Leaked specifications suggest Xperia Z3 Compact to have similar specification to Z2
Specifications for the rumored Sony Xperia Z3 Compact have allegedly leaked. Following after a photograph surfaced purportedly showing the smaller smartphone next to the full-size Xperia Z3, the Xperia Z3 Compact is claimed to have relatively similar specifications to the current Xperia Z2 flagship, albeit with a marginally smaller 4.5-inch 720x1280-resolution display.
Revealed on Twitter by XDA developer DoomLoRD, a screenshot of an "About Phone" screen and accompanying text claim it will have a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz with 2GB of RAM and an Adreno 330 GPU. On the back will apparently be a 20.7-megapixel camera, along with a front-facing 2.1-megapixel version, with the device running on Android 4.4.2.
