As if the new Xperia Z3 wasn’t enough, Sony has gone even further today, announcing the launch of a new smartphone called the Xperia Z3 Compact.

As you might have already noticed by the name, the Z3 Compact is very similar to the recently announced Z3, but instead features a smaller 4.6 inch display that means the phone is only 8.6mm thick and weighs 129g, and a design that is similar to the Z1 compact but with the new tempered glass on and a edge that Sony calls the “liquid reflection frame.

That frame means the Z3 Compact has an IP65/68 rating, which means it’s completely waterproof.

On the front you will find the 4.6 inch display that has a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution and a 319ppi.

Alongside it there’s a 20.7 megapixel camera around the back with Sony’s Exmor RS sensor and the Sony G Lens. Inside there’s also capabilities to shoot full 4K video, and photos at ISO 12800.

If you look further inside you will also find a 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. There’s also a slot to add a further 128GB via a microSD card.

Under the skin is a 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset with 3GB of RAM. You’ll get 16GB of internal storage with the option of expanding by a further 128GB via microSD.

The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact will be available in orange, green, black and white colour options, for a currently unknown price and on a currently unknown date.
