According to a post by Ice Universe (famous leakster), Samsung could very well be working on an ultra-compact smartphone which will likely sport a borderless display as well. When we say ultra-compact, what we really mean is less than 5-inches and although that would not be considered ultra-compact in the old days, it is most certainly so now. It's likely that Samsung will decide to go with the 18.5:9 aspect ratio on the mini display, which would practically make the phone even smaller, thereby justifying the ultra-compact moniker.
If you are interested, then you should know that there is no guarantee that the handset will ever see the light of day. Ice Universe makes that part clear in the post itself. SamMobile is of the opinion that this could very well be the Galaxy A3 (2018) or even the Galaxy S9 Compact, if Samsung does indeed decide to launch the handset of course. Let us know what you think in the comments.

A Photo of the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact has been leaked from an advertising poster that shows the tablet in white. Along with the photo there is also some info about the Z3 tablets's Specs.
According to the source of the information, the tablet packs an 8" IPS display of 1080p resolution. It packs Sony's Triluminos screen with the X-Reality picture processing engine and an additional layer to decrease reflection.
Under the hood, the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact is said to feature a Snapdragon 801 MSM8974AC chipset with a Quad-core CPU, 3GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage. There's no information whether a microSD card slot is available, but Sony fitting one is more likely than not.
At the back, the tablet features an 8MP camera with an Exmor RS sensor, presumably with LED flash. The battery is rated in the 4500-5000mAh range and connectivity is comprehensive with LTE, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-FI 802.11ac.
The US variants of the Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact will be made available in the next month and they won't feature a fingerprint sensor. The suitable placement of the sensor in an elongated power button on the side of the phone was one of the major factors contributing to its popularity. But, it won't be made available in the US versions of these devices.
As per Sony it was a business decision to discard the sensor and to us it surely seems like a completely unexpected move. Certainly it won't contribute to the success of these devices in North america. We hope Sony has a rock solid reason behind this.
Sony's primary concern right now is to get things moving in the US, considering the plethora of problems the Xperia Z4v had during its US launch and problems that made Verizon ditch the device completely. Sony had to release the same device after few months under the Xperia Z3+ brand on Amazon and B&H. But it seems like Sony is on the verge of another botched up product launch.
There is a major unanswered question: why would Sony get rid of one of most popular feature from a flagship device? We'd have wait and watch to check out how the story will unfold and how would Sony tackle the any kind of adverse situation.
Today, Sony has started rolling-out its official Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Xperia Z3 and the Xperia Z3 Compact too. Both update are Available Over-the-air starting with the Nordic and Baltic countries.
The Japanese company aims to push the Lollipop for the Xperia Z series phones for other regions in in coming two-three weeks. The new Android 5.0 packaging update brings the Material Design user interface packaged with new themes and wallpapers.
The notifications and lock screen also have been tweaked with an option to customize them. Of course, you can create separate profiles for work and personal time.
Good News for Sony users, Sony is already rolling out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for its Xperia Z2 and Z2 tablet across different regions. In the mean time, the company has promised to release the Lollipop update for the Xperia Z3 Dual, Z1, Z1 Compact and Z Ultra devices the Next week.
