Xperia Z2 takes over the legacy of Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z1 took over the legacy of Xperia Z, in similar fashion it seems Sony is now bringing over Xperia Z2 Compact “Altair”, an upgraded version of Xperia Z1 Compact which was launched at CES 2014 and its sibling Xperia Z1 F was launched on NTT DoCoMo in Japan in year end 2013. It has only been 3 months since Xperia Z1 Compact came into market,

Xperia Z2 Compact is officially spotted on FCC under code name “Altair” and SO-04F NTT DoCoMo model number. No specification of Xperia Z2 Compact Altair is out yet, though we are expecting the similar specs and features like Xperia Z2 except the screen and battery size. Though it is confirmed that Xperia Z2 Compact “Altair” will use the same 20.7 MP ear camera.

Below you can see the model layout of Xperia Z2 Compact. Front camera location is similar like Xperia Z1 Compact.

Xperia Z2 Compact Altair is spotted running 14.3.B.0.53 firmware version ( android version unknown yet ). Both LTE and HSPA versions are expected to be released.

Xperia Z2 Compact “Altair” will be a hit just like Xperia Z2 among users but what major concern here is the launching date of Xperia Z2 Compact, as Xperia Z1 Compact is just 3 months old so far.

We are expecting Xperia Z2 Compact “Altair” to either come along with H2 Xperia flagship device or after mid June. What do you think guys, excited about Xperia Z2 Compact “Altair”. Let us know. Drop your comments below.

    Xperia z1 compact is a great device, but there is still room for improvements. The bezels are far too big which ruins the look and sound is not loud though headphones. improve on these two and we would have a perfect device 🙂 .
