Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact prototype surfaces – rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and no 3.5mm audio jack

Sony is expected to introduce the Xperia XZ2 Compact at the MWC 2018, but before the official launch, the device now surfaces in a new prototype image. The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact next to a Xperia Z5 Compact shows a brief design and an idea of what to expect.


A reader of Xperia Blog has left a comment on a post with an alleged photo of the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact and also clarified that since it is a prototype image, it may not represent the final version. Furthermore, there is also no 3.5mm audio jack and a rear-facing fingerprint sensor much like the Xperia XA2. It has a slightly curved bottom design which completely contrasts from Sony’s usual blocky slab design.


The final version of the Xperia XZ2 Compact will have a slightly smaller bezel on the top of the screen, and the design might reflect the plate + human design concept that was leaked back in 2015. With MWC 2018 event kickstarting in a few days, we are expecting the phone to make its appearance which might have a slightly modern look.
