Japan gets mini version of Xperia Z1

Sony on Thursday confirmed the upcoming availability of the Xperia Z1f, a smaller version of the flagship Z1 smartphone. The internal hardware is largely unchanged; we’re still looking at a top-tier Android experience.

The Z1f runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and features a 2.3GHZ quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2GB RAM, and 16GB internal storage. Like its larger brother, the handset includes a 20.7-megapixel EXMOR camera sensor and comes with the same water resistance. The main difference here comes in the display: the Xperia Z1f includes a 4.3-inch 720p screen as opposed to the 5-inch 1080p screen.


The Xperia Z1f introduction comes as part of a larger NTT DoCoMo portfolio announcement and should soon arrive at the Japanese carrier.  With that in mind, we might not expect to see it come to the United States.
