This is the Sony Xperia X Compact

Sony is seemingly preparing the launch of a brand new Android smartphone that should be named Xperia X Compact

Obviously part of the company's Xperia X series of handsets (which currently includes the Xperia X, Xperia X Performance, Xperia XA, and Xperia XA Ultra), the Xperia X Compact may be released in the coming months alongside the Xperia XR - another unannounced Sony device that could make its official debut at IFA 2016 in early September.

Right now, there are absolutely no details on the features of the Xperia X Compact, but we can see the front of the phone - on the left - thanks to an image revealed by Evan Blass (@evleaks) on Twitter. 

Apparently, the X Compact resembles the Xperia XR more than any current Xperia X phone. Given its name, the new handset probably sports a screen measuring under 5 inches, thus being targeted at users who appreciate smaller phones.

Assuming it's going to be released soon, the Xperia X Compact will become Sony's fourth Compact handset, after the Z1 Compact, Z3 Compact, and Z5 Compact. Both the Z3 Compact and Z5 Compact have 4.6-inch 720p screens, great battery life, and powerful processors. The Xperia X Compact will likely have a lot in common with these phones, offering top-notch features in a small package. Would you be interested in such a device, now when almost everyone seems to prefer large screens?
