Sony's next compact Xperia smartphone has appeared on the Google Play Console. The 5.5-inch device has also turned up in case renders as manufacturers prepare for its release.

Apparently, Sony is working on another Xperia smartphone, and one that will be about as large as the iPhone 12 mini. According to a Google Play Console listing, the device's display has a 300 PPI pixel density and 1,496 x 720 native resolution, yielding a 5.5-inch diagonal length and a 2:1 aspect ratio.

The listing affirms that the device is the Xperia Ace II, which we reported on earlier this year. Additionally, the 'SO-41B' has 4 GB of RAM and a MediaTek Helio P35 (MT6765) SoC, earmarking it as a budget to mid-range handset. For context, the Helio P35 has eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores and a PowerVR GE8320 GPU.

The Xperia Ace II has also appeared on a case manufacturer's website. However, the images shown appear to based on OnLeaks' renders that he published in January. It is unclear when Sony will announce the Xperia Ace II; a Google Play Console appearance usually indicates that a company is close to revealing a device.
