immediate points of note include that the NFC chip is not included in the rear camera sensor array, like the Xperia XZ1. Also, unlike the Xperia XZ1, there are no visible antenna lines on the XZ1 Compact, which probably points to a plastic build, versus the unibody metal build in the XZ1. We also like the use of a metallic/glossy edge along the top and bottom of the phone.

The Xperia XZ1 Compact will be true compact flagship unlike last year’s Xperia X Compact, and for that we are excited. There are hardly any manufacturers catering for the sub 5-inch premium segment, so we’re glad that Sony continues to serve this market. We’ll bring you more details as we have them. In the meantime, let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
