Sony Xperia X1, XZ1 and XZ1 Compact specifications leaked; could launch at IFA 2017

Sony will be expanding its Xperia XZ range at IFA this year along with a new mid-ranged smartphone.


After announcing four smartphones at MWC 2017, Sony is all set to bring in a new range of Xperia smartphones at the upcoming IFA conference. The Japanese smartphone maker is expected to announce the Xperia X1, XZ1 and the XZ1 Compact as alleged specifications of the smartphones have emerged.

Expanding the Xperia XZ range, Sony will add the XZ1 flagship and the XZ1 compact smartphones. The regular version will feature a Snapdragon 835 chipset, a 5.2-inch full HD display, 4 GB RAM and a 3,00 0mAh battery. Keeping the 'mini' tradition alive, we could see the XZ1 Compact with similar hardware including the Snapdragon 835 SoC, 4 GB RAM but packed in a small package with a 4.6-inch HD display and a 2,800 mAh battery. This one will definitely be our favorite.

The third handset will be the Xperia X1 which will be a mid-ranged offering. The specifications include Snapdragon 660 chipset paired with 4 GB of RAM. It will sport a 5-inch Full HD display and a 2,800 mAh battery will provide the juice.

This sounds like a more aggressive lineup from Sony. While details around the camera has not been revealed, we are assuming that Sony will use the same 'Motion Eye' camera which debuted on the Xperia XZ Premium and the XZs.
