Sony Mobile may launch three new Xperia smartphones at the upcoming IFA event this year. Rumors have identified that these devices will be named as Xperia XZ1, Xperia XZ1 Compact, and Xperia X1. The photos which leaked online showed the rear housing of the alleged Xperia XZ1 that seem to follow the design of Xperia XZ Premium, according to Slash Leaks.

A smaller version of the Xperia XZ1, Xperia XZ1 Compact features 4.6 inches of HD display screen, similar processor, and GPU to its big brother and a 2800 mAh battery unit.

Xperia XZ1 boasts 23 MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture while the Xperia XZ1 Compact has 19 MP rear camera lens based on early specifications. Both devices have IP68 certification for dust-tight protection and water resistance.
Rumored Xperia X1 is likely to be the mid-range variation with 5.0 inches of HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, 4 GB RAM and 2800 mAh battery. It is expected that Xperia XZ1, Xperia XZ1 Compact, and Xperia X1 will run the latest Android 8.0 OS version inclusive of new enhancements on the user interface from Sony Mobile.
