New Sony Xperia Compact is on its way, first renders leak

A percentage of the Android community has been requesting a small-sized flagship phone for a while now.

Smartphone companies have slowly moved away from compact flagships, with only Apple managing to deliver a small yet powerful handset in 2020 - the iPhone 12 mini.

Sony used to be associated with compact high-end smartphones, but since 2018 the Japanese brand has ignored the segment in favor of larger products.

The renders and specifications were posted by known tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer on Voice.

He also revealed some renders of the upcoming smartphone that gives a detailed view of the design. It will be a budget smartphone with a waterdrop notch and a dual rear-camera island. What are your thoughts about Sony Xperia Compact? Its dimensions are rumored to be 153 x 72 x 11.1mm, which don't look as compact as the iPhone 12 mini (131.5 x 64.2 x 7.4mm).


The 2021 Xperia Compact doesn't have its fingerprint scanner under the display but on its side where it doubles as the power button. There's also a volume rocker and a dedicated camera button on the right edge.

The vertical dual-camera setup, which resembles the current Xperia lineup, is said to include a 13MP primary camera.

Sony has put two cameras on the back of the phone and they are arranged vertically in an elongated pill-shaped housing along with the LED flash.

According to info from OnLeaks, Sony is about to deliver a compact smartphone and it may well be a member of the premium Compact line. This leaves us with so many unknowns such as the processor, battery capacity, and screen resolution.
