Back in February, Sony announced the Xperia 1 II (read as Xperia One Mark Two) as the successor to the Xperia 1 flagship that was announced in 2019. There was no Compac model or Premium model but that may change next year according to a new leak.
The source of the info is a comment that was posted on Android Police by a user that goes by “HGHR181”. According to a screenshot of the comment, there will be no Xperia Compact model this year but a source informed him that Sony will bring back its 3-model flagship pattern next year. So we might get a Compact, a standard, and a Premium model next year rather than just one. He adds that he is not sure if all three phones will be announced at the same time.
Sony switched to a different naming scheme last year and ditched the XZ naming scheme. The new naming scheme is said to have been adopted from its camera division.
While we advise that you take the above info with a grain of salt, bringing back the old Xperia XZ naming scheme with Compact and Premium models may be a good idea. A Compact model should also be well received since there are users who still want a phone that isn’t big.
