Sony has unveiled at CES 2014 the Xperia Z1 Compact (aka the Xperia Z1 Mini or Honami Mini) which packs in some big features despite its diminutive size.
By recent Android top-league smartphone standards, the screen is positively bijou at just 4.3-inches, but still supports a respectable HD resolution of 1280×720 pixels, and it is a TRILUMINOS number with an X-Reality engine for extra vivid hues.
Inside can be found a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor backed by a 2300 mAh battery, and like its bigger brother, the all weather handset has IP55 and IP58 ratings so you can take it for a brief paddle or a stroll in the rain.
The Xperia Z1 Compact comes with a very capable 20.7 megapixel camera with Exmor RS sensor and BIONZ image processing engine, and is available in jaunty colours, including white, black, pink, and lime.
Sony will be making some natty few accessories compatible for the upcoming mini flagship, in the shape of a magnetic charging dock and a stereo bluetooth headset.
There’s no news yet as to where this mini marvel will be available, or any pricing details, but will be launched internationally starting February 2014.
