It is now official. Sony's Xperia Z3 Compact smartphone is now available in the United States. Sony is offering an unlocked edition of the device through its American online store for $529.99.
A few days ago, the Xperia Z3 Compact made a quiet appearance in Sony Mobile's US website. This prompted many to speculate that the device will be coming to the US market in the next few weeks or months, perhaps by one of the four major carriers in America.
And now, the Xperia Z3 Compact is making a splash of its own, even if it is not yet being offered by any US carrier. As seen in Sony's American online store, the Xperia Z3 Compact is being sold in black, white, green, and red colors. The white-colored version comes with both white front and back. As for the black, green and red versions, they all come with black-colored fronts (only the rear covers are colored black, green, or red, respectively).
The Xperia Z3 Compact is very similar to the Xperia Z3, except for some notable differences. One of them is the size, particularly with regards to the display screen. The Xperia Z3 Compact comes with a 4.6-inch IPS LCD screen with 720 by 1280 resolution (319 ppi) compared to the Xperia Z3's 5.2-inch display.
As for the other specifications, Xperia fans may find them familiar. The Xperia Z3 Compact packs a 2.5 GigaHertz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with 2 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM). The device also has a built-in internal storage of 16 gigabytes, with a microSD slot that can support up to 128 gigabytes of additional storage space. Its camera comes in at 20.7 megapixels with 4K video and single LED flash. Those who love the outdoors will no doubt be delighted with the Xperia Z3 Compact's IP65 and IP68 certification for waterproofing. This means the device can be submerged underwater at a depth of 1.5 meters for up to half an hour.
As mentioned earlier, the Xperia Z3 Compact is available for purchase directly from Sony for $529.99 without contract. If you want to find out more about other Sony handsets, you can start comparing Sony phones and plans here.
