Sony Xperia X Compact specs revealed in benchmark: Snapdragon 820 CPU, 4GB RAM
Sony is definitely among the companies that will unveil new products at IFA 2016 early next month. Word is, there will be at least two new smartphones in the Xperia X family revealed in less than a week.
The highly-anticipated Xperia X Compact is one of the devices that is rumored to be announced by Sony very soon, the other one being the Xperia XR (or XZ).
Even Sony confirmed the existence of these two smartphones, although the Japanese company did not reveal too many details on their specs.
However, if you're a Sony fan, then today is your lucky day. New information about the Xperia X Compact has just popped up at Gfxbench, one of the benchmarks that stores results from unannounced devices among other things.
According to the list of specs, the alleged Xperia X Compact should be powered by a 2.1GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and 4GB of RAM. There will be 64GB of storage inside, but there's no mention of microSD card slot. Also, the Xperia X Compact will sport a 4.6-inch display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution.
The 16-megapixel rear camera can capture 4k video. It comes with flash, autofocus, face detection and probably many additional features. In the front, the Xperia X Compact includes an 8-megapixel camera for state-of-the-art selfies.
Sony Xperia X Compact runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, but we expect the Japanese company to provide an Android Nougat upgrade at a later date.
While the smartphone is expected to be officially unveiled in early September, it will probably take a few weeks for Sony to make it available on the market. Also, expect the Xperia X Compact to be priced quite high considering the company's long history in that regard.
