Sony has announced Xperia X Compact and XZ nearly a week ago at the IFA 2016 event and now we have news that company starts selling the X Compact for the UK buyers but it looks like soon other countries will also get this handset in coming days.
At the moment, the Sony X Compact is available from five UK carriers including Mobiles.co, EE, Warehouse, giffgaff and the O2.The unlocked variant of the device will be available for £359.99 which is around $478 for the US customers but a carrier locked variant will be available for as low as on £0.
The X Compact variant is not water resistant like the Xperia Z5 Compact and company announced this handset with Android Marshmallow pre-installed as OS but the company also promises this device will receive Android Nougat 7.0 as well. As far as hardware specs is a concern, the device is packed with a 4.6 inches display with HD screen resolution. A hexacore Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 650 Soc is powering the device with 3GB of RAM and the base model internal storage is 32GB. The rear primary camera sensor on the device is 23MP, you can read further details regarding the device by clicking here.
I am sure, if you are Sony fan, you are keen to know when the company will be unveiling the flagship Xperia XZ in other markets but as per latest info, the device release will be in October this year. Both the X Compact and the flagship Xperia XZ will be released in US market but the accurate date is still unknown.

Don' keep blaming all the negative things here. There is a possibility of Nougat in a few days. Moreover, have you looked that the primary camera is 23MP.
You have to admit these two plus points in the device by far. And I think these can become the USP of the Sony smartphone.
I have always loved the Xperia range of devices in various forms. And this is catching the eye with the possibility of Nougat and 23MP camera.
Will there be the STAMINA mode there? There's no word on that, so I guess it'll be difficult to see it there.
Sony looks to have priced the device competitively this time as compared to the Z5 Compact.
Right. Looks like Sony is learning a thing or two. But that could be because of the Qualcomm%u2019s hexacore SD650. That could have been a tad better like octa-core.
I totally agree. Either increase the processing power and they could bring down the pricing a bit to make it more competitive.
