Sony might launch the Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact smartphones at the upcoming IFA 2017 event. The Xperia XZ1 will be the successor to Xperia XZ that was unveiled at the IFA 2016. While the leaked CAD renders revealed the design and the first look of the device, now we got to know about the UK pricing of both the devices. While the Xperia XZ1 costs £599 (approx $765 / Rs. 49,000), the Xperia XZ1 Compact with the smaller display will be priced at £499 (approx $638 / Rs. 41,000). Both these devices are accidentally listed on Amazon, though the links are now pulled out.
The Xperia XZ1 comes with a 5.2-inch display offering Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution.It will be powered by 64-bit Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor and comes coupled with Adreno 540 GPU and 4GB of RAM. There will be 64GB of onboard storage that can be further expanded up to 256GB via MicroSD card slot. Just like the other Xperia devices, the Xperia XZ1 will be coming with IP certified making it water and dust resistant. In the camera department, there is a 19MP rear camera with LED flash and a 13MP front camera for selfies and video calls.

On the other hand, the Xperia XZ1 Compact sports a smaller 4.6-inch display with just HD (1280 x 720 pixels) resolution. The processor, RAM, and storage will remain same as on the Xperia XZ1. Both the Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact will come with big bezels on the top and bottom of the display. On the right edge of the device are the volume rocker, power button, and dedicated shutter button. As seen on the high-end Xperia smartphones, the power button on the side edge also houses the fingerprint sensor. The devices will be running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat based Xperia UI out of the box.
Both the device sports unibody metal design and comes in single SIM and dual SIM variants. On the connectivity front, there will be 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, 3.5mm audio jack, and USB Type-C port. The device also sports front-facing stereo speakers. For the complete details of the Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact, we need to wait till this month end. Today, we also got the leaked press renders of the Xperia XZ1 smartphone with the same boring design as seen on the previous Xperia smartphones.
