Sony Xperia Z1 f official, packs 4.3-inch HD display & Snapdragon 800

As expected, Japanese telecom operator NTT Docomo today unveiled Sony’s Xperia Z1 f (also known as Honami Mini) as a part of its 2013 winter/ 2014 sprint line-up of mobile devices. Set to go on sale in Japan around the end of December 2013, Sony Xperia Z1 f packs some impressive set of specifications.Sony Xperia Z1 f

The phone comes with a 4.3-inch 720p HD Triluminos display, Android 4.2, 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor and 2300 mAh battery. The phone also packs LTE support, NFC, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, 20.7MP rear camera with BSI and 2.2MP front camera with BSI.

In addition, Sony Xperia Z1 f features 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and microSD card slot. The phone is also water and dust proof and will be available in Lime, Black, White and Pink colour options.

There is no word on pricing, which will be revealed closer to the actual availability. Sony has also not revealed international release plans of the phone, which considering the late-December debut in Japan, can be announced anytime in between.


  1. One of the reasons Sony, LG, HTC etc. aren’t being able to compete with Samsung is their lack of screen real estate. At almost every price point, the SS screens are larger and often more vibrant (read: AMOLED) than their rivals – Bravia or not 😦

    Sony would have done themselves no harm whatsoever by providing a 4.7 inch screen with the same 720p resolution. Would have only cost ’em a few bucks more, but it would have been a huge tactical advantage over Samsung and HTC 😉

    With ever increasing screen sizes where this year’s flagships are coming out with 5.2″ screens, 4.3″ for a high mid range phone (Snapdragon 800 for crying out loud!!!) seems so 2012 😦
