Have you seen the iPhone 12 mini and wish there was an Android equivalent to this small but powerful smartphone? May your wish come true. OnLeaks has published a news with some rumors that an Xperia Compact device from Sony may be released - the last device released was the XZ2 Compact in 2018. The new device could be slightly larger than its rival Apple, but the 5,5 inch screen and its overall small size could make it very attractive.
It is not certain which processor the Xperia Compact will use, but Sony will find room for dual rear cameras (one of which will be 13MP), an 8MP front camera and, yes, a 3,5mm headphone jack. As with many other Sony phones, you will find a reader fingerprints integrated in power button.
Whether there will be room in the market for such a device is another story. In addition to rumors of declining production, Consumer Intelligence Research Partners recently claimed that sales of iPhone 12 mini represented only 6% of iPhone 12 sales between October and November. That may have it change since then, but it is possible that Sony to Is addressed in a specialized public - people who want a small but full-featured smartphone, but also they refuse to buy an iPhone.
