Sony used to have a line of devices that were true mini flagships. The Compact line was a version of the flagship with a smaller, lower-resolution screen, but Sony mostly kept to high-end specs despite the size. This is where every other mini "flagship" fails: they use mid-range or even low-end specs.
Thankfully, the series might be making a comeback. Sony's Czech site popped up the names of the Xperia X Compact and the Xperia XZ, though no info was given. And as another bonus, a render of the Xperia X Compact has been leaked.
There were no details given about either phone, but seeing the return of the Compact series is definitely great. Not everyone wants a huge phone, so having small high-end phones is pretty important. However, we'll have to wait to find out more about these devices. Is anyone looking forward to the next Compact device from Sony?
