Sony Xperia X Compact leaked specs include 4.6-inch display, 2,700 mAh battery

We've been given the chance to see what the Xperia X Compact will look like before its official reveal, since a couple of renders of Sony's upcoming smartphone leaked not long ago.

However, the pictures did not come with specs in tow, so we couldn't tell what the Xperia X Compact will have to offer in terms of hardware.

With less than a week until the official announcement, the Xperia X Compact partial list of specs has been exposed. Along with Xperia X Compact, specs for another Android smartphone that will be announced next week, Xperia XZ, have been revealed as well.

But first things first. The highly-anticipated Xperia X Compact is said to pack a powerful quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, but there's no mention of the amount of RAM. Since the smartphone belongs to the Compact series it will come with a smaller than usual display.

The report claims the Xperia X Compact should sport a 4.6-inch display, but there's no info on resolution yet. However, we do know the smartphone will be powered by a 2,700 mAh battery. Last but not least, the unannounced device will feature USB Type-C port.

Next in line, the Xperia XZ is rumored to include a similar quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor under the hood, coupled with 4GB of RAM

A 23-megapixel camera assisted by two LED flashes and a laser autofocus assures that users will take high-quality pictures. Moreover, you'll be able to take great selfies too, thanks to the 13-megapixel front-facing camera.

Sony Xperia ZX comes with a larger 5.2-inch curved 2.5D glass display and should include an USB Type C port too. No word on battery though.

Both the Xperia X Compact and Xperia XZ will be officially unveiled at IFA 2016 on September 1, so stay tuned for more on these handsets.

Don't get your hopes up because Sony is very good at disappointing their fans.

I think people get lead by spec sheets and quick reviews. I have a Sony Xperia Z5 Priemium and I recently bought a Nexus 5X and despite what people may think in these websites, the Sony is clearly the better handset. The Nexus is fantastic for its price but hardware quality, battery life and (surprise, surprise) software fluency of the Sony is on a completely different level. It just feels a lot more qualitative.

The phones themselves are good, the only problem with them is the price. Ex-Xperia Z2 owner here.

Thats to be expected for 5X vs Z5 Priemium Considering the Z5 Priemium is roughly double in terms of price

Partially true but even the price gap doesn't explain why a Sony phone with its separate skin on top of Android is actually smoother than a Nexus phone with its pure Android. Particularly if you consider that the difference between a throttled SD810 and a SD808 should not be so big, according to reports again.

I have a feeling I will be disappointed with price (again).

TBH, The Xperia Compact series almost never fails to disappoint. Definitely the most consistent phone of the bunch.

Sony will probably price it at something ridiculous so it won't sell as usual.

Yeah, I would have wait for this but it seems like it's either the pricing and/or delay time. If this phone will be available next year in the states, eh.

3000 mah would have been better choice.

But then the Phone would be fat Like my Z5 compact

This should have better battery life than Z5 compact as long as they stick to 720 display.

I just bought the Xperia X Performance (switched from my GS6) and so far I could not be happier. At first the design quality felt a lIttle cheaper than I expected and I was a little disappointed but after using it for a few hours I got used to the feel and man now every time I look at this beauty, it looks beautiful! In my opinion, the best style in design available on a smartphone today. Not only that, but I so much prefer the Marshmallow version from Sony over Samsung's Touch Wiz one. It's pretty, simple, and most importantly a lot more stable and smooth that what I got on Samsung. In camera, the front camera kicks ass, absolutely love it!!! As for the rear camera though, sometimes I really love it and other times I expect more, indoor shoots are nothing special (but at least true to life looking), and low light shoot are also on average area but not bad either. Outdoor shoot with a decent amount of light though is where the 23-Megapixel camera really shines thought, there it delivers outstanding shoots!! All in all, I'm really happy with this phone, especially the battery, my GS6 battery was just as bad as my old iPhone (or worse) and I could never last a full day with it but with the Sony smartphone it last a day without a hitch and its stamina mode software is so much better than the regular "low power mode" that I was using on Samsung. Here, I don't even feel the need to use "ultra stamina mode" whereas on my GS6 I was obliged to use it at some point just to keep the phone alive and hated it!! I charge my Sony only on the morning now and I bet if I where to use a little of the ultra stamina mode on the end of the day I would easily get a day and a half with it. Not to mention that this is the first phone supporting Qnovo's New Tech which prolonges the battery life Span by 2x as much, ensuring that it will survive for much longer. Conclusion: not really sure why this phone was only reviewed as "great" only but I think it deserves way better than that. Maybe reviewers are just pissed that the US model has no fingerprint (buy it from Canada instead!!) and maybe their pissed at Sony for leaving behind the Z-series and staring a new chapter instead. In any case, sure Sony has some things to improve on, mainly it's camera software for starting it up faster and giving more options & also it's new boot up animation but then again so does Samsung (especially Samung), mainly it's rather unstable Touch Wiz, it's occasional lag and it's crash rate all need to be improved!! Last note: being an old iPhone user (before using my GS6) I can say that an iPhone user would feel at home with an Xperia. Not because of the feautures but because of it's nice, simple UI and because of the stability of the software and also because the camera produces shoots true to life (in colors) just like the iPhone and it also uses a beautiful display that keeps all the colors nicely calibrated just like the iPhone, i like it more than the iPhone and the Samsung's one though.

That would be shocking considering that the last Compact launched at 500.
