Sony Xperia Z1S spotted alongside Xperia Z1; May feature IPS display

While there have been quite some rumours about the Sony Xperia Z1S, a new image of the device has leaked this time providing some additional insights into the device.


The Sony Xperia Z1S, which is supposedly the mini version of the Xperia Z1, is known to feature a 4.3 inch display. However instead of the usual TFT panels, the smartphone may adopt an IPS display. Other than that the phone would retain all the specs seen in the flagship phone. The phone also presents the same design cut as seen with the Xperia Z1 along with the sleek water and dust resistant body.

The Sony Xperia Z1S is powered by the same 2.2 GHz quad core Snapdragon 800 processor along with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory, just like the Xperia Z1. The device also has the same 20.7 MP rear facing G lens camera with a larger than usual 1/2.3 inch camera sensor. The battery of the smartphone is expected to be a smaller 2300 mAh one.

  • 4.3 inch display
  • 1280 x 720 pixels resolution
  • 2.2 GHz quad core Snapdragon 800 processor
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 16 GB internal memory
