Recently, Sony revealed another line up of Xperia smartphones at IFA. The latest announced phones are called- the Xperia XZ and the Xperia X Compact. The two are revealed with some never seen features. Moving back to last May, Sony launched its last phone- the Xperia X. Just like the Xperia X, the two upcoming models are designed in Xperia’s same classy rectangular shape.
Where the Xperia X is available for purchase with a 5.0 inch display, the Xperia X Compact will feature only 4.6 inch display, but the big guy, the Xperia XZ has a 5.2 inch display. The Xperia X series reveals metal back panel, whereas Z series shows up with a glass back case.
The Xperia XZ will feature a full HD screen of 1920×1080 pixel resolution with IPS liquid crystal display technology, which is similar to that of the Xperia X. The Xperia X Compact is crafted with 720×1280 pixel resolution multitouch screen, up to 10 fingers. The Xperia X Compact will be equipped with scratch resistant glass guard whereas XZ will be equipped with Corning Gorilla Glass.
The inside work of the Xperia X Compact is quite satisfying. It has android OS version 6.0.1 i.e, android Marshmallow which is upgradable to android Nougat. The chipset column features Qualcomm MSM8956 with Snapdragon 650. The Xperia X Compact will be available with hexa-core 1.8 GHz Cortex CPU and an adreno 510 as GPU. Operating System inside XZ is also android Marshmallow which is less than expected. The chipset here is Qualcomm MSM8996 with Snapdragon 820. 2.25 GHz quad-core processor will run inside the XZ with adreno 530 as GPU.
When it’s about Xperia, camera is always a feature to talk about. Both the phones will be available with 23 MP, phase detecting, laser autofocus and LED flash. Selfie camera in XZ is 13 MP with sensor while in Compact it is of 5MP only. Both the sets will feature non-removable Li-Ion battery. 2900 mAh batteries will be available in the XZ while 2700 mAh batteries in Compact.
The Xperia XZ will release in four colors- Mineral Black, Platinum, Forest blue and Deep pink. White, Universe black and Mist blue will enhance the charm of the Xperia X Compact.
By now, no price related news has been released by Sony. The Xperia X Compact will be available for sale in this month only. The Xperia XZ is set to release in October this year.
