Xperia Z3 Compact inferiorCome IFA 2014, we expect that Sony will have a bunch of mobile devices they are planning on showing us. One will probably be the company’s second flagship phone for 2014 – the Sony Xperia Z3, and the other is expected to be a smaller version of the handset in the form of the Xperia Z3 Compact.

Thanks to leaked photos obtained by Ausdroid, we now know what the handset is expected to look like. As you can see in the image above, the Xperia Z3 Compact will arrive in a variety of different colors, which based on the photo looks like white, orange, green, and black. The handsets also appear to be slightly different from Sony’s design language of the Xperia Z2 and appears to sport slightly more rounder edges.

Xperia Z3 Compact coloresWe have to admit that the phones look pretty good and if you’re after something affordable and don’t necessarily need to have the best specs, we reckon the Xperia Z3 Compact should do the trick. The phone has yet to be officially announced but based on what we know so far, the handset is expected to feature a 4.5-inch 720p HD display.

It will also be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz with 2GB of RAM, a 20.7MP rear-facing camera, a 2.1MP front-facing camera, and will run on Android 4.4.2 KitKat. It definitely does not sound like a pushover, although its smaller display and lower resolution could help keep prices down.

Either way do check back with us during IFA 2014 later this week for the official details, but in the meantime are you guys liking what you are seeing at the moment?
