The two models could be the next Xperia Z Compact and Xperia C smartphones with strong cameras for the price.
Alexander Fagot,

It feels as if hardly a day goes by without a new smartphone leak from a major benchmark database. The latest leaks as unearthed by XperiaBlog are a pair of new Sony models with the designations F3216 and F3311. The former will apparently be the faster model with its 4.6-inch 1080p display, octa-core 1.9 GHz MediaTek MT6755 Helio P10 SoC, 2 GB RAM, and 16 GB eMMC. The rear and front cameras are listed as 21 MP and 16 MP, respectively.

Meanwhile, the weaker F3311 will purportedly carry a 720p display, quad-core MediaTek MT6735 SoC, 1.5 GB RAM, 16 GB eMMC, and 16 MP and 5 MP rear and front cameras, respectively.

Are these the new Xperia Compact and C Series models?

Observers seem to be divided on the final model names for the two smartphones and which existing models they will supplant. GSMArena and XperiaBlog suspect that the F3216 will be the successor to the current Xperia C5 Ultra and will launch as the Xperia C6 once it hits the market. Its small screen size of just 4.6-inches, however, suggests that it may be a Compact model instead as part of the Xperia Z lineup as suggested by PhoneArena. The supposed Xperia C6 leak last month contradicts current predictions on the F3216 and F3311.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
