Xperia Z3 Compact

Sony's upcoming Xperia Z3 Compact has leaked several times already, giving us a look at the design and specs of the device. Today's set of leaked images give us a closer look at the camera sensor at the back and various ports present on the device.

It looks like the Xperia Z3 Compact will retain the 1/2.3-inch 20.7MP Exmor RS sensor that first made its debut on the Xperia Z1. Images of the sides of the device reveal that the location of the ports are relatively unchanged, with the microSD card slot housing the microUSB charging port, both of which are covered, just like the previous models.

There is a magnetic connector on the left side of the device and an open 3.5mm audio jack at the top. From the images, we can see that the button layout is also unchanged from earlier models, which includes a circular power button in the middle with volume rockers and a dedicated camera shutter key on either side. The leak also reveals a few Xperia Z3 images, which highlight a similar design as its smaller variant.

Sony is set to unveil the Xperia Z3 and the Xperia Z3 Compact at the IFA next month. While we've seen many leaks of the device until now, there is still not a single image that offers a clear look at the front of the device, which is rumored to house a 4.6-inch 720p screen. We'll be live at Sony's event at the IFA, so make sure you stay tuned to Android Central for further coverage.

What do you guys make of the latest set of leaked images?

It doesn't matter. The pixel density will still be over 300. And it will be a reasonable sized phone in a market that's lost its way.

4.6"? So much for "Compact". I hope Sony hasn't increased the phone size... Though I think "hope" is the word here.

Also curious regarding the internal storage... And if they keep the 16GB, if it'll come worth their recent firmware update that corrected Google's moronic decision of removing the saving of apps to the SD card.

DJCBS - Google doesn't make moronic decisions. Forgot or couldn't comprehend or in denial as to the reasons why, eh?

Jerry wrote a great article, for the literate, about the reasons for Google's decision.

Yes, they do. A lot of them.
And yes, I read Jerry's article. It's still a moronic decision...if only to hide a lazy one behind it. The truth of the matter is - and you'd know this if you lived outside your bubble - that you can safely allow apps to be saved in a SD card without having them accessing everything else. Google, instead of going the route that would allow them to do what Microsoft did (yes, surprise surprise, Microsoft did this on WP) - allow apps to be saved on the SD card safely - decided to just cut the feature. Perhaps you should spend a bit more time cultivating yourself? ;)

That route Google took, in my book, is a moronic decision. I would just like that your blind love for Google wouldn't thwart your vision...which it did. So yes, I'm glad Sony went ahead and fixed what Google stupidly broke. When Google screws up, it's good that OEMs step in to reverse their mess.

Get over it. No phone on the market is heavy today.. If anything, I hope it's heavier lol..

Super light devices just feel cheap.

I still think this is a different model.. if anything it's uglier (but far from ugly) than the Z2..

And if the leaked specs are anywhere near correct, it's a total waste of an upgrade.. Like out of the 2 I'd honestly prefer the Z2.

I have a love hate relationship with Sony. I love their design but I hate that they never get it to us in the US in a timely manner. I vowed not to come into these articles but I just can't stay away! LOL

You know, the problem is more worth the American carriers. If they wanted the phones, Sony would cover them to them. The problem is that the US market is only based on carriers unlike the rest of the World were carriers have an irrelevant roller in the sale of the phones, with these being sold on normal tech stores along with PCs and tablets, something that doesn't exist in the US.
