Sony Xperia Z1 captured the imagination of many with the high end specs and an amazing 20.7MP primary camera. Now Sony plans to release its mini version and it is first coming to China. It is codenamed i3 and it will be either named Sony Xperia Z1S or Sony Xperia Z1F.
It is expected that Sony will announce this device at the CES 2014 which takes place next month.
Although Xperia Z1S is a mini version, it still boasts some impressive specifications as compared to other mini devices. Xperia Z1S will have a 4.3-inch (vs 5-inch) IPS (vs regulat TFT) display with a resolution of 720×1080 (as opposed to 1080×1920). The smaller version of the two will also feature a less powerful battery (2300mAh vs 3000mAh) and it will probably perform better thanks to its lower res screen.
The processor will be Snapdragon 800 with four cores clocked at 2.2GHz. It will also have 2GB of RAM. Xperia Z1S will run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS.
Xperia Z1S will come in four colors and the pricing is expected to be $675.
