It's been just a little over two months since the Sony launched the Xperia Z2 at MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2014, Barcelona. Now the company is reportedly set to debut the compact model of the flagship phone.
Japanese technology blog, ATRPG has gotten hold of the alleged brochure of the network carrier, NTT Docomo containing the yet-to-be released Xperia A2 (code-named SO-04F aka Altair), which is believed to be the mini version of Xperia Z2.
In the document, the new Xperia mini marquee phone is shown to feature 128×65×9.6mm dimensions having 4.3-inch HD (720x1280p) display, whereas under the hood, it packs 2.3GHz Snapdragon processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt storage and is said to come in four color variants - Orange, Lavender, Grey Black and White.
Going by the report, the new phone has no upgrades over its predecessor. Many expected Xperia Z2 Compact to feature high-end specifications like 3GB RAM, faster Snapdragon 801 series CPU as seen in its elder flagship model Xperia Z2.
Predecessor, Xperia Z1 Compact had identical internal specifications housed in Xperia Z1 sans the screen size making it the true mini flagship phone in the market compared to rivals like Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and HTC One Mini which boasted sub-par specifications.
As there is no proof to authenticate the ATRPG report, it's too soon to assume leaked document to turn out be true. We just have to wait until the company makes the Xperia Z2 Compact public.
Word on the street is that Xperia Z2 Compact is slated to get launched in June.
