More pictures of the international version Sony Xperia Z1s leak out ahead of launch
Of course, as some of you likely know, the Xperia Z1s is simply a scaled-down Z1, though it does retain most everything else from the specs list of its bigger brother. Said otherwise, save for the smaller, less detailed 4.3-inch 720p screen, the Z1s still sports the beastly Snapdragon 800, 2GB of RAM and that epic 20.7-megapixel camera on its back. These are quite the specs, and we're fairly sure there hasn't been any other case when a Snapdragon 800 has had to push as little pixels, meaning that performance will likely be off the charts. Sony's Xperia Z1s is, therefore, in stark contrast to other mini version of popular flagships that have cropped up recently, as those have, without exception, crept up sporting far lesser specs than their originators.
But let's talk pictures. As is plainly obvious, the Z1s really is a scaled-down Z1, and it really looks near-identical, save for the more frugal proportions. This is both good and both, as while it features that premium-looking industrial design, its rather large bezels are equally as unattractive.Unlike the Japanese DoCoMo version, the international Z1s will have that Sony branding at the front, and this is exactly how we're to differentiate between the two otherwise identical handsets.

Yep iPhones have huge bezels. I don't understand why nobody complains about those... Or about bezels in general.

If you look at the picture carefully, you will realize that Z1s size was not 120 x 60 mm.
I think Z1s will have the same size as Xperia Z1f 127 x 65 x 9.4 mm.
And you shouldn't have to care about those cluless people who constantly complain about the bezels, because until this day no one can make bezelles waterproof phone.
For any people who complaining about bezels on Z1s, you should do some bezels comparison between.
Optimus G vs Optimus GJ and Galaxy S4 vs Galaxy S4 Active.
