#Sony is prepping some big launches for the IFA 2016 event in Berlin. While we’ve known a bit about some of its high-end phones, a new leak is giving us a glimpse of the company’s new compact phone, known as the Xperia X Compact. This goes to show that the company still has faith in its small, but feature rich devices, even in the midst of flagship offerings.
Sony’s mobile business is barely breaking even, so it was expected that there would be some drastic steps taken to ensure that things are different. While it’s too early to tell if it will be the case, we’ve seen from leaks that the new crop of Xperia phones come with an all-new design language and a supposedly superior hardware as well.
But one question that remains to be answered is if the device will see a wider U.S. availability. For any high-end device to be successful, its sales figures in the U.S. (and China) will play a big role.
Do you think Sony has what it takes to shake up the market with the Xperia X Compact?
