Sony Xperia XG Compact Spotted: Snapdragon 810 and Android Nougat Offered

In what might be pretty good news for fans of Sony Xperia devices, the soon-to-be-launched Sony Xperia XG compact has now been spotted on a popular benchmarking site. This compact device is the second one after the Xperia XZ1 Compact which was launched at the IFA 2017 in Berlin. We spotted the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 and the device will also have the slightly dated Android Nougat OS.

Some of the details of the Sony Xperia XG Compact have also been spotted on Geekbench. Apparently, the Sony Xperia ZG Compact has received 1334 points in the single-core test while, in the multi-core test, the device got 2954 points. This device will have 2GB of RAM and under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 1.56 GHz octa-core processor. Overall, although the device runs on the Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system, it looks pretty decent.

Not everything was up to expectations, however. Take the performance details of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 mentioned, however. We first saw this SoC on the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact which had been launched back in the year 2015. The Geekbench scores for this year have been substantially lower than the one we saw two years ago. So, either the company has decided to underclock the SoC or one has to digest the news with a healthy pinch of salt.

Sony has a history of manufacturing a great variety of phones in the Xperia range of devices. One of the latest devices that were launched in the series is the Xperia XZ1 Compact which debuted at the IFA 2017 in Berlin. Also present was the Xperia XZ1. Both of these devices run on the latest chipset in the market: the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor which works in association along with the Adreno 540 GPU. Given the specs of the Sony Xperia XG Compact, if they are true, this will be a more budget offering.
