We know that the launch of the Xperia Z1 Mini or the Xperia Z1S is pretty imminent. However, we weren’t given a specific time frame for the launch of the handset. But now it seems like the handset is almost nearing a launch as it briefly made an appearance on the Sony website, before eventually being taken down. A rumor last month stated that the smartphone could be unveiled on the 12th of November, which is tomorrow. So this could well be a case of someone at Sony putting up the device on its official page earlier than scheduled.
The mini variant of the Xperia Z1 made its way to Japan first as the Xperia Z1f. So what we have here is the global variant of the smartphone meant for European, Asian and maybe even North American markets. The smartphone packs a 4.3 inch 720p display, a quad core 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 SoC, a 20.7MP Sony G Lens camera, 2GB of RAM, Android 4.3 and a 2,300 mAh battery.
