The Sony Xperia Z5 may be the company’s latest headliner, and the Xperia Z5 Premium may push new limits with its 4K display, but for fans of smartphones that buck the trend of “all flagships must be phablets,” maybe the most exciting device that’s been on our radar is the Xperia Z5 Compact. Today at IFA in Berlin, Sony drew back the curtain on its latest Z-series Compact model, sharing a phone with only a 4.6-inch 720p display, yet powered by a flagship-level Snapdragon 810 SoC.

In spite of its small size, the Z5 Compact manages to offer a relatively sizable battery, and its 2900mAh battery is only seven percent smaller than the full-sized Z5’s – just like that phone, Sony says to expect two days of battery life.

The Z5 Compact also steps up with the same 23MP camera you’ll find on the bigger Z5 phones, as well as a 5MP front-facer.

Color options include black, white, yellow, and coral. The phone is water- and dust-proof, has a power-button-mounted fingerprint scanner, and measures 8.9mm thick.
