Alleged Xperia XZ2 Compact prototype leaks ahead of MWC

Ricky, 19 February 2018

A reader left a comment on a post from Xperia Blog with an alleged photo of the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact that is set to be announced at the MWC which kicks off this upcoming weekend. The commenter claims that the device next to the Xperia Z5 Compact is actually a prototype of the Xperia XZ2 Compact.

The commenter also says that the picture might not represent final hardware and may be different from what Sony announces on stage at the MWC. The device has a curved bottom design, which deviates from Sony’s usual blocky slab design.

Grisha, the commenter, also states the phone has no 3.5 mm headphone jack and claims the fingerprint sensor has been placed on the devices rear like other Xperia XA2 devices. Finally, Grisha says that the final design will have an upper bezel just a tad smaller and is close to the final design of the phone.
