Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact Malaysia

UPDATE: The Xperia XZ1 Compact is now available in Malaysia.

If you’re looking for an Android flagship that’s compact to hold, the Xperia XZ1 Compact is probably the best bet right now. Announced at IFA 2017, the Xperia XZ1 is the smallest Snapdragon 835 powered smartphone and it runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.

Compared to its RM2,999 full-sized Xperia XZ1, the Xperia XZ1 Compact is tiny with a 4.6″ HD 720p display but you get the same flagship specs underneath. It runs on a Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB of RAM. Internal storage is smaller than the XZ1 at 32GB but it still supports microSD storage expansion.

The main camera at the rear is Sony Mobile’s top of the line 19MP Motion Eye camera which can take super slow-mo videos at 960fps while the front comes with an 8MP selfie shooter. The Xperia XZ1 Compact also gets front stereo speakers, IP68 dust/water resistance, Hi-Res Audio and a 2,700mAh battery, which surprisingly is the same capacity as its bigger XZ1.

According to its listing on Sony Malaysia, the Xperia XZ1 Compact is priced at RM2,099. At least, it’s cheaper than the Xperia Z5 Compact which was released in Malaysia with a hefty RM2,299 price tag. However, it isn’t available at the moment. When we try to add to cart on Sony Malaysia’s website, it gave us a “Out of Stock” message. With the price revealed, it is a sign that it could be hitting the shelves in Malaysia very soon. The Xperia XZ1 Compact comes in Black, Horizon Blue, White Silver and Twilight Pink.

UPDATE: Sony Malaysia announces the availability of Xperia XZ1 Compact in Malaysia. It is available at selected Sony Centres and Sony Stores starting today.

Not bad if really rm2099, at least better than the sd650 x compact that selling for rm1999 last year. A small screen phone "nothing much to play" but it's easy to carry around and the 720p screen + sd835 + 2700mah battery means this small phone will have very good battery life.


Nice product and pricing from Sony


u guys really serious???
S.O.N.Y 's screwed phone going for 2099???
who the hell use SONY nowadays?
only stupid consumers even give the brand a 2nd look
what a BIG joke!!!!!


    Wooo chill bro. Why insult other people's intelligence on buying a solid product from a well respected company? Why the bad mood? Did you found out your birth certificate is actually an apology letter from the condom factory or something? Chill man.


    How screwed is this phone?
    Is it the 720p screen? The big bezels?
    A phone is deemed "screwed" due to the above? Regardless of the chip, software performance?

    If specs are your concern, feel free to buy the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 which costs RM1000+ more.


    At least Sony’s phones and icons look unique and they spent more time and resources on design.


Best smaller phone besides the iphone not plus, but the iphone battery just cant complete with sony eventhough ios are better build…and pricewise almost doubled of sony. So this xz1 compact are not completely doesn't make sense..


RM2099 is a tough price faced by Malaysian as Ringgit depreciation is inevitable.

Xperia XZ1 Compact is far more better than ridiculous overpriced of underwhelmed Xperia X Compact. Instead, Xperia XZ1 Compact is a a true compact flagship than the X Compact.

Bringing flagship compact phone is feels more comfortable than larger flagship phone.


Why so late?

I was urgently looking for a good new flagship grade compact smart phone at a fair price to use alongside with my 4.7″ Samsung Galaxy Alpha.

It was nearly impossible to find a good flagship between 4.5″ to 4.7″ that I have to persuade myself to accept bigger screen.

Was considering Huawei P10 & Galaxy S8(big screen, compact body), somehow ended up pre-ordering Samsung Galaxy Note FE.


Spec wise an absolute power house!! Build wise… I’m afraid Sony is fading out in terms of design… They should revamp their whole design and stop with this overused Omni Design elements already!
It’s almost 2018!! But I do appreciate the build quality and the IP 68 certification. And the smaller size is welcomed……
I just expected more from Sony. They’re Sony!! They’re supposed to be Ultra Premium…more they use to be….MYR 2099?? With competition abound in that price range?? I’m giving this one a miss and will wait for what they’ll come up with next year…. Fingers crossed….

the pitifully small battery and annoying volume rocker is the reason why i will not buy it.


Sir, you sure gave a "factual" comment by only mentioning:
– the 2099 pricing.

Clap clap.

Guess all phones that priced more than than are "BIG joke!!!!!" as well?


small battery? 2700mah for 720p display and snapdragon 835.
So u'll get one of the best endurance rating for all smartphone of all time…

and this is the battery endurance for iphone 8…
