xperia z3 compact

Very blurry images of what is allegedly the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact Android smartphone have made their way to the Internet, a few weeks after photos of the larger Xperia Z3 were posted as well.

The leaks, which come from a Chinese Weibo account, show a smartphone that is supposed to have a 4.6-inch 1080p display with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset inside. The source claims that the Xperia Z3 Compact has 3GB RAM and a 20.7 megapixel Exmor RS rear facing camera along with stereo speakers.

Sony has yet to officially announce anything about the larger 5.15-inch Xperia Z3, much less a smaller Compact version of the smartphone. It's possible that the company will reveal the Z3 at the IFA trade show in Berlin in early September. However, until that actually happens, any news or images of either device should be taken with a big grain of salt.

What do you think about the prospect of a smaller version of the Xperia Z3?
