Xperia Z5 Compact announced at IFA 2015

Sony just announced the Xperia Z5 Compact, the smaller 4.6-inch version of its new Xperia Z5, during the IFA trade show in Berlin. It promises the same flagship experience as the regular Z5 in a smaller frame, though a few specs do get downgraded as a result.

That means you’ll still get a 23-megapixel camera in back, a 5-megapixel shooter front, a Snapdragon 810 chip, and a fingerprint sensor built into the power button on the side of the device. However, the Z5 Compact offers a smaller 2700mAh battery and just 2GB of RAM. Thankfully Sony isn’t skimping on storage, offering 32GB of space and a microSD slot in case that’s not enough.

It’s available in Yellow, Coral, White or Black color options, and Sony says the new phone should be available globally sometime in October.
