Samsung Galaxy S8 Mini Hands Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact A Free Pass!

By  | 

This year was thought to be the year where Samsung brings back the Mini moniker. The Mini has been an absentee for a couple of years now and it left a void in Samsung’s line-up but the tech giant is still not showing any interest in catering to this niche market.

It is quite disappointing because small phone lovers would love to enjoy flagship hardwares that are wrapped inside a small package. The Mini has always offered that hence it is disappointing to know there isn’t going to be a Galaxy S8 Mini.

The good news here is that Sony has bucked up and they are about to offer a small phone that looks to be the complete package. The last good small phone from Sony was the Z5 Compact and fans of the device have been patiently waiting for a true successor.

Today, we can gladly say that the Xperia XZ1 Compact is that phone we have been waiting for as it is built with the best hardwares available today all while having small measurements.

Things that are worth mentioning include a 4.6” 1080p display, Snapdragon 835 SoC and a 19MP rear camera. Pre-orders can already be made at major retailers and we don’t see why the XZ1 Compact cannot conquer the niche small phone market.
