Sony To Launch New Xperia Compact With 5.5-Inch 20:9 Display & Snapdragon 665

After a long period of staying silent, Sony is tipped to revive its Xperia Compact, though it will carry mid-range hardware specs only.

Sony is experiencing prolonged sluggishness and struggling to find a foothold in the smartphone market. However, that could not stop the company from launching many new devices. According to a new report, the Japanese manufacturer will launch a new Xperia Compact phone in the near future, with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 665 processor and a 5.5-inch screen, which is smaller than most of the smartphones launched in 2019.

Xperia 5 was introduced in September and this is considered a smartphone with many points of reference to the Compact series. This device has the same hardware configuration as the Xperia 1 with an impressive camera system but has a much smaller design.

According to the latest rumors, Sony is likely to convert Xperia Compact into a mid-range product line. Instead of coming with powerful hardware like flagship models, the upcoming Compact phone will use the mid-range Snapdragon 665 processor. In addition, it will still have a 20:9 screen with a body size of 60 x 138 mm, narrower and significantly shorter than the Xperia 5.

A few months ago, Sony had to stop selling smartphones in a number of countries. According to the latest sales figures, the Japanese manufacturer could not even sell 1 million units in a quarter, with Q1 sales of 900,000 devices and Q2 of 600,000 units.

Many experts predict that Sony's 2019 smartphone sales will fall to about 2.5 million units, many times lower than what the company achieved in 2018 (6.5 million devices) and 2017 (13.5 million devices).
