Sony Xperia Z1

An image allegedly showing the front panel of the Xperia Z1 mini has hit the web, reminding us that Sony is also rumored to launch a smaller version of its newest flagship handset.

ETrade Supply has published the image below, which apparently shows the front panel of the Xperia Z1 mini, although the handset can’t be confirmed at this time.

The phone is rumored to pack a 4.3-inch HD display (1280 x 720 resolution), 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB memory, 20.7-megapixel camera and 2400mAh battery.

Current reports say that the Xperia Z1 mini will be the first mini handset to actually offer high-end specs, although that’s yet to be confirmed by Sony.

Meanwhile, the Xperia Z1 (top image) is available for pre-order in various European countries. The waterproof phone has a 5-inch display with Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 20.7-megapixel camera, 3000mAh battery and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
