Sony Xperia Z1 compact shrinks the flagship phone back down to 4.3-inches


The spec sheet on the Sony Xperia Z1 mini comprises a 4.3-inch 720p (343ppi) display, quad-core 2.2GHz processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB of storage, microSd card slot, a 20.7 MP camera and a 2,300mAh battery. Based on its specs, the Xperia Z1s is simply a miniature Sony Xperia Z1. The phone does not feature anything that we haven’t already seen from Sony, but it is the first 4.3-inch device from any manufacturer in nearly two years that comes with flagship level specs. Like the Xperia Z1s, the Zperia Z1 compact is water proof with an IP58 rating, allowing the phone to be submerged in 4.9 feet of water for 30 minutes.

The Sony Xperia Z1 compact comes in white, black, yellow and pink. Pricing and availability were not released during Sony’s press event. One thing we’re looking forward to is other manufacturers following on Sony’s footsteps by delivering a “no compromise” smartphone with a smaller display.
