Probable Sony Xperia Z1s caught on camera


If you haven’t heard about the Sony Xperia Z1f yet, pay attention: this is the so-called Z1 mini, and it’s really captured out interest by offering full-sized performance, instead of the sort of skimping on internal components that all to often befalls the fate of similar “mini” versions of flagships. While the Z1f itself doesn’t show any signs of popping up outside Japan, we’ve been tracking rumors of an Xperia Z1s, which would be the international version of the very same hardware. Now, the rumored press event for yesterday never took to place to launch the phone, but we have seen signs on Sony’s site itself that suggest the company still intends to release this model. As we wait for official confirmation, some new images have arrived to give us a look at what to expect.

Thank god there’s a ruler here for scale, or otherwise we might be doubting just what we’re supposed to be looking at. Instead, we can confirm that this model looks to be about 65mm wide, which we already know is what the Z1f measures. And as this model appears to be getting ready for release in Russia, we’d say that talk of the Z1s being the international option was right on the money.

Expect the Z1s to launch with a 4.3-inch 720p display, Snapdragon 800 SoC, 2GB of RAM, a 20.7-megapixel camera, and a 2300mAh battery.


Man, some people can NOT follow directions.
