Sony Xperia J1 Compact announced with 4.3-inch display, metal frame and 20.7MP camera



Sony Xperia J1 Compact

Sony has just announced yet another “compact” device, with the Xperia J1 compact having a 4.3-inch 720p display gets official, for a price tag of $490. While Sony is sticking to its 12-month flagship cycle, there are other series it can work on, and the Compact iteration is one of them.

Specs wise, the Xperia J1 Compact looks quite similar to the Z3 compact, but the screen is a little smaller, as the latter had come with a 4.6-inch screen, but the screen resolution is the same at 1280 x 720 pixels with a pixel density of 341 PPI. Internally, there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, 2.2 GHz quad-core chipset along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage.

Just like the other Xperia Z series devices, the J1 Compact has the IP58 certification for dust proofing and waterproofing. This is 4G LTE connectivity in it, and along with that, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and DLNA as the connectivity options. There is a 20.7-megapixel camera on the back, with the CMOS sensor and Exmor RS for mobile, along with the LED flash. On the front, there is a 2.2-megapixel camera for selfies. Both the cameras are capable of capturing 1080p videos.

Interestingly, there is a metal frame bordering the sides of the device, and that is unlike how Sony uses plastic framing on the Z3 compact, although the front and back are glass.

The Xperia J1 Compact will run Android 4.4 KitKat and there is no confirmation about the Android Lollipop update in the future and we can’t really be sure, as Sony earlier as well, hasn’t talked about the update to any other device other than the ones in Xperia Z series. The phone comes packed with a 2300 mAh battery that cannot be pulled out.

The price equates to around $490, but we might not see this device hitting anywhere outside the Japanese market, where the Xperia J1 was launched as well.
