The first picture shows off the dialer on the device, while the second picture shows the Sony Xperia Z1s next to a purple Sony Xperia Z1. According to this shot, the price of the Xperia Z1s is expected to be 3600 Yuan ($590 USD) and is expected to be released in Q1 of 2014. Picture 3 shows off the Sony Xperia Z1s as it measures up against the Sony Xperia Z1 again, this time in white. This photo boasts that the 4.3 inch screened mini version of the Z1 will have the Sony G lens on its rear snapper, just like the full-sized original, which carries a 5 inch screen. There is also some talk that the phone will be released under a different name than the Xperia Z1s.
Will Sony be setting a trend for next year with the Sony Xperia Z1s? Will manufacturers that have produced "mini" versions of their flagship models like Samsung and HTC, make their "byte-sized" spin-offs spec'd closer to the original versions? Stay tuned.
