Sony plans Xperia Z3 Compact smartphone

It turns out that every flagship smartphone is soon followed by a smaller, budget-oriented version of it with somewhat slower hardware. The latest smartphone to get a junior sibling is the Sony Xperia Z3, which will be soon joined by its smaller Xperia Z3 Compact version.

The new smartphone is expected to appear in September of this year at the upcoming IFA in Berlin, Germany. The device will come with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chip with Krait 400 cores and integrated Adreno 330 graphics. The rest of the specs include a 4.5-inch sensor display at 720p resolution (720 x 1280 pixels), 2 GB of RAM, a microSD card slot, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, a rear 20.7 MP camera and a front 2.1 MP camera. The smartphone will support LTE and will run Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

Quite expectedly there’s no information on the pricing of the upcoming smartphone.
