Sony Xperia Z3 Compact specs leak: Snapdragon 801 CPU, 20.7MP rear camera, Android 4.4.2

The other day, we showed you some pictures that reportedly revealed the Sony Xperia Z3 and Sony Xperia Z3 Compact. With Sony popping out new flagship phones twice a year, the manufacturer started a new trend of "Compact" versions of these handsets beginning with the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact. Unlike the "mini" variants of flagship smartphones, where the specs are taken down a notch or two, "Compact" models of Sony's Xperia phones use the exact same Snapdragon chips, rear-facing camera, and Android build found on the full-sized flagship handset.

XDA developer DoomLoRD has sent out a tweet containing what he says are the specs of the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact. The handset is rumored to offer a 4.5 inch screen, with resolution of 720 x 1280. A quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 CPU is expected to be under the hood, along with the Adreno 330 GPU. 2GB of RAM is believed to be inside, and a 20.7MP snapper should adorn the rear of the phone. The front-facing camera will weigh in at 2.1MP.

The source of the leaked specs is also sharing a screenshot taken of the "About" screen for the Xperia Z3 Compact. The picture shows the Android build on the handset, as well as information about the processor on board the device. With Sony's decision to launch a new flagship phone every 6 months, we should see the Sony Xperia Z3 and Sony Xperia Z3 Compact hit the market around August.
