Alleged Sony Xperia XZ and X Compact press renders leak out

Alleged Sony Xperia XZ and X Compact press renders leak out
Tomorrow, September 1, Sony will host an IFA 2016 press event where it's going to announce various new devices. Two of the new products that the company will unveil tomorrow could be smartphones: the Xperia XZ (previously known as Xperia XR) and Xperia X Compact.

While we've already seen leaked renders allegedly showing the Xperia XZ and Xperia X Compact, today we can take a look at brand new images that present the two handsets from various angles - check them out below. According to XperiaBlog, these are "press photos", thus we assume that Sony itself will use them to promote the phones.

It appears that the Xperia XZ and Xperia X Compact have somewhat similar designs. However, the former is larger, thanks to a 5.2-inch display, while the latter is expected to sport a rather small 4.6-inch screen (of course, plenty of users will probably love this compact screen). Rumors have it that the Xperia XR and Xperia X Compact will both be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processors, featuring 23 MP rear cameras, 13 MP front-facing cameras, and USB Type-C ports. Not long ago, a Sony website inadvertently confirmed the names of the two upcoming devices.

The Sony Xperia XZ and Xperia X Compact could be released on September 24, though it's not clear exactly where they should hit the market first. There's no word on the prices of the two handsets, but we expect the X Compact to be cheaper than the XZ. 

So, who's excited about what Sony seemingly has to show us tomorrow?
