In 2020 Apple came up with a smartphone that has long been requested. In an industry where the standard is already on screens above 6 “inches, the Cupertino company dared to launch a 5.4” inch device.
Android manufacturers would be expected to follow these steps, thus presenting alternatives. And at a time when Sony no longer has the expression of other times in this segment, it may even be the first to come up with an Android rival for the iPhone 12 mini.
New Sony Xperia Compact is on the way
The credible leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer (OnLeaks) advances exclusively that Sony will launch a new “Xperia Compact” on the market. According to the source, this model will have a 5.5 ”inch screen and measures 140 x 68.9 x 8.9mm.
It is important to note that it will not be as compact as the iPhone 12 mini, which is 5.4 ”inches and measures 131.5 x 64.2 x 7.4mm. This happens because it includes a pronounced “chin”.
On the front, the smartphone will have a front camera built into the notch drop-shaped 8MP. Two chambers will be behind, with the biometric sensor on the side and the 3.5mm jack on the top.
Although it was thought that there was an interest in smaller smartphones, the first data reveal that sales of the iPhone 12 mini disappoint. Between October and November, this model was responsible, according to Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, for only 6% of the total sales of the new iPhone 12.
It remains to be seen whether this return of Sony to small smartphones will have good market acceptance. If it comes with the right price and features, it might be something to consider for some users. We will be looking to know more about this future smartphone.
