Sony Xperia Z1 mini caught on the web

Xperia-Z1-f-next-to-Xperia-Z1-1

A photo has been leaked online which is said to be a mini version of the Xperia Z1.  After Samsung and HTC, its now Sony that seems to be joining this segment of launching “mini” smartphones. According to the report the device will be named Xperia Z1 Mini aka Xperia Z1 f.

The device was  first spotted by Xperia Blog on a leaked document allegedly belonging to Japanese operator NTT DoCoMo. According to the document, the Xperia Z1 f is said to have most of its older sibling’s specs and features fit into a compact package. It features a smaller 4.3-inch Triluminos 720p display, but retains the 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 processor and the 20.7-megapixel camera. This explains why the device in the photo looks a bit thicker than the Xperia Z1. Other features likely to be included are 16GB internal storage, 2GB of RAM, 2.2-megapixel secondary camera at the front and a 2,300mAh battery. It is also said to be IP55/IP58 certified, which makes it dust and water resistant. Sony will be offering multiple color variants including bright pink and neon yellow in addition to the usual black, white and purple.

It’s difficult to say if all the above leaked specs are true. But if they are, then the Xperia Z1 mini aka Xperia Z1 f will be a beast of a machine hiding under a compact body. There’s no word on any launch timeline, but we won’t be surprised if we were to hear more about the device in the coming weeks.

Wanna try the new PS4 in 2013 only? Then here’s the solution! According to an announcement on their Indian website, Sony will start taking the preorders of PS4 soon later this year.

The latest announcement though is still vague in terms of a launch date though it does mention a 2013 launch.

The next-gen console has already been up for pre-orders on Indian gaming website Game4u.com. The website is accepting Rs 3,000 as a deposit to book the console, which will later be deducted from the total amount. The pre-ordered product will be available seven days prior to the launch of the console.
