It’s summertime in the northern hemisphere, a time of the year that the media traditionally calls “silly season”.
it’s the season where everyone goes on holiday, and actual news pretty much dries up. So the media has to rely on regular rumour and speculation.
Today’s rumour of choice that’s doing the rounds concerns the upcoming Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, with many sites reporting that a list of key specs for the device have been leaked.
Rumoured to be making its debut at Berlin’s IFA show in September, the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact leak seemingly confirms that the miniature flagship phone will sport a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor.
Other specs include a 4.5-inch 720p HD display, 20.7-megapixel camera, and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing cam for those addicted to taking selfies.
As yet there are no details on what version of Android it will come with.
Specs of the device were revealed on Twitter by @Doomlord_XDA along with a screenshot of the phone’s settings:
