The 2021 version of the next Xperia smartphone, which has already been confirmed to have one high-end model equipped with SD888 and one midrange model equipped with SD690.
On the other hand, there are rumors that the compact Xperia will be redeployed in the Xperia lineup next year than before.
Meanwhile, Weibo’s famous leaker posted negative information about the 2021 Xperia lineup and the possibility of a compact model.
according to this“It is unlikely that Sony will release a compact Xperia flagship with a high-end chip in a 21: 9 aspect ratio in the future.”, And that.
On the other hand, as a lineup after 2021, the model that integrates the regular flagship + compact flagship is the Xperia 5 series, that is, the Xperia 5 III.
And it is highly likely that the model that integrates the ultra flagship + premium flagship will be developed as the Xperia 1 series, that is, the Xperia 1 III.
Also, for the Xperia 10 series (Xperia 10 III?)It will be an intermediate position between the entry model and the midrange modelIt seems likely.
Is there a possibility of a midrange compact Xperia?
However, what is worrisome about this information is the part called “Compact Xperia equipped with a high-end chip + 21: 9 display”.
In other words, this is a high-end compact model that corresponds to the successor to the Xperia XZ1 Compact and XZ2 Compact will be integrated into the Xperia 5 series, so it will not be released in the future,It may be released if it is a compact model with a midrange chip or a display with an aspect ratio other than 21: 9., You can also receive it.
By the way, the Xperia Ace was a compact midrange model with an 18: 9 display released after Xperia adopted a 21: 9 display.
Perhaps if it is a model positioned like the same model, there is a possibility that the compact Xperia will be released in the future.
