The slightly cheaper and much smaller model, the Xperia XZ2 Compact has a similar hardware under the chassis, but a 5-inch display with FHD+ resolution instead.

The report has stated that this device will offer 4GB of RAM besides 64GB of internal storage space.

It is said to cost around 599 euros which is approx.

According to Swedroid.se (via Xperia Blog), citing an "industry source", both the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact will ditch the 3.5mm jack.
