Did Samsung Hand Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact A Lifeline?

By  | 

Samsung is the dominant name in the Android-powered smartphone industry as they holdthe biggest slice of the market. Meanwhile, Sony is anchored at the bottom of the charts as they continue to struggle on the sales front.

The good news here is that Sony now has an opportunity to increase its production volume and this is thanks to the strong anticipation for the Xperia XZ1 Compact. The latter is the smaller version of the XZ1 and it is equipped with the best hardwares available.

Some of the features worth mentioning on the Xperia XZ1 Compact are the Snapdragon 835, 4GB of RAM and Adreno 540 GPU. With such a setup, the XZ1 Compact should not be looked down on because of its size.

It is also worth noting that it has been a long while since a manufacturer releases a powerful small device and the XZ1 Compact will be filling that void. Those that desire a small phone have been looking at Samsung with hope of getting the S8 Mini. Unfortunately, the S8 Mini is not happening at all and this gives the XZ1 Compact a free pass in sales.

We are not sure why Samsung is skipping the small phone market as having the S8 Mini around will grant them complete dominance in the smartphone world. Perhaps, it could be that Samsung wanted Sony to do better in secret.
