Report: Sony Xperia Z5 Compact Premium with 1080p screen is coming to NTT DoCoMo

Report: Sony Xperia Z5 Compact Premium with 1080p screen is coming to NTT DoCoMo
While Sony has already introduced three variants of the Xperia Z5, a new report claims that there will be one more handset added to the Xperia Z5 team. Joining the Sony Xperia Z5, Sony Xperia Z5 Compact and Sony Xperia Z5 Premium will be the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact Premium. According to this fresh dispatch, the latter will bring some improvements to the screen resolution, battery and the amount of RAM in the phone.

According to the report, the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact Premium will be equipped with a 4.6-inch screen carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution. That improves on the 720p resolution display found on the non-Premium Compact model. The battery is receiving a slight bump from 2700mAh to 2900mAh, and the Xperia Z5 Compact Premium will be the only model in the Xperia Z5 line to come with 4GB of RAM inside.

The report also mentions that the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact Premium will be offered only to customers of Japan's NTT DoCoMo. Reportedly, this model will be available soon. If this report is true, there could be some backlash from customers planning to buy the Xperia Z5 Compact.

We recommend taking this report with the proverbial grain of salt until Sony makes this device official.

Thanks for the tip!

not like they're the first company to make a special model for japan, which is SONY's biggest market anyway. just get a normal z5, not a big difference in size.

If it comes with Hatsune Miku on it I don't care if it will come in europe at all

If it's true, will there be a Japanese version of the 5,5" Z5 Premium with 4GB RAM? 64GB storage maybe?

Doesn't matter too much to me seeing as it will probably be more expensive and based on reviews, I might just order it from Japan. Still, what I am waiting for is the Dual Sim variant of the compact to surface and will likely by whatever form that manifests in.

IF it is real - instead of complaining let's see if we can get a few hundred thousand Customers in USA/ England willing to pay an extra $ 100 to $150 for the Compact Premium ESPECIALLY with a rugged metal Frame.

I am. I wanted z5c with more ram and fullhd, 600 euro doesn't justify the z5c.

Import it from Germany. Here it costs 549€. Check Sony's German homepage. And if you wait for 8 weeks after release you'll get it for 450€.

Hmmm.... I couldn't care about the 1080p screen. At 4.6" a 720p screen needs less power and has faster fps for games and media. The 4GB ram is the only reason to actually go 64-bits otherwise you might as we'll stick to KitKat. And the better battery is always welcome. Considering their asking price I'd rather have Z3c with 720p, 4gb ram & 2900mAh battery.

Z1C is even better and has a metal frame. S800 is still a beast and it's 150 € used (in mint condition)

Well Samsung, LG, Motorola, Huawei, HTC all have exclusive versions for their country that are beefed up versions of their devices.

I am not pissed because if I were to buy a Z5, it would be the standard 1080p one with the 5.2 inch screen anyways. But yes, this is what the Z5 compact should be in reality instead of the crap 720p. Regardless of what the in denial sheep say, 750p and 720p is not enough for the Iphone 6s and Z5 compact. 1080p is totally ideal for that size. I mean even the ancient HTC One M7 had a 1080p screen and HTC sucks. The companies that do not suck really should have at least 1080p regardless of the screen size.

I'm not pissed, Sony just helped me with that to not buy their product.

Probably exclusive to Japan, because this is likely a collaboration between Sony and Crypton. It will be more expensive than the standard Z5C as well (just look at their previous Hatsune Miku collab), so the improved specs are somewhat justified. If you want it badly, import it from JP. but I doubt it will work properly overseas.

Why didn't they just give it a full HD screen anyways? Why!?

i guess it is fake. they wont equip the compact version with 4gb ram if the 4k premium version only carries 3gb.

Except if the Z5 Premium has a Japanese version with 4GB ram :P

Spec says bulls**t/fake. Theme says real-deal. So 50:50 chance it's real.

I really hope than when Sony execs are huddled together trying to figure out why their mobile division is failing so spectacularly despite, somebody nearby just points at stupid decisions like this one...

Same with htc, nokia/microsoft excecs. The company is wasted by their stupid execs.

Great, another painful grain of salt on my eye. Seriously, it's just a rumor and even if it will be true, Japan will have it exclusively so don't put all hopes in one bucket.

3 gigs of ram and a 1080 screen...... This should have been the global variant!

I have said it before and I will say it again. Sony is run by dumb motherfathers just like htc who dont know what the fudge they are doing. No wonder they are losing 1 million a day on xperia division.

Miku (?) print aside, Z5C Premium seems perfect for me. I hope Sony will launch Z5C Premium in regular colors. Let's make that happen, speak out to sony people
