Not everyone wants a full-size phone with a great big display and cinematic screen. Some of us want something more compact and easier to hold, so the proposed Sony Xperia XZ4 Compact is music to our ears...or hands! The Xperia XZ4 Compact, rumoured to be released at around the same time as the full-size version, is said to have a 5-inch display. This will make it considerably easier to hold onto, and that is one of the biggest selling points in this compact phone. Overall dimensions will come in at 139.9 x 66.5 x 9.3mm in size, if early rumours are to be believed, while the display will be a standard 16:9 aspect ratio based on the first images.
Mark 1 and Mark 2 of Sony’s compact Xperias didn't have all of the features of the standard models, but were good performers none the less. The XZ4 compact should be no exception. While we can expect only one rear camera, it should contain some of Sony's top-end photographic technology while it is hoped that the processor power in the full size XZ4 will also be found in the compact version.
Other early reports about the Xperia XZ4 Compact suggest the retention of the 3.5mm headphone jack, with USB Type-C for charging purposes, and house dual front speakers in the bezels delivering the same sort of high-quality audio Sony is renowned for. In summary, the compact XZ4 will give us a more-than-comfortable user experience, with great hand feel and portability, and plenty of Sony's technological know-how thrown in for good measure.
