Sony plans to continue production of the Xperia Compact series. Now, according to the news, Sony may disappoint the Xperia Compact fans with its product.
The Japanese company Sony Xperia Compact series smartphones have always been popular because of their small shape, beautiful appearance and powerful hardware specifications. The last phone of this generation to be introduced in 2018 was the Xperia XZ2 Compact, which uses the Snapdragon 845 chip.
According to rumors, it seems that Sony has changed its strategy for these products and is going to use a less powerful chip. Previous news has suggested the use of the Snapdragon 775G in Sony’s upcoming Xperia Compact, but now it looks like we’re seeing a different chip.
According to the Japanese blog Android next , this affordable Sony smartphone will use the Snapdragon 690 chip, which also supports 5G. A 5.5-inch display with support for 21: 9 aspect ratio is provided for this device.
According to reports, this device will be slightly larger than the Xperia XZ2 Compact and iPhone 12 mini. We will also probably see a chin of considerable size. Dual camera on the back (13-megapixel main camera), shutter, fingerprint sensor on the side and 3.5 mm headphone jack are other possible features of this device.
Earlier rumors had it that the Xperia 1 III would be called Sony, but now it is said that Sony has given it a different name. Instead, the device will likely be unveiled as the successor to the Xperia Ace.
It is said that this phone will be specific to the Japanese market. Also, given that the previous generation of this device was $ 450, this generation of compact will probably be more expensive. We are expected to see the release of this smartphone in the first half of this year.
It is true that the very limited supply and average specifications of Sony’s next small phone will disappoint Sony fans, but it seems that there is not much luck in this market segment, as Apple has also decided to reduce production of the iPhone 12 Mini by 70%.
