So, it looks like Sony didn't release Z2 Compact as we expected. At least not just yet.
They released a small variation of Z1 Compact with same specifications in japan.





What we know is different is back cover which is now matte and more colors (lavernder, orange, black and white)!

Do you think it will see international release? Any more difference you know?

AFAIK SO-2F (or whatever it's called in Japan) does NOT have problems with flash bleed. Flash bleed is caused by plastic back cover, that is present only in international version - z1c.

I wonder though, if they added the T2W feature and\or 4k recording (not that I care much about HighRes, but still).

OK, removed that line.

4K not 100%, and I am not sure about T2W but probably not.
This is not Z2 Compact it's just Z1 compact in another form I guess. And I am not sure about the international version of it...

I don't think it is an upgrade.

If anything, it is the budget model.

The frame is probably of different material...
