The Sony Xperia Z1 is easily one of the best smartphones of 2013, thanks in no small part to its 20.7MP rear camera, and it’s since been miniaturised as the Sony Xperia Z1 f in Japan.
As we patiently await the diminutive handset’s UK release, we’re hearing it’s passed its FCC (Federal Communications Commission) exams under the name Sony Amami.
The Amami codename is almost certainly just that: a codename. The larger Sony Xperia Z1 was of course widely rumoured under its codename, Honami, in the months prior to its launch.
We’ve recently been jawing about the Amami as the Sony Xperia Z1S, but it’s still not clear what its commercial name will be. What the heck’s wrong with Sony Xperia Z1 mini, we wonder?
In any case, while the FCC doesn’t shed any light, we can expect Sony Xperia Amami specs to be roughly in line with those of its Japanese cousin, essentially cramming all the goodness of the larger Sony Xperia Z1 into a smaller body.
Specifically, Sony Xperia Z1 f specs include a 4.3in 720p display, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 20.7MP rear camera.
A seemingly significant number of people have been crying out for a flagship-level phone that doesn’t measure five inches plus, and the Sony Xperia Amami looks like being the answer to their prayers. Hurry up, guy.
