The Sony Xperia Z1 mini is no stranger to leaks at this point. Another
image leak has surfaced and this time we see the alleged Xperia Z1 mini
sitting alongside the company's latest flagship, the Xperia Z1. While both the Xperia Z1
and the Xperia Z1 mini look very similar in design, there is a major
difference in the size.
The images come by way of the Chinese forum,
Digi-wo that notes some
of the specifications of the alleged Xperia mini Z1 which have been
already leaked. The site also notes that the Sony Xperia Z1 mini can be
launched at the CES 2014. The company unveiled the Xperia Z at CES 2013.
However, the Japanese major has not yet revealed its plan for the smaller-sized version of its flagship smartphone.
the Sony Xperia Z1 mini's purported leaked image had also appeared
on Chinese forum, Digi-Wo. The image revealed the 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. The phone appeared to have a
rectangular body with no curved edges. The leak did not include any
details about the internals of the device; however, previous rumours did
reveal some specifications.
The Sony Xperia Z1 mini is rumoured to come with a 4.3-inch Triluminos 720p display, a 2.3GHz quad-core
Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in
storage. The Z1 mini is also said to sport a 2400mAh battery, as well as
support for a microSD card.
Interestingly, the Xperia Z1 mini is
expected to ship with the same 20.7-megapixel camera as the Xperia Z1,
one of the recently unveiled flagship's major highlights.
