Sony has somehow become a specialist in the mini smartphone segment with its Compact series of smartphones. The company has now launched yet another device which fits into the segment quite well, known as the Xperia J1 Compact. The device is pretty identical to the Xperia Z1 Compact which was launched early last year, so much so that it seems like a rehashed version of the smartphone.
The device also comes with a metal frame on board, which adds to the overall appeal. This is a step up from the plastic build used in most Sony flagships. The device packs a 4.3 inch 720p display, a 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 SoC, a 20.7-megapixel camera on the back, a 2-megapixel front camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, Android 4.4 KitKat and a 2,300 mAh battery.
The smartphone will most likely remain limited to Japan as the hardware is near identical to the Xperia Z1 Compact, which has been available in global markets for quite some time now. Given that Sony is struggling to make a lasting impact on the mobile industry, it makes sense for the company to focus on its homeland first.
