Sony has already announced its Mobile World Congress press conference on 26th February. While the company has not revealed what it plans to introduce, we expect the company to launch its flagship devices as well as a few mid-range devices.
While the Japan-based company usually launches new Xperia Compact series phone in the second half of the year, reports suggest that the company could launch the Xperia XZ2 Compact at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week.
This could turn out to be true given that new prototype images of the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact have just surfaced online. The newly leaked image of Xperia XZ2 Compact next to the Xperia Z5 Compact shows curved bottom.
The leaked image is said to be a picture of a prototype, and may not be a representation of the final version. However, it is confirmed that there is no 3.5mm headphone jack, and that the fingerprint sensor is located on the rear of the device — similar to what the company did with the Xperia XA2 series.
The design of the phone is said to be in line with the previous leaks surrounding the upcoming phones from Sony. It is believed that the final version of the phone will have a slightly smaller bezel on the top of the screen.
Sony is also expected to launch Xperia XZ Pro and Xperia XZ2 at the Mobile World Congress, which are rumoured to feature 18:9 aspect ratio display. So, there is a possibility that the Xperia XZ2 Compact will carry the same aspect ratio and not the traditional aspect ratio of 16:9.
The phone will likely house a 5-inch or smaller display, and is speculated to be powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 845 chipset along with 4GB RAM. Reports suggests that the phone could pack a single rear camera of 19-megapixel and a front-facing shooter of 8-megapixel. It is likely to arrive with an internal storage of 64GB and feature a 3,000mAh battery.
However, nothing has been confirmed by the company and it appears that we’ll have to wait till the company’s press conference on 26th February to know if the Xperia XZ2 Compact gets launched and what else the company introduces.
