Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact image renders, 360-degree video published


Such small display on smartphones is now a rarity as most of the phones come with more than 5-inch. The Xperia XZ Premium's camera can record 4K videos at 30fps and 720p videos at an wonderful 960fps, even though, the ultra slow-mo burst mode only lasts about 0.182 seconds. The render shows a headphone jack at the top and USB type C port at the bottom. Moreover, devices revealed from the leak followed the standard software support by Sony Mobile on models released within two years, which usually receive at least one major OS upgrade before reaching the end of life cycle. The Sony Xperia XZ Premium sports a 5.46-inch Triluminos IPS display with an added glass of Corning's Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The smartphone is further powered by a Hi-Silicon Kirin. For storage, we have a fast UFS 64GB native storage with room for expansion via sd-card. On the rear near the camera, we have a long elongated horizontal bar.

The video reveals a SIM tray placed on the left panel of the device, a front camera placed in the upper bezel alongside the flash and audio grills. The device houses a 3,230mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 technology.

While it objectively feels a little early for Sony to launch yet another "full-sized" flagship Android phone with chunky bezels, the company's latest diminutive hero device is about to turn a year old, thus completely justifying a beefed-up sequel. The Xperia is expected to be 7.4mm in thickness.

It was a small gesture in the moment, but it could have significant impact on the ongoing anthem debate. It's a tough week for America. "Malcolm is a leader and I'm here to show support as a white athlete".

And The Winner Is ... The device has 5.3-inch HD IPS display. The 960fps videos are also pretty fun to play around with, although, with a time restriction of just 0.18 seconds, there's not a lot you can actually do with the feature if we're being completely honest.

And if you've had any doubts that two devices sharing the same moniker will look dramatically different - well, this just isn't Sony's style at all. Which is why it manages to edge out the Huawei P10 in our head-to-head today even though it comes with a price-tag that pits it directly against three of the best-selling smartphones in the world over the past twelve months - Samsung's Galaxy S8, Google's Pixel XL and Apple's iPhone 7 Plus.
