Sony Xperia X Compact now on sale for $499.99
Sony Xperia X Compact squeezes strong specs into a smaller bundle
Right on cue, the Sony Xperia X Compact is now available to purchase for a cent shy of $500 in either black, white or blue color configurations. The device belongs to the broad category of sub-flagship handsets, and is aimed primarily towards those who do not require a lot of display real estate.
The Sony Xperia X Compact is equipped with a 4.6-inch 720 x 1280 IPS LCD, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 650 SoC and 3 GB RAM. The 23-megapixel main camera includes phase detection / laser autofocus along with 5-axis stabilization. The the front-facing wide-angle snapper, meanwhile, touts a 5-megapixel resolution.
The device gets 32 GB of expandable storage, and prospective owners will probably want to snag a microSD card since only 20 gigs of that is usable. Keeping the Xperia X Compact's lights on is a 2700 mAh battery which, as we found in our review, gives the device excellent longevity. Software-wise, the device ships with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but as we discovered yesterday, Sony plans to have Nougat ready for the X Compact by the end of November.
If you've had your eye on Sony's miniature device since its announcement earlier this month, you can go ahead and place your order at the source link. If you're in the market for something Sony-branded but less dinky and more powerful, you may wish to wait for the incoming Sony XZ.
