Last month Sony unveiled the Sony Xperia Z4 handset which oddly enough was limited to the Japanese market. Now according to a report from Russian website MobilTelefon (via TheDroidGuy), word on the street has it that Sony could be getting ready to announce the smaller version of the handset in the form of the Sony Xperia Z4 Compact.
Does this come as a surprise? Given that Sony has over the years displayed a habit of launching smaller versions of their flagship handsets, this is not a surprising move for the company. According to MobilTelefon, the device was spotted as part of NTT DOCOMO’s summer lineup but how accurate their information is remains to be seen.
However the handset is expected to be announced on the 13th of May, so we guess we won’t have to wait much longer to find out. In terms of hardware specs, the device is rumored to sport similar specs as the Xperia Z4. This means that can expect a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 under the hood and a 20.7MP rear-facing camera.
In terms of screen size this still remains unknown, but obviously it will be smaller than the Xperia Z4 features a 5.2-inch Full HD display, so the Compact version should be smaller but whether or not Sony maintains the resolution is anyone’s guess. That being said do check back with us on the 13th of May where hopefully more details will be revealed.
