Sony Xperia Z1 Showcased Along With The Alleged Xperia Z1 Mini
After the launch of the Sony Xperia Z1 at IFA 2013, its time to get back to the rumors. The mini version of the water resistant smartphone by Sony showed up along with the Z1 itself.
With the leaked images we get to look at some of the specs as well. The Xperia Z1 mini is rumored to come up with a 720p 4.3 inch screen, boast 2 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory, powered by quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, Android Jelly Bean 4.3 and sport the same 20.7 MP camera as on the Xperia Z1. The Z1 mini is rumored to make its official appearance at CES 2014 in Las Vegas this January.
These are leaked configurations, as there is no word from Sony about this device. The above configurations seem a bit too much as it shows that the Z1 mini will be powered with the snapdragon 800 processor and will sport a 20.7 MP camera, but if this rumor comes up true just like the rumors of a plastic iphone 5c which came up to be true, the Z1 mini seems to be a nightmare for its competitors.
However, the Japanese major has not yet revealed its plan for the smaller-sized version of its flagship smartphone. If we look at the previously launched mini versions of the phones like HTC One and the Galaxy S4 it shows that all smartphone minis have opted for lower grade processors than their bigger ones, we believe something like a Snapdragon 600 processor might be the choice of Sony for the Z1 mini.
Will Sony follow what is been the trend for mini phones, or will it completely change the segment of “mini” phones with its rumored Xperia Z1 mini, we will have to wait and see what Sony brings to the table.
