The Sony Xperia Z1S has been long rumored to break cover as the mini variant of the Xperia Z1. Japanese carrier NTT Docomo already launched its own variant called the Xperia Z1 f early last month. But a few weeks later, we began hearing reports of a global Xperia Z1 mini or Xperia Z1S launching soon. Today we have more confirmation on this variant as it has been spotted posing alongside the Xperia Z1 in a newly leaked picture. The picture clearly shows the massive size difference between the two siblings, but also shows the similarity in design.
From what we know so far, the Xperia Z1S will feature almost the same hardware as its bigger variant minus the size and the display resolution which is toned down to 4.3 inches and 720p respectively. Besides that, customers can expect a beefy Snapdragon 800 SoC clocked at 2.2 GHz, a 20.7MP Sony Exmor RS camera sensor, Android 4.3 and a 2,300 mAh battery. Sony will most likely launch the smartphone by the end of November.
