Xperia Z3 Compact leak confirms Snapdragon 801 processor

Rumored to debut this fall at Berlin's IFA show, the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact leak now confirms that the miniature flagship phone will sport a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor from Qualcomm. Other specs include a 4.5-inch 720p HD display, 20.7-megapixel camera, and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing selfie cam.

Specs of the device were revealed on Twitter by @Doomlord_XDA along with a screenshot of the phone's settings.

At this time, the naming of the device may be in the air as we're seeing it being referred to as both the Xperia Z3 Compact and the Xperia Z3 Mini. We'll have to wait for an official announcement from Sony to know for sure how the company will name this phone.

The device will also have 2 GB of RAM and the Snapdragon SoC will also have an Adreno 330 graphics processor.

Allegedly, the model number for this phone is the Sony D580x.

Additionally, a leaked screenshot of the "About phone" screen reveals that the device will run Android 4.4.2 with a 3.4.0 kernel.

Not much else is known about the phone. This leak follows the most recent leak where the front glass panels were revealed.

Thanks, Anurag, for the news tip.

Xperia Z3 Compact leak confirms Snapdragon 801 processor


At full price? No chance. Sony's Compact line isn't a cheap version of their flagship. Also, they still you premium phones... For premium prices.

It sounds like a little beast. I would take that. Would have been nice to have a 1080p but still sounds good.

I hope at 4.5" that it's still the same size of the Z1 Compact. Because otherwise there's nothing Compact about it.
Also...please please please please, for the live of God, Sony, put 32GB of internal storage in it with a micro SD. You do that and I'll buy it as soon as it's out.

I am sold! I'm getting this for the Mrs! Perfect size and camera for her to be snapping shots of my children and enough horse power to negate all lags and smooth ui!

Still holding out for any 1080p compact devices. As long as it's 4.8" or less, and it has the premium internals and camera, it's my next purchase. I'm not one for radical hardware innovation, I just need a peppy, durable, small phone to run stock KK or CM11.

You really don't need 1080p on any screen under 4.8 inches, just my thoughts

The Z1 Compact may have a 720p screen, but it's smaller size meant that the screen is still extremely sharp. Still sharper than the iPhone, apparently.

He said he needed a camera, the M7 fails on that point. On all the others, including what they are more than likely priced at now, fits the bill though

For a broad range of picture taking situations, the HTC One (M7) actually has one of the most highly rated camera capabilities that also includes mechanical Optical Image Stabilization for both stills and videos.

Moreover, the highly acclaimed and innovative Zoes and 'automatically constructed' Video Highlights that can be edited add an intriguing, captivating, and shareable events within your gallery.

Dumbo, I am tired of proving you wrong. Go ahead and pick, choose and not answer questions put before you.

Again, you are wrong

It sure would be nice to walk in to an AT&T or T-Mobile store and try one of these phones out. Those specs, especially given the size of the screen, are exactly what I want.

The Sony Z1 compact hit all the right buttons. It's the right size for those of us who don't carry a purse and fits a pocket perfectly. Keep the size, up the speed and specs and Sony you will be back in profit soon. Looking forward to getting another well made Z3 compact stylish phone, can't wait.

If this comes to T-Mobile I'll be happy. I don't want to deal with importing and things like that.

Another mini phone. This time, it's done the way it's supposed to be.

A smaller version of a flagship, without a huge spec gimp.

Many thumbs up to Sony. All they need now is to make their devices natively available on all US carriers and step up on advertising and I think they can give Sammy a run for their money.

Tempted to move to a Z3 Mini from my Nexus 5 since my phone doesn't have the right LTE bands. Wish the screen was full HD though.

Looking like this would be a good alternative to the huge phone trend. I'll definitely check this out. Mini done right. *Side eye at Samsung*

I like the sound of this phone. I hope it will be available in Canada. Currently using an S3 & I am not impressed with the big phone trend. 2GB of RAM, nice! I would make this my next phone.

As user of the current Z1 compact, I would be disappointed if the device launched with a bigger screen. This is a phone for people who made a decision to go with a smaller screen, it doesn't need to creep up in size with every new generation like the mainstream devices do. If this continues, we'll end up with a 5" phone in a few years.
