While Sony is still busy promoting its latest flagship smartphone, the
site has posted a purported official document revealing the Xperia Z1
Xperiablog has published some leaked documents from NTT DoCoMo
Japan, revealing the rumoured specifications of the 'Xperia Z1 f' with
model number SO-02F alongside the Xperia Z1 (SO-01F), which has already
been launched last month at the IFA. The former is believed to be the
yet-to-be-announced Xperia Z1 mini.
The leaked documents also
reveal specifications of the 'Xperia Z1 f' a.k.a. 'Xperia Z1 mini,'
which supposedly boasts of a quad-core 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 processor,
the same as we have seen on the Xperia Z1. It is said to come with a
4.3-inch display with 720x1280 pixels resolution, 16GB of inbuilt
storage, 2GB of RAM, apart from a 2300mAh battery. The documents reveal
dimensions of 127x64.9x9.4mm for the Xperia Z1 mini, and also claim it
will come with IP55/IP58 certification (dust and water resistant), just
like the Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra.
Interestingly, the listing
also reveals that the alleged Xperia Z1 mini will ship with the same
20.7-megapixel camera as the Xperia Z1, one of the recently unveiled
flagship's biggest highlights. Additionally, the Xperia Z1 mini is said
to feature the same Sony G lens, f/2.0 aperture and the same 1/2.3"
sensor which has been seen on the Xperia Z1. One of the documents also
show the Xperia Z1 compared alongside the alleged Xperia Z1 mini, which
gives some indication about its expected size
Looking at the
documentation, there are no details about the launch of the alleged
Xperia Z1 mini, but its provenance certainly does hint that the device
may be launched first in Japan.
Prior to this, the Xperia Z1 mini
was spotted in purported leaked image that revealed front panel with Sony
branding on top beneath the earpiece. The design of the leaked front
panel of the alleged Xperia Z1 mini was visibly different from the
Xperia smartphones launched until now.
Meanwhile, the Sony Xperia
Z1 was unveiled at IFA last month, while the device was released in India few days ago.
