Leaked Sony Xperia Z1 mini specs sound pretty sweet, CES launch?

Leaked Sony Xperia Z1 mini specs sound pretty sweet, CES launch?These days, no Android flagship assault is complete without a little mini version trotting along behind, as evidenced by the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini and HTC One mini.

The camera-focused Sony Xperia Z1 was made official at IFA in Berlin last week, and again we’re hearing whispers of an awesome-sounding mini version. And hey, we now gots a lovely picture, too.

We’re thanking Chinese-language forum thingy Digi-wo, which reiterates the previously rumoured Sony Xperia Z1 mini specs, and throws in a purported picture of the handset – alongside its big brother – in purple. Lovely.

In particular, Sony Xperia Z1 mini specs are said to include a 4.3in 720p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB RAM, 8GB internal storage (presumably with microSD), and the same 20.7MP rear camera as the Sony Xperia Z1.

Authenticity aside, the notion of a Sony Xperia Z1 mini isn’t too far-fetched. We just hope those specs are on the money.

Fancy it? The Sony Xperia Z1 mini launch is tipped for CES 2014 in Vegas, which gets underway in January. Sounds ages away, but it’s only, like, four months.

If those specs are correct, this could finally be the high end, small(ish) device people have been waiting for. That said, I highly doubt it'll launch with those specs.

TBH I could live with the CPU being a little slower as long as the camera was the same top end.

Jan 2014? Booooooooo

I will buy that without a doubt. 5" is just too big and it's annoying when smaller devices are poverty spec in comparison to their bigger brothers. Yes, I'm happy to buy an expensive smartphone because I want all the features and performance etc, but why does it have to be a brick?

True.
I'd even accept less RAM & processing power if it offered a good camera in a small package.
Nokia launched the Pureview tech with a 4-in screen (granted, a gigantic hump, too). Now their top camera phones are all gigantic...

Can't wait for the Sony Xperia Z4 Mini in 4 years time with it's 6.4" screen :)

Seems to be the trend...

Actually the more I think about it the more interested I am in this one, im hoping the waterproofing is also on the cards for the mini (a key feature for me) and bluetooth 4.0

See what the price is...

Awesome size. Hope it's gonna be waterproof. Adding wireless charging to that would make me even more excited
