Sony announces smaller Xperia Z1 flagship device with same 20.7MP camera

Sony has just announced the Xperia Z1 Compact at CES 2014. What is notable in this release unlike most mini flagship variants, it features a specs sheet that doesn't compromise, and has almost identical specs to the Xperia Z1 flagship. The Xperia Z1 Compact packs the same waterproof, metal and glass design, supercharged quad-core processor, 4G LTE connectivity and 20-megapixel camera as the top-end Xperia Z1. The Compact packs a 4.3-inch 720p display, which is a step down from the Full HD of its brother, but the smaller screen size means it doesn't need as many pixels to remain sharp. Indeed, it has a pixel density of 340 pixels per inch,

While the HTC One Mini and Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini both bear the names of their elitist brethren, both models actually come with considerably watered down specs that won't keep hardcore tech fans happy. The Z1 Compact provides cutting-edge tech without forcing you to have a phone so big you can camp under it. Size aside, the Z1 compact is almost identical to its bigger brother. It has the same all-glass front and back, with the one-piece aluminium band running around the edge.

It'll arrive sporting the last but one version of Android, known as 4.3 Jelly Bean. At the time of writing, Sony wasn't able to give a firm word on when the compact, or indeed the full-sized Z1 would see an update to the latest 4.4 KitKat, but suggested that it will be coming at some point. The Z1 Compact comes with the same supercharged processor as its larger sibling, rather than a weaker, cheaper chip. It's a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.

The Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is due to go on sale in the UK and wider Europe in the middle of February. It also hasn't said how much it will be, but did suggest that its similar specs to the Z1 indicates a similar price - expect it to be somewhere between £400-£450 ($650-740). The phone will be available on four colors - Black, White, Yellow and Pink. Look at this official Sony Xperia Z1 Compact video to see the beauty and power of this little monster.
