Sony may announce an Xperia Z5 Compact Premium in Japan


According to a report published a few days ago, Sony is gearing up to launch a higher-spec’d, more impressive variant of the Xperia Z5 Compact in Japan. Chinese website CNBeta claims that the handset will be called the Xperia Z5 Compact Premium and will be available to purchase next month.

As for the specifications, the handset is rumored to sport a 4.6-inch Full HD display, a Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 chipset, 4GB of RAM, a 23-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5.1-megapixel selfie shooter and a 2,900mAh battery — which is quite an improvement on the standard Z5 Compact.

CNBeta also imparted a promotional image of the device, pictured above, which shows the handset featuring some rather unique, special edition Hatsune Niku branding on the backplate indicating that its set to be exclusive to Japanese carrier DoCoMo.

Sadly, no information was given with regards to pricing, a launch date or whether the device will remain in Japan or expand to other markets, but it’s still nice to see that it’s on its way and judging by the intensity of this leak, it should be arriving pretty soon.

However, as with all leaks and rumors, we have to take these alleged specifications with a rather large pinch of salt until Sony provides us with some evidence as to what it has in store for its upcoming Compact smartphone, but hopefully we won’t have to wait too much longer to find out.
