Sony’s latest flagship, the Xperia XZ2, wasn’t the only handset the company revealed today at MWC 2018 — the electronics giant also lifted the veil on its Xperia XZ1 Compact successor, aptly named the Xperia XZ2 Compact.
Boasting big features on a small polycarbonate and metal-reinforced frame, the XZ2 Compact includes an HDR-ready 5-inch Full HD+ extended display (the exact aspect ratio is currently unknown) and will run Android 8.0 Oreo right of the box.
The phone also has the distinction of being the smallest handset to pack the latest Snapdragon 845 processor into such a wee frame. Other specs include 4GB of RAM, a microSD slot (onboard storage size has yet to be revealed), a USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer and a 2,870mAh battery (up from the 2,700mAh unit found in its predecessor).
The decision to reinforce the phone with metal does mean that the XZ2 Compact lacks the bigger Xperia XZ2’s wireless charging functionality, though we’re happy to report that it’s still received IP68 certification for water and dust resistance.
Notice we haven’t say anything about a headphone jack? Sorry cord fans — like the Xperia XZ2, the XZ2 Compact has also dropped its 3.5mm plug this year.
