Sony had a hit on its hands, at least in some internet communities, with the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact. In a rare move, there was finally a “mini” device, but with flagship specifications to compete with the other high-end phones on the market. It may look to continue with the lineup through the Xperia Z3 Compact, which was recently in the rumor mill. Today, a batch of alleged Xperia Z3 Compact specs has leaked alongside a screenshot from the phone.

The device will allegedly have the model number D580x, with the “x” denoting different numbers based on variant. This lines up with Sony’s current naming scheme pretty well, so it doesn’t surprise us in the least.

The Z3 Compact will also allegedly have a 4.5-inch screen, just like the recently-announced Galaxy S5 mini, but the resolution is unknown at this point. A 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor with an Adreno 330 graphics chip, coupled with 2GB of RAM, will keep it chugging along.

As for the camera, Sony seems to have settled on a 20.7MP rear sensor with its latest smartphone models. The Z3 Compact will carry on with the trend (though probably with more advanced optics than the current-generation camera), with a 2.1MP front-facing backup.

The screenshot doesn’t tell us much more, though this unit is running Android 4.4.2. It’s more than likely that an update to a higher revision of Android (Android 4.4.4? Android L?) will be in order before release, though. Take a look at it below.
