A Polish online retailer was listing a couple of hours ago two unseen Sony smartphones as of today, under the model numbers G8341 and G8441. As previously reported, the G8341 could be the Xperia XZ1 , while the G8441 could be the Xperia XZ1 Compact . Precisely this last model would have been uncovered after finding its characteristics in AnTuTU.
Both Sony phones are expected to officially appear at the beginning of September at IFA 2017, but we do not yet have official confirmation from the company. The only thing we know based on the latest leaks is that the two models would be announced at the same time and that would be carried out by the last version of the operating system of Google as well as by the latest chip of Qualcomm released to the market.
Although the retailer does not offer photos or specifications to share, it mentions four color variants for each of the two devices. The Sony G8341 (possibly the Xperia XZ1 ) should be launched in Black, Moonlite Blue, Venus Pink and Warm Silver, while the Sony G8441 (possibly the Xperia XZ1 Compact ) is expected to arrive in Black, Horizon Blue, Snow Silver and Twilight Rose.
More details of the Sony Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact
Assuming that the G8341 and G8441 are in fact the Sony Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact, it is expected that the differences between both devices will be found in their size and in the screen dimensions, just as happened in the past with the Sony Xperia XZ and Sony Xperia XZ Compact .
According to the leak that just appeared in AnTuTu phones could run Android O as an operating system and would be powered by Qualcomm’s high-end Snapdragon 835 processor . Rumors indicate that the XZ1 would hit stores with a 5.2-inch screen with Full HD resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, while the Xperia XZ1 Compact would boast a smaller screen, probably 4.6-inch HD resolution .
Prices of the Sony Xperia XZ1 and Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact
Apparently, in Europe, the Sony Xperia XZ1 will cost about 750 euros, while the Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact should cost around 100 euros less, that is 650 euros. As we say we will have to wait for the official announcement of both terminals to meet these specifications and wait until September to give good prices for the next stops of the Japanese brand.
